Apify app gets even better
Support for multiple API tokens
You can now create multiple API tokens in the Integrations tab of your account. This means that you can have a separate token for each of your integrations, making it more secure and safer to reset a certain token if it leaks.
More batch operations available
We’ve added even more batch operations and now cover all tables in the Apify app — actors, tasks, schedules, storage and runs. So now you can run multiple tasks easily with a single click.
