For example, if you add a header as “Count,” you can customize the color, alignment, and size of the title to suit your preferences.

Note: This feature is applicable for Metric, Alert, Resource, and Ticket tiles, providing greater flexibility and customization options for your dashboard.

See Introduction to Tiles for more details.

Added Multiple Metric Value Utilization

With the current release, users can now incorporate multiple Metric Values, labels, and consistent headings within the Single Value visualizations featured in the Metric Tile.

Previously, the system allowed for only a single query for Single Value representation.

Note: After three queries, users will no longer be able to create additional ones.

See Metric Tile for more details.

Sort Property for Any Tile Type

In Tile preview mode, we have implemented a new functionality where any changes made to the sorting of a column by clicking on the table will now be persisted. This means that the sort order selected during preview mode will replace the sort option previously available in the visualization tab.

Note: This feature is available for Metric, Alert, Resource, Ticket tile.

SaaS Monitoring Enhancements

Cradlepoint Integration Enhancement

The Cradlepoint integration can now only be installed once per client. The system no longer allows the installation of duplicate integrations.

Monitoring Management Enhancements

Push Changes in the Monitor to Associated Templates

Users now have the option to save the recent changes to associated templates. Upon updating metrics or configuration parameters, an option to save the recent changes to the associated templates is provided.

A popup will prompt users to select and push the changes to the templates, which will subsequently be re-assigned to all affected resources. Alternatively, users can choose to save the monitor changes without selecting templates in the popup, preserving changes solely within the monitor.

Previously, users were required to manually navigate to each associated template, edit, and re-add the monitor to reflect changes.

See Edit a Monitor for more details.

Switch Gateway in the Discovery Settings

Users now have the option to change the gateway and map the discovery and monitoring configuration to a different gateway.

This enhancement will help users to effectively manage or distribute the load from an overloaded gateway to a new gateway or a less overloaded gateway, thereby improving monitoring capabilities.

Previously, when changing the gateway management profile in integrations/apps from gateway#1 to gateway#2, the discovery was mapped to gateway#2 while monitoring remained mapped to gateway#1.

With this update, changing the gateway profile ensures that both discovery and monitoring are switched to the newly mapped gateway, removing them from the previous gateway. This streamlined approach simplifies gateway management and enhances monitoring efficiency.

Validate Button for Expression Error

The Validate button now allows users to check for errors in your expression directly within the creation process.

With this enhancement, you can now verify the accuracy of your expression in real-time while creating a monitor. If any errors are detected, users will have the opportunity to correct the expression on the spot, ensuring that their monitoring setup is accurate and error-free.

Detaching Gateway Alert Enhancement

When you detach the gateway, OpsRamp will generate a critical gateway deregister alert within the client scope. This alert is not mapped to the gateway resource, and you will need to locate these alerts in the alert browser.

Note: Prior to this change, the deregister alert was mapped to the gateway resource.

Metrics Engine Enhancements

Audit for Alert Definition CRUD Operations

Audit data related to the creation, updating, and deletion of Alert definitions is now accessible to users.
