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.

Files API

September, 2020
PubNub’s product team is happy to announce the release of “Files”, to upload and share files (images, videos etc.) with anyone in your app. Before this release, our customers had to build their own integration with Amazon S3 or other cloud hosting services to share files. Now, developers get this feature out-of-the-box so they can ship their product faster to market.
Files adds new functionality to your chat application, allowing your team and your users to share images, videos, and files with others. Now, when you upload a file directly into your application, it'll appear instantly in your chat. Behind the scenes, files are uploaded to an external bucket and the URL is passed to the chat application. PubNub Files messages can also contain a user-defined text portion that can be used to set a caption or placeholder text to display alongside the file. Key Features Sharing Files - users can upload files from their client apps to an external bucket and share them as links with other users in a channel. Users can then download the files locally or display them directly on their apps. Encrypting Files - users can encrypt file data before it is uploaded from the client app so files can be shared privately and are secure. This is required for HIPAA compliance in telemedicine to share patient records and images securely. Triggers for Moderation - file messages trigger before/after functions so you can easily integrate with third-party image moderation services before files are shared with other users and keep chats clean and friendly for everyone. Manage Files - customers can list files, get files and delete files from the external bucket. These operations are protected by PAM to prevent abuse.
