New design for dashboard navigation and control

The new release brings an updated design for the buttons and controls used to create, edit, and navigate dashboards (formerly known as View Modes, a term that is no longer used). The redesign have been applied for both the Thing type and the Thing view.

In both views, please note that the add widget button is only available when the dashboard is in edit mode.

In the Thing type view, the upper right corner now contains an updated set of buttons related to thing type; create data export, edit dialogue, delete, and create new things for the thing type.

This section is followed by a collapsible/expandable enhanced meta data section for the thing type, including the fixed fields describing the thing type as well as custom meta data for the thing type.

Following the filter, that is unchanged, follows a dashboard selector on the left hand side, and buttons related to the selected dashboard on the right hand side: The calendar icon sets the date span to be used in relevant widgets (such widgets also displays the selected date span inline), a dashboard editing button, a create new dashboard button, and in the three-dot folder, the dashboard settings dialogue and the delete dashboard option.

The Thing list tab has been removed, but a thing list can instead be added as a widget to thing type dashboards.

The Thing view has a similar layout: In the top-left corner next to the thing type breadcrumb, a dropdown displaying subordinate networked things is displayed, if networked things are available.

In the upper right-hand side corner, buttons related to the selected thing is available: Export data, edit dialogue, and the delete option.

Following the collapsible/expandable meta data section, a dashboard selector is desplayed on the left-hand side (complemented with a nested resources selector, if networked resources are in use). On the right-hand side, controls related to the dashboard is avilable: The calendar icon for the date span, edit dashboard and add dashboard. In the expanded three-dot folder, the dialogues for editing and deleting the dashboard are available.

Added App Board user interface for configuration of rules for individual things

The Rules API includes the capability to configure rules for one or several named things. This capability have now been added also to the App Board Rules configuration user interface. To use the functionality for a new rule, select the domain, thing type, and last but not least, the individual things for which the rule should apply.

The functionality is useful for any situation where a rule configuration relates to a specific thing rather than a group of things, one example being geofence rules tailored to the location where a thing is installed.

New and updated Getting Started Guides

A new getting started guide for the Cloud REST API has been added, and the material related to Node-Red has been consolidated and updated.
