Fairwinds Insights Release Notes 15.1.1-15.5.0 App Groups Auto-Updates

This month, we’ve been working hard to make improvements to Fairwinds Insights that will make it easier to use, so you can make informed decisions about your Kubernetes environment faster. These updates include List Ticket Auto-Updates, CI Resolutions, App Groups, Admission Controller UI, Clusters Page Improvements, and Efficiency Scores. Let’s explore these new capabilities and how they will make it easier for you to make your clusters more reliable, secure, and cost-efficient.

List Ticket Auto-Updates

Tickets created in Jira, Azure DevOps, or GitHub that correspond to a list of Action Items will now auto-update as the list of Action Items changes. That means the body of the ticket will update to reflect the latest information about which Action Items still need to be addressed. It also closes the ticket when all Action Items have been addressed.

CI resolutions

Now you can resolve Action Items associated with a particular Infrastructure as Code repository. This prevents the Action Item from showing up in future scans of that repo. You can also "snooze" an Action Item to mute it for a period of time (a day, a week, a month).

App Groups

You can create logical groupings of Kubernetes resources on the App Groups page. Using App Groups, you can select resources by name, namespace, label, kind, cluster, or any combination of the above. You can also use asterisks, like kube-*, to match a prefix.

We expect to integrate App Groups into other features, such as policies, costs, and team management in the near future to make it easy for you to group resources in ways that make the most sense for you.

Admission Controller UI

We've moved the Admission Controller user interface to the main navigation. You can also now view admission requests across all clusters, instead of having to focus on one cluster at a time.

Clusters Page Improvements

We've redesigned the Clusters page so it shows the current Kubernetes version as well as agent and admission controller status.

Efficiency Scores

There’s a new column on the Costs page that displays efficiency scores for each workload to indicate how optimized a workload is (regardless of its overall scale).
