# 2023.3 API Release Notes

## New APIs

  • We've added a new [OAuth 2.0 API](πŸ”—ο»Ώ) for authenticating API calls programmatically. Also check out the [code recipe](πŸ”—ο»Ώ) and [admin user guide](πŸ”—ο»Ώ).

  • We've added new APIs for [managing privacy settings](πŸ”—ο»Ώ) and [member permissions](πŸ”—ο»Ώ) for catalog objects. In this first release, only table objects can be managed.

  • We created a new API for [uploading data dictionaries](πŸ”—ο»Ώ).

## New Endpoints

  • We've added new endpoints for [listing change requests](πŸ”—ο»Ώ), [creating change requests](πŸ”—ο»Ώ), and [showing details of those requests](πŸ”—ο»Ώ). Check out the recipe for [creating workflow requests in bulk](πŸ”—ο»Ώ).

  • We added a new version of the Conversations API. The new version has the following improvements:

    • We added endpoints for [managing assignees](πŸ”—ο»Ώ) for Conversations. Assignees can now be groups in addition to users.

    • We've added indicators for the number of replies and whether a conversation has been deleted.

    • You can now filter conversations by their creation date, the date of their last response, or whether the conversation has answers.

  • There's a new endpoint to [get a list of available OCF connectors](πŸ”—ο»Ώ) for a given native connector, along with the applicable data sources. This can help identify the right connectors and data sources when migrating from native to OCF connectors.

## Updated

  • The Data Sources (Native) API has been improved so the [Bulk migrate data sources to OCF](πŸ”—ο»Ώ) endpoint's response includes the Alation URL for each data source, and the three outcomes of migration are more clearly named.
