The v76 release will be rolled out the first two weeks of June. There are a lot of useful features in this one, most notably the Text Widget and Audit Log report.
You will notice the toggle for the old Settings page has been removed. The toggle for Dashboards is set to be removed in v.77, please use the feedback button to tell us about any reasons you still use the old view.
The first thing you will notice when you go to try out the new text widget is that the Add Widget process has changed from a long text list to a more helpful summary display:Aside from this just being more colorful, you’ll notice:
Last, but not least, the Text Widget. With the Text widget you can insert any HTML or image into your dashboard. Great for giving your front line staff a to do list, keeping team members updated on other happenings, or including images of your datacenter cage – or customer’s logos.
A number of you run our dashboards on a big screen somewhere in your NOC, support center, or other area of your operations. We love this! But the browsers love it less, and kick you out after ~24 hours. Since we can’t convince the browsers to change, we’re introducing ‘Faux’ Full Screen mode. This will:
We have hidden the old full screen mode, as this solution seems to better solve most needs. If you miss it, let us know via the feedback button.
Although we only store Audit Log information for 60 days, we’ve made it easier to store specific information as long as you wish with the Audit Log report. Simply go to Reports | Add a report, select Audit Log and schedule the report to be sent as frequently as you wish. The search filter in the report behaves exactly as the Search box in the Audit Logs page:
For those of you paying close attention, we did rename the Settings | Access Logs to Audit Logs. It’s a more representative title for the information that is available. You can also create an Audit Log report, or download search results, directly from the Audit Logs page:
A new roles setting is available that will require users to accept the end user license agreement.
The setting is configured per role, but stored per user. Once a user has accepted the terms they will not be shown the EULA again – unless the LogicMonitor terms change.
The old Netscan policies were limited in their configuration, and as a result never discovered duplicate IPs even if they were monitored by different collectors. The new Netscan policies can support duplicate IPs (as long as they are on different collectors), but that’s not always what’s needed. As a result, a new configuration is available for Netscan:
In the case you’ve moved devices off of the collector associated with the policy, or you never have duplicate IPs, you can tell us when to consider an IP as invalid. Your options include:
Existing policies will default to matching any monitored devices, as this was the previous behavior.
