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

  • Dashboards and Widgets

    • When using the Edit in search view item on a dashboard widget, the values set in parameters in the query are also carried over into the search view.

    • When Setting Up a Dashboard Interaction, the {{ startTime }} and {{ endTime }} special variables now work differently, depending on whether the query, widget or dashboard is running in Live mode or not. They now work as follows:

      • In a live query or dashboard, the startTime variable will contain the relative time, such as 2d whereas endTime will be empty.

      • In a non-live query or dashboard, startTime will be the absolute start time when the query was last run. endTime, similarly, will have the end time of when the query was last run.

  • Functions

    • base64Decode() query function has been updated such that, when decoding to UTF-8, invalid code points are replaced with a placeholder character.

    • The memory usage of the functions selectLast() and groupBy() has been improved.

  • Packages

    • The size limit of packages' lookup files has been changed to adhere to the MAX_FILEUPLOAD_SIZE configuration parameter. Previously the size limit was 1MB.

      For more information, see Exporting the Package.

Bug Fixes

  • UI Changes

    • An issue in the Usage page that could fail showing any data has been fixed.

      The Usage page now shows an error if there are any warnings from the query.

  • Dashboards and Widgets

    • Attempting to remove a widget on a dashboard would sometimes remove another widget than the one attempted to remove. This issue has been fixed.

    • Non-breaking space chars (ALT+Space) made Template Expressions unable to be resolved. This issue has been fixed.

  • Functions

    • The groupBy() function would not always warn upon exceeding the default limit. This issue has now been fixed.

    • timeChart() provided with unitand groupBy() as the aggregation function would not warn on exceeding the default groupBy() limit. This issue has now been fixed.

  • Other

    • In clusters with bucket storage running queries that take more than 90 minutes, those queries could spuriously fail with a complaint that segments were missing. The issue has now been fixed.
