What's new


New API functionality

You can now fine-tune your alerting through PowerShell. You can generate authentication tokens from within SQL Monitor and there are a range of example scripts available to help get you started.


Server permissions

A new section on the server overview screen shows you who in your organization has access to that server at each access level. You can get a summary count of users at each level, and then drill down to see details.


Estate Management

Estate management lets you monitor your estate across four new views: Installed Versions, Disk Usage, Backups, and SQL Agent Jobs. Found under the Estate tab, each provides a new way to track important metrics across large or growing estates without eating away at your time or the quality of your monitoring. Read more.


Azure SQL Database support

With full support for Azure SQL Databases, Microsoft's DBPaaS (Platform as a Service) solution, SQL Monitor comes with 14 new alerts and 36 new metrics for Azure SQL Databases out of the box, alongside custom metrics support for your more specific needs. Read more.
