API/Dashboard Updates

Deployed Today:

  • Tags are now being correctly put on cloud messages so that you can filter them on the dashboard. (Older messages need to be updated to have this correct. That’ll be later in the week.)
  • MSISDN for SIM cards is now viewable in API for those who need that information
  • No more silently cutting off long shipping addresses in the store
  • Tweak the timing on SIM activations to speed up the process

Deployed today:

  • Fixed issue that was preventing using HTTP Basic Auth with an API key. (You can do this by sending a username of apikey and then putting the key in the password)
  • Optimization that should speed up dashboard loading
  • SMS messages sent to a device without a “from” number specified will now have a special from number that goes back to our servers. All SMS sent to this number will end up in your data logs. This will allow devices to reply to SMS sent from the dashboard and actually be able to see the reply on the dashboard.

Deployed yesterday:

  • Significant performance improvement for listing devices. Customers with large numbers of devices should see their device list load much faster.
  • CSR messages that come in through the API will now be tagged with _RESTAPI_

Deployed today:

  • All older messages in data logs should now be properly tagged for filtering
  • Improvements to ordering system should allow for things to get processed faster
  • Better logging so we can debug your problems quicker!

Not exactly an API or Dashboard update, but we stuck a bunch of example code up on our github at GitHub - HologramEducation/hologram-dash-arduino-examples: Example Arduino IDE sketches for use with Arduino IDE and the Hologram Dash and Hologram Dash Pro (and similar) boards
Let us know if you have any questions or comments on that stuff.

Spacebridge v0.3 was released today. This version is more secure and eliminates some error messages people were seeing. It also allows for the use of pre-generated SSH keys for authentication. Run with --help for more information.

Also, seeing now that I haven’t posted on here in a while. We have deployed some bug fixes to various services over the last few weeks along with more improvements to the dashboard. Some more big changes are in the works and will be coming out soon.

Some awesome stuff was released today:
