Hogan's Alley Quarterly Release Details

Hogan's Alley was released on March 3, 2020. The Hogan's Alley release includes improvements for service teams, Flow Designer integration enhancements, new reporting features, and more.

For all the details, see the Hogan's Alley (Feb/March) 2020 Release Overview.

Next Release: Indy (June/July 2020)

We've already started working on our next quarterly release, which we've named Indy. Follow the Indy Development Highlights & Support Notes page so that you receive updates throughout the quarter on all of the fun and functionality we're working on.

Introduction

We're hard at work on our next quarterly release, Hogan's Alley, which will be rolling out in the Jan/Feb 2020 time frame. Please follow this article and its comments to receive updates throughout the quarter about new features and functionality that we're working on for the Hogan's Alley release.

Customers interested in previewing new features before they're released can opt into our Early Access Program (EAP), which delivers new features into non-production environments as they're rolled off the assembly line.

We'll also use this document to capture highlights of additions and updates to our mobile platforms and the xMatters REST API.

Deployment Details

For more information on how a feature in this article works, click the online help links embedded in each topic. As with any of our Community articles, you can click any image or animated GIF to see a larger version.

Support Notes

For a list of additional changes made in each deployment that are not covered in the Development Highlights, see the On-Demand support notes included below each highlight. While most features will be added to production environments as part of our quarterly releases, the support notes typically describe fixes, which can sometimes affect product behavior.

March 9-13, 2020

While there are no feature highlights to tell you about this week, we did feel it was important to let you know about a new workshop we're offering:

Communicating during a viral outbreak

The COVID-19 outbreak has organizations scrambling to update employees and customers with the latest critical information. In such a fluid situation, it’s important to balance your employees’ need for clear health and policy guidance, and your customers’ expectation that your digital business will be available. 

xMatters can help you quickly get the right information to each target audience through multiple channels and on almost any device. To that end, we’re offering clients a free workshop as an initial step to keep business continuity managers aware of the latest CDC news about the virus. We’ll walk you through how you can use xMatters to get these alerts out in formats more visible than email, and how to automatically distribute that information to your user groups (including via Flow Designer). 

Check out the available sessions and sign up here: Upcoming Workshops Schedule

We've upped the length of the group description field from 200 to 1024 characters. This gives you more room to add descriptive keywords for your groups, like the service name or key responsibilities: 

group-description1.png

Having more keywords makes it easier to find the right resources when you're searching for recipients on message forms, using the xMatters REST API, or with our integration chatbots in products like MS Teams and Slack.

February 3-7, 2020

Flow Designer: Zendesk trigger & workflow

Availability: Now in xMatters

We've added a built-in Zendesk trigger to Flow Designer. Available from a new App Triggers section on the Triggers tab of the palette, you can drag this trigger onto the canvas and use it to initiate flows when Flow Designer receives requests from Zendesk:

zendesk-trigger.png

Go with the workflow!

This trigger is also used in our new packaged 'Zendesk Alerts' workflow, which includes flows with pre-configured steps to update and add comments to Zendesk tickets with information from the xMatters event. Our workflow instructions also include information on automatically determining notification recipients based on their user or group assignment in Zendesk. If you're using Zendesk in your incident management processes, you'll want to check out this new workflow!

zendesk-workflow-example.png

xMatters REST API: GET /roles

Availability: Now in the xMatters REST API

Roles control how users can interact with xMatters, including which features they can access, whether they can send notifications, manage other users, create workflows, configure xMatters, and more. You can now use the xMatters REST API to look up the roles which are visible to you in xMatters. You can request a list of all roles, or narrow the results by searching for a role name:

  • GET /roles - returns a list of all roles that are visible to the authenticating user.
  • GET /roles?name={term} - returns a role with a name that is an exact match to the term provided.
    • To search based on a partial match, you can use the allowWildcards query parameter (for examples, see the documentation)

xMatters REST API: GET /people by supervisor

Availability: Now in the xMatters REST API

Need to look up all the users that a specific person supervises? You can now do this programmatically using the xMatters REST API. We've added a new supervisors query parameter to GET /people that you can use to return users that one or more people supervise. For example:

  • GET /people?supervisors=mmcbride - returns all users Mary McBride supervises.
  • GET /people?supervisors=mmcbride,asamara - returns all users who have either Mary McBride OR Ali Samara as their supervisor.

