We are happy to inform that Efento Cloud recently got an update. Update includes performance improvements, minor bug fixes and a buch of new features. Update is now rolled out for all Efento Cloud organisations and users are not required to take any actions. All changes are described in the Efento Cloud user manual.
It is now possible to define hours ranges in which the alarm rules will be active. This allows the users to configure alert rules that will only be active on the weekends or outside of business hours. By default, each rule is active 24/7 (no matter at what time, or on what day the measurements received by the platform are above / below threshold, the rule will be triggered and the notifications will be sent). If you prefer the rule to be active only in the selected time periods (eg. Monday to Friday 8 AM to 5 PM or only on the weekends), you can use the rule calendars. In order to enable it, check the checkbox next to enable the rule only within the specified time ranges.
The table shows days of the week along with the information, when the rule is enabled. To add hours ranges, click on the Add hours ranges button and select days and time ranges, in which the rule will be active. Please note that it is possible to set multiple hours ranges for each day. For instance, if the rule should be active outside the business hours each day of the week, set two time ranges: 00:00 – 08:00 and 17:00-23:59. Click the Save button to save the changes.
Once a rule is set, the summary containing the information on what days and in which hours it is active is visible in the rule configuration view. To remove the hours range click on “X” button in the chip. To add additional time periods, in which the rule will be active click the Add hours ranges button.
Webhooks are used to integrate Efento Cloud with any third party application. If a webhook is configured, once a new measurement arrives in Efento Cloud, it will be automatically sent as JSON over REST (POST) to the set URL. Efento Cloud allows users to configure a separate URL for each sensor added to the platform. The payload documentation, data parsing examples and webhook configuration is described in chapter “15. Webhooks” of the Efento Cloud user manual
In order to add sensors to Efento Cloud, the user needs licenses keys. The recently added License manager allows users to check which licenses are assigned to their sensors and what’s their lifetime. Moreover, users will be notified by email, if the license’s lifetime is close to expiration. Detailed information about the Licence manager and how to use it is included in the Efento Cloud user manual, chapter “16. License manager”.

On top of the new features, we have fixed a bunch of minor front end bugs and improved front end performance.
