Patch release 2.51.1

An issue that prevented users from saving dashboards with the domain-wide visibility setting (as opposed to personal dashboards) was identified and corrected with this patch release, deployed 2020-02-25. Under certain circumstances, the problem caused corrupt dashboard configurations, elevating the importance and criticality of the patch. We apologies for any inconvenience this problem may have caused, and kindly ask you to reach out to our support if you suspect that your configurations has been impacted.


New capabilities in the dynamic thing simulator

Added functionality to increment numerical resources with a random value within a given interval. This functionality can be used to mimic time series with typical characteristics, e.g.:

  • A simulated temperature based on the previous reading plus a random value within the range [-10..10]
  • A simulated fuel level calculated as the current level plus a random value within the range [-10…0]

In addition, support for simulating moving things using the convention resource latlng for the thing coordinate has been added. Movement can be simulated using one of several supported simulation strategies.

  • A static coordinate
  • Random coordinates within a defined square
  • Random coordinates within a defined circle
  • The change strategy corresponds to a “random walk” were a starting coordinate’s latitude and longitude components are incremented by random values within defined ranges
  • Movement following a straight line between two coordinates, with a velocity defined in meters per second

Advanced Permissions (BETA)

Work is ongoing to complete a first official version of our new Advanced Permissions functionality. Work is progressing as per plans, targeting a first release within the next few sprints.

Minor improvements and corrections

Minor enhancements and bug fixes are delivered by the new release, including:

  • Fixed issue that the delete icon did not disappear when deselecting the checkbox corresponding to a saved analysis in analyser
  • Added confirmation dialogue prior to deleting a saved analysis
  • Enhanced behavior when deleting free text search criteria in thing filters
  • Corrected rendering of resource labels for deeply nested resources in the resource selector
  • Improved validation for Thing API invoke calls related to files
  • Removed meta data related to the signup process from the USER LIST endpoint response in cases when not relevant
