Release Date: October 18, 2023

Affected Sections: Map, Issues, Traces, API Catalog, Logs, K8s Events, Resource Details

We are excited to announce this update which refines and improves our search and filter functionalities. You can now find what you need even faster than before!

What's in this release?

  • Combine multiple search terms for Logs: You can now perform more advanced searches in the Logs section by using multiple free text search terms. The search functionality will remain the same but you will now be able to combine multiple search terms in your searches. For example, to find logs that contain the search terms 'email' and 'order confirmation', you can now add the keyword email to the search bar, and then add "order confirmation" which will show you the logs that contain ALL specified terms (similar to using an ‘AND’ operator).

  • “Include all filters” by default: All filters will be selected by default when you navigate to any section of the platform that has filters.

  • Easy toggling between Single / All filters view: In a single click, you can now apply only one selected filter, enabling you to instantly single out the one component that matters to you. You can just as easily add/remove filters one by one, or turn all filters back on.

  • Advanced Search Bar Capabilities: We have added the not-equals (exclude) condition directly in the search bar. You can now easily exclude specific conditions by using the "-" prefix. For instance, to exclude debug level logs, simply type ‘-level:debug’.

  • Redesigned Filter Interface: As part of our commitment to offering an intuitive and aesthetic user experience, we are introducing a refreshed design for our filters. This modern and mature design not only elevates the look of our platform but also enhances usability.

  • Platform-wide Implementation: We believe in consistency, which is why our new filter improvements have been rolled out across all pages of the platform that utilize filters. Whether you're checking issues, browsing logs, analyzing traces, or troubleshooting APIs, you'll benefit from our improved filter experience.

These new capabilities are available are available with v1.5.27 or later. Learn how to update groundcover's agent to the most recent version.
