What’s New

  • The new Mail Session (Outlook with OAuth) Action Step enables you to establish a connection to a mail server using MS Outlook and authenticate using OAuth to perform mail operations such as reading, sending, and changing emails.

  • The new Credentials for OAuth Action Step enables you to generate OAuth credentials at runtime and reuse them within other Action Steps in the Workflow.

  • The Combine String Action Step now supports 20 substrings as inbound variables.

  • The Tables with AWS and Key values with AWS Action Steps now include a Confidence attribute in the JSON output.

  • The Generate and Modify Date and Time Action Step outputs three new variables to allow easier comparison between dates:

    • Elapsed days: Contains the days elapsed from 01/01/01 at 00:00 to the defined date at 00:00. The result is in whole days.

    • Elapsed hours: Contains the hours elapsed from 01/01/01 at 00:00 to the defined date and hour (Xh:00min). The result is in whole days and hours.

  • The new OAuth Credentials activity parameter enables you handle OAuth credentials across multiple activities of a process.

  • You can now generate OAuth tokens using the Tools > Generate OAuth Refresh Token option in the menu bar.

  • The Use All Users as project home location option in Settings now reads Save Projects and Settings in All Users Folder for better clarity.
