42Crunch Platform release, July 2019
Release date: June 31st, 2019
This 42Crunch Platform release introduces two new features, Security Editor and Trace Explorer, as well as some smaller improvements to the user experience.
This release is compatible with the following API Firewall images:
All previous image versions have been deprecated and are not compatible with this version of the platform.
Security Editor is an editing view integrated with API Contract Security Audit:
- Fix security issues that Security Audit found in your API directly in 42Crunch Platform. No need to re-import or upload new API versions separately.
- Jump directly to the correct spot in your API definition.
- See your API definition and information on how to fix the issue side by side.
- Automatically re-calculate the audit score after fixing the issues to see the impact of your fixes.
- Filter out the less important issues to focus on the important ones first.
- Check how many points each issue takes from your audit score and fix the ones with biggest impact to quickly increase the score and the security of your API.
For more details, see Security Editor.
Trace Explorer lets you view the trace of API transactions that API Firewall has blocked:
- Get feedback and details on blocked calls, making protection predictable.
- Quickly home in on the trace of any API from any collection you have access to.
- Check where the transaction originated and why exactly it got blocked.
- See the steps API Firewall processed in the request and response flows, and what was the latency in each step.
For more details, see Trace Explorer.
There are also several smaller additions to improve the user experience:
- Rename existing API collections and APIs. For more details, see Rename API collections and Rename APIs.
- Share your API collections with other users in your organization, or revoke their access if you want to make your collection private. For more details, see Share API collections to other users.
- Create a protection configuration and protection token at one go when protecting an API for the first time. For more details, see Create a protection configuration.
