2024 release notes

May 2024

New Features

Real-time webhook flow option

We now provide the option for integrators to turn their webhook flows into real-time mode. This change reduces latency for starting the flow if it is not already running.

For flows that run on a scheduled basis, there is no need to make any changes. Ordinary flows will continue to function as usual.

New quota types for webhook calls

We have implemented new quota types to enhance control over webhook calls per minute:

These quotas enable fine-grained management of webhook usage, ensuring optimal performance and resource utilization. The default limit is 120 requests per minute.


This controls calls to webhooks per minute at the contract level.


This controls calls to webhooks per minute at the workspace level.

Please contact support (support@squiz.net) if your contract needs to change the limit.

Exceeding quota errors
Once the number of requests exceeds the limit (the default is 120 webhook requests per minute), further requests will be rejected with an error, and no messages will be queued.
  "error": "Request quota exceeded: contract 5b5ed1cf272cf80011ae7b43 (false) | workspace 59d341e9037f7200184a408b (true)",
  "requestId": "9a315b2c476bd2c6f40a8d739d3f348e"
New Dashboard metric: Messages in Queues

The new Messages in Queues metric provides valuable insights into the status of unprocessed messages and offers a detailed list of flows along with their respective message queue counts.

You can monitor message queue performance, ensuring efficient message processing across your workflows.

The counter shows the total number of messages in the queues. Click the counter to see more details.

Run Now button in Flow Designer header

The Run Now button is now available in the header of active flows, allowing users to effortlessly initiate the run-now functionality directly from the flow designer interface.

Improved email template

The transactional emails for deleting Workspace/Contract/Membership actions contain the user’s name who triggered the deletion process.

Added a new environment variable, USER_NAME, to the email template workspace-invite-new-user.

This variable dynamically populates the receiver’s full name (firstName and lastName) in the invitation email.

The email notifications can now be personalized with the recipient’s name, creating a more engaging and tailored experience for new users joining your workspace.

Updated the Credentials section UI with checkboxes

Updated UI for the credentials section, implementing a cleaner and more user-friendly checkbox design.

Added support for flow variables in recipes

The Recipe author can declare variables in the Recipe and use their values in the Flow templates.

The user can access these variables through $getFlowVariables().{variable_name}.

flow variables in recipes

The usage example of storing these variables can be found in the API documentation  Recipes  Parameters

You can find examples of how to use these variables in the API documentation’s Recipes endpoint, under Parameters.

HMAC SHA-256 authorization method

SHA-256 encryption algorithm is supported in Webhook credentials.

Increased time of possible restoring flow before permanent removal to 48 hours

CronJob value responsible for the time of possible flow recovery before permanent deletion is increased to 48 hours.

Beautify cUrl in the Implement section of the flow-designer

The appearance of the JSON in the Implement section has been optimized so that it is easier to read the flow’s structure.

Enable Subscribe to errors by default for the flow creator

Subscribe to errors feature is automatically activated for the flow creator by default. Users can unsubscribe to errors through the Settings menu on the Flow card. Also, any user can subscribe to flows that are not theirs in the workspace.
