New user interface framework Copied

The new UI framework is based on React and amCharts, and it brings a fresh look to and more consistency with the new Observability Platform, .

Standard lists are now used throughout, with a choice of the number of rows to display, pagination, and sorting options as well as easier access to Baseline Views, Scenarios and Reports.

We have also removed libraries reaching the end of support as part of our continuous improvement on security.

Reporting enhancements Copied

New report framework Copied

This release comes with a new report framework with improved presentation of saved reports and report templates.

The report page now distinguishes more clearly between Reports which can be run immediately to produce output, and Report Templates which require parameters to be set before they can be run. Brief descriptions of each report are now available along with a link to the documentation pages for more information.

Reports that you have created from a template and saved now appear in the Reports section. This section also includes any reports created by other users that have been shared and standard reports.

For more information about reports, see Using advanced reports.

Standard pre-pack reports Copied

solutions now include a set of standard, pre-packed reports. These are indicated by the Standard Report set as the owner, and provide a quick way for new clients to get started using reports, and to access key information more easily.

User-created standard reports Copied

Users who are granted appropriate permissions can create new standard reports that become available to all users within their own solutions.

For the creation of standard shared reports, there are now shared views available that are not owned by individual users.

Filters are now visible in Baseline Views Copied

When choosing baseline views in reports, groupings are now displayed in the view that filters the data, which helps you select the appropriate baseline view.

Standardisation of parameter handling Copied

The way parameters are presented in reports is now standardised. In generic reports that can be applied to different entity types, you now choose a metric first, and if that metric is available for multiple entity types, then you can choose from those.

Grouping and filtering improvements and simplification Copied

Standard grouping filters are now used in reports. You can first choose a grouping, then indicate whether a filter should apply on that grouping, and if so, what values should be included.

It is now possible to choose and filter directly on groupings that are associated with parent entities. For example, when reporting on Storage drive utilisation, it is possible to filter on groupings associated with the server on which the drive is located.

Performance improvements Copied

Reports performance has been improved, and solution level caching is now used.

Cloud Cost Optimisation performance enhancements Copied

Cloud Right-sizing is now performed quicker. Reference data is now being updated weekly.

Issues fixed Copied

All reports now correctly show dynamic groupings in parameter lists.