January 27-31, 2020

xMatters REST API: GET /people updates

Availability: Now in the xMatters REST API

We've just equipped the GET /people endpoint with the following new query parameters that you can use to find users who meet particular criteria:

  • status - users that are inactive or active. For example, GET /people?status=ACTIVE
  • supervisors.exists - users that have a supervisor, or those that don't. For example, GET /people?supervisors.exists=TRUE
  • devices.exists - users that have devices in their profile, or not. For example: GET /people?devices.exists=TRUE
  • devices.testStatus - users with devices in a particular test status, such as those with untested devices. For example: GET /people?devices.testStatus={UNTESTED}

xMatters REST API: New GET /audits records

Availability: Now in the xMatters REST API

The GET /audits endpoint allows you to access audit records for actions that occur in your system, such as how recipients responded to an event and the comments they made. We've been building out this endpoint over time, and you can now use it to retrieve the following auditType records for your events:

  • EVENT_CREATED - when an event was created
  • EVENT_SUSPENDED - when an event was suspended
  • EVENT_RESUMED - when an event was resumed
  • EVENT_COMPLETED - when an event was completed
  • EVENT_TERMINATED - when an event was terminated

Support notes (week of Jan 27-31)

COR-32328
(SUP-21113)
Messaging - scheduled messages: Fixed an issue that was preventing the delivery of some scheduled messages.

January 20-24, 2020

xMatters REST API: Get all temporary absences

Availability: Now in the xMatters REST API

You can now use GET /temporary-absences to return the scheduled absences for all users you have access to in xMatters (instead of just a single user). We've also added two new search parameters that you can use to narrow down your results:

  • absenceType - search for absences that have a replacement user, or for those that don't.
  • groups - search for temporary absences for a particular group, or groups.

xMatters: An enhanced navigation experience

Availability: Early Access Program

In case you missed our recent announcement, as part of the upcoming Hogan's Alley Quarterly Release we're introducing an enhanced navigation experience:

new-nav-overview.png

The main benefit of the new navigation design, with its collapsible side menu, is that it frees up a lot of extra screen real estate for you to work with your data in xMatters. With all the new data columns we're adding to the All Events report, we think you're really going to appreciate the extra elbow room!

For the full details, see our announcement of the enhanced navigation experience. Or better yet, if you're enrolled in our Early Access Program, you can experience it first-hand in your non-production environment right now!

Messaging: New recipient selector

Availability: Early Access Program

Another feature from the Hogan's Alley Quarterly Release that's now available in the Early Access Program is a new and improved recipient selector for message and subscription forms. Our new design makes it waaay easier to search for and select multiple recipients at the same time:

recipient-selector.gif

Lions, and tigers, and devices - oh my!

Just like our previous recipient selector, you can filter by the type of recipient you want to search for, including All, Users, Groups, and Dynamic Teams:

recipients-available.png

You'll notice that when you select 'Users' from the available recipients drop-down, you now have a separate option to search for Devices:

recipients-user-devices.png

Separating users and devices prevents you from unintentionally selecting a user's device - like their home phone - as a recipient, instead of their username (which is what you'd want to do the majority of the time so that xMatters contacts them according to their configured device settings and timeframes).

Improved response counts

As part of our work on the recipient selector, we also improved the usability of specifying response counts. In case you're not aware, you can use response counts to specify the number of recipients that must respond to a message before xMatters stops attempting to notify a group.

With a little rearranging, more descriptive labels, and helpful tooltips, we think you'll now find this feature more straightforward and intuitive to use:

recipients-count-responses.png

Help Resources: Getting started guide for new users

Are you new to xMatters? Do you wish someone could give you a quick run-through of how to get started so that you're ready to receive and respond to notifications?

