CloverDX 5.8 focuses on the Operations aspect of using CloverDX. We're introducing the Operations Dashboard that helps you to quickly see the health of your business processes. The Operations Dashboard is the new landing page of Server Console to bring focus to the oversight of your data processing. On the backend, the dashboard communicates with the Server via a new REST API. This new Monitoring API is public and allows you to create your own dashboard integrations.
The Operations Dashboard offers a quick way of seeing status and health of your business processes. The Dashboard displays tiles called Monitors with each Monitor showing health of processes according to your own configuration. Each Monitor can track any number of job automation triggers – Data Services and Data Apps, Scheduler, Event Listeners – and provides summary of their health.
Monitors provide a way to quickly see an issue and drill-down to its root cause for quick problem resolution. After reviewing the issues, each trigger can be marked as resolved to ensure that other team member do not investigate the same problem.
We’ve also implemented a new log file that allows you to track historical changes of your Monitors. This log is part of CloverDX Server support package so you can easily export and send it to our CloverCARE team for assistance.
The Operations Dashboard is backed by a modern REST API. The Monitoring REST API is public and you can use it to create custom dashboards or integrate 3rd party monitoring solutions with CloverDX.
CloverDX Server provides a complete and easy to use documentation of the REST API. You can use the documentation pages to test the API and see the responses it provides.
All of CloverDX Server's automation triggers (Data Services, Schedules and Event Listeners) now provide the same capabilities for error reporting and notifications. For example, you can specify that an Event Listener is considered as failing if it encounters an error in 10% of its executions in the last hour.
These new options provide you with robust and easy to use ways of keeping track of your CloverDX Server and allow you to monitor your processes even without having to actively look into Server Console.
If an important job is enqueued for a long time and you need it to start now, you can use the Start Enqueued Job Immediately action. With this action you manually force an enqueued job to start immediately.
