Define and maintain applications efficiently by using automations (8.4)

Updated on May 3, 2021

Enhanced automations allow for better defined and more maintainable applications. You can easily update and improve the model over time without creating backwards compatibility issues for customers. API contracts now provide the following enhancements:

  • Contracts support embedded pages for more complex input/output types.
  • You can set default values for a new optional input without creating backward compatibility issues.
  • Use the Enum/Picklist type to define a robust input/output model by specifying a fixed list of values.

The following figure shows where to enter a default value in the automation rule.
