Introducing API Limits

Along with the release of DreamFactory 2.5.0, we added the ability to control and limit API calls to your DreamFactory instance on several levels. This feature is currently available in DreamFactory Gold. The API limits feature makes it easy to set limits on an entire DreamFactory instance, for a specific user, role, or service. Additionally, you can set limits for each user, where every user will get a separate counter.

DreamFactory's Smart Logging Service

Introducing DreamFactory's Event-Driven Log Service In DreamFactory 2.3.1 we introduced the Log service supporting Logstash, which allows you to send any log messages to a Logstash service, utilize the power of ELK stack, and get REST API usage data using visual tools like Kibana. However, there was one limitation: the DreamFactory Logstash service wasn't smart enough to do anything on its own.

Wrangling Your Data with Database Functions

One of the fundamental goals of the DreamFactory platform is to make it easy to get the data you want, in the format you want, from the sources you have available. Sometimes the type and/or format of the data in the database isn't easy to pass to and from a client RESTfully, particularly using JSON or XML payloads. DreamFactory's database functions support solves this problem.
