Solving the Rube Goldberg Challenge - Eliot's MongoDB World Weekly Challenge Week 6
As we came to the last week of Eliot's MongoDB World Weekly Challenge, we wanted to challenge your creativity by asking you to create a digital Rube Goldberg machine that used Stitch and as many APIs and services as possible. We had some great entries and the one that tickled us the most also had some of the most intricate code we saw in the entries, it stood out as a winner.
Stitch Triggers Get Scheduled
Stitch Triggers are powerful tools letting you run functions automatically when some change happens in your database or when a particular authentication event occurs. There is, though, another workflow where you may want to run functions automatically - at particular times of the day and regularly. This workflow applies to, for example, an evening consolidation run, an early morning validation, an afternoon report, or pulling fresh data regularly from an API. Now, a new breed of Stitch Trigger is answering that need. Say hello to the Scheduled Stitch Trigger .
How to create Dynamic Custom Roles with MongoDB Stitch
None of us want to write lots of code to control what data each user can access. In most cases, you can set up your data access controls in seconds by using Stitch's built-in templates. Stitch also lets you create custom rules that you tailor to your application and schema – this post creates such a rule, querying a second collection when deciding whether to allow a user to insert a document.
