Bug fixes and updates.

Improvements, new features and functionality

  • UI Changes

    • The event lists column header menus have been redesigned to be simpler:

      • You can now click the border between columns header in the event to fit the column to the content.

      • The Event List column Format Panel has been updated to make it easier to manage columns.

      See Formatting Columns.

    • It is now possible to interact directly with the JSON properties and values in the EventList.

    • Humio is now a Falcon product. The Humio owl logo and icons are therefore replaced by beautiful falcons.

    • In the Event List you can assign data types to a column field. You can now make the setting the default for a fields and the setting is remembered when even the field is added to the Event List, e.g. from the fields panel on the Search page. The button for assigning default data type to a field can be found in the Data type dropdown menu in the column headers of the event list widget. See Field Data Types.

  • Dashboards and Widgets

    • Implemented support for widgets with a fixed time interval on dashboards.

  • Functions

    • BREAKING CHANGE: Changes to the serialization format of the Intermediate Language representation of queries.

      Description: The serialization format used to serialize the intermediate language representation of queries has changed to a JSON format. This has multiple consequences for on-prem customers. During upgrades to this version and rollbacks from this version you can expect the following:

      • Queries can be slower than usual initially as the query cache clears itself.

      • Queries may cause deserialization errors if they are run during upgrade and two or more nodes have different versions. It is recommended to block all queries upon upgrade and downgrade to and from this version and have all nodes upgrade at the same time.

  • Other

      • Added the possibility of creating a role that grants permissions on the system and organization levels from the UI.

      • Updated the flow of creating and editing roles in the Understanding Your Organization pages.

Bug Fixes

  • Falcon Data Replicator

    • Removed the deprecated feature flag FdrFeeds

  • GraphQL API

    • Marked all feature flags as preview in GraphQL, which means that once they are no longer needed, they will be removed without being deprecated first.

  • Dashboards and Widgets

    • Fixed a bug where certain queries would make it seem that all widgets were incompatible, even though the table view still works.

      Importing a dashboard with Shared time enabled and Live disabled would import the dashboard with Live enabled. Likewise, when creating a new dashboard from a template, Live would be on.

  • Other

    • It is no longer possible to have an upload file action with a path in the file name. This would result in an unusable file being created.

    • Fixed an issue where some segments could stall the background process implementing event redaction. This could then result in segments not being merged. The visible symptom would be segments with topOffset attribute being -1, and MiniSegmentMergeLatencyLoggerJob logging that some segments are not being merged.

    • Fixed an issue with tags in Event Forwarding, so that it is now possible to filter on tags using event forwarding rules, and the tags are present in the forwarded events.
