- Breaking changes
Build 250 is released on 30 May 2023.
Action Framework (technology preview)
The action framework technology preview is optimized in preparation for Open Beta. This optimization can cause changes to the underlying persistence layer. As a result, all existing actions and their associations might disappear from Instana. However, the data is not lost. Data migration might not be necessary now because this feature is in technology preview. However, if you want to migrate your actions and their associations, contact IBM Instana support.
With Application Smart Alerts, you can get alerts on the number of erroneous calls now (in addition to error rate).
Custom payloads in Synthetic Smart Alerts
You can configure Synthetic Smart Alerts with custom payloads. For more information, see Synthetic custom payload.
Dynamic parameters for automation actions
Dynamic parameters are added for automation actions derived from the monitored infrastructure related to the issue based on a tag. Dynamic parameters are automatically detected, and they continuously update the relations of the monitored system by using Instana's unique Dynamic Graph.
IBM ACE Tracing
The IBM ACE Tracing user exit image is now available in the Instana public artifactory for you to download. For more information, see Downloading IBM ACE Tracing user exit.
IBM DataPower sensor
Instana supports monitoring XML names of DataPower. The table
XML Names is added to the Instana UI.
IBM MQ Tracing
The IBM MQ Tracing user exit image is now available in the Instana public artifactory for you to download. For more information, see Downloading IBM MQ Tracing user exit.
Instana now provides support for instrumenting the GORM library in the Go ecosystem. For more information, see Databases.
Mobile App monitoring
Flutter agent 2.6.0 is released with the following two features:
Capturing HTTP calls that are issued inside iOS platforms (in Swift or Objective C) and Android platforms (in Kotlin or Java). For more information about enabling native HTTP capture, see How to enable native HTTP capture.
Capturing HTTP calls that are issued within Dart. For more information about enabling HTTP auto capture within Dart, see How to enable HTTP auto capture within Dart.
Instana supports monitoring of Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC) as Open Beta. For more information about Oracle RAC, see Oracle RAC.
SpringBoot v3 metrics collection
Spring Boot sensor can collect metrics from Sprin Boot v3 applications now. For more information, see Monitoring Spring Boot.
Mobile App monitoring: Crash collection
Instana now supports Mobile App crash collection as technology preview. For more information, see Crash Collection.
Now, when you use multiple metric conditions in a custom event, you can combine these metric conditions with the OR logical operator, in addition to the AND logical operator. For more information, see Custom events.
IBM i sensor
Instana supports monitoring metrics and configuration data for IBM i platform 7.5.
In the Logs home page, the query time of filtering and grouping logs is faster now. To go to the Logs home page, click Analytics > Logs in the Instana UI.
The "Download call details" link is added to the header of call details.
Application Metrics API
Previously, some snapshot IDs that were returned by the API endpoint
/api/application-monitoring/metrics/services did not match the filter specified in the request. The issue is fixed now.
IBM ACE sensor
Previously, the flow nodes metrics were lost in flow nodes table for container-based IBM App Connect Enterprise (ACE) environments. The issue is fixed now.
Previously, the queue manager connection status wasn't updated accordingly after queue manager was disconnected or reconnected. The issue is fixed now.
IBM ACE Tracing
The HTTP request header
X-INSTANA-T and the IBM MQ message header
X_INSTANA_T, which contain the Instana trace ID, are changed to 16 characters in length.
IBM i sensor
The issue that inactive subsystems were reported as active in the IBM i remote monitoring is fixed.
Synthetic monitoring: API details
Previously, when you queried Synthetic test results by using the
api/synthetic/results Open API and used the metrics with aggregated values in the "order by" part of the API call, the call failed, and no results were
returned. This issue is fixed now.
Previously, website and mobile beacons weren't displayed in the Details panel of the Trace view on the Analytics dashboard. This issue is fixed now.
Previously, the sidebar search filters were not appearing in the API query menu in the Query Builder on the Analytics dashboard. This issue is fixed now.
