Unomaly 2.30 was released on October 11, 2018.

Configure new installs from the UI

To simplify the install and configuration process, this release introduces a configuration wizard to help you set up your Unomaly instance. The configuration steps include: adding a license to the instance, setting up the email server, and creating the first user.


This means that for first time installs, you only need to use the console menu to configure the instance IP address or host name. Then, you can browse to the instance and complete the configuration from the Unomaly web interface.

Learn Unomaly concepts with the in-app tutorial

New users will now have the option of taking a tutorial when they log into Unomaly for the first time. This tutorial will help users learn how to use the UI and explain the key concepts of Unomaly (such as systems, situations, and knowns). You can run the tutorial at any time from the menu.


Understand the breakdown of anomalies in a situation

We’ve improved the annotation of anomalies in a situation. Now, when you expand a situation you will see an overview of the types of anomalies that make up the situation. For example, the breakdown of events in the situation may include: New event in the entire infrastructure, New event in this system (occurred in others), Frequency spike, and so on.


Try the new experimental scoring on situations

In this release, we are experimenting with a new scoring algorithm that calculates the score for situations based on the amount of anomalies it contains. This differs from the current scoring, which prioritizes new data (such as never before seen events) for higher scores.


The new scoring algorithm should produce fewer high score situations and is less sensitive to tokenization issues. The new scoring algorithm will apply to new detections from the moment you enable the feature. Expect 5-10 days for the algorithm to tune.

See more about the feature and how to enable it in the Experimental Scoring Technical Note.
