December 17, 2020 Release Notes
Changes and enhancements
Services that display a progress bar while provisioning will now continue polling after five minutes, but at reduced intervals. Previously, polling stopped at five minutes.
You can now access all available actions for a service from its details page. Previously, most actions were only available from the overflow menu on the service’s listing page.
We updated how user names and accounts appear in the portal. The new format takes up less space, making it easier to read on smaller screens.
Our excellent UI/UX designer (Andrew Gormley) has once again refreshed the look and feel of the main website:
But most importantly, this moves the documentation links to a top-level menu item:
- Users were unable to select a destination port when creating point-to-point connections.
- An exception was being thrown when users create Google and Azure hosted cloud connections.
- Several regressions were occurring when creating dedicated cloud connections.
exception database_error: operator does not exist: integer = integererror when returning customer locations via the API.
- A regression in which incorrect location data was being returned when returning marketplace services.
/v2/locations/cloudAPI endpoint was missing some fields.
- Marketplace filters not working correctly.
- Unable to fully delete stuck AWS connections.
- Point-to-point statuses were being incorrectly returned.
- Removed the option to request an outbound cross connect from a LAG interface.
- Inconsistent IX providers were listed depending on how the user navigated to the IX connection creation page.
- When a user attempted to delete a port within term, the action would silently fail. We’ve corrected this by adding an error message informing them why it is failing.
- Search field on the point-to-point connections page stopped working.
- The progress bar was not automatically appearing when de-provisioning a point-to-point connection.
- Incorrect links listed in the Active VCs table on port details pages.
