Build 7675

August 2023

Fleet management software data is meant to be shared. This month, our team has improved the way admins enable REST API tokens. A powerful way to integrate your business systems with GpsGate, you can share vehicle positions and send trip data to your team's favorite tools. With loads of new device integrations, GpsGate remains responsive to the latest trends that fleet managers value.

Updates don't just happen for GpsGate Cloud and GpsGate On-site applications, we also work to keep our Fleet App as agile as possible. Pull even more vehicle details on the go with the new and improved search function in the Fleet App.

Read on for more highlights from August 2023's release of GpsGate!

REST API token

There are now more ways to send and receive information to GpsGate. We've updated the way admins generate REST API tokens for users. No longer affected by password changes, admins are able to generate and re-generate tokens from within the application. Still secure, the token is secret and disappears once generated.

See this guide for more on the new REST API token generation process in GpsGate.

  • Add link to "REST API Documentation" in application menu -> Admin -> Development.
  • REST API tokens are now generated from the User form.
  • The REST API token resource has been deprecated in favor of the new token workflow.

Fleet App

  • Our Fleet app search function is even more comprehensive. You can now search for any detail linked to a vehicle or user.

Developer & System Administration

  • Update SSH.NET to latest version.

Developer & System Administration

In May 2023, we released a new version of our Device Mapper tool. Faster loading times help system admins configure minute details without delay. Improvements this month include:
