Technical documentation available online
All technical documentation for Managed IoT Cloud, including API specifications, Release Notes and Getting Started Guides, are available online: https://docs.telenorconnexion.com/mic/
Thing list made available as a generic widget
In the App Board, a configurable list of the available things is displayed in the all things and thing type views. With the new release, this list view has been made available as a generic widget as well, giving the user the option to combine lists and other widgets such as aggregations and histograms in relevant dashboards.
The tab based navigation to the predefined thing list will remain for the time being, but the longer term intention is to remove the list tab from the user interface.
Color coding of Thing map markers
The Thing Markers in App Board Thing Dashboard and Thing Type Dashboard can now be color coded according to the value of a selected resource. This enables the Thing Type map to show e.g. all lamps that are turned on with yellow Thing markers and all lamps that are turned off with grey Thing markers.
The functionality is enabled in the widget setting by designing a list of criteria and its respective color for the resource selected (also the TCXN convention online status flag can be used).
Improvements and corrections for the new thing simulator
In the user interface for the new thing simulator (the UI that allows you to define your own payload and message frequency, please see the release notes for 2.42 for further details) a more intuitive behavior for the browser back button has been implemented in addition to a back button in the user interface. Moreover, a few minor changes to the user interface for the simulator are included in the new release.
To prevent that the simulator is mistakenly used to create additional resources in the data model for existing, “real-world” thing types, the create resource privilege can be used to lock/unlock the add resources button in the simulator user interface. Please note that this privilege can currently only be accessed using the permissions API. Also note that to a Thing Type only having simulated Things, the add resources button is available.
Clarification of that UTC time zone is used for data exports
In general, time stamps in App Board are rendered using the client’s local time zone. However, in the data export user interface, timestamps are rendered as UTC to make it easier to relate to the timestamps in the exported data. With the new release, the UTC-based timestamps are more clearly highlighted in the user interface and in relevant API documentation.
Early Access Environment
In this release we have enabled an Early Access Environment for MIC, intended to be used by customers and partners for testing and verification of coming features and updates. The environment will typically be updated 3-4 business days before the actual release becomes general available in production environments.
If you would like to have access to this environment, please contact Telenor Connexion SOC (email@example.com) with name and contact details (including email) of the person who will be in charge (owner and administrator) of your Early Access Environment and we will set up a domain for you and a admin user. The address of the environment is https://staging.mic.telenorconnexion.com/ and the Early Access Environment is offered at no additional cost to commercial MIC customers in production. Telenor Connexion will have the right to limit use, if the environment is used outside the intended scope, misused or used with excessive workloads.
Rule engine optimizations
An updated queueing mechanism underlying the rule engine has been implemented to safeguard scalability and performance.
Minor improvements and corrections
Minor enhancements and bug fixes are delivered by the new release, including:
- The counter displaying the number of things included in a data export sometimes displayed the wrong number due to a cache issue, which has now been fixed.
- The GraphQL documentation covering the newly added data export functions has been updated and improved.
- The rendering of labels for nested resources in Analyze has been corrected.
- Fixed issue with listing of rules that were created by subdomain users
