What’s new?

💎 Custom Metrics

Custom Metrics enable you to define Metrics with custom expressions to aggregate and query your data. This provides an incredibly powerful approach to defining Metrics that can capture all sorts of complex business logic. Read the docs.

🥇 LAST and FIRST aggregation functions

We are already shipping new functions for the new Custom Metrics expressions. The FIRST and LAST functions provide the first or last measurement for a given metric. Useful for metrics like temperature in IoT use cases or storage in cloud computing use cases. Read the docs.

% PERCENTILE aggregation functions

Another new function, PERCENTILE, lets you get deeper insight. It is very useful to complement the AVERAGE function and better understand the tail end of the distribution. Read the docs.

⏱️ Usage and billing UI

Easily keep track of your usage and manage your billing in the Console. Log in to the Console and go to the new Billing section.

New Storybook docs for the UI Components

You can now see Propel’s data visualization UI components in Storybook. Check it out and play around with the components in real time.

We had a packed month with platform improvements! Check out our changelog.