Well, you're in luck! We've just released a no-nonsense, easy-to-follow getting started guide for new xMatters users. It'll walk you through the basics of logging into the web application and mobile app, lead you through setting up your devices and checking your on-call schedule, and show you what to expect when getting a notification.

It also includes additional recommendations for more in-depth documentation and resources that are available to help launch you from a newbie to an 'xPert' in no time!

Keep an eye out for the complete Hogan's Alley feature overview, coming on Tuesday, February 18!

Reporting: Historical on-call report

Availability: Now in xMatters

The Historical On Call report announced in the Galaga Release is now available! Located on the Groups tab, the report makes it easy for supervisors to download information for on-call users in their organization and use it for compensation and planning purposes.

historical-on-call-report-mvp.png

Use the 'From' and 'To' fields to export up to 100 days of historical data to a spreadsheet (.xls) file. The date selectors allow you to go as far back as data availability and your pricing plan allow (we started populating the report with data on January 1, 2020).

Helpful resources:

Mobile: Android 2.22

Android users, you'll want to head over to the the Google Play store to get the latest version of the xMatters app, which includes all of these new goodies:

  • See in the dark - The app now supports Night mode when it's enabled on your device.
  • Give your thumbs a break - You don't have to type .xmatters.com when you log into the app.
  • More accurate group search - The app now returns groups that match all of your search criteria. 
  • Android 10 Support - Get this version of the app to keep things running smoothly on Android’s latest OS.

Reporting: Export All Events report

Availability: Now in xMatters

The All Events report now includes an Export option that you can use to export either 'All Columns', or just the 'Current Columns' you've selected to include in the on-screen report:

all-events-export.png

Export like a pro

To save yourself extra time formatting the exported spreadsheet, you can first filter, sort, and arrange the report in the web user interface. Then, when you're ready to export, xMatters preserves your formatting in the exported file!

If you selected the option to export all columns in the report, xMatters exports the current results as you've arranged them in the web user interface, and then appends any additional columns in alphabetical heading order to the right of the last column of current results.

You'll notice two tabs on the exported file:

  • Export Details - a summary of the report, including the date range, initiator of the export, and search filters applied to the report.
  • Events - the list of events for the specified timeframe.

Integrations: xMatters Actionable Alerts for Splunk updates

Availability: Now from splunkbase

A new version of xMatters Actionable Alerts for Splunk is now available for Cloud and Enterprise Splunk customers. If you're updating to the latest and greatest version of Splunk (v7.2-8.0), then you'll want this update because it's compatible with Python 3.

Messaging: 'Alert Context' property

Availability: Now in xMatters

As a message recipient, it's often useful to have more context about why you're receiving a notification. By knowing if you were targeted directly, because of your membership in a group, or from one of your subscriptions, you'll have better insight into your role and responsibilities in the incident resolution process.

To help with this, we've added a new "Alert Context" property to our message editors that you can include in your messages to show recipients how they were notified for an event:

alert-context.gif

Can I get more context, please?

When the message is sent, xMatters replaces the Alert Context property with the path used to notify you, as shown in the the examples below:

  • Directly targeted: "Direct Notification"
  • As part of a group: "DBAs > P.M. Shift"
  • As part of sub-group: "Campus D > Default > DBAs > P.M. Shift" etc.
  • Subscription notifications: "Product Recalls Subscription"
  • Group subscription notifications: "Product Recalls Subscription > DBAs > P.M. Shift"

As shown below, even though Mary McBride is a member of several different groups in her organization (like IT, First Responders, and Party Planning) she knows she's been invited to the conference bridge for her IT expertise in developing mobile apps - not to help with this year's Holiday party:

alert-context-notified-as.png

All Events report: 'Source' column

Availability: Now in xMatters

Need more context about your past events? The All Events report now includes a Source column that displays the name of the built-in or custom workflow used to create the event:

all-events-source-column.png

xMatters REST API: Get people by role

Availability: Now in the xMatters REST API

Ever wished you could programmatically look up the users in your system with a particular role (or set of roles) in xMatters? Like the Incident Managers? Or users that are Incident Managers and also have the Developer role?

