The What's New page provides a simplified interface for providing updates and news related to your My Oracle Support account. By default, the information is automatically updated every hour. To disable the updates or force an update, see Section 2.9.1, “Setting What's New Configuration”.
The What's New tab is divided into three main sections:
The area on the left-hand side of the page provides information about the major new features and functionality in MySQL Enterprise Monitor.
Open Support Issues provides a quick interface to the list of currently open issues with MySQL Support as identified through the My Oracle Support web site. Issues that are currently marked in the system as “Customer Working” or “Solution Offered” are also added to the main MySQL Enterprise Dashboard above the Heat Chart.
To use the Open Support Issues functionality, set your My Oracle Support credentials within MySQL Enterprise Dashboard, as explained in Section 2.8.1, “Global Settings”.
Important Product Release Announcements provides a list of news items from a Web-based news feed. The news feed contains important information, including, but not limited to:
New releases of MySQL Products, including MySQL Server and MySQL Enterprise Monitor.
End-of-life and support changes.
Urgent errors and notifications.
New (unread) items are indicated with a star icon. Unread items on the What's New page are also signified with a number in the tab title within the main Dashboard. Items are automatically marked as read when you visit the What's New page.
The announcements information is made available in two ways: through a Web connection where the information is updated at a set interval, or through information included with the MySQL Enterprise Advisor bundles.
To poll the My Oracle Support site directly, your MySQL Enterprise Service Manager must have access to the My Oracle Support website. If your MySQL Enterprise Service Manager is not directly connected to the Internet, you can set an HTTP proxy to help access the information. For more information on configuring an HTTP proxy, see Section 2.8.1, “Global Settings”.
To turn off the display of open service requests and product notifications, use the Configure What's New link on the What's New tab, as explained in Section 2.9.1, “Setting What's New Configuration”.
