Unomaly 2.20 was released on August 23, 2017.

In this release, we’re giving you a glimpse into the future of Unomaly. You can preview a new Unomaly interface, a single page layout that focuses on the main Unomaly workflow, Situations. This release also introduces the new algorithm pipeline, which we reconstructed to improve how Unomaly learns and detects anomalies. Additionally, to improve the visual consistency of our content, we updated the styles and designs for our documentation and product notifications.

You can upgrade automatically to the latest release from the console menu or download manually.

Preview the new Unomaly interface


The Unomaly interface has a new design that puts the main Unomaly workflow, Situations, in the forefront. This single page app layout simplifies the navigation while keeping all other pages available and apparent in the sidebar.

  • Systems and groups are now accessible in the left hand sidebar, giving you quicker access to Situations for the systems or groups that you select.
  • Saved filters are now called Views, because the filtering options define ways of displaying your data and environment. If you already have saved Views in your instance, you can find them in the left hand sidebar.
  • Filtering options and selection match the framework for defining Actions. In this preview, you can edit the conditions to change the information displayed in the View.

We are excited to share our progress as we continue to iterate on the new layout and navigation. Future releases will add more functional behavior: such as editing group settings, links to other pages in the interface, and listing of “Away” situations.

To preview your data and environment in the new interface, click the cog wheel menu and select Preview new interface. To return to classic interface, click Back to classic interface in the sidebar.

As we continue to work on these improvements, we would love to hear your thoughts. Click Give your feedback in the sidebar of the new interface to leave your feedback and comments.

2.20 Pipeline

Improved the algorithm pipeline

We reconstructed the algorithm pipeline to improve how Unomaly learns, detects anomalies, and performs. Most of these changes were put in place to improve quality and make future development and updates to the algorithm more seamless and efficient. The new pipeline has the same overall functionality as the old, however, you may notice slight changes after upgrading to 2.20. For example, the new algorithm may adjust system baselines, which can affect the number of anomalies detected after the upgrade. This will not remove existing learnings and anomalies.

The upgrade should perform as usual, but please note the following:

  • Upgrading to 2.20 is expected to take some additional time. For typical deployments, this will only be a few minutes. However, larger distributed deployments may take up to a few hours.
  • Upgrading will remove all existing raw events (not learnings or anomalies) from the instance, to make room for the upgrade.

For more information, see the “Upgrade instructions”. Please contact Support for assistance if needed.

2.20 Notifications

Refreshed the look of notifications

We updated the notification and system mails you receive from Unomaly to incorporate our fresh new visual style. Our next step will be to improve the overall quality and content of these types of messages from the product.

2.20 Docs Platform

Added more style to the docs

We updated the overall design of the documentation platform to simplify the layout and improve readability. Whether you are on the landing page or reading a topic in a manual, we want to make it easier for you to find the information you’re looking for. You can also leave feedback on each of the topics: Tell us if the topic is helpful, or leave a more detailed comment or question to help us improve the docs.

2.20 Integrations docs

Relocated Integrations to the docs

Integrations now have a home in the Unomaly Documentation alongside the product manuals and guides. You can find downloads and configuration instructions for all our custom actions, transports, and add-ons. See the “Integrations overview”.
