The Stackify team has been busy putting together a huge release full of new features. The highlights from our September 2015 release include version 2.3 of APM+, a new version of the Apps page, and a brand new Custom Dashboard feature! Read below to see more about these features and more.
Custom Dashboard (Beta)
With this latest release, Stackify launches one of your more frequently requested features into public beta: Custom Dashboards. With this functionality, now you can craft a customized view of your application and environment health metrics and reports into any combination you choose. This is a great feature for those who want to see a single screen with a global perspective of health across all apps and environments, across all aspects of a single app or environment, for a given time range for reporting purposes, and no doubt many other use cases that will be unique to each of you.
At present, this feature is only available to users with Administrator permissions, with additional security features coming soon. If you have feature requests, enhancement suggestions, or bugs to report as you use this new feature, please let us know!
A New Apps Page (Beta)
The new Apps Page (Beta) allows you to see key information about your apps without having to dive into an individual app dashboard. We believe that this new dashboard will be helpful, and we would love to hear your feedback on any improvements that can be made.
A new Environments page in the Settings section of Stackify will allow you to control auto-updates of the Stackify agent running on your servers. In these settings you can also specify collection of errors via APM+. To see more about these settings, visit our Environments article
In the Monitoring and Diagnostics section of the Server Dashboard you can view processes running on a monitored server. We now offer the ability to kill these running processes via the UI of Stackify.
NOTE: By default this functionality will only be available to Account Admins. Like other tasks in Stackify, you can grant access to this feature to specific users or roles within your account. Follow our Users and Roles documentation to implement permissions control.
Notification Group Security
It is now easier to view which users in a notification group have restricted access to alerts in Stackify. To see how this works, take a look at our Notifications group article.
Programmatically Remove Servers
We have released a new API library to automate the removal of servers from Stackify's Server page via a REST call. Instructions on how to make the call to our API can be found here.
