by Cosmic on February 23, 2022

We are excited to announce big updates to the new Cosmic dashboard. Newly available features include:

1. Webhooks
2. Smart Views
3. Bulk Edit
4. Search & Replace

TL;DR
Sign up for the alpha preview to check out the new features.


Webhooks

We are thrilled to unveil the new webhooks feature. You will notice that we have done a complete redesign of the logic, which will make adding webhooks (one of our most popular add-on features) much easier. Check out the details in the video below and follow these steps:

1. Create a new endpoint using a request intercepting tool like Beeceptor.
2. Go to Bucket Settings > Webhooks and add the URL in a new webook.
3. Set your options for webhook trigger resource and event.

4. Next, update a resource to trigger the event.
5. Go back to Beeceptor to see the response data.

Smart Views

One of the most handy features in the Cosmic dashboard is our smart views, which makes it easy to save custom content filtering for easy access later. We think you will like the new approach to this feature which got even better with our new powerful filtering capabilities.

Smart view developer tools
And since we are focused on creating the best developer experience possible, in any smart view, you can open up the developer tools drawer and get access to the smart view example query code to add to any website or application. Great for those of us that like a simple copy + paste 😉 

To check out the new smart views, follow these steps and watch the demo video:

1. Go to the Objects table and set a filter on the top of the Objects table.
2. Click the create smart view button on the top of the Objects table.
3. Go to the dev tools drawer to get the dev tools query.

Bulk Edit

Bulk editing content in the dashboard just got much simpler as well. Simply select the Objects to edit, include the fields that will be bulk edited, and make your changes.

Search & Replace

Much like bulk editing, searching and replacing content across multiple content in the dashboard is a breeze.
