    Chris Lewis · 6 months ago

    The EVRYTHNG Dashboard has quite a few options for customisation, from the account logo and high-level sections, to the layout of widgets on each dashboard page, and the fine-grained configuration each widget includes.

          Chris Lewis · 10 months ago


          When dealing with a complex API with many different possible types of request, it can be difficult to know exactly how to interact with it. For example, what is the correct input data for a given request? What data can I expect to receive in a given response? Being certain about the...

                Application User API Update

                Chris Lewis · about a year ago

                As part of ongoing security enhancements, we are updating the Application User API to introduce an additional check when updating the password field.

                Previously, a PUT /users/:evrythngUser request by (and only by) that Application User's API Key would update the password to the value include...

                  Dominique Guinard · about a year ago

                  As many of you probably heard a severe vulnerability has been discovered in WPA2. This is important as WPA2 is the most widespread WiFi security protocol and it is used by a vast majority of routers, mobile phones, computers and IoT devices to secure WiFi communication. The details of the exploit (...

                    New Time Endpoint

                    Evrythng · about a year ago

                    As you probably have read we are phasing out our support for non-TLS APIs and forcing TLS 1.1+ for all communication with the EVRYTHNG platform. This is part of our continuous improvements to ensure that we kee...

                      Reminder: Security Certificate Transition

                      On the 23rd February we announced that we would be transitioning to a new security certificate ahead of the expiry of the old one, and also to upgrade from the deprecated SHA1 scheme.

                      At this time we strongly recommended ...

                          Security Enhancements: Retiring TLS 1.0, Forcing TLS

                          Chris Lewis · about a year ago

                          As part of our continuous efforts to improve the security of our platform, we will be upgrading our TLS policies.

                          First, as of September 6st 2017, TLS 1.0 connections will no longer be accepted by our APIs (Pub/Sub and HTTP). This means clients will ideally have to support TLS 1.2 (although TLS...

                            We will soon be making some changes to how actions and Thng/product property histories operate. Currently, all actions and property update histories are preserved indefinitely for all Thngs/products on all accounts. This will change to introduce some sensible limits on how long these items of data w...

                              Turning a Page: Pagination is Changing

                              Chris Lewis · about a year ago

                              Pagination of EVRYTHNG resources is not as straightforward as we would like it to be. The chief reason for this is that the behavior of pagination varies in small unpredictable ways depending on the type of resource that you are paginating. For example, there are different HTTP headers or query para...
