MOOG-12539

The Database Splitter utility has been improved in this release:

  • It uses fewer server resources and is designed to minimize the possibility of locks.

  • It is now implemented as a single stored procedure but is controlled, as before, by the Housekeeper moolet and configured, as before, by the moog_db_split_enabler utility.

MOOG-12567

Insights and Labs are now separate in the Settings screen of the UI.

MOOG-12628

An administrator can now delete a team, using the following methods:

  • Graze API endpoint and MoogDb method deleteTeam.

  • In the UI, go to Settings > Teams, select the team and click - to delete.

When you delete a team it is removed from any alerts, Situations, services and notifications that it was assigned to or associated with.

If a deleted team is recreated by SAML/LDAP, it is assigned a status of inactive.

MOOG-12667

You can now use Graze API endpoints to add, delete, update and retrieve Cookbooks and Recipes:

The new Configuration Migration utility upgrades your existing configuration files for merge groups and the Cookbook and Tempus moolets to make them compatible with 7.3. The utility is embedded in Moogfarmd and runs automatically the first time a 7.3 instance of Moogfarmd is started. You can configure its behavior using the file_only_config property in moog_farmd.conf.

MOOG-13016

The Situation List view now persists its filter, sort order, and last position. This means you can retain these settings when you exit and return to the list.

MOOG-13017

You can now personalize your date/time settings to show the actual date and time instead of a friendly version such as "1 hour ago."

MOOG-13034

The My Account dialog box now has a checkbox that enables you to customize the time format displayed in the UI.

MOOG-13050

Speedbird has been deprecated and removed.

MOOG-13056

Improves Cookbook and Situation generation logging.

MOOG-13065

Removes the Competencies property, which was designed to indicate a user’s areas of expertise. It was not used by customers. This affects the following:

  • Removes the Competencies tab from user settings in the UI.

  • No longer displays Competencies in the user popover widget.

  • Affected entities no longer use competencies.

  • The createUser and updateUser Graze API endpoints and MoogDb methods no longer use competencies.

MOOG-13075

When an alert leaves maintenance, Moogsoft AIOps now preserves the maintenance window name and maintenance status fields in custom info. The status is set to 'Previously in maintenance' unless configured otherwise. To configure the status text, use the 'maintenance_exit_label' key in maintenance_window_manager.conf.

MOOG-13103

You can now use Graze API endpoints to share access to any tool and retrieve the shares for a tool:

  • shareToolAccess

  • getToolShares

See the Graze API reference for full details.

MOOG-13180

SituationMgr is now a standalone Moolet by default and processes all Situation updates sent on the Message Bus on the sigs topic. The mooms_event_handler and process_output_of configuration properties have been replaced by the standalone_moolet property in $MOOGSOFT_HOME/config/moolets/situation_manager.conf. Existing configurations using the old properties will still work but a warning message will appear on Moogfarmd startup.

  • updateMergeGroup

  • deleteMergeGroup

  • getMergeGroups

See the Graze API reference for full details.

MOOG-13295

RPM installation now installs Percona XtraDB Cluster by default using 3 nodes. MySQL is still supported for upgrades.

MOOG-13353

You can now enable and configure the Tempus clustering algorithm in the UI under Settings > Algorithms > Tempus.

MOOG-13356

You can now export your system configuration and import the configuration from another system, by going to Settings > Import/Export.

MOOG-13446

You can now configure merge groups by going to Settings > Merge Groups.

MOOG-13532

The new Moogfarmd configuration property file_only_config determines whether the Moogfarmd uses file-based configuration. If set to false, configuration is migrated to the database and database configuration is used. Defaults to false.
