What's New in QuickBase?

This section describes the changes that appear in QuickBase for the June release. See What’s Fixed in QuickBase? for a list of issues fixed in this release.

New QuickBase APIs

The online QuickBase HTTP API Guide now includes several new APIs for QuickBase customers who would like to perform operations on groups of users:

  • API_AddGroupToRole

  • API_AddSubGroup

  • API_AddUserToGroup

  • API_ChangeGroupInfo

  • API_CopyGroup

  • API_CreateGroup

  • API_DeleteGroup

  • API_GetGroupRole

  • API_GetUsersInGroup

  • API_GrantedDBsForGroup

  • API_GrantedGroups

  • API_RemoveGroupFromRole

  • API_RemoveSubgroup

  • API_RemoveUserFromGroup

Account Admins Can Manage All Groups

Previously, account admins could not manage groups unless the group owner explicitly allowed access using the Allow account managers to manage this group option. This option has been removed and users can no longer set it using the Edit Group Properties dialog. Account admins can now manage all groups in their accounts.

 

What’s Fixed in QuickBase?

We’re continuing to focus on quality and have fixed a number of bugs in this release. All QuickBase releases include bug fixes from previous releases.

Comments

Nice to see new APIs being added.

I think it is nice to see the new APIs being added related to users, groups and roles. I guess that can be used in situations where you want to temporarily give access to someone to add/edit data programmatically and then take it away, thus avoiding giving them permanent access that is otherwise not necessary.

Can it be extended to other areas such as temporarily giving access to Everyone on the Internet, programmatically just to do something necessary and then taking it away at the end of the operation?

re: APIs

Hi Surya --

Thanks for the thanks! :) 

Since "Everyone on the Internet" is just a group that allows anonymous access, I think you can use the group APIs to add and remove that group from a role in your app. 

Hope this helps,

--S.
