We've been busy!
We've been working on several major new features that are starting to roll out with this update, including the ability to test your Smart Clause® templates and manipulate data inputs and outputs from those templates.
Clause now features a simplified login and account signup experience based on the OAuth standard. This also makes it easier to authorize other apps to integrate with your Clause account.
We've made some very nice UX improvements to the contract timeline. You can now reverse the sort of the timeline, so that the newest events are at the top of the timeline, and view the details of trigger requests (to see the request and response JSON data).
Download Template Archive
We've made it easier for users to download Accord Project template archives. To do this, simply go to the template page, select a template, and scroll to the bottom of the template details to click "Download Archive". Note that currently we only support downloading Accord Project template archives. We will work to remove that limitation in the future.
You can then upload the template archive to the Clause Template Studio™ or edit the archive in the code editor of your choice.
Adds ability to send test mode requests to the Trigger API, from the contract page in Clause Hub:
This lets the contract owner to test each clause individually before finalizing the contract. Note, that test trigger requests currently incur the same charge as regular trigger requests.
We are developing some features that aren't quite ready for the limelight, however, you can preview these features and help us beta test them by requesting beta access in the Intercom dialogue at the bottom right of Clause, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Clause Developer Portal has had a refresh. Content is now easier to find and easier on the eye!
- The File Upload operation allows you to programmatically upload Contract documents to Clause from your application.
- Template Schema Generation, lets you create JSON schema models from Templates models. This is great for those users wanting to generate User Interface components to interact with Smart Clause Templates.
Trigger flows enable the user to configure inbound HTTP integrations and JSON transformations when triggering a clause in a contract. Steps in a Flow can be chained together for integration with data sources and web services, ranging from simple API integrations to complex and conditional events. Using the Flows feature, users can now easily build workflows that include contract documents! Learn how to create your first trigger flow.
After a Smart Clause has been added to a contract, a trigger flow can be added by clicking on "+Add additional trigger flow":
Use the new flow editor to edit the HTTP and JSON transformation nodes for your flow.
