  • Proxies Browser Revamp:

    Streamlined experience that improves monitoring and managing your proxies.

  • Amazon Web Services Integration Improvements:

    With this release, we have improved the AWS CloudWatch integration. When you configure the AWS CloudWatch integration, you can add custom namespaces to monitor more services, even those that are not in the default Products list of the AWS services in our GUI. For more information, see the integrations release notes.

  • Ingestion Policies Improvement:

    When you assign a key-value pair to an ingestion policy with the point tags scope, you can now set a wildcard for the tag value. For example, you can assign env="*".

  • Monitor the Status of Your Service:

    You can use the public VMware Cloud Services Status Page to monitor your service for incidents and maintenance.
    1. For confidentiality reasons, we show the service status of each customer cluster by using a cluster alias name. Find Your Cluster Alias Name.
    2. Outages and other service-wide events are reported on the VMware Cloud Services status page. View the Status of Your Service.
    3. You can subscribe to notifications for incidents and scheduled maintenance of your service. Subscribe for Status Updates.
