For larger organizations, observability is one of the key aspects when deciding for a software vendor. With our latest release, we added Audit Logs to GraphCMS. Audit Logs help you to track all changes that happened to your schema and content.

A New API for Uploading Assets

Uploading assets to GraphCMS just got much easier with our new API for asset uploads! You can upload assets from your file system or from a remote URL.

It can be used with a simple POST request. The same authentication mechanisms as for regular content API calls apply. Make sure to "Allow Mutations" on your token or endpoint to be able to upload assets.

curl -XPOST -F fileUpload=@picture.jpg <url-endpoint>

You can find more information on the new upload endpoint in the docs.

New Clear Action in Content Form

We have added a handy new clear button to reset field values to null.

Download the DXP report

We recently published a report titled "Modernizing Enterprise Tech Stacks by Embracing Modular Digital Experience Platforms (DXPs)".

The purpose of this report is to highlight how companies can take control of their tech stacks to decide what works best for them, rather than falling prey to legacy software practices that are expensive, hard to maintain, and result in overwhelming monetary and human-hour overheads.

We take an in-depth dive into going over the current DXP landscape, what a microservice led DXP is, and what benefits this approach has when forgoing monolith lock-ins.
