New RESTful API to manage user tokens

You can manage user tokens using a set of new methods in our RESTful APIs. Here are the new features:

  • Copy a user token, and all associated apps
  • Deactivate a user token
  • Delete a user token

 

Pipelines: Introducing the Pushbullet channel

Use the new Pipelines integration channel Pushbullet to send custom notifications to a selected or dynamically identified number of devices. See how to connect the channel and start building your workflow in our channel documentation.

 

Pipelines: Jira channel enhancements

You now can manage Projects and reference custom fields that are of the type project picker, in addition to managing Comments, Issues, Attachments, and Worklogs. You can now also manage issue resolutions in the Jira channel.

 

Pipelines: Pipelines Activity log access

There are two new ways to access pipelines activity log, making it easier for you to trace data, errors, or inefficiencies, and debug and improve your workflow.

The pipeline’s activity log is now directly accessible from within the builder.

To view this log, open your pipeline and click Pipeline activity.

The aggregated list of all pipelines’ activity logs is now also accessible through a link in the upper right corner. To view this log, open your pipeline and click Activity log.

 

New table report enhancements: show columns

You now can quickly add columns to the new table report.

Access this option through the column menu. Select Show columns and search or browse through the available columns to pick one or more to add to your report.

 

New default behavior for saving parent records

For all newly created tables, the parent record is automatically saved by default when you start creating a child record. Before, the advanced table setting called “Save parent record automatically when a child record is created” was unchecked by default. This change eliminates unnecessary system prompts and streamline workflows. Behavior for existing tables will not be affected.
