Release notes: March 28th - 2017

Dashboards

Define additional dashboard filters in generated URLs

From now on, dashboards' filters can be configured in generated URLs. The goal is actually provide the ability to technical teams to automatically generate URLs to monitor when alerts are raised.

The idea is to lead the user straight to a dashboard that is already pre-configured to give a full overview of a host, a datacenter, a specific user, etc...

How does that work?

Dashboard url stays the same, they can just be extended. So for instance, when you click on your dashboard from the user interface you get a URL that looks like this:

https://app.logmatic.io/logmatic#dashboard/<dashboard's id>

Now if you want to amend dashboard pre-defined filters by... let's say a hostname, you have to find the accurate field id in the Fields & Metrics configuration page and amend the previous URL as follow:

https://app.logmatic.io/logmatic#dashboard/<dashboard's id>/@cust_host="<host1>"

You can also of course provide multiple fields as well as multiple values as illustrated here:

https://app.logmatic.io/logmatic#dashboard/<dashboard's id>/@cust_host=["<host1>","<host2>"]&@cust_app="<app1>"

Here is a quick illustration:

Ergonomics & Usability

Extract up to 20,000 rows from the user interface

Any user can now extract up to 20,000 log entries directly from the user interface. The previous limit was 1,000.

Integrations

New GO/GOLANG integration

The go/golang integration can now be installed so you can leverage the source code integration.

New Ruby on Rails integration

The Ruby of Rails integration can now installed so you can leverage the source code integration.

User Access & Security

A new user role: the owner

In addition to the admin and the user roles we just added the notion of owner. The owner is an admin that owns the platform. He has access to everything related to the contract as well as being an admin of the platform.

The owner can also promote other users as admin or owner.
