API Platform has a new major update: API Proxy

API Proxy is now generally available! When creating an API collection, users can choose to BYO-API instead of building one using recipes. This is a great way to publish existing APIs and get all the benefits of a modern API gateway. It is a lightweight service that has a low memory footprint, capable of handling very high volume with low latency.


  • Simple setup
  • High capacity (upwards of 10k RPS)
  • Low latency of 5ms
  • No concurrency limit

Proxy serves generic APIM use cases while API recipes support complex use cases. Together, the API Platform offers a holistic approach to API management. As with all things Workato, it remains cloud-native, LCNC and no devOps.

Workato’s API Platform started with API recipes as a backend. This has been very successful with our customers because they can build APIs with complex logic, read/write data to apps, and publish using an enterprise-grade gateway, without any code.
In the last year, we observed a need for a more traditional approach to API management use cases. Customers wanted us to act simply as a gateway for their existing APIs. They didn’t need complex logic and wanted us to support simple requests proxy it at a much larger scale, with lower latency and at a fraction of the cost.

OPA 23.0 is available! 

 We're happy to announce that a new version of the on-prem agent has been released!

Major release with logging service announcement, support for Kafka protobuf, and several bug fixes both for OPA and SAP.
We have released an extension to our logging service - on-prem agent logs.

  • Users can enable the visibility of the on-prem agent logs from their on-prem group-level settings - see the screenshot below.
  • Once the feature is enabled, the logs are routed to the logging service view. OPA logs were enriched with job ID and recipe ID information.
  • Users can have easy access to the OPA logs. This will be useful to search, audit and troubleshoot the specific recipes or adapters, for example, SAP, allowing easy access to the SAP logs.

Check our documentation for more info about the release notes.
