    It's now possible to share components in V2. This app helps you to manage components in a central place. It is helpful if you want to build multiple websites that have all the same components and a similar layout.

You can also see all the statistics for your spaces right from your organization account, so no need to go into each one individually.

    Changes in: gapi Permalink

    Attention: Storyblok’s GraphQL api will have a behavior change that will be published at 19.04.2022 to fix a bug of the sorting option of the Multi-Option field.

    What will change?

    Currently the content items inside a multi-option field are sorted by the position they are defined in the content browser.

    {
      NavigationbarItems {
        items {
          name
          content {
            desktop_navigation_items {
              name
              uuid
            }
          }
        }
      }
    }
    

    In this query example the items inside “desktop_navigation_items” (Multi-options field) are sorted by the order they are visible in the content browser. But the multi-option field has a sorting function in the interface to let the user define a custom position. This custom position is currently not respected by the GraphQL api which is considered as a bug.

    Sorting

    After the change this custom position will be used to deliver the content items as the user defined it in the interface.

    To bring back the old behavior and sort the items as they are in the content browser you can use the new parameter sort_by=default.

    {
      NavigationbarItems {
        items {
          name
          content {
            desktop_navigation_items(sort_by: "default") {
              name
              uuid
            }
          }
        }
      }
    }
    
  • Storyblok V2 Beta: Update 14

    Changes in: app Permalink

    In this update of Storyblok's Version 2 Beta, we implemented the following improvements:

    Digital Asset Management

    Private assets with publish date

    By default, the assets uploaded in Storyblok are accessible by anyone that has the link to it. Sometimes you want to restrict the access to only logged-in users, make a protected download area or only make the asset available at a specific time. For all those cases, you can use the "Private" option at the upload modal to make the assets only available via a specific asset token. Now you can define a publish date for your private asset to become public.

    Apps

    Content Locking

    It's now possible in V2 to use Content Locking; this app has been released to avoid conflicts when multiple users want to edit a content item.

    Cloudinary Asset Manager

    It's now possible to use the Cloudinary transformations applied in your images and videos.


  • Storyblok V2 Beta: Update 13

    Multiple assets selection

    You can now select multiple assets, moving or delete multiple assets at once.

    Folder actions

    It's now possible in V2 to execute folder actions. You were already able to move folders, and now you can also rename and delete folders.


    Private Asset Listing

    It's possible now to identify the private assets in the assets listing.

    Visual Editor

    Autosave App

    Tired of pressing the save button? Autosave enables you to focus even more on your content by automatically saving changes while editing content.

    SDK

    Pipeline App

    In V2, you can now create, manage and delete your different pipelines.

    You can manage multiple content pipeline stages.

    • One-click deployment from one pipeline stage to another

    • Preview functionality

    • Access tokens for each pipeline

    Visual Editor

    Preset Management

    It's now possible in V2 to manage your Presets. You can now define multiple default values for your components as a developer. For example, a teaser component can have three styles:

    • Teaser with a background image

    • Teaser with text only and solid background-color

    • Teaser with a call to action button

    To make it easier for the editor to find the necessary configuration of these three styles, you can save it as presets and upload a screenshot.

    General updates

    API Keys management

    You can now generate all your API keys directly in V2 to better integrate with the visual editor. Associate to a specific Pipeline and access level and set specific minimum cache TTL per Key.

    Navigation

    In V2, we have added a new Trial period notification in the sidebar reminding you when it is time to upgrade to a plan. We have also improved the navigation structure, adding new dropdown menus for the apps you install as well as a Help & Inspiration area that will get you to what you need quickly and in a more organized way.

    Webhook logs show you which requests have been sent with which payload.

    Workflow Stages

    In the workflow stages settings, you can now create and reorder the workflows for your content creation. This includes creating new workflow stages so that you can best customize the way your team works. You can assign them to a specific user or roles and set the following stage after publication and who can change the stages, giving you and your team more control of the content production process.




    Assets library settings

    You can set required fields in the assets library settings where the user will be forced to fill out those fields when uploading a new asset. You can also invalidate the cache from the image service.

    Maintenance mode settings

    It's now possible in V2 to set a space into maintenance mode, allowing admins to change the content while blocking other users from editing.

    With this change, the management API delivers a 403 error instead of a 401 error when the user cannot access a resource.

    Danger zone settings

    Deleting a Space can be done now in V2 on "Danger Zone." Deleting your space is permanent. To delete a Space, the owner must re-type the space name and confirm the action in the confirmation dialog.

    General updates

    Filtering content

    We have added to v2 a new filtering functionality allowing your team the ability to search and filter through your content. You can filter through content assigned to you, workflow stage, content type, tags, component, and content items allowing you to enter deep within your schema to better separate and find the content you want.

    Releases App for V2

    We have added to v2 the Releases app, allowing you to group your content changes in separate releases, which can then be published manually or through automatic scheduling for specific times and dates.


    Pipeline App for V2

    We have added to v2 the Pipeline app, which will allow you to manage multiple content pipeline stages where you can have one click deployment from one pipeline stage to another, preview functionality before publishing, and create specific access tokens for each branch. Together with the Releases app, you can schedule content changes across different times and days along your entire pipeline.

  • Storyblok V2 Beta: Update 9

    Changes in: app Permalink

    In this update of the Storyblok Version 2 Beta we implemented the following improvements:

    Design System

    Datepicker logic

    We've improved the Datepicker's logic so that the user experience is more consistent.

    We've updated the Design System's custom fields documentation.

