Here are the latest StatusHub updates for the last 3 months and news on the progress of our new control panel.

Performance

  • Performance has been improved for Hubs with 1,000+ services.

New Control Panel

In this update, we would like to share with you how connected hubs are being displayed, as this was one of the main reasons we decided to rebuild our old control panel.


On Dashboard, you can see all primary and connected hubs. In this example, we will show in more details Company X. From this screen you can see that “Company X” is the primary hub and it has 3 connected hubs based on the region. Here you have the ability to create incident or maintenance events, go to the status page or to the overview screen of any hub.



On the screenshot below you can see the Connected Hubs for different regions that belong to the Primary hub “Company X”. You can find this by following the “Connected Hubs” section in the Hub Config.



In the Primary Hub if you go to the “Services and integrations” in Hub config settings you will see groups and services for the hub.



Here, for example, are services that belong to the “Product” group. From here you can manage all details for the services and integrations.



For the connected hub (in this case “US Hub”) in Hub Config instead of “Services and integrations” you will find “Groups and services” settings. From here you can set what services will be shared and what services are individual. In this case, we have 3 global core services and only 1 individual service in the “Product” group that belongs to this concrete connected hub. This is what end users will see on the status page of the US hub: 4 services in total.



Inside the product group, you can check (and edit) what service belongs to this hub. This means that the US status page will be updated only when the “application US '' service status will be updated.
