We are also introducing a new YAML file format for dashboard templates. The new format is much human-readable. It is the first step to being able to persist all entities (parsers, queries, alerts) as files.
Support for the now deprecated dashboard file import API and JSON format will continue, but expect it to be removed in a later release.
COMPRESSION_TYPE=extremeuses the stronger compression also in the digest part, even though it is not as effective there due to the gain from having a larger file after the merge.
COMPRESSION_TYPE=highturns on a stronger compression when segments get merged. This results in better compression, at the expense of having slightly lower compression for the very recent events. The improvement is typically 2-3 times better compression for the merged segments.
parseJson()now accepts an exclude and include parameter. Use this to specify which fields should not be included.
Styling of the dashboard "Labels" dropdown has been fixed.
Drawer heights were not being persisted between browser sessions.
Added Note Widget support for dashboards.
sort()query function now ignores case when sorting strings.
Added GraphQL fields for shared dashboards.
Introducing a new YAML dashboard file format.
Renaming a repository is now possible in settings.
This update does not support rolling updates. Stop all Humio nodes. Then start them on the new version.
Note! Rolling back to v1.5.x is supported only for
COMPRESSION_TYPE=fastwhich is the default in this release. The default is expected to change to "high" later on. The new compression types "high" and "extreme" are considered BETA release.
Changing Dashboard labels will no longer trigger a "Dashboard was modified remotely" notification.
Changed GraphQL fields for dashboard widgets.
Added cluster information pages for the Zookeeper & Kafka Cluster used by Humio. Both are available under Administration.
Removed internal REST API for shared dashboards.
COMPRESSION_TYPE=fast(Default!) corresponds to versions before 1.6.x
Pending parameter edits toggle, so that parameter changes are not immediately applied if the user desires not to.
The sizes of the compressed files and the associated hash-filter files are tracked separately for the merged part, allowing you to see in the UI how well the long-term compression works as part of the total set.
copyEvent()function allows duplicating an event into another datasource while ingesting. Use
caseto make the two events differ.