Well, the great news is that you can now use GET /people to do just that! When you query this endpoint, specify which role or roles you're interested in by their name or ID. For example:

  • GET /people?roles={Incident Manager}
  • GET /people?roles={Incident Manager,Developer}

xMatters REST API: Details for read-only access forms

Availability: Now in the xMatters REST API

Like we implemented last week for plans (AKA workflows), now when you use the xMatters REST API to request information about a form that you don't have access to, instead of getting a 403 Forbidden error you'll receive basic details about the form including its UUID, name, description, as well as the ID and name of the plan (AKA workflow) it belongs to.

xMatters REST API: Get targeted recipients

Availability: Now in the xMatters REST API

If you're using the GET /events endpoint to return a list of events, you now have the option to embed targeted recipients. For example: GET /events?embed=targetedRecipients

To retrieve events that targeted a specific user, you can explicitly search for just the events targeting that user by identifying them by target name or UUID. For example:

  • GET /events?targetedRecipients=mmcbride
  • GET /events?targetedRecipients=c56730a9-1435-4ae2-8c7e-b2539e635ac6

xMatters REST API: Embed text property translations

Availability: Now in the xMatters REST API

Do you have text properties configured in more than one language? If you're interested in looking up the values assigned to text properties for different languages as you're working with scenarios, you now have the option to embed translations:

  • GET /scenarios/{scenarioId}?embed=properties,plan,form,properties.translations
  • GET /plans/{planId}/forms/{formId}/scenarios?embed=properties.translations

When you include these optional embeds in your request to GET /scenarios or GET /plans/{planId}/forms/{formId}/scenarios, the xMatters REST API returns the translated text for each property with a two-letter code for the corresponding language:

    "myTextProperty": {
           "propertyType": "TEXT",
           "value": "This is urgent. Please respond.",
           "translations": {
               "en": "This is urgent. Please respond.",
               "fr": "C'est urgent. S'il vous plaît, répondez."
            }
    },

xMatters REST API: Details for read-only access plans

Availability: Now in the xMatters REST API

Even if you don't have edit permissions to all the plans (AKA workflows) in your xMatters instance, it's still useful to know that they exist and to be able to see basic information about them. Now when you use GET /plans or GET /plans/{planId} for plans that you don't have edit permissions for, instead of getting a 403 Forbidden error you'll instead receive details about each plan including its UUID, name, description, and whether it's enabled.

Flow Designer: Merge flow paths

Availability: Now in xMatters

It's now possible to connect multiple paths of a flow to the input port of a single step. This is useful when different segments of your flow follow the same series of steps. By merging them into a common path, you reduce duplicated configuration and simplify the layout of your canvas:

flow-designer-merge-paths.png

In the example above, the flow uses a switch step to split the flow based on a customer_impacting event property. A value of "Yes" creates a Statuspage incident and then posts to a NOC dashboard, while any other value just posts straight to the dashboard. Joining both flow paths directly to the same 'Post to NOC' step removes a duplicate step from the canvas and saves configuration time!

Workflows: Send Alerts

Availability: Now in xMatters

A new Send Alerts workflow is now available from our collection of Workflow Templates. We've designed this pre-built workflow template to help you start notifying users and groups with minimal setup. It lets you create an event and send notifications by simply sending an email or HTTP request to xMatters.

send-alerts-workflow.gif

You can use this workflow to quickly send test messages, learn how workflows work, and as a starting point for creating your own workflows. To get up to speed quickly, see our Send Alerts workflow guide.

