With the Update Security Groups action you can automate the regular cleanup of ingress and egress rules in your Security Groups to remove unwanted access patterns.

You can now toggle between VISUAL and COMPACT display options within the Rules view. Users often mentioned that Rules with multiple actions made the Rules view challenging to navigate, requiring scrolling and resulting in a disorientating experience. By allowing a toggleable display option you can easily choose whichever view you prefer and change at any point in time.

Within the Rules view any Label on a Rule is available as a clickable filter helping to reduce the view to only show Rules with selected Labels in common. This greatly improves the user experience for teams who have multiple Rules. Now users … Read More

We often hear that customers like our simple User Interface and find it very easy to configure our Rules to manage their cloud environments. However, over time, some users found that our Rules index page became hard to navigate, as they started to go from 10s to 100s of active Rules. So we decided to do something about it. Meet … Read More
We built some new stuff Firstly, we built support for a sequence of actions. You are no longer restricted to executing a single Action in your Rule. Actions could be fired off in serial.
