Release notes for exMon Release 5.3
Created by: Gunnar Tómas Gunnarsson
exMon 5.3 focuses on a new add-on to the exMon environment along with two major feature improvements, minor improvements and bug fixes.
Out of the box, the dashboard add-on gives users the option to analyze exceptions better, whether from the perspective of their users, individual tests, or their overall exception status.
This addon also allows those who focus more on process management to see an overview of their exMon executions and options to expand these dashboards into the future, both improvements of these two dashboards as well as options to add custom dashboards.
Execution Connection configuration can be configured by the Environment
In exMon 5.3 you can now separate an Execution Connection configuration by the environment. This change primarily benefits Discovery Hub and Data Transfer packages which before would always use the same Execution Connection, whether they were running on Development or Production.
This change will also simplify the setup of Command-Line packages that use the same Working Directory and Command-Line.
With exMon 5.3 we've released improved exMon dimensions. Dimensions allow the user to view their exceptions from a different perspective. A perspective focused rather on the data that exceptions have in common instead of when the exceptions were created.
You can read more about dimensions under How do I use Dimensions?
