Soracom Lagoon 3 release
We are excited to announce the release of Soracom Lagoon 3. This release brings several new features to Lagoon, including variables, library panels, enhanced alerts, and enhanced permission management.
For reference, the current version of Soracom Lagoon will hereafter be referred to as Lagoon 2.
Lagoon 3 features
When creating a panel, you can now set a variable for the data source. This allows you to use a single panel (or set of panels) for multiple devices and dynamically update the panel according to which device is selected. Read more about using variables (Japanese).
If you use certain panels frequently, the library panel allows you to save and reuse them on multiple dashboards. Read more about using library panels (Japanese).
Lagoon 3 provides additional configuration options for alerts:
- Calculations and aggregated data can now be used for alerts. For example, if your device collects temperature data from two separate sensors, you can configure a panel to calculate the difference between these two temperatures, and a corresponding alert to trigger when this difference exceeds a certain value. See an example of sending a notification when the difference between two temperatures exceeds 7°C (Japanese).
- A new mute timing option lets you specify quiet hours, such as to suppress alert notifications during evening hours or on weekends. See an example of configuring mute timings to prevent notifications on Saturdays and Sundays (Japanese).
Enhanced dashboard permissions
In addition to dashboard-level permissions, permissions can now also be set on folders, which will be inherited by the dashboards in the corresponding folder. Read more about managing folder permissions (Japanese).
Other differences between Lagoon 2 and Lagoon 3
Lagoon 3 has a number of other changes, such as the types of panels available. For more information, please refer to Differences between SORACOM Lagoon 2 and SORACOM Lagoon 3 (Japanese).
Discontinuation of Lagoon 2
With this release, Lagoon 2 is now scheduled to be discontinued on May 31, 2024.
Additionally, as of April 18, 2023, users will not be able to use Lagoon 2 for new projects.
Current users of Lagoon 2 may continue to use Lagoon 2 during this time, however we recommend migrating to Lagoon 3 (below) before Lagoon 2 is discontinued in order to avoid unexpected interruption.
Migrating from Lagoon 2 to Lagoon 3
For current users of Lagoon 2, a copy of your Lagoon 2 data has been automatically migrated to Lagoon 3 as of April 17, 2023, 09:00 (UTC). Prior to the discontinuation of Lagoon 2, you may use both Lagoon 2 and Lagoon 3 in parallel. Please rest assured that during this period, you will not be double-charged for using both Lagoon 2 and Lagoon 3.
Please refer to the Migrating from Lagoon 2 to Lagoon 3 guide (Japanese) for additional details on data that was not included in the April 17 migration, and for instructions on how to manually migrate any changes you may have made in Lagoon 2 after this time.
