IBM zSystems Integration for Observability, which is part of IBM Z AIOps portfolio, has delivered its version 6.1.0 on March 24, 2023! The doc is also available on: https://www.ibm.com/docs/en/om-integ-obs/6.1.x. This release delivers new features for the following components:
IBM Service Management Unite 1.1.10 provides new integration with z/OS Workload Interaction Navigator and Z Operational Log and Data Analytics.
Starting in 1.1.10, IBM Service Management Unite is integrated with z/OS Workload Interaction Navigator and Z Operational Log and Data Analytics. You can launch the dashboards of these two products directly from Service Management Unite performance dashboards to view more detail. For Z Operational Log and Data Analytics, you can launch two types of dashboards: the Z Data Analytics platform dashboard that is included in Z Operational Log and Data Analytics or the Splunk platform where Z Operational Log and Data Analytics is deployed. For more information, see IBM Service Management Unite integration with z/OS Workload Interaction Navigator and IBM Service Management Unite integration with Z Operational Log and Data Analytics.
When you type commands without entering required options, Z ChatOps can now prompt you with the option you must enter next as a drop-down list or lists of resources that you can select. This further simplifies your command experience. This feature supports data from System Automation, OMEGAMON, and Z Workload Scheduler. See Using auto-prompt for required options for more information.
You can now create aliases for your frequently used commands with as little as a single character. This allows you to create shortcuts for commands and improves your productivity by saving you a lot of time to type the same commands again and again. For example, you can set 1 as the alias for the workstation list status --en SAT1IWS command.
To create an alias, you can modify the config/bnz-command-alias.yaml configuration file and then run bnzsvr restart. For more information, see Configuring aliases and Using command aliases.
