BigGantt 8.3 is here

Discover new features and improvements!

New authentication method to our non-public REST API

Your management data security is paramount to us. That’s why with version 8.3 we are introducing a new API connection authentication method that will protect your data against CSRF attacks more effectively. From version 8.3 on, every API endpoint requires a special token to authenticate the connection.

To keep using our non-public API after upgrading to version 8.3, you need to adjust all your custom automation flows, non-standard reporting solutions and other connections so that they meet the new authentication requirements. Please mind that this change applies exclusively to Server and Data Center instances of our products and have no impact on Cloud instances whatsoever. We recommend upgrading on-prem instances of our apps to version 8.3 only after adjusting API connections to the new requirements. Learn more…