    App

    Data source

    A data source is simply a collection of key-value pairs (KVP). One specific data source entry is a set of two linked data items: a key, which is a unique identifier for the item of data scoped in the data source, and the value, which is the data that is identified.

    Key-value pairs can be used for single choice, multiple-choice options, and as well directly through our API to use them for multi-language labels, categories, or anything similar.

    You will find all the features from version 1, now also in version 2 of the app.

    Assets

    Private asset

    By default, the assets uploaded in Storyblok are accessible by anyone that has the link to it. Sometimes you want to restrict the access to only logged-in users, make a protected download area or only make the asset available at a specific time. For all that cases you can use the “Private” option at the upload modal to make the assets only available via a specific asset token.

    Visit our FAQ for more information on how to create a protected download area.

  • Storyblok's response to Log4j exploit

    Changes in: Permalink

    This notification is to provide details on Storyblok’s response to the high severity vulnerability (CVE-2021-44228) impacting multiple versions of the Apache Log4j 2 utility.

    Context

    A high severity vulnerability (CVE-2021-44228) impacting multiple versions of the Apache Log4j 2 utility was disclosed publicly via the project’s GitHub on December 9, 2021. The vulnerability impacts Apache Log4j 2 versions 2.0 to 2.14.1.

    Implications

    Storyblok’s APIs do not use Java and therefore we are not directly affected by the vulnerability within our systems. We identified one service (server monitoring tool) that has a log4j within the affected versions and applied necessary patches immediately. This service does not have access to data of any customers nor similar access levels to be identified as a risk.

  • Storyblok V2 Beta: Update 7

    Changes in: app Permalink

    In this update of the Storyblok Version 2 Beta we implemented the following improvements:

    Visual Editor

    In the editor, when you switch to form-only mode, the visual editor is minimized and you can still have a visual preview while editing on form-only mode.



  • Storyblok V2 Beta: Update 6

    Changes in: app Permalink

    In this update of the Storyblok Version 2 Beta we implemented the following improvements:

    Switch between V1 and V2

    It's possible to switch between Storyblok V1 and V2 dynamically.

    Visual Editor

    Import / Export Translatable Fields Tools

    The import and export tools are great tools that can be installed in your space to import and export your content to translate it. With the import tool, we added the feature to export content from different languages. The apps were renamed to Import Translatable Fields and Export Translatable to make the name more closely connected to the functionality.

    Discussions mentions

    We added the possibility to mention other team members in discussions. If you mention them in a discussion, they will receive an email with a link to the discussion.

    Edit fields

    As a developer, it's now possible to edit specific fields directly by clicking the edit fields icon.


    App

    My account

    You can now edit all your account details on the new my account page in version 2.

    Signup & Demo Spaces

    When creating a new account, you can now also create a demo space in version 2.


    Create folder

    It's possible to create new stories and folders with the "Create new" button in the content overview, but also inside the editor with the "+" icon on the content browser.

    Coming soon

    Some parts outside the editor are currently still in development, but you can switch to version 1 to use all old functionalities.

  • Storyblok V2 Beta: Update 5

    Changes in: app Permalink

    In this update of the Storyblok Version 2 Beta we implemented the following improvements:

    Dimensions

    With the dimensions app, it's easy to handle different variations of content, for example on folder level translations. You will find all the features from version 1, now also in version 2 of the app.

    Storyblok Bridge: Prevent Clicks

    We added an option preventClicks to the Storyblok Bridge, you can find the documentation here. If this option is enabled, your Iframe will prevent default event behaviors, like clicking on a link.

    Signup and 2FA

    This part of the app is not visible on the beta yet, but we already implemented the signup and 2 factor authentication.


    UI Improvements

    • Smaller padding on the visual editor frame

    • Showing the name of your space on the browser tab

    • Multi-asset fields can now be reordered via drag controls

    Fixed Bugs

    • Various Bugs in the asset detail selection were solved

    • Richtext and Markdown fields were reduced in height

    • The animation on the content sidebar was improved when you navigate between blocks

    • Various problems on the workflow comments were solved

    • The scrolling on the open discussion was improved

    • We had to disable Undo / Redo for now because of performance issues

  • Easier to use image service and auto WebP

    Changes in: app Permalink

    In the past, the image service only could have been used by replacing the domain a.storyblok.com with img2.storyblok.com.

    We are thrilled to announce that this is not required anymore. You can now just apply the modifications you want by putting them at the end of the url.

    Original image: https://a.storyblok.com/f/39898/3310x2192/e4ec08624e/demo-image.jpeg

    Resized image: https://a.storyblok.com/f/39898/3310x2192/e4ec08624e/demo-image.jpeg/m/200x200

    Another big improvement of this method: By appending /m/, the image automatically gets optimized in the WebP format if the browser supports it, leading to a faster loading website.

    To learn more, visit the documentation for the image service here.

  • Scheduled maintenance

    Changes in: mapi Permalink

    On Saturday 30.10.2021 at 23:00 UTC write operations of the management api will be disabled for 2-4 hours due to maintenance work. The delivery api and read operations of the management api will NOT be affected.

  • Renamed filter query operator in_array

    Changes in: Permalink

    The filter query operator in_array has been renamed to any_in_array and we recommend to change the parameter in your api calls.

    The new any_in_array parameter resolves a bug where filters where not applied correctly when using in_array filters with multiple fields. The in_array parameter still will stay active to not break existing implementations.

    See the documentation

    Block Library Categories

    Inside the block library, you will now be able to filter your blocks by your defined categories.
