August 8, 2017

On August 8, Cloud Cruiser released version 1.50.13, which includes the following enhancements and bug fixes:

  • In Insights, you can now drill down for more detail on an item in the result set. This enables you to get the extra information that helps you decide whether to take action on that item.
    To configure drilldown for an insight, edit the insight and select an existing report under Results Drilldown. Users then can expand any row in the result set for the insight to see the report filtered to that item. For example, the following screenshot shows the results of the Underutilized VM insight, using the VM Details report to drill down for more context about one VM.

  • Cloud Cruiser now prevents you from deleting a report if it is referenced by another item, such as a Report widget displaying it in a view or an insight using it for drilldown. This prevents these items from being accidentally broken when content that they rely on is deleted.
  • The help button ('?') now presents a menu rather than a dialog focused on a particular video, giving you easier access to all the help content available for your current location. And you can now minimize help videos while watching them to enable you to see and interact with more of the application.
