Recommended Posts

This change log covers what's changed in Domotz Pro service since previous Release Notes. These changes include Domotz Pro cloud, Domotz Agent and Domotz Pro App.

 

Since previous Release Notes new versions of Domotz Agent and Domotz Pro App have been released. 

 

March 13rd, 2019

  

In order to fully exploit the new features, functionalities and bug fixes released, please make sure you have installed the latest version of

 

  • Domotz Pro Mobile App: check on Apple Store or Google Play. Latest version as of today is 1.12.0
  • Domotz Agent: check on Domotz Portal under the subscription tab. Latest Agent version as of today is 2.4.4
  • Violet Digital Support: check on Apple Store or Google Play. Latest version as of today is 2.6.7
  • Domotz Pro WebApp and Portal are already updated to the latest version

 

What's new:

  • Shared Alerts and webhook: with Shared Alerts, Domotz users can now define events for which the entire team would like to receive notifications either through emails or webhooks. Users can define alert profiles which can be applied either to devices or agents indifferently by any member of the team so that they are shared across the whole team. For example, this functionality can be used if the user is planning to feed alerts into a ticketing system or if he wants to send email alerts to an email address which is not configured as an account within Domotz Pro. This capability is available on Agents configured with the Premium Plan.
  • Define a shared alert profile: It is now possible to create an Alert Profile using the available device or agent events already available within Domotz Pro (Agent disconnection, Device Online/Offline, Device Heartbeat, etc). Within the profile, users can also define the recipients which should be notified for those events either in the form of email addresses or webhooks. The Alert Profiles created will be shared across the whole team and can be modified in the case something changes in the team or infrastructure.
  • Receive event notifications either through email or webhook: when the defined event occurs, users can be notified either through one or more email addresses (even if those email address are not connected to a Domotz Pro account) or by defining a URL where you want to receive an HTTP callback (webhooks). 
  • Associate the Alert Profile to specific devices or Agent: Once the shared alert profile has been defined, users can assign that profile to specific devices or Agents. If, for any reason, the user need to change destination email address or URL for the HTTP callback (webhooks), he can just change the alert profile configuration once, and that will be applied to all the devices and Agents associated with that shared alert profile. Every single member of the team will have access to the alert profiles, to make the Alert configuration easier and shared across the whole team.
  • Slack Integration: following this guide it is possible to create Slack Endpoint which can be used into the Alert Profile configuration as contact channel. Domotz users can now receive alerts directly on their Slack channels, with color coding which match the criticality of the alert.

 

Improvements:

  • Device Response Time: this feature is now available to 99% of the Domotz Agent packages available for all the architectures (including Synology and QNAP NAS, Raspberry with SNAP package, Windows Agent, etc). Premium plan is required.
  • PDU support: SnapAV Wattbox newer firmware/models support

 

    Fix:

    • Public API: Datetime in filter parameters don't accept timezone. Documentation fixed.

    • Public API: missing X-API-Key in access control. Due to the issue the usage of Public API was limited on some programming languages.

    • CyberSecurity feature: a wrong icon was shown when UPnP scan was paused.

    • PDU configuration: device filtering within PDU Config selection not working 

    • CyberSecurity feature: a false 'All alerts are disabled for this Agent' on security section 
    • Cisco SG250/350 PoE capability using a wrong MIB value generated the side-effect of not having PoE on Domotz
    • Ruckus Unleashed controller Not able to login
    • Ruckus Unleashed FAT AP containing more than one AP-s in its API response 

     

    Known limitations:

    • Eyes configured for deleted devices affect the total counting of Eyes
    • Devices with multiple network interfaces (multiple MAC address) can't be merged into single device
    • Field Operators can't set alerts on Domotz Eyes (SNMP Custom OID and TCP Services monitoring)

    • Static IP address on the Domotz Box cannot be configured before configuring the Agent

    • Multiple Devices logically connected to a Managed Switch Port: in case of WiFi AP connected to a switch port, the information is not available at the WiFi AP info
