4.0 Release Notes
Scuba release 3.15 includes the ability to get started with Scuba on your own single node AWS instance using an Amazon Machine Image (AMI); the ability to use a non-numeric aggregation (and thus, split-by) in an actor property with a trailing window; multiple measures at the same time in number view; automatic display of a raw event property as text; relative time support in BAQL (formerly known as BQL); and numerous minor improvements and bugfixes.
Scuba release 3.15 (4.0) includes the following new features:
You can now get started with Scuba on your own single node AWS instance using an Amazon Machine Image (AMI). Contact Scuba sales for more information.
Scuba is now a data integration partner with Confluent and Segment.
You can now use a non-numeric aggregation (and thus, split-by) in an actor property with a trailing window.
Number view can now display multiple measures at the same time. Note that if you pin a number view in 3.15, the measure that displays on the board is the first measure selected. To pin a different measure, unselect the measures before it. (In 3.15.1, the measure that displays is the last measure selected.)
You can automatically display a raw event property as text.
BAQL (also known as BQL) now supports relative time (for example, "this week"). Read about BAQL in Create queries using the behavioral analytics query language.
