  • Dependencies (#1320): package.json: Use lodash.merge module instead of lodash. Note: An npm install --production is required on \wfgen\graphql after the upgrade.

Webhooks v3.0.0

  • Version updated from 2.0.0 to 3.0.0.

  • Breaking change (#1343): Webhooks now return an HTTP 404 error code for a missing token in the URL or an invalid token, instead of an HTTP 403 error code. An HTTP 403 error code is now returned for an invalid, archived, or inactive associated user.

  • Dependencies (#1340): package.json: Removed all development depencencies from the production build. Note: An npm install --production is required on \wfgen\hooks after the upgrade.


  • REMINDER: For clients currently hosting WorkflowGen on a database server older than MS SQL 2012 or Oracle 12c, we highly recommend upgrading to MS SQL server 2016 or Oracle 12c for the best performance and to support JSON native data fields that will used in future WorkflowGen releases.
