In the blink of an eye, January is over!
The holiday season didn't dampen the pace of enhancing our consumers' experience with our products. While we all enjoyed a well earned year-end break, there was still a lot of activity amongst the Redocly product teams.
Let's have a quick look at our new features, enhancements and documentation-related news from January 2022, and also some you may have missed from December 2021 (it was the holiday season, so we won't hold that against you!)
Hot off the press!
You're in for a treat: we revamped and published our brand new website yesterday. This new site has been fully redesigned to enhance your experience with our products, know more about our mission, read our technical docs, and of course get started on creating superior API docs.
Head over to Redocly to check it out.
Download proxy bundles for Apigee integration
Enterprise customers can use the Settings > API gateways page to download Apigee X and Apigee Edge proxy bundles.
Disable default URL setting
Added an option to disable the default
redoc.ly URL in the custom domain settings for Reference and Portal projects.
Access Redocly compliance reports
Using the newly added Security section under settings, you can access Redocly compliance reports and other documents related to the security of our services.
We've made tooltips more informative throughout the Workflows interface. Hovering over text like Last updated ... ago shows the exact date and time when the version or project was updated.
Configure organization-level role privileges
Customers on the Enterprise plan can configure organization-level role privileges. For more information, read the role privileges topic.
Edit environment variables
You can now edit environment variables for API registry and portals. To find out how to do this, read our environment variables settings topic.
Support for inline OIDC configuration
Implemented support for inline OIDC configuration in the Settings > Identity providers > OpenID Connect dialog.
Organization owners can provide the configuration manually by selecting the Insert configuration as JSON option in the dialog.
Access your billing history
Organization owners now have access to the billing history. Use the Settings > Billing page to view details about your subscription and usage limits.
New format for API registry links
The registry API uses a new format for bundle and assets links. The old format is deprecated, and we recommend switching to the new format.
- Bundle links
- Assets links
- Old bundle link format - https://api.test.org/registry/org/api/version/bundle/main/uuid/openapi.yaml + New bundle link format + https://api.test.org/registry/bundle/org/api/version/openapi.yaml?branch=main&job=uuid
Link for copying folder assets
The Assets page in the API registry shows the Copy link button for folder assets.

It's never a dull moment with the documentation team at Redocly. While our product team is growing rapidly and adding some amazing new features, the tech writing team has been busy working with them to document and improve our developer experience.
Across December and January, we added new topics for:
- Role privileges settings
- Apigee instructions for mdx files
- Custom registry assets
- Portal redirect guide
- Environment variables settings
- Disable redoc.ly URL setting
- Security reports
While the developer team is growing quite rapidly, we are still on the lookout for a couple of documentation and developer experience professionals right now.
The technical writing team at Redocly has been pretty busy with some cool docs stuff, and are a great bunch of folks to work with.
