Connector Development Kit (CDK) - Version 4.0.0

April 9, 2024

What’s New in CDK v4.0.0?

We have made an update to our Connector Development Kit (CDK) DSL Library and CLI, now available in version 4.0.0.

This new version introduces essential upgrades including a global configuration object, Raw HTTP operations, and deployment options via RBAC token.

Please note, this upgrade is strongly recommended in order to ensure seamless use of the CDK.

User-Facing Changes:

CDK v4.0.0 enhances the development experience by integrating a global configuration object that is accessible across all connector operations, providing streamlined management of authentication types, base URLs, and headers. This release also introduces the Raw HTTP operation, enabling developers to utilise API endpoints directly without the need for predefined connector operations. This feature is vital for rapid testing and integration of new API endpoints into your workflows.

Furthermore, the new RBAC token deployment method offers a more secure and permanent way to deploy connectors compared to the traditional session tokens. This update is designed to simplify the deployment process and enhance security for continuous integration and continuous deployment (CI/CD) practices.
