We released the following updates since 8.56:


We’ve added new graphs to monitor transcoder activity in the Site Activity Monitor :tada:

As an Admin, you now have more tools to monitor the activity of the ShotGrid transcoder. Learn more about these graphs here.

Bug fixes:

Filter Panel

  • We’ve fixed a bug that was preventing the filter panel from correctly displaying filter groups that contained an invalid filter. This should now work as expected. [SG-33085]

Field (Administration)

  • Fixed an issue which could occur when attaching a file to a multi-entity field of a file type. [SG32782]


  • Fixed an bug where an error would occur if viewing the Gantt chart, if there was a milestone task with no start date. [SG-31415]


  • Fixed an issue where in some cases after duplicating a permission role a user would have access to Configure Form Layout when there should be no access to the feature. [SG-30990]

Python API

  • We’ve corrected a problem that was causing errors when making XML-RPC calls to the /api3 endpoint. You should no longer see the “Response from server does not contain valid XML” message. [SG-33296]
  • We’ve resolved a technical glitch that previously allowed Task Template Tasks to be linked to a Project through the Python API. [SG-27640]

Task Templates

  • Fixed an issue where the Entity’s Global page was not respecting the ‘Restrict to Project’ field in Task Templates. [SG-31859]
