If the input data used to populate a storage is modified (e.g. the format of a CSV file column containing a date is modified), the types of this storage columns could be modified. And this could break your dashboards.
That's why we've added a new option in storages configuration : lock-model. When this option is enabled, any operation that drops a column or modifies the type of a column is refused. We advise you to activate this option in your production environment.
In the rendering options of a barchart, it's now possible to activate the "show growth" option to display the evolution as a percentage between values. You can also decide to show both the value and its evolution (as a percentage).
You can now create radar widgets. You can use it to show a single item (for example, the analysis of a company along five dimensions). You can also use the split-by option to compare several items (for example, to compare several companies).
So far, when an FTP import had no file to import from the FTP server, it was seen as a successful operation.
You can now specify the behavior when no file is found, either raise an error (and thus receive an email or a Slack alert) or silently return a success.
This option is named 'Status if no file is found' in the FTP automation configuration.
In the automation menu, it's now possible to create alarms in a few clicks!
All you need to do is to select a datasource and one of its value-formula (i.e., a formula that returns a numeric value). Then, select the condition operator (above, below, equal...) and the threshold, and you're done. When the condition is true, you'll receive an email.
In the dashboard editor, there are four new formatting functions to edit strings before they are displayed (e.g. in a table widget):
- left(value, nb_chars_to_keep): to extract the left part of a string
- right(value, nb_chars_to_keep): to extract the right part of a string
- removeRight(value, nb_chars_to_remove): to remove characters at the right of a string
- removeLeft(value, nb_chars_to_remove): to remove characters at the left of a string
If you don't use formatting functions yet, have a look at our tutorial about tables' creation: https://www.serenytics.com/tutorials/tutorial_create_table/
Formatting functions are used in the section "Add a computed column".
