On March 21st we released DataPower Operations Dashboard (DPOD) v1.0.7. This is the latest version of IBM’s monitoring and problem determination solution for applications that are secured and optimized by DataPower Gateways. The latest version 1.0.7 brings improvements around several major areas such as new support for DataPower physical appliance, UX/UI, and integration with API Connect, IBM’s comprehensive API management solution for the entire API lifecycle. Let’s look at these new features with more detail.
Support for the new X2 Gateway physical appliance
Support for Tenant Isolation
We have made several enhancements to the UI. First, if you are an admin logging in to the console, you will be presented with a message indicating when the latest transaction was stored. This feature gives you a quick sanity check that the DPOD platform runs smoothly and that all recent DataPower or API Connect transactions are being processed and stored.
Integration with IBM API Connect
The very popular early failing request dashboard, which gives you a list of all requests that failed before invocation of a processing rule in the service is now available in the API Connect panel. But perhaps one of the best examples of the commitment of our team to further integrate with IBM API Connect is the new API Connect Recent Activity dashboard that displays a high-level overview of APIs activity. Now you can see the APIs with greater latency, the number of successful APIs, and APIs in error plus summarized views of plan activity and API activity.
