This functionality will be made available following the completion of the 2023.10 rollout in all regions.

Applications: More granular permissions

Campaigns: Use parameters in manual campaigns

Deflect support tickets with faster and more consistent notifications for scenarios such as announcing system outages. Now, configure parameters for manual campaigns in addition to API campaigns, and specify the values for each parameter after selecting employees to target with an NQL query. The system substitutes the parameter values in the message shown to employees and associates them with user responses for later analysis. Refer to the Types of campaigns documentation for more information.

Investigations: Import and export individual investigations

Share investigations more easily using the standard import/export functionality for Infinity investigations. This becomes particularly useful when managing several Nexthink environments, allowing you to replicate individual investigations in each environment without having to manually recreate them. Refer to the Managing Investigations documentation for more information.

Extended virtualization fields

Improve your MTTR with additional virtualization fields that enable a smoother handoff to virtualization experts, and provide clarity to non-experts about the difference between hardware virtualization and desktop brokers. Refer to the NQL data model to learn more about two new device properties, desktop broker and environment name, which are now a part of the data model.

View domains enforced at the user level

Ensure users see only the data they are permitted to. View domain is now enforced on the User table and on events linked to users. Refer to the View domain documentation for more information.

Refer to the Amplify documentation for more information.

Amplify is subject to an additional license, please contact your Nexthink representative for more information.

Campaigns: Target employees over a longer timeframe of events

Refer to the Creating campaigns documentation for more information.

Binary profiling: New standard action menu

Save time and effort troubleshooting issues with a new contextual action menu to drill down on objects or events. This enhancement helps you further explore information related to a specific binary, for example, to perform investigations into CPU usage or crashes. Refer to the Binary profiling documentation for more information.

Applications: Access dashboards from the search bar

Find application dashboards and configurations more easily by searching for them directly with the global search option in the main menu.
