Product Enhancement: Updated BrightGauge Agent
The BrightGauge agent has been updated to improve performance, enhance security, and support BrightGauge scalability. To enhance your experience, we are replacing the old agent with a new architecture that incorporates a heartbeat service for agent check-ins. The new agents also have an updated UI that allows for faster installs and facilitates setting up multiple agents.
For more information on the new agent, please refer to the following articles:
Product Enhancement: Analyst Report Templates
Admins can now share report templates with Analyst users! Report are shared in a similar manner as dashboards and datasets from the Your Account > Users page. Sharing report templates with Analysts allows for granular user permissions by enabling Analyst users to utilize report templates created by other users. This saves time for both Admins and Analysts and allows for quicker report setup. Analysts were able to create reports but were unable to share them with each other. Admins can now share report templates built by other Analysts. For more information, please refer to the Sharing Report Templates with Analysts FAQ.
Product Enhancement: Manual Date Entry for Date Filters in the Gauge Builder
When you add a date filter to a gauge in the Gauge Builder, you may now manually type in the date using mm/dd/yyyy format. You may also select the date using the calendar and the month and year selectors. For more information, please refer to Gauge Filters Explained.
