BetterDoctor Block: Doctor Data

BetterDoctor Block: Doctor Data

August, 2017
The BetterDoctor block allows you to access the database of doctors and insurance networks directly from your realtime data streams. Use BetterDoctor to search for a doctor by name, location, or specialty.

Delete-from-history API

August, 2017
We have deployed a new Storage & Playback feature that allows you to delete messages from your stored message history. You can delete whole channels, sets of channels or specific time ranges.

This enables many use cases, like supporting security compliance, a user's right to be forgotten, deleting chat messages, and more. We already have early-access customers using the feature in our REST API, and we will be rolling it out across our SDKs shortly. If you are interested in being an early access customer, let us know by contacting support@pubnub.com we will be rolling it out to all customers shortly.

Email Subscription Page

Email Subscription Page

August, 2017
We've added a whole new page to manage your email subscriptions with PubNub. You can decide exactly how much email communication you'd like to receive from PubNub - whether to receive announcements of upcoming webinars, useful links to features you can start using, or whether we should stay quiet and let you do your work.
Functions limits increased

Functions limits increased

August, 2017
We've increased the number of operations you can do within any Function to give you more flexibility within your code. This means you now have separate limits for external HTTP requests, requests to PubNub operations, access to the KV Store, and for chaining several functions together.
IBM Infobip Block

IBM Infobip Block

Integration between Functions and Infobip allows for SMS delivery to mobile users. Infobip is a leading mobile messaging provider and works with the largest social networks, retailers, and over 150 banks globally.

Power BI Block: Push Data to Dataset

Power BI Block: Push Data to Dataset

August, 2017
We now have integration between PubNub Functions and Microsoft Power BI using the Power BI REST API. From there, you can bring to bear the full analytics and visualization capabilities of Power BI on that data, and enable visualizations on realtime dashboards.
Session timeout extended

Session timeout extended

August, 2017
We know it was awkward when you went to get some coffee and had to login to the PubNub Administration Portal again when you got back, so we extended our session timeout. You can now develop code more easily in the Functions code editor without being logged out. We're also working on some upcoming changes to extend this time even further, while still maintaining our top security rating.
SOC2 Type I compliant

SOC2 Type I compliant

August, 2017

As previously announced, PubNub is now SOC2 Type I compliant. This means our product is operating under very strict, best-in-class, audited processes, so we can offer our customers the highest level of security. To continue hardening our security beyond SOC 2, PubNub worked with outside, independent security auditors to perform month-long penetration testing.

Transaction usage analysis page

Transaction usage analysis page

August, 2017
For our pay-as-you-go ("Large Scale") customers, we rolled out an updated page with all new graphs that show which types of transactions you're using in the system, so you can now see your usage of Functions and transactions in detail.
