Faceted Filtering ๐Ÿš€

Faceted filtering is now available in the spreadsheet view of the database. Filter records with precision to manage and sift through database tables.

The filter action resembles the by custom query functionality of the Query All Records function in the function stack. You can chain filters with and, or, and group statements. Additionally, a wide variety of operators give you the flexibility you need to filter your records exactly how you want.

Developer API - Connect your Xano account securely to other services ๐Ÿ”

The Xano Developer API enables you to interact with your Xano account in an automated fashion. It gives you the ability to consume the Swagger/OpenAPI documentation of your API Groups.

Due to Xano's single-tenant architecture, there are specific authentication steps required starting with the Developer API Key. You can generate a Developer API Key on your account page. Once you have the Developer API Key, you can authenticate against the Xano master service and start to traverse through your account from an Instance to Workspace and finally to an API Group to consume the Swaggerspec.

You can read more about how to use the Developer API in our documentation or watch the tutorial below.

Move API Endpoints to Different API Groups ๐Ÿ”€

We have added support for moving API Endpoints to different API Groups. This feature helps alleviate and improve organization of your API in a smooth workflow.

To move an API Endpoint, open the menu icon of the individual endpoint and select move. Optionally add additional API Endpoints to move then select which API Group is the destination - you can even create a new API Group on the fly. Finally, decide if you want to leave a copy of the API Endpoint in the original group.

You can also bulk-move API Endpoints from the group view by selecting the menu icon on the heading of Endpoints.Keep in mind API Groups have different canonicals meaning the endpoint URL will be different when it moves groups.

Function Video Series: Database Requests

We're bringing you tutorials on every function in the function stack so you can get a better understanding of how to use them. The first set of tutorials are now published: The Database Requests functions. Be on the lookout for new videos as part of the function video series over the next several weeks.

Google OAuth with Xano Webflow

Enable your Webflow users to log in using Google. This video reviews OAuth2, which is the mechanism used to enable authentication with a third-party service, how you can use the no-code backend Xano to enable your users to sign in with Google, and finally, how to bring it all together using JavaScript and Webflow.
