App updates

We've improved a number of smaller details in the App. Here's a list of the changes we've made:

  • Selected columns on the Error/Performance sample pages are now persisted.
  • Alerts in the Time Detective now link to Anomaly Incidents, instead of the edit form.
  • Add log view params to the url, this allows for additional filtering on a log view, and the ability to save it as a new view.
  • The chart on the log view page now handles large timeframes. It now loads data in batches, preventing timeouts, and a broken graph.
  • Link templates for Error/Performance sample tags can now include dashes (-).
  • Expand SQL syntax highlighting to additional Event Payload bodies, such as active_record, ecto, knex, mysql, pg, sequel, psycopg2 and sql.

Long-term storage for logging

We've added a feature that allows for long-term storage of log sources. Provide an S3 bucket and credentials; we'll transfer our logs to your bucket.

AppSignal Long-term Log Storage UI

Long-term log storage is part of a suite of Business features that don't modify our core features but make administration and staying compliant more manageable.

So far, long-term log storage, enforcing two-factor authentication, and the ability to sign a Business Associate Agreement for HIPAA compliance are available. For pricing, please contact our Customer Success team.

Enforce Two-Factor Authentication

We've added a feature to enforce two-factor authentication for every member of an organization. This is part of a suite of Business features that don't modify our core features but make administration and staying compliant more manageable.

So far, enforcing two-factor authentication and the ability to sign a Business Associate Agreement for HIPAA compliance are available. For pricing, please contact our Customer Success team.

Add Ability to close Anomaly incidents

It's now possible to close Anomaly incidents manually. This can be done by clicking the "Close last occurrence" button in the actions box on the incident page.

This helps customers with an incident that isn't relevant anymore but still shows up on the list of incidents. For example, an open swap incident that has been resolved by cycling the server in a cloud environment.

Linear Integration

We've added a new integration with Linear.

Send incidents over to Linear as a new issue with a link back to the incident in AppSignal.

Upgrade of top monitoring features


  • We've spent the past few months making our top monitoring features more consistent.

    Error, Performance, Anomalies, and Logging now all share the same navigation structure with a list of incidents, graphs, logbooks, and occurrences.

    Read more about it in our blog post.

App usability improvements

  • Add "breakdown" bars in the samples table for performance samples. These help you quickly figure out if it's a single event group (queries, templates, external requests) that's causing the performance issues.
  • Show performance of action in the last five deploys
  • Revamp the performance incidents. Bring them in line with the exception incidents. Add tabs for Logbook, Sample table, Graphs and incident Summary
  • Improve N+1 detection, we'll now show multiple non-nested events repeated as a group (e.g. active record initialise and query repeated 10 times, now shows them as a group).

Date picker and filtering improvements, Golang installation flow, Markdown support for comments

  • Add ability to select times in date range picker
  • Allow searching hostnames with a dot (.) in the hostname filter on host metrics/usage pages
  • Add install flow for Golang
  • Add markdown support for logbook comments/notes
  • Update styles to be consistent with homepage/docs/blog (button colours)

Various usability enhancements

  • Make Duration formatter more accurate, instead of showing ~2 min, or ~2 hours, we now show 02:31 min, and 04:32 h.
  • The marker selection dropdown on the incident page is now persisted in the session. You don't have to select "last 30 days" on every reload anymore.
  • The exception incidents samples table now has a column select and horizontal scroll. This should help customers with lots of custom tags.
  • The exception incident message/backtraces are now updated from samples, ensuring they are consistent with the latest error message/backtrace (at most once a day).
  • Incident notifications now include a timestamp to the sample that generated the incident again, this helps debug issues with those specific attributes.
