Version 388

Updated by Leigh Hutchens

Release date November 18, 2020

Important information about outgoing email sender

We have removed the option for using User's email address. This is to ensure that employees receive emails and to be compliant with modern email systems.

We did this for multiple reasons, but mainly because of the feedback we've gotten from users that their employees have not received emails. When we investigated this, we found that in almost all of these cases it was the result of the user's email provider marking the message/messages as spam in their filters even before reaching the recipient.

This change will take place in this release. Your company doesn't have to do anything in regards to configuration within the system.

We encourage all our customers to make use of our APIs to maintain data and make sure that information is up to date. To ensure scalability of our APIs while growing our customer and user base, we have decided to add restrictions on usage of our SOAP APIs. These restrictions will be enforced programmatically and means that we will enforce a limit on concurrent calls per customer to 10. You should expect response code 429 if you happen to exceed this limit and you are recommended to implement a backoff-retry mechanism to handle the limit. We will start by introducing the limit at a higher level which will not affect any customers’ usage on RC for testing purposes within the next month and on Production January 14th. The limit of 10 concurrent calls will be introduced on RC January 21st and on Production February 10th.Note that the limit applies to SOAP only. When moving from SOAP to Rest over the following years, any limits will be built into the API. Please make sure to forward this information to the party within your company responsible for integrations.
