NetApp is continually improving and enhancing its products and services. Here are some of the latest features and functionalities available with Cloud Insights.
"Owner" field is more readable
In Dashboard and Query lists, the data for the "Owner" field was previously an authorization ID string, instead of a user-friendly owner name. The "Owner" field now shows a simpler and more readable owner name.
Managed Unit Breakdown on Subscription Page
For each data collector listed on the Admin > Subscription page, you can now see a breakdown of Managed Unit (MU) counts for hosts and storage, as well as the total.
Improvement of UI Load Time
The initial loading time for the Cloud Insights user interface (UI) has been significantly improved. Refresh time for the UI also benefits from this improvement in circumstances where metadata is loaded.
Bulk Edit Data Collectors
You can edit information for multiple data collectors at the same time. On the Admin > Data Collectors page, select the data collectors to modify by checking the box to the left of each and click the Bulk Actions button. Choose Edit and modify the necessary fields.
The data collectors selected must be the same vendor and model, and reside on the same Acquisition Unit.
Support and Subscription pages are Available During Onboarding
During the onboarding workflow, you can navigate to the Help > Support and Admin > Subscription pages. Returning from those pages returns you to the onboarding workflow, providing you have not closed the browser tab.
Subscribe through NetApp Sales or AWS Marketplace
Cloud Insights subscription and billing is now available directly through NetApp. This is in addition to the self-serve subscription available through AWS Marketplace. A new Contact Sales link is presented on the Admin > Subscription page. For customers whose environments have or are expected to have 1,000 or more Managed Units (MUs), it is recommended to contact NetApp sales via the Contact Sales link.
Text Annotation Hyperlinks
Text-type annotations can now include hyperlinks.
Cloud Insights now features an onboarding walkthrough for the first user (administrator or account owner) to log in to a new environment. The walkthrough takes you through installing an Acquisition Unit, configuring an initial data collector, and selecting one or more useful dashboards.
Import Dashboards from the Gallery
In addition to selecting dashboards during onboarding, you can import dashboards via Dashboards > Show All Dashboards and clicking +From Gallery.
The ability to duplicate a dashboard has been added to the dashboard list page as a choice in the options menu for each dashboard, and on a dashboard’s main page itself from the Save menu.
Cloud Central products menu
The menu allowing you to switch to other NetApp Cloud Central products has moved to the upper right corner of the screen.
