April 2021 - What's New
This release includes the following new features, enhancements, and know issues:
Support for Multi-Value Join in AIOps_Insights Data Source
When you join the
AIOps_Inventory
and
AIOps_Metrics
data sources, you can now view a maximum of 10 metrics for each of the inventory entities in a single table using the
Metric Aggregations
option. For example, you can view metrics such as risk, health, and other metrics for all the services of your tenant in a single table.
To view the metrics, enable the
Metric Aggregations
in the
AIOps_Metrics
data source and provide your own query or the sample query that is displayed. But ensure that the query meets the following conditions:
  • The raw query must include a GROUP op. Only one GROUP op is allowed.
  • The raw query must include an AGG op.
  • Only 10 FROM op can be defined.
Metric Aggregations does not support the
AIOps_Metrics
format.
In the earlier version, only one metric was displayed for an inventory entity. For more information, see the section.
Auto Closure of Alarms
The auto-alarm closure is enabled by default. If any open alarm has no updates for more than 30 days, then that alarm is closed automatically.
  • For the auto-closed alarms, email and webhook notifications will not be triggered even if the defined policy filter criteria is met.
  • If there are any open tickets for auto-closed alarms, those tickets will be closed.
For more information, see the section.