Mobile: iOS 3.31

We've just released a new version of the xMatters iOS app, which includes a TON of great new updates! Here's an overview:

  • Duplicate events - When you manage events from the app, you can now copy an existing event, modify some of its properties, and resend it as a new event.
  • Reply to push messages - Long press or pull down on a push message from your lock screen or the notification center to reply or to join a conference bridge.
  • Edit shifts when you’re on the go - Tap on a shift in My Schedule to change that shift occurrence’s duration or its members.
  • On-call schedule at-a-glance - A fresh new look for the on-call widget makes it even easier to tell when you’re next on call for a shift.
  • Star or Send with ease - We’ve improved the placement of the Star and Send controls so fingers of all sizes can reliably select one without tapping the other.

xMatters REST API: Get user delivery data

Availability: Now in the xMatters REST API

We've added a new endpoint to the xMatters REST API that lets you look up information about who was notified for an event. Some of our customers like to use this data to create reports in other systems such as Splunk or Tableau. Here's the new endpoint:

Since this endpoint queries historical data, you'll need to include the at parameter in your request. You can also optionally embed the person.properties query parameter to include the values of the custom fields and attributes assigned to each person (for example: GET /events/{eventID}/user-deliveries?at={timestamp}?embed=person.properties). 

All Events report: View events for the groups you supervise

Availability: Now in On-Demand

We've added a new permission that allows you to view events for the groups you supervise. This makes it easier for Group Supervisors to stay informed and take action on any events targeting the groups that they supervise. For more information about this permission, and to add it to your company's Group Supervisor role, contact xMatters Support.

xMatters REST API: Get, create, and modify scenarios

Availability: Now in the xMatters REST API

Scenarios allow you to save multiple versions of a form with predefined values for common or anticipated situations, making it easier to send relevant messages quickly when those situations arise. You can now use the following xMatters REST API endpoints to look up information about scenarios, and to create and modify them:

Flow Designer: Update Jira status

Availability: Now in On-Demand

Flow Designer's built-in steps to update issues in Jira Cloud or Jira Server now include the option to change the status of the issue. This means that as an incident progresses, you can keep its status up-to-date in Jira (for example, you could change its status from "To Do" to "In Progress" to "Resolved").

Flow Designer: ServiceNow endpoint updates

Availability: Now in On-Demand

It's now easier to include ServiceNow in your incident management workflows! You're no longer required to have the xMatters app installed in your ServiceNow instance to connect your steps to the ServiceNow endpoint, which makes it a lot more convenient to get ServiceNow steps up-and-running in Flow Designer.

Mobile: Android 2.21

A new version of the xMatters Android app is now available! Head on over to the Google Play store to take advantage of the following updates:

My Schedule calendar view

There's a new calendar view for My Schedule that you can use to quickly and easily look up which days you're on call - just click the calendar icon at the top of the My Schedule screen:

Android_calendar_view.png

The calendar displays a green dot on the days where you're scheduled to be on call, and you can tap on any day to see your on-call shifts. As you scroll your list of shifts, the monthly calendar view collapses to a weekly view to give more screen real-estate to your shift information:

Android_calendar_weekly.png

You can use the calendar to view your on-call schedule for up to the next 90 days. A handy "Today" shortcut makes it easy to quickly return to today's on-call schedule. You can also use the shift filter to choose which on-call shifts to display - where you're primary on-call, primary or secondary on-call, or all of your shifts.

Android_calendar_options.png

Available update notices

Take advantage of the latest app updates as soon as they're released! The xMatters Android app now lets you know when a new version of the app becomes available.

To get the latest and greatest updates, just tap to download and to relaunch the app. If it's not a convenient time, tap 'Remind me later' and we'll notify you again the next time you open the app.

About the early access delivery process

Customers can choose to opt their non-production environments into an Early Access Program (EAP) to see new functionality before it's released. If you're considering signing up for the early access program, there are a couple of important things to know:

  • Enrollment in EAP can be turned on any time through a support request.
  • Exiting EAP can only be done on quarterly boundaries (you cannot opt in and out between quarterly releases).

For full details, refer to the official On-Demand Deployment Process & Early Access article.
