Over this weekend we released a new version of Cloud Portam with enhancements to managing DocumentDB accounts and viewing Cloud Service diagnostics data. This blog post talks about the enhancements we have done.

DocumentDB Enhancements – Code Editor

Till now for editing the contents of a DocumentDB document, stored procedure, trigger and user defined function we were making use of standard HTML text area. While it worked but the experience was not so great. Furthermore you can’t really format the document properly in a text area.

In this release we are enhancing this experience considerably by including ACE code editor! ACE code editor makes it super easy for you to edit the contents of a DocumentDB document, stored procedure, trigger and user defined function right from your browser. Here’s a screenshot of how it would look like editing a stored procedure in Cloud Portam.


Cloud Service Diagnostics Enhancements – Ability to View Historical Data

We would like to thank our user Brett for suggesting this feature! When it came to viewing diagnostics data collected by your Cloud Services, Cloud Portam only allowed you to view “Live” data. There was no provision of viewing old data in a customized format.

I’m pleased to announce that with the latest release, now you can search for historical data. You can search for historical data by date/time range and then further filter by a number of additional parameters. For example, when viewing event logs data you can filter by log type, event log channel among other things.



For your convenience, we have included some pre-defined date/time ranges as well.
