Shotgun 7.9 comes new features for tracking and scheduling, calculated fields, Production Insights, and the Rest API.


New Features

Tracking and scheduling

You can now provide meaningful descriptions of how your fields are used in the context of your pipeline, by adding a custom tooltip. You can use this to provide descriptions for your custom entities.

Calculated fields

Calculated fields now offers formula validation, which highlights errors to help you create and edit your formulas.

Production Insights

Graphs can now be sorted by Status Order or Pipeline Step Order, making it easier to see your statuses or steps in context.

Rest API

Shotgun’s new Rest API is now available to anyone who wants to use it. With the REST API you can access Shotgun from any programming language, allowing integration from almost any type of environment. Read our documentation at
