Recipe floating toolbar

The Workato community has grown quickly in 2018 and we’re seeing many citizen integrators taking on complex integration scenarios, building sophisticated recipes that help their companies succeed with automation.

The implementation of a floating recipe toolbar ensures that users see the tools they need every step of the way while configuring their recipes. We’ve identified the buttons that users need most while in the middle of their 50-step recipe— the start/test and save buttons, so you no longer have to scroll to the top of the page to access them!

The toolbar appears the moment you scroll past the recipe header and is our first step in improving the recipe builder UI. Try it out today!

HTTP connector V2

Since the HTTP connector has been introduced as our trusty universal adapter, Workato users have created hundreds of recipes with it, connecting Workato to any app with API endpoints. The new connector introduces a wizard configuration, guiding users through building HTTP actions.

One of the exciting new features we’re introducing in this new wizard: It recommends a HTTP configuration by simply entering a request URL that it recognizes, making the configuration process efficient and simply magical! Check out the gif below!

The new implementation also validates the HTTP requests and lets users know their API response instantly, without having to run the recipe. This robust testing feature will hopefully make the HTTP building and testing process much faster and painless for users.

Workato developer

The developer page showcases a myriad of applications that have been developed with the SDK. These connectors have been curated by the Workato team and are ready for installation and use. The page also includes useful links to help users get started in creating their own adapters for use and even for listing on our sites.
