Changelog

New updates & improvements to Clarify.

MQTT Broker

After weeks of testing, we are happy to announce that our MQTT Broker interface is available to all customers. You can now connect any device or software with MQTT support to Clarify in order to start logging and visualizing data. Head on over to our documentation to get started!

Clarify now provides an MQTT Broker interface.

Sparkplug B

With the release of our MQTT Broker interface also comes support for Sparkplug B. Compatible devices can now stream both data and meta-data directly into Clarify, significantly reducing the time and effort required to get started.

Sparkplug B support makes it easier than ever to add data to Clarify.

Go SDK

We just launched our new Golang SDK. Currently it only supports writing data to Clarify, but support for querying data is coming as well! Read more about it in our documentation or check out the Github repository.

Other fixes and improvements

Headers in the admin panel

When using the admin panel in Clarify there are some guides from our documentation that can be handy. We have now updated the headers in the admin panel to show relevant information, including links to documentation for the different menus. This means you can easily find guides for integration, item management and more when you need it the most.

Headers contains a short explanation, as well as links to documentation.

More space for labels

We have heard from some of you that you have more labels than our item cards are able to show, and now we've fixed that. Labels shown on item cards will now be shown over multiple lines, allowing for larger label structures than before without losing sight of them!

More labels on item cards

New front page for our documentation

Our documentation pages are growing a lot these days and to make it easier to navigate, we've completely redesigned the front-page to help you navigate it. If you are just getting started with Clarify, make sure you check out our user guides.

Other fixes and improvements

  • Favourite timelines on Android
  • Improved touch support for web app
  • Fixed missing translations
  • Added a button to delete created datasets
  • Admin panel drop-down menu has gotten a UI overhaul
  • Bulk-editing labels now support assigning new categories

Bulk operations

Ever wanted to add a label to multiple items, or wanted to fix a typo in the item name across twenty different items? Now you can! Simply select the items you want to edit, then choose one or even multiple operations to apply.

Updated documentation

We've been working on our documentation pages for a while and we're happy to announce that they have now been officially released. Over the next weeks we'll be adding more content, updating the front-page with a fresh look and overall adding lots of nice improvements. Head on over to https://docs.clarify.io to check them out!

API authentication

We've heard from some of you that supporting OAuth 2.0 client credentials in your integrations isn't always easy or even possible. That's why we've added the option to choose from either OAuth 2.0 or Basic authentication when connecting with our APIs. You can also have multiple credentials per integration now, making it possible to roll over credentials without any downtime.

Time shift

Often when we're working with time-series data, we want to see how we are doing compared to some earlier time period. Time shift allows you to do just that. This feature has been long awaited and we're super happy to announce that time shift is now available for everyone!

Create custom datasets

Note: this feature is only available to customers on the business plan

Want to share data with another organization? You can do so now in an easy to use, safe and transparent way using Clarify datasets. Simply create a dataset from the admin panel, then choose the organization you want to share it with. You can add or remove items, or even revoke the dataset entirely at any time, giving you full control of who can access your data.

Improved UI for visualizations

We've improved how a visualizations menu is shown in the timeline view. It's now easier to find the button to open the menu, as well as seeing if a visualization has a name or not.

Threshold menu

The menu for configuring thresholds used to be available on both items and visualizations. This could lead to some confusing situations as there was no clear way to distinguish them on the graph. Now the setting is only available on visualizations, and the design of the settings menu has been improved to make it easier to set color and name.

Quick navigation in timelines

This feature was added a while back but hasn't been properly announced until now. For longer timelines, it can sometimes be hard to navigate vertically. Now, instead of scrolling through the timeline, you can open the right-hand navigation menu and click the name of a visualization to jump to it. The timeline will scroll to the correct position and even flash the name of the visualization you clicked to make it easy to spot!
