Aternity User Access Management

We are pleased to announce the launch of the new Aternity staff Access Management process.

At Aternity, we are continuously working to secure our customers environment and data. This new process increases your visibility into Aternity staff members who can access your system.

With the launch of the process, Aternity staff (including Sales, Support and others) who need access to your account will require your approval.

Aternity will perform a gradual rollout of that functionality during December and account administrators will be notified about it.

Drill Down Analysis

Advanced dashboards, including both library dashboards and custom dashboards have now a large set of relevant drill down options automatically added to them.

Drilling down from a custom dashboard to out-of-the-box dashboards weaves the custom dashboards into the Aternity workflow, allowing them to become an entry point to a much deeper data analysis in other dashboards.

A set of drill down links to relevant dashboards will be added to each one of the following objects that will appear in the tooltip: activity, application, user, or device.

REST API Enhancements

We've redesigned the internal mechanism of the REST API to provide support for queries that contain much larger data sets.
  • Most of our REST APIs now support returning an unlimited number of rows per request.

  • You can use REST API with many BI and other tools, that do not work well with streaming mechanism, such as Tableau.

  • It is still advised to limit the number of rows by using filters or selecting only the relevant columns since smaller result sets will be returned much faster.

  • force_Query_Result function is deprecated.

Additional Enhancements

  • New user attributes added to the Device Inventory Data Source and REST API (user full name, title, email address, office, and domain).

  • New device attribute added to the Device Details dashboard and REST API (physical CPU cores).
