Enhancementsedit

Update UI to support removing optional data tier Allows users to disable optional data tiers.

Display CPU when creating a deployment. The UI now displays the amount of available CPU for each instance when you create a deployment.

Display frozen tier statistics. Update the display of frozen data nodes on the overview page. We were previously displaying normal disk allocation values, but those aren’t applicable because of searchable object storage. So, we now display the usage of that searchable object storage, and then the actual node size.

Allow Kibana xpack.discoverEnhanced.actions.exploreDataInContextMenu.enabled. Beginning in stack version 7.13, support is added in Elasticsearch Service for the Kibana configuration option xpack.discoverEnhanced.actions.exploreDataInContextMenu.enabled.

Allow xpack.reporting.roles.enabled. Beginning in stack version 7.13, support is added in Elasticsearch Service for the Kibana configuration option xpack.reporting.roles.enabled.

Remove NodeAttributeValidation from plan prerequisite validation. Remove plan validation which rejects plans that remove node attributes. This allows users to remove optional data tiers through the API.

Separate billing summary from history. Billing information is separated into two pages: Overview and Billing history.

Allow configuration option setup.template.append_fields Support is added for APM Servers versions >= 7.70 for setup.template.append_fields, a list of fields to be added to the Elasticsearch template and Kibana index pattern.

Bug fixesedit

Fix crashes in the deployment template view when the monitoring deployment can’t be found. When a deployment template included observability configuration, the deployment template view would incorrectly search for the referenced deployment by cluster ID, not deployment ID. When this failed to match any deployments the entire page would fail. We now correctly search by deployment ID, and show a relevant error when no deployment is found.

Fix frozen storage values. Fixes a bug where the proper values for frozen storage were not shown in the summary footer on the deployment edit page, and in the architecture summary bar.

Fix App Search to Enterprise Search upgrades. Fixes a bug that would prevent users from migrating App Search deployments to Enterprise Search for versions >= 7.10.0.

Filter out searchable snapshots on SLM deployments only. This fix filters out searchable snapshots in snapshot lists for SLM deployments only, as they are incomplete snapshots that should not be restored from.

Remove an allocator in adminconsole when the allocator role is removed from the host.

Fix corrupt OOM heap dumps. Fixes an issue where heap dumps are sometimes corrupt when uploaded to snapshot storage.

Docsedit

Traffic filters are not compatible with monitoring due to Metricbeat. Updated the documentation to indicate that traffic filtering is not compatible with monitoring.

Add Python scenario to the docs. Added a usage scenario for ingesting, searching, and updating data in a Python application.

Update AWS hardware reference. Updated the AWS hardware reference to reflect our current usage of m5d and r5d instances, removing stale references to m5 and r4 instances.
