Release Notes is a monthly summary of new features, product improvements and upcoming releases.
Before, only organisation administrators could create API access tokens, which created a need to give admin privileges to people who shouldn’t necessarily have access to other admin-only areas such as Billing and People Management. Now, anyone within your organisation can create a Personal Access Token with the level of permissions that mimics their account access level. With the introduction of PATs, everyone gains access to Calibre’s APIs.
Administrators can keep track of and manage all access tokens in the API tab:
Personal Access Tokens will become even more helpful with the introduction of Teams. Not only the newly introduced Viewers will be able to retrieve data, but also Calibre will scope everyone but the admin’s access to the Teams they belong to.
Our Test Agents now use the latest Lighthouse release, 7.4. We upgrade to stable Lighthouse releases as they become available so that you can leverage the newest version.
Soon, you will be able to create an account and authenticate to Calibre with your Google account. You might choose this method to add another layer of security (especially if you use strong passwords and two-factor authentication) or for ease of managing your connected services directly via your Google account and their cross-account protection.
If you have an existing account, you will be able to switch to Google sign in, too! We foresee adding more third party authentication options in the future.
We will send you our latest web performance advice and notifications about new Calibre features.
