Release notes: February 23rd - 2017

Hi everyone, this is our end-of-february release.

The team is still working hard to deliver on a major addition to our alerting features. Our target is mid-march and it'll come along with a new "owner" user role with special rights, SEPA payments (in addition to credit cards), enabling significant CSV data extractions directly from the UI and 3-4 brand new integrations.

With this release, we're delivering something we've had in mind for a long time: the possibility to configure your environment directly from the exploration view. The idea is to avoid the hassle of going back and forth from data analysis to configuration menus and lose focus.

Let's see what it looks like.

Ergonomics and usability

Create new Fields & Metrics from the explore view

Admin users are now able to create Fields & Metrics directly from the exploration view by clicking on any attribute.

Creation forms - available traditionally in the configuration menu - pop in so they can conveniently define everything.

Get notified while creating duplicate Fields & Metrics

We noticed that when multiple admins were working on the same environment, they would sometimes create the same configuration entries without noticing it. This could lead to lots of filters and metrics with different names but serving the same purpose, with no one able to judge if some should be deleted or not...

Admins are now notified when they create a duplicate. They can then take a well informed decision if they want to proceed or not.

NGINX integration now able to consume raw logs

On the previous version, the NGINX integration was suggesting to change the format provided by servers to proper JSON. You now have the option to provide raw log as well, the integration takes care of setting up the right parsers to extract high value tokens from the flowing data.
