Wording Changes

This release introduces a wording change in the documentation. The term visual is now used to refer to chart, table, and map visuals that can be added to a dashboard. The term chart is reserved for use for specific visual styles, such as a pie chart or a bar chart. Tables and maps are considered visuals, but are not considered charts.

API Changes

  • The /api/system/redirect API endpoint has been deprecated in this release. In addition, related API endpoints have been removed and replaced, as shown in the following API requests.

    Old API Request Use This API Request Instead
    GET api/system/logger/{logger:.+} GET actuator/loggers/{name}
    PUT api/system/logger/{logger:.+} POST actuator/loggers/{name}
    GET api/system/property GET actuator/env
    GET api/system/property/{name} GET actuator/env/{name}
    PUT api/system/property/{name} POST actuator/env/{name}

    POST api/system/variables/{prefix}/{key} PUT api/toggles/{prefix}/{key}

    The /api/system/systeminfo API endpoint has also been deprecated in this release.

  • A new endpoint, /api/users/autocomplete/query=<string>, has been added in this release. Use this endpoint to search for users in a Zoomdata account. At least three characters must be specified for <string>. These characters can be any part of the user name, full name, or email. The endpoint returns the Zoomdata internal user IDs and user names of any user in the account with those characters in their Zoomdata user name, full name, or email.

    This endpoint can only be used to search for users in the same Zoomdata account as the user who issues the request.
