Release 245 - January 2023

This time we have a number of usability and quality of life improvements for a cleaner app-building experience. In addition, you can now find installs data on library apps by checking out App Exchange in the account settings. Much like Connectors reporting, this gives more visibility into what’s getting used where and makes it easier to manage Tulip across users, stations, and workspaces.

Hi all,

For transparency, I modified the post here to remove the reference to the trigger debugger feature. There are two reasons for this change:

  1. This currently has no customer-facing impact and only changes how we store and persist logs for Tulip investigation and review.
  2. As mentioned in the original post, it is still behind a feature flag and therefore not enabled by default for any customer.

I’m optimistic we’ll be able to leverage this product effort into making this logging more accessible to end users but that is not currently the case. If there are benefits to enabling this behavior for an instance during the course of an investigation, Tulip’s Support team or account representatives will discuss with you.
