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