Detect Breaking Changes

See the effects of changes that you make to endpoints

The Live Flows view shows the effects that changes you make in endpoints have on other services using these endpoints.

When you make a change to an endpoint, a Breaking changes alert is shown. This indicates that another flow that uses the endpoint is affected by the change, and may not function correctly as a result.

Click on View change to see the response difference.

Click View dependencies to see which other services use this endpoint, and are affected by the change. In the example, two additional services (flows-api, and aspecto-notifications), are affected by the change, with several flows in each. Click on the services to investigate further the affected flows

If breaking changes never appears, Aspecto might not be running on your service in a deployed environment.
