Version 1.7 release notes

The Grafana Enterprise Metrics (GEM) team is excited to announce the release of GEM 1.7.

Features and enhancements

  • GEM’s admin-api is now compatible with Azure Blob storage. Check out the admin_client_config section of the global configuration for more details on how to set this up.
  • Two enhancements have been made to the federation frontend, a service which allows users to query multiple GEM clusters at once and combine the results. Please see Cluster query federation for more information.
    • The federation frontend service will now propagate a request’s bearer token, allowing that token to be used for authentication at its downstream targets.
    • The federation frontend service now supports TLS configuration to its downstream targets.

Upgrade considerations

Users can upgrade from GEM 1.6.2 to GEM 1.7 with no additional considerations.
