HPE released version 2.0.26 with the following enhancements and bug fixes:

  • Collection has been enhanced to process DL server usage files in support of DL service configuration and alert processing.

 

  • You can now access contextual help directly from the Monthly Charges and Capacity Planning widgets.
  • Fixed bug: When creating a group in permissions, the help text inside the group Name field was "New user's email address".  This text has been removed.
  • Fixed bug: When creating or editing a permissions group in the CA Portal, the Save button didn't work unless a data filter was added.  This has been corrected so you can save a group without defining a data filter.
  • Fixed bug: After updating a decimal field's aggregation function and decimal place values in data maintenance, while the aggregation function was correctly updated to use the default in reports, the decimal place value was not. The decimal place value now updates correctly in reports, per the default.

  • Collection has been enhanced to process SAN usage files in support of SAN service configuration and alert processing.
  • The Budgets functionality has been enhanced to apply budget to actual usage, so that budgets make sense in situations where a usage commitment is reported at the beginning of a period and then distributed over individual days, as the account accrues actual usage against it.  The budget documentation at The HPE GreenLake Flex Capacity Customer View and Budgets will be updated with further information on this enhancement.
  • Fixed bug: AWS metrics for a specific customer were not displaying correctly in the HPE Consumption Analytics Portal; this was resolved with corrections to the collection logic, and tested successfully.
  • Fixed bug: Buttons in the Group editor were overlapping the content in IE 11.  
  • Fixed bug: For certain customers, blank pages were showing for Capacity Planning when using some "Group By" options. The capacity visualization was updated to take a recent code change into account, which resolved the issue.

You can make a view available to a user or group by sharing it with them when saving the view.
  • Azure customers now get values for the Resource Group field for all resources, not just those for which HPE Consumption Analytics Portal has Azure subscription access. Resource group names are now collected from the billing CSV file. Values are also converted to all uppercase to remove the inconsistent casing applied by Azure and provide more meaningful reporting.

Though the matching works correctly going forward, recollecting or reprocessing your Azure collection cannot apply this fix to historical data.
  • Fixed bug: When creating or editing in Insights, there were a few problems. Changing the selected Metric or Group By field had no effect, after selecting a different rule template you couldn't save the insight, and some dropdown menus did not close after you selected a value.
