Changelog December 23, 2022


New backend API reference documentation, useAuth improvements and Italian language support

New Backend API reference docs

We created new backend API reference documentation that is automatically updated when we release any changes to Production based on the OpenAPI specification.

This upgrade shows successful and unsuccessful payloads and what to expect from a type. It can also run a test request in the browser, allowing you to see a request and response using your API key.
