New Admin Console Release

Today we've released some new features in our Admin Console to make it easier for you to manage your application.

Admin Logs: This new feature displays a record of all actions committed by the application's admins. Click on 'Admin Logs' under the 'Administration' section of the navigation bar. You can search for app configuration, version management, developer administration, and datastore changes. Just choose the desired event from the drop down and click 'Display'!

Regex Filtering in Logs: Looking for all requests that throw a certain error? Want information on all requests containing specific query arguments? Use the new regex filter on the logs page of your admin console to search for requests that contain text matching a given regular expression. Note: at most 10,000 log records are searched per request; use the Next link to search further back. The time stamp of the last record searched (not the last record matched!) is displayed to help you decide whether to search further back. If the end of the logs is reached, the Next link is not shown.

Log URLs can now be bookmarked: The logs URLs in the admin console now include an offset argument so that you can bookmark interesting pages, and send them to other admins. This also enables usage of the 'back' button on your logs pages.

We hope these changes will make it easier for you to manage your app and troubleshoot any issues you may have.
