Early Adopter Release features

New features are introduced in an Early Adopter Release phase on an opt-in basis. Early Adopter Release features are publicly available, fully supported, production-ready, and available as a user opt-in. Early Adopter Release features consume licensing units in exactly the same way that GA features consume licensing units.

The following Early Adopter Release features are currently available:

OneAgent Early Adopter Releases

New features are introduced as Early Adopter Releases on an opt-in basis. Early Adopter Releases are fully supported, production-ready, and available as a user opt-in. OneAgent Early Adopter Release features consume licensing units in exactly the same way that GA features consume licensing units.

A OneAgent Early Adopter Release can be enabled either for the entire environment or within a few process groups for testing purposes. Each feature specifies a minimum OneAgent version. An Early Adopter Release can only be activated for OneAgents that satisfy the minimum version requirement. Some Early Adopter Releases also require a process restart before becoming operational.

Enable/disable Early Adopter Releases

  1. Go to Settings > Server-side services > Deep monitoring.
  2. Expand OneAgent Early Adopter Releases.
  3. To enable or disable a feature, use the corresponding switch.
