Release Notes: Fastly Web Application

2019-07-16 Release Notes

Fixed

  • You have a whole bunch of API tokens on your account, but you're only able to see the first 20 of them. Has this ever happened to you? What a pain! Well, we've fixed this so you can once again use pagination controls to see all of your amazing API tokens.
  • Setting up logging endpoints with Splunk requires that you provide a URL. We now make this very clear and obvious instead of keeping it to ourselves until you don't enter one.

2019-07-11 Release Notes

Improvement

  • The Submit button on the forgot password page now properly disables itself while sending you a reset email.

2019-03-01 Release Notes

Fixed

  • We've recently given the X-Forwarded-For some self-esteem training. Now, any time you're viewing request settings, X-Forwarded-For will no longer steal the spotlight and prevent the other details from displaying.

2019-02-28 Release Notes

Fixed

  • When searching your services by domain name, we've made sure your results start on page one, no matter what page you might have been on before, which should alleviate that "walking into the middle of a conversation with no idea what's going on" feeling.
  • We've made certain to let you know when creating a new service fails with a big shiny error message instead of, well, no useful feedback at all.
  • You know that thing where a field would show up in response to something you clicked, but the field wouldn't have focus? Good news! Those fields are now very focused and ready to help! No more extra clicks!
  • On some occasions, engineers with limited access to services could be temporarily prevented from editing services they themselves had created. We've adjusted some knobs to ensure that doesn't happen anymore.
  • You can add comments to active versions now! No more cloning just to make a helpful note to yourself and others!

2019-02-20 Release Notes

Fixed

  • We've fixed an issue where tax addresses couldn't be properly updated.
  • We've allowed users with multiple services to interact with two distinct services across several tabs and windows.

2018-12-12 Release Notes

Fixed

  • We've removed the ability to edit a dictionary item key in the web interface to avoid duplicating records (values can still be edited). To change a key you need to delete the existing one first.
  • We've clarified the information icon help text that explains when account API tokens timestamps get updated. This should make accidental deletions a little less likely.

2018-10-31 Spooky Release Ghosts Notes

Improvement

  • We've busted a spooky 👻 bug on the version page where the service switcher wasn't working.

2018-10-30 Spooky Release Ghosts Notes

2018-09-06 Release Notes

  • We've added drop shadow styling to several button classes.

Fixed

  • If you tried to enable BigQuery logging during onboarding, you may have seen a message about a missing translation instead of the words "Enable a BigQuery endpoint." We've fixed that.

2018-08-30 Release Notes

New

  • You can now resend invitations when they get lost in the mail or are otherwise swallowed by the great digital void on their way to a new user.

2018-08-28 Release Notes

Fixed

  • You weren't hallucinating; every so often you may have seen very old versions of the web application flit past. We've taken our own advice and fixed the caching settings so this doesn't happen again.

2018-08-20 Release Notes

Fixed

  • If you ever tried deleting your current session token from the Fastly application, you may have noticed that the universe bends in strange ways and suddenly found yourself locked out of your account. We've re-calibrated the Large Token Collider to ensure this doesn't happen again.
  • You know that thing where you try to click on something but it only works if you click on the text? Yeah, we think that's a pain too, so we fixed that problem for a few navigation links and now the entire navigation button is clickable. So much room for activities!
  • When configuring a service, sometimes users who don't have permission to detach a request condition were still being shown a link to do so. We've reviewed our rules and regulations handbook and made sure those links only show up for users who are allowed to perform those actions.

2018-08-16 Release Notes

Improvement

  • We've given our secondary navigation elements some extra love and attention to make sure they are all looking their best and brightest, especially when your mouse hovers over them.

Fixed

  • Users who use SSO to sign into the Fastly application were being prevented from creating API tokens because our security was a little too tight. We've had a one-on-one with the application and it should now properly respect your credentials.

2018-08-14 Release Notes

Fixed

  • The application used to briefly show an error page before redirecting you to the sign in page. We've picked ourselves up, dusted ourselves off and learned from our mistakes.
  • We closed a tear in the space-time continuum that allowed skipping ahead in the initial onboarding process.
  • Speaking of onboarding, sometimes when things went wrong and error messages wouldn't get displayed. In the interest of being more helpful, we've made sure that those errors are communicated to you at the right time.
  • Have you clicked on a button and found yourself wondering if anything actually happened? That sure sounds like a bummer of a time, so we made sure the Create button on the New Service screen shows an indicator while your request is in progress.

2018-08-08 Release Notes

Improvement

Fixed

Fixed

2018-07-13 Release Notes

New

  • Editing things on the Custom VCL or VCL snippets pages? You can now use command-F and ctrl-F to bring up a search box.

Improvement

  • Exact casing is no longer required when searching for invitations or users in the account management interface. Search in all lowercase like nobody's watching!

Fixed

  • We've fixed the DNS details link on the Domains page where you manage shared TLS certificates.

2018-07-03 Release Notes

2018-06-29 Release Notes

Improvement

Fixed

  • The Show VCL feature no longer crashes when VCL is very long. Likewise, large VCL Snippets should show marked performance improvements.

2018-03-01 Release Notes

Improvement
