Enhancements (4)

Cloud Application Manager Platform

Kubernetes provider support for shared clusters

Cloud Application Manager now supports the Kubernetes provider type to be connected to a shared cluster where the user has access only to a limited set of namespaces. A list of allowed namespaces can be given on the provider configuration dialogue. Multiple namespaces can be specified as a comma-space separated list. The user should have the same permissions in all of them; the permissions that will be used for all namespaces will be retrieved from the first one on the list.

Application Lifecycle Management

New CloudFormation types supported

Application Lifecycle Management now supports additional CloudFormation types to be used in CloudFormation template boxes. These additional types are:

  • "AWS::CloudWatch::AnomalyDetector"
  • "AWS::CodeStar::GitHubRepository"
  • "AWS::IoTEvents::DetectorModel"
  • "AWS::IoTEvents::Input".

Users can now use these new resource types in the template definition of any CloudFormation template box or update any existing template instance to use it.

Cloud Optimization and Analytics

Change in Analytics Source Data

CenturyLink has been working with our Analytics vendor to change the AWS source for billing and usage data. While CenturyLink has been consuming the Cost and Usage Report for billing, our Analytics site has been consuming data from the Detailed Billing Report. Now both systems will be using the Cost and Usage report to ensure fewer discrepancies occur between the billing capabilities of CenturyLink and the budgetary and analytical capabilities of our Analytics site.
