Default Granularity for Datasets

 

Improvement

 

 

For periodic data captured at regular intervals, such as metric data, you can now set a minimum default granularity to ensure that queries don't drop below it (goodbye spiky graphs). You can also still override the default granularity on each individual query as needed.

New Honeycomb Management API

 

New

 

 

The Honeycomb Management API is now generally available to all Honeycomb users. This is a set of endpoints that let you programmatically set up, configure, and delete queries, datasets, derived columns, and more.

With this release, you can now manage Honeycomb with configuration as code either directly via API or with third-party tools, like Terraform, using the community-contributed Honeycomb provider. These capabilities enable advanced automation of common Honeycomb tasks that can improve your workflow.

Auto-Run Queries on Zoom

 

Improvement

 

 

Queries now auto-run whenever you zoom into your charts! You can spend less time clicking and more time digging into your data. Find us in the ux-feedback channel in our Honeycomb Pollinators Slack if you have any feedback.

Trigger API: Triggered Status

 

Improvement

 

 

The public API for triggers includes a new field, triggered, that returns the current state. This addition allows you to more seamlessly integrate triggers into your workflow. The change is not yet available in Secure Tenancy, but will be included in the next release. You can find more information in our docs.

New Query Date Range Options

 

Improvement

 

 

Based on customer requests, we've changed the available options in the date range picker for queries and boards. Visit us in the ux-feedback channel in Honeycomb's Pollinators Slack if you have any feedback.

Improved Query Naming

 

New

 

 

Honeycomb now handles names and descriptions for saved queries with ease. This blog post details all of the improvements included in this update, which makes the experience of working with saved queries more powerful and intuitive than ever. We've also resolved a number of issues, such as queries on boards changing to "Untitled" when the date range is changed, and query names not appearing in browser tabs and history.

Event ingestion times now available

 

New

 

 

The new INGEST_TIMESTAMP() derived column function can help you find and debug event latency or inaccurate timestamps.

// How many seconds did it take for this event to arrive?
SUB(INGEST_TIMESTAMP(),EVENT_TIMESTAMP())

Honeycomb began storing ingestion times on January 28; events created before this will have INGEST_TIMESTAMP() == EVENT_TIMESTAMP().
