Klaw version 2.3.0 is a minor release with several new features and improvements. Key highlights of this release include redesigned connectors interface, improved Topic overview and Grouping of ACLs.
What's new in Klaw 2.3.0
Redesigned screens with React UI
In this release, we have redesigned some key user interfaces using React to enhance user experience and provide a more intuitive design:
- Browse Connectors: With the redesigned user interface for connectors, you can now explore and filter the available connectors with a more intuitive and user-friendly interface.
- Request new Connector: With the updated user interface, users can now easily submit a request for a new connector.
- Approve Connectors requests: The new user interface makes approving or rejecting connector requests easy. Access the Approve requests - connectors screen to quickly and effortlessly approve or reject requests.
- My team's requests for connectors: In addition to viewing all connectors from the connectors screen, you can now access an overview of your team's connector requests using our newly designed "My team's requests" interface. You can also quickly delete your own requests from this interface.
- Improved usability in forms: We have improved our form submission process by always enabling the Submit buttons. If users click submit while required fields are incomplete or contain invalid inputs, error messages are displayed on all problematic fields. This improvement gives users more autonomy and improves the experience of those using assistive technologies.

We are taking an incremental, feedback-driven approach in rolling out the new Klaw interfaces. By providing the feature flag to preview user interfaces, we would like you to share your valuable feedback.
You can now group Access Control Lists (ACLs) by team, making it easier to view and manage all ACL information in a more concise and user-friendly way.
The Klaw Topic overview has now been enhanced to display one environment at a time for better readability and usability. A simple drop-down allows users to switch between environments.
Regex support on topics
You can now validate the topic name in your topic request using a regex pattern. Previously, only prefix or suffix validation was available.
