SLO Reporting Data via API




The SLO API now returns a reset_at date attribute in the GET payload for SLOs. For Enterprise customers, we've added a new ?detailed query param which returns the current SLO compliance percentage as well as the remaining budget percentage.

Navigation: History and Activity are now Combined




Activity has now been consolidated into History in the Navigation sidebar. Access History to see your Query History, Saved Boards, My Saved Queries and Team's Saved Queries from a single location!

BubbleUp charts visualization improvements




We have tweaked the visualization of BubbleUp charts so that when you're looking at columns where all values are different (such as span IDs or UUIDs), the bars representing the baseline and selection will be a uniform height. This can help show any frequent values in the baseline compared to the selection.


Two additional updates we have made:

  1. When in SLO mode, the columns are labelled failed and successful.
  2. We have added language to describe counts, i.e., we say “occurs” x times.

Dataset API adds Dataset Definitions




The Dataset API now has support for managing Dataset Definitions. Dataset Definitions are used for configuring trace schema fields.

Read more in the documentation.

Navigation Bar Updates: Changelog & Support




Changelog and Support are now accessible inside of the Account sub-menu. Click on Account to access new product updates, contact support or view documentation. Any feedback on this new change can be shared in our Pollinators #ux-feedback slack channel!

Derived Column Visual Updates




Preview Data Improvements

Previously, Derived Column previews would evaluate to a column on the right. We've pulled this to the left with additional UI highlighting to make this easier to view and assess.


Opt-In Derived Column Editor

All teams will now see the new Derived Column Editor by default. If you prefer the old experience, you can toggle it off in the upper right hand corner.

Other UI Enhancements

  • The modal uses a sticky footer.
  • We've added the syntax reference link to the new editor.

If you have any feedback, feel free to share them in our Pollinators #ux-feedback channel or via the Survey in the New Editor tooltip.

Graph Snapshots added to Pagerduty Alerts




Honeycomb Triggers integrated with Pagerduty will now attach a snapshot of the graph associated with the trigger query. This update applies to Triggers only and does not yet apply to Burn Alerts.

OpenTelemetry Logs, OpenTelemetry Go, and the Road Ahead




We released support for OpenTelemetry Logs and a new SDK distribution for OpenTelemetry Go! Read more about how to get started with both, and as a bonus, learn a little bit about the road ahead for our support for OpenTelemetry.

Raw Data Filter Search




You can now search for specific fields when selecting field filters on the Raw Data tab of your query results, making it easier to find interesting fields in large datasets.

A view of the Raw Data tab of some query results. There are 55 fields in a left sidebar, and the user scrolls to the bottom of the page to find a field near the bottom. The user then scrolls back to the top of the fields in the left sidebar, types a search query into the the Field Search box, and checks some of the resulting fields. The results table then updates to only display those fields.][Screen Recording 2022-08-26 at 02.49.32 PM.gif

Experimental Derived Column Editor




You can now try our new experimental Derived Column Editor! This includes updates such as a larger editor to create your expressions, function autocomplete, and inline error handling. Toggle it ON or OFF in the Derived Column Modal which can be accessed via Dataset Settings > Schema > Derived Column > Edit/Add New Derived Column.


We're still testing updates and changes to the Derived Columns experience. If you have any feedback, feel free to share them in our Pollinators #ux-feedback channel or via the Survey in the New Editor tooltip.
