Release Note — v8.1.1

While we continue to build new features, squash bugs, and plan new releases in order to improve your DNIF experience, here’s a summary of what has changed since our last release…

What’s New

Case Management

You can now create and assign cases based on modules triggered within you INBOX view. Simply select the modules triggered and add them to a “case”. Bonus Point: When you explore a case you are greeted with a beautiful UI that lets you drill down further based on “Pivot Field”.

Managing your DNIF deployment made easy

We understand how difficult it is to monitor and manage multiple instances of your IT infra. To make things simple when it comes to monitoring and managing your DNIF deployment, we would like to introduce you to DCC. It is the swiss army knife of your DNIF deployment. You can now perform:

  • Diagnostics.
  • Service management.
  • Setup / reconfiguration.
  • Backup / Index management. And much more…all this from your command line. Here is a brief introduction:


Check your DNIF version directly in console

You can see the existing DNIF version for your SCOPE in the bottom left hand corner on the DNIF web console.

Don’t Wait for Usage Alert Emails

You can now configure a ticker alert to see utilisation alerts directly in the console.

Ingestion queue management is here at last!

Never run the risk of stalling your data ingestion process or overwhelming your Adapter entirely. You can now set up alerts to proactively manage log ingestion load at Adapter, by default the values are set as follows:

  • High: 100,000 log events
  • Medium: 50,000 log events
  • Low: 10,000 log events

Note: These values are customisable from the backend and you will receive email alerts based on the thresholds set.


Too many packages to scroll? Why not filter them.

Within the REPOSITORY view, users can now filter packages listed within DNIF cloud based on Date and Name. Users can also select the toggle button to list only those packages that are created by DNIF team.

Enhancements

  • You can now perform a case-insensitive text search within a field using regex. You can find a tutorial here.
  • We built Adapter queue management so you would no longer the service named Syncdump and hence, we have deprecated it.
  • You can now get all the module related information in the data stack when using the _raise module... pipelined query.
