Hyperview 1.1

July 17 2020

This page covers significant new features, enhancements, and bug fixes in the Hyperview 1.1 release since version 1.0.

Search improvements

The Search functionality in Hyperview has been significantly improved. While there is no apparent change in the GUI, search results are displayed in real-time, are faster, and more relevant. For example, you can search for assets by name, property, custom property, and so on.

Rack PDU outlets

Administrators can now conveniently connect and disconnect assets to Rack PDU outlets from the Layout and Information > Power pages.

Reporting and Read-Only user roles

The Read-Only role is now fully implemented. Users belonging to this role only have read-only access to the entire application, with the only exception being the ability to update and maintain one’s own user profile. The Reporting role is currently identical to the Read-Only role, but it is intended to be me more specific to reporting use cases (across future releases).

Support for rack door access sensors

Starting with this version, Hyperview supports security-enabled racks that have door sensors attached to them. Note: this is a licensed feature which is not available in the product by default; please contact us if you are interested in it.

For instance, if the rack’s front or rear door is open, the rack security status will be marked as Critical so that you are alerted to the issue. Relevant features and improvements also include:

  • Event notifications for watched security-enabled racks
  • Rack security traps can be reviewed in the asset’s Events page
  • Columns for rack door sensors on the Assets by Type page
  • Rack Elevation widget highlights the rack security status
  • A new Rack Security widget, which can be added from the rack’s Dashboard

Other notable improvements

  • Map layout has been improved to support displaying a much larger set of locations. Note: Please re-edit and save address information to activate this feature.
  • This release includes several display improvements aimed at Firefox users.

API changes

  • Added the /api/v1/asset/assetsByType/racks endpoint, which returns a list of rack assets.
  • Added the /api/v1/asset/outlets endpoint, which returns a list of outlets for a given asset.
  • Renamed the /api/v1/asset/eventRecipientNotification/{assetId} endpoint to /api/v1/asset/eventNotificationRecipient/{assetId} to reflect improved object definitions.
  • Added the /api/v1/setting/license endpoint, which returns application license information.
  • Added the /api/v1/asset/rackSecurity/{assetId} endpoint, which returns rack security sensors for the Rack Security widget (note: licensed feature).
  • Added the /api/v1/asset/search endpoint, which returns a list of assets based on search criteria.
