Nylas Platform Updates May 12, 2021


Bug Fix

Nylas Platform Updates May 04, 2021


Bug Fix



Sync Engine

  • Improved logging around Exchange service account authentication errors when credentials were unusable.
  • Resolved a race-condition where duplicate-named folders get created. The sync process will also now not stop as was previously the case.
  • Revoked tokens could previously still be re-used and causing accounts to stop syncing. This has been resolved.


  • When creating multiple scheduling pages asynchronously, numerous errors were encountered related to incomplete removal of old page slugs. This has been corrected.


  • Not providing send_at param on Outbox send with attachments, will now no longer respond in error.
  • Incorrect date format in the POST /outbox response object, has been fixed.


  • EU Nylas Dashboard availability issues. Resolved by increasing some previously set maximum configuration values.


  • Deleting of a virtual calendar prevents the creation of subsequent new virtual calendars. This is now fixed.
  • Improved logging around Google recurring events

API Version 2.2 Now Available





We’ve updated our API to version 2.2.

Version 2.2 now includes:

Transitioning from 2.1 to 2.2

The update doesn’t require you to make any changes to your application. The API changes were additive.

If you on an older API version, you can review our other transition guides. You can also read more about versioning.

Java SDK 1.6.0 Released






RequestFailedException now creates a Throwable detail message with the details of the request failure.

⚠️ Deprecation Notice ⚠️

We deprecated RequestFailedException methods getResponseBody and getStatus in favor of getStatusCode, getErrorType, and getErrorMessage.


We released new documentation on logging in the Java SDK.

Nylas Platform Updates April 27, 2021


Bug Fix



Sync Engine

  • iCloud event syncing improvement - We fixed some cases of timestamp parsing that we weren't handling well before and would cause the account to stop syncing new items.

  • Exchange (EWS) message syncing improvement - We released a fix that allows our sync engine to handle messages with provider data of any size. Before, we couldn't save these messages, and the account would stop syncing.


  • Fixed notification payload for job webhooks - The job_status_id JSON value was previously always set to null. Now we are passing the correct job status id that you can use with the GET /job-statuses/{id} endpoint.

Nylas Updates April 15 2021





We've been busy making Nylas even better.


We have released a new dashboard feature that lets you search in the dashboard for information. Look for account information, logs, and account settings. Use the keyboard, CTRL + K or CMD + K to search without needing to stop your workflow.

Review the documentation to get started.



Version 0.0.31 is released!

New Features

We added a close button to the Composer cc and bcc input so they can be hidden.

Bug Fixes

  • Previously Composer did not fire fileUpload hooks if no component ID was provided.
  • Composer no longer sends emails without a recipient.



  • We added a not_in filter for Threads. Use the filter for messages not in a given folder or label. The filter supports the name, display, or ID of a folder or label.
  • GET Message by ID now accepts multiple messages separated by a comma.
curl --request GET \
  --url 'https://api.nylas.com/messages/{message_id},{message_id},{message_id}' \
  --header 'Accept: application/json' \
  --header 'authorization: Bearer {access_token}'


  • The docs for Message and Threads were updated to clarify the use of the in filter. You can use in to return Drafts.
  • The documentation for Components was updated to add a method of authorization for multiple accounts.
  • The documentation on Views was reorganized to make the information easier to read.
  • Client Secret was removed from Hosted Authentication since it's not required to complete the Hosted Authentication flow.
