We are pleased to announce that Gravitee.io API Platform version 3.4 is now available.

Don’t miss a thing by subscribing to our newsletter to hear about our new releases and the Gravitee.io community.

What’s new in API Management?

Here are the new features we would like to highlight :

  • New Policy Studio

New Policy Studio

This version comes with a brand new Policy Studio, which is a big change on Gravitee.io.

This has been completely restyled to provide a better user experience and allow more capabilities while designing your API.

The concept of flows has been introduced to allow you to define multiple flows based on simple of complex conditions. So basically, you would be able to provide a condition based on the requested path / verbs but also on a more advanced condition based on your request by using our powerful Expression Language.

Dynamic notification templates

Notification templates can now be changed directly from the UI dynamically. These are still loaded from your own templates, but can be overloaded.

This will allow you to customize the content of emails / browser’s notifications.

Override settings via environment variables

With this new version, you are now able to override settings using environment variables or gravitee.yml configuration. This way, you can configure your APIM without any post actions (REST API calls) to update some dynamic settings.

And more …

You can find the full changelog here and the list of deprecations and breaking changes here. We have also added the following features so you can:

  • Reporter file / TCP

For this, just follow the installation guide and start to play with Gravitee.io by using Docker.

The plugins have been deployed here and you can get the distribution here.

You have questions, suggestions, issues, we would be happy to help you from our Gitter channel.

What’s new in Access Management?

Here are the new features we would like to highlight :

  • Passwordless enhancement

Passwordless enhancement

Gravitee.io AM 3.4 now let you register multiple credentials (devices) for each user account. New information in the credentials endpoint has been added for example:

  • User-agent and IP address of last login with this credential

We also improve FIDO conformance tests with :

Gateway sticky sessionless

Since the beginning, AM Gateway has been using a server side session to back up some context information during user authentication flow (such as login, passwordless, multi-factor, consent).

In most cases, this server session was lost when 2 consecutive calls were handled on 2 different gateway instances.

To avoid this problem, the simplest solution was to configure a sticky on the load balancer in front of the gateways but the problem sometimes still occurred during redeploy or auto scaling phases.

The server session has been replaced with a minimalist Cookie Session in the 3.4 version.

The full JDBC support is coming in 3.5 which will allow our users to use either a MongoDB or a JDBC Access Management distribution.

Waiting for your feedback, we would be happy to talk and help you from our Gitter channel.
