6. HTTP Request Action Enhancements

To provide greater flexibility and customization options, we’ve enhanced the HTTP Request Action. These updates enable you to tailor your workflows precisely to your needs. The enhancements include:

  • Additional body types: Choose between “none,” “form-data,” and “x-www-form-urlencoded” to suit your specific needs.
  • Authorization header options: Enjoy more flexibility with authentication options, including “no auth,” “API Key,” “bearer token,” and “Basic Auth.”

By leveraging the GroupBy option within the QueryCollection action, you can effortlessly group users from the Google Directory based on their department or team affiliation. This powerful combination allows you to generate comprehensive reports that provide insights into the user count for each department, track user activities, and manage access permissions more efficiently.
