What’s New in Coralogix What’s New in Coralogix

Last Updated: May. 04, 2023

Get up to speed on everything that’s new and improved in the Coralogix platform!

May 2023

Service Catalog

Service Catalog is a new feature added under Coralogix’s APM offering. It includes a list of all the services in your system and you can view details such as service type, number of requests sent by the service, the error rate, and the P95 latency by specifying a time range.

You can drill down on each service to look at a service map in the left pane and additional details in the right pane. The service map shows all the services connected to a root service and the right pane provides tabs for a detailed overview, actions taken by the services, health status of resources and logs of each service.

Rolling Window

Under standard user-defined alerts, if the alert conditions are set for ‘More than’, you can now choose a new type of evaluation window to define the queried time window. You can choose between the newly added Rolling Window and the existing Dynamic Creation. 

Rolling Window is a fixed timeframe and doesn’t change with alert triggers. Dynamic Duration changes the queried time period when an alert is triggered. Rolling Window is now the default choice of evaluation window and is recommended to be used when using ‘Group-by’ with an alert.

Dashboard Improvements

Pie Chart is added as a new visualization widget under custom dashboards. It comes with abilities to group-by, aggregate and stack-by data sources and other advanced controls to customize the visuals. Pie Chart is the 4th visualization widget added to custom dashboards.

In addition, ‘Metrics’ is added as a new filter type to make dashboards customizable by the source of data. A ‘Save As’ button is added to clone existing dashboards easily, and a ‘Show Only Errors’ button is added to highlight only errors in span-based widgets.

Go to Platform >

Extensions Improvements

With the new feature and design improvements, you can now do more with Extensions on Coralogix. Prometheus recording rules can now be deployed as part of an extension. Security and AWS enrichments can be deployed in addition to Geo and Custom Enrichments. Also, selective deployment of enrichments is now possible, allowing you to select only specific enrichment rules when deploying an extension.

A notification will be displayed if deploying the extension will take you over the maximum enrichment quota. Also, hover backgrounds are now shown on dashboard screenshots. And lastly, design and UI improvements have been made to Extensions.

View Documentation >

Flow Alert Group-by

The flow of alerts can now be grouped by the common group-by keys used in the defined alerts. This allows you to examine all alert stages in the context of a single field value. The group-by options available for each alert can be viewed in the Flow Builder by hovering over the alerts. 

The group-by fields that can be selected are automatically pulled from the list of fields (from Log-based alerts) and tags (from Span-based alerts), and only ones that show up throughout all alerts will be pulled out automatically for selection.

View Documentation >

OTEL Metrics

The K8S dashboard in Coralogix now supports OTEL metrics if you are using an OpenTelemetry collector with a Kubernetes orchestration together with Prometheus to send your data to Coralogix. You can use this feature along with our other application performance monitoring (APM) features, to get a full picture of your system performance.

The K8S dashboard gives you a comprehensive view of your system’s clusters, nodes and pods. In addition, the dashboard also shows the health status of your resources and displays all Kubernetes events. This guide can help you collect Kubernetes events using OpenTelemetry.

March 2023

Spans in Custom Dashboards

Custom Dashboards are now more flexible. Use spans as a new data source, along with logs and metrics. The data source is available across all existing visualizations including Line Chart, Data Table and Gauge visualizations.

Spans can also be added as a data source for filters on any Custom Dashboard, allowing you to apply filters on parameters such as Span Service. Filters in Custom Dashboards also support Span Tags, which can be added as fields in the filter. Spans filters will only affect spans widgets on a dashboard, and will not affect any widgets based on logs or metrics.

View Documentation >

Notification Groups

Alert notifications can now be grouped into multiple ‘Notification Groups’ for different keys. You can add multiple webhooks to split the alert triggers and customize the notification frequency for each webhook. 

You can further activate the ‘Notify when Resolved’ trigger to stay on top of alert notifications.

In addition, an individual notification is sent to each value of the Group By key when the unique query conditions are met within the specified timeframe. 

For example, if you have used “region” as a Group By key and let’s say, it has 2 values i.e. Region A and Region B; individual notifications will be sent to both A and B respectively.

View Documentation >

Content Column

A new Content Column is added to the ‘Explore’ screen grid, to improve visibility for content fields and distinguish them from the labels fields. Most logs will have content fields and it is now easy to extract these fields from logs, according to a predefined order list (message, log, k8s.log 


You can edit the content list and truncate long keys and values in the label fields and show them flattened instead of JSON. With this new feature, you can define important/favourite labels that will be sorted first, have a default favourites list and allow an extension to update it.

View Documentation >

Multiple API Keys

Admins can now configure multiple private API keys to send data to their Coralogix teams. You can further customize these API keys and activate/deactivate them as required. After creating the new key, it is visible in the Send Your Data section.

Customizations are made available to the private key management to create, modify, activate, deactivate, reactivate and delete the private API keys created.

To enable this feature please contact your TAM or Coralogix’s support.

Go To Platform >


Managing your extensions is now easier as you will be notified about the updates available for your extensions through a notification bar found at the top of the Extensions screen. Further, an ‘Update’ button is added, that can be used to update an already deployed extension. 

For some older extensions, you may have to remove and redeploy them by selecting the required applications and sub-systems. This way you can switch between versions and stay up to date with the extensions you are actively using.

Go To Platform >

Data Usage Report

Under the Data Usage section, you can now download a detailed data usage report. The report 

is exported as a CSV file and the generation of these reports is available by API.

The detailed usage report will contain multiple fields including the application, sub-systems, severity, TCO tier, type of data source, amount of GBs sent and amount of units sent.

Go To Platform >

Metric Usage Trend

Along with the Metrics Cardinality feature, the ‘Metrics Usage’ screen can offer you a visual representation of your metrics-related data. Expanding on this capability, we have now added a new visualization i.e. ‘Metrics Usage Trend’. This allows you to visualise 7 days of history for each metric value within the Metrics Usage screen.

The time history can help you identify the metrics that are using up your quota very frequently. Identifying such metrics can help you in cost optimization and get better insights into noisy or expensive applications.

January 2023

UI/UX Improvements

We’ve added some fine touches to the logs view to help you find what you’re looking for faster.

  • Default ‘flat’ mode makes the display a lot cleaner for the 1-line, 2-line, and condensed presentation modes.
  • New ‘List’ presentation mode presents log data in an easy-to-read list of key-value pairs.
  • Object columns can now be filtered to display a subset of the fields contained within the object.
