Events & Actions is Now Generally Available

February, 2023
Events & Actions (E&A) is a new feature that helps capture and react to critical events generated by users and devices interacting on the PubNub platform. E&A delivers a highly scalable and cost-effective service that sifts through millions of events in real time and maps the relevant ones to a growing catalog of actions including webhooks, Amazon SQS, Amazon Kinesis. This way customers can capture critical events (e.g. important messages) and route them to third-party systems for storage, processing, data analysis, and more.

Improved DataDog Dashboards

May, 2021
At PubNub, we believe that the best improvements to our product are those based on customer feedback. That’s why we’re  launching an update to our DataDog dashboards to provide our customers with even more insightful information about their app usage. 
Here’s what’s new:
  • Summary metrics about total usage and client errors
  • Regional service usage for all 5 PubNub regions (us-east-1: Virginia, us-west-1: California, eu-central-1: Frankfurt, ap-northeast-1: Tokyo, ap-south-1: Mumbai)
  • Metrics about the percentage of error rate vs. total messages
  • Max requests-per-second (RPS) for the selected time period and respective RPS change from the same period in the previous day
  • Separated section for client errors, including error percentage of total requests and separated chat for client unauthorized requests
  • Function breakdown by inbound and outbound requests and respective errors
  • Push notification requests

Please note, DataDog dashboards are only available to customers on Platinum support plans. If you’re interested in adding them,
please contact our team.

Improved Operational Dashboards for Premium Support Customers

May, 2021
We have updated the operational dashboards provided to our Premium Support customers. Our new reports provide improved 'at-a-glance' information on usage and errors, and use a Green/Yellow/Red color coding to make it easy for operators to quickly identify possible problems. This dashboard provides new operational information on our Push Notification Service and details on errors generated by the Functions and Access Manager services, which are typically issues that customers can resolve on their own. Please contact Support for more information.

APNs1 Migration

March, 2021

Apple has announced that beginning March 31st, 2021 they are discontinuing support for the binary APl that we use to currently power our APNs1 push notifications. Instead, Apple has rolled out a more reliable, compliant HTTP/2 API to power push notifications to Apple devices.

With this release, PubNub is automatically migrating existing APNs1 customers over to our new APNs2 push notifications to comply with Apple’s announcement. There is no action needed from customers to support this migration.
