Our January product updates include Azure Resource Manager support for all accounts, new audit actions available in Cloud Management, and a new server href option that simplifies the API call and/or Cloud Workflow code for managing your resources.
- Support for Azure Resource Manager is now available for all accounts:
- Cloud Management now shows the Storage Account type (Placement Group in RightScale) in the UI and the API. Additionally, tags are now synced between RightScale Deployments and Azure Resource Groups.
- The Availability Set is now an optional parameter when creating a server/instance in Azure Resource Manager.
- New Audit Entries: The following actions are now included in the audit trail in Cloud Management:
- Connecting to a cloud
- Changes to IP whitelist settings
- Creating a new child account
- Changes to SSO settings
You can find the audit trail for an account in the Audit Entries tab under Reports in your enterprise master account.
- Server href Option: You can now specify just a Server href instead of an Instance href when creating IPAddressBindings and VolumeAttachments, which simplifies the API call and/or Cloud Workflow code for managing these resources. (Note: The server must have a current_instance.)
