Bug fixes and updates.

Advanced Warning

The following items are due to change in a future release.

  • Installation and Deployment

    • Support for running on Java 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 and 16 will be removed by the end of September 2023.

Improvements, new features and functionality

  • Automation and Alerts

    • When creating a new Alert, you now have a pulldown menu that suggests labels that you've previously created for other alerts. The same applies to Scheduled Searches.

      For more information, see Creating Alerts.

  • Configuration

    • New configuration parameters have been added allowing control of client.rack for our Kafka consumers:

      • KAFKA_CLIENT_RACK_ENV_VAR — this variable is read to find the name of the variable that holds the value. It defaults to ZONE, which is the same variable applied to the LogScale node zones by default.

Bug Fixes

  • Dashboards and Widgets

    • '_' was not recognized as a valid first symbol for parameters when parsing queries. This issue has now been fixed.

    • "" was being discarded when creating URLs for interactions. This issue has now been fixed.
