Customize Core Portal Pages
Customization of the 
API Developer Portal
 pages is made easy by bundling all customized pages in a zip file and uploading on portal. The following pages can be customized:
  • Home
  • Login
  • Sign Up
  • Account Setup
  • Reset Password
  • New Password
You (Portal or Tenant administrator) can either use templates or use your own pages. A list of APIs are also provided to ensure that the pages work as expected. For more information, see Customize Core Pages.
Custom Domain Names
The Administrator can change the default URL to a custom domain name. For more information, see Set Up Custom Domain Names
Encrypt API Keys and Secrets
With this release, all key and secret attributes on applications (also known as API keys and secrets) have been encrypted.
 Only Portal database keys and secrets are encrypted. If you are using the OAuth Toolkit (OTK), data will be decrypted prior to sync with the OTK database.
Jarvis Externalization for Improved Performance and Stability
Jarvis is now run as a separate analytics service that the 
API Developer Portal
 connects to. This service decoupling addresses performance issues and stability improvements. See Integrate Jarvis Analytics 
 Set up external Jarvis and migrate your existing Jarvis data before installing or upgrading to the new 
API Developer Portal
. Portal upgrade will fail if existing data has not been migrated. For more information, see Configure External Jarvis Service.
Set Jarvis Data Retention Period
You can now set a data retention period for your Jarvis service. The optimum retention period will depend on your volume of usage and available nodes per component. For more information, see Jarvis Hardware Optimizer.
Map Developers to Multiple Organizations
Administrators can now assign Developers to multiple organizations and corresponding roles. This applies to developers who were added in Portal as well as developers who log in to Portal using an external authentication scheme. For the externally authenticated developers, the Portal administrator has to set the authorization type of the corresponding authentication scheme to Portal. The authorization type field is added in this release and is available while adding or editing the user authentication scheme.

Migrate PostgreSQL Data to MySQL
You can now migrate your PostgreSQL database to a production-ready external MySQL database. For more information, see Configure an External Database.
Important!
 The packaged database migration script is currently non-functional. We apologize for the inconvenience. 
 
Configure Cookie Banner
The Administrator can now enable or disable cookie banners to convey the cookie usage and fulfill the legal requirements. The content in the cookie banner can also be customized. For more information, see Customize Page Appearance.
Audit Logs
With audit logs, the Administrator can now see a history of actions that are performed on certain objects. The Administrator can also view and sort audit logs in the UI or using an API call. Audit logs can be filtered and exported using an API call. For more information, see Audit Logs.
