Check it out by using the feature toggle at the bottom left of the Cloud Manager and selecting normal or compact view.

0.49.0

0.49.0: 2019-02-27

In our latest release we have introduced refined search capability. You can now specify whether you want to search by entity type, label, tag, or IP address. These search terms can be combined using Boolean operators to create complex search queries to give you exactly the results you’re looking for.

You can access this search functionality from the Search bar at the top of each page. This would be useful if you are looking for all of your Linodes, NodeBalancers, and Domains tied to a given environment, customer, or location.

A search such as:

type:linode OR type:domain OR type:nodebalancer AND tag:production

will result in a listing of all of your Linodes, Domains, and NodeBalancers that are associated with the tag production.

is:linode || is:domain || is:nodebalancer && tag:production

will return the same results.

Here is a full listing of what has been Added, Changed, and Fixed in this release:

Added:

  • Enhanced Search functionality!
    • Users can now specify the search entity with type:{linode, volume, domain, nodebalancer} or is:{linode, volume, domain, nodebalancer}
    • Aside from entities, other searchable fields are label:, tags:, and ips:.
    • Users can search for entries with multiple tags applied by adding the desired tags to a comma separated list after specifying the tags field. Example tags:tagA,tagB will return all entities with tagA and tagB applied.
    • The same pattern described above applies to the ips as well.
    • Logical operators can by applied to queries: &&/AND, ||/OR, - for the not operator, and grouping with (). A query with multiple fields and no operators is implicitly treated as true for all.
  • Status indicators have been incorporated into the entity icons for Linodes and Domains to provide a better visual experience.
    • Also added the Linode icon and status to the power button.
  • A reset password button in Profile > Password & Authentication that will open the reset password workflow in a separate tab.
  • A better user experience for secondary/restricted account users that displays messaging around and disables features that the user doesn’t have access to.

Changed:

  • Domains now displayed in alphabetical order on the Domain listing page.
  • Timestamps display in last backup table rather than humanized dates.
  • Added a tooltip on the power icon for a Linode with no image, indicating that an image must be added to the Linode in order to boot.

Fixed:

  • Removed client side validation that incorrectly prevented user from creating a Linode when the label started with a numeric character.

0.47.0

0.47.0: 2019-01-29

It’s that time of year where organization and prioritization are at the top of everyone’s mind. They certainly have been for the Linode Cloud Manager team!

In today‚Äôs release, we have finalized the organizational offering to display Linodes, Volumes, NodeBalancers, and Domains by tag. Each entity page will show an ungrouped list by default, but switching the toggle at the top of the page to “group by tag” gives users the ability to organize their resources by tags.

As a reminder, tags have more power than that.

The use of tags on Volumes and NodeBalancers is a win. We didn’t have the ability to add classification labels like production, testing, backup, or customer name/account to Volumes and NodeBalancers in Classic Manager. Display groups were a feature of Classic Manager that were limited to Linodes and Domains. Now tags can be added to Linodes, Domains, Volumes, and NodeBalancers.

Why Tag? Here are some advantages:

  • Associate one or more tags to each of your resources.
  • This will allow you to view all tagged Linodes, Volumes, Domains, and NodeBalancers when searching by tag.
  • The view by tag feature organizes all tagged resources together. You can now activate this option from the landing page for each resource type; the listed items will then be separated into a group for each tag.
  • Tags are actionable: you can click on a tag anywhere in the Manager and be taken to a results page where you can view all entities that have that tag.
  • You can also start typing a tag name (such as production) into the search bar at the top of each page to view a list of all entities with a matching tag.

Also in this release, and in keeping with the spirit of those January improvement goals, we hit the Design Gym to practice some conditioning and tone up our Cloud Manager. Our Design and Engineering team worked to promote uniformity with each entity and present the look and feel of the search results page throughout the application.

Here is a full listing of what has been Added, Changed, and Fixed:

Added:

  • Sorting for remaining Linode table headers.
  • Entity icons on Dashboard page, and entity listing pages for:
    • NodeBalancers
    • Domains

  • Fixed an issue where attempting to create a linode from a snapshot (coming from the linode detail page) displayed plans smaller than the original Linode snapshot as selectable.

  • Issue where users were unable to deploy a new linode from a snapshot when landing on the Create From Backup creation page from the Linode Detail * Backups page.
  • Resolved an edge case where attempting to restore a snapshot to an existing linode, if the restore drawer was dismissed and then reopened, the Linodes select would fail to list any linodes.
