Introducing Agenty AI

We are thrilled to announce that we are rolling out Early Access of our brand-new version of Agenty AI , equipped with improved performance, advanced automation capabilities using workflow, and some exciting changes in our API.

This major upgrade marks a significant milestone in our commitment to providing cutting-edge AI solutions in web automation and data scraping.

See all the upcoming changes here -

Accept cookie consent automatically

We’ve added a new feature in scraping, web crawling agent to accept cookie consent automatically when visiting a website first time.

For example, if there are any modal open with an active button like “Accept cookie”, “Allow cookie” or “Accept all cookies” etc. Agenty will automatically click on that button to accept and continue to access the webpage for better screenshots, native crawling and looks like as human.

This is turned on by default on all agents. If you want to change the default settings, you can turn it on/off from here -

Your agent > configuration > browser settings

Improved webhook and MongoDB integration

We’ve re-written our webhook and MongoDB integration to auto-transfer the web scraping data to your API or mongo collection automatically.

The data will be partitioned into smaller batches for large volumes. For example, if you have a web scraping agent with 100k output rows.

Agenty will send 100 webhook request to your API, when batch size is set to: 1000 to POST 1000 rows on each request.

Full page screenshots

We’ve improved the scraping agent to capture full page screenshot/HD screenshot for website debugging or general business requirement to capture websites screenshot.

To capture a URL screenshot, add a default field and select full_screenshot from system fields.

Capture website screenshot

Chrome extension v2.9.4

We’ve released the new version of Agenty’s Chrome extension for web scraping with improved user experience and upgrade to chrome manifest v3 for better performance and speed.

  • New draft mode feature to automatically keep the un-saved version of scraping agent to avoid erasing all the fields and selectors on webpage refresh accidentally.
  • Re-designed login flow to ask for login only on save, preview result etc. to improve the testability for customers trying the extension without an Agenty account.
  • Improved UI, buttons and modals.

Scrape data with jQuery

We’ve added the jQuery support in scraping agent to enhance your scraping capability with advanced jQuery or JavaScript code to inject on webpage and extract anything from HTML.
