Gravity Flow v1.9 Released

Gravity Flow version 1.9 is now available via auto-update and for download from the account page.

This is a feature release that adds significant enhancements to the Outgoing Webhook step, role management and some important bug fixes.

Highlights in v1.9

Outgoing Webhook Enhancements

The Outgoing Webhook Step allows power users to send entry data to external APIs. This step is now even more powerful with additional authentication options and request settings.

For example, you could set up an Outgoing Webhook Step to create or update a post on a different site using the WordPress REST API.

The authentication method can now be configured in the step settings. The following authentication types are supported; Basic Authentication and WordPress OAuth1. The username and password for Basic Authentication are specified in the step settings and WordPress sites that use the official OAuth1 server plugin are added using the Connected Apps tab of the Workflow settings page.

The new Headers setting allows request headers to be specified and the request settings also now include the option to define a Raw Body instead of selecting the field values. This is a great way to send a custom JSON string. Of course you can use Gravity Forms merge tags anywhere in the setting.

The following example will create a post on another site using values from the current entry:

Role Management Enhancements

It’s now easier to find and set capabilities for WordPress roles. Gravity Flow v1.9 adds support for Members v2.0+ by displaying friendly capability names in their own Workflow section.
