Tyk Dashboard v2.8

Last updated: 2 minutes read.


You can now safely test all API changes without publishing them, and visually see the whole request flow, including which plugins are running and even their individual logs.

We have added a new Debugging tab in the API designer which provides a “Postman” like HTTP client interface to simulate queries for the current API definition being edited.

You can even debug your virtual endpoints by dynamically modifying the code, sending the request via Debugger and watching the virtual endpoint plugin logs.

See Debugging Tab for more information.

Developer portal oAuth support

The Developer portal now fully supports exposing oAuth2 APIs:

  • Developers can register their oAuth clients and see analytics
  • Administrators can see list of oAuth clients from a developer screen

Multi-organisation users

NOTE: Currently only available with >2 node Dashboard licence.

You can now create users with the same email address in different organisations. Users will then be able to select an organisation when logging in, and can easily switch between organisations via the navigation menu. To enable set "enable_multi_org_users": true.

  • We’ve added a quick way to change a subscription policy and reset a quota
