2022 updates

Collection Zones are updated regularly; this page highlights the visible changes included in updates released in 2022.


At each update, databases, infrastructure services, or shared libraries are upgraded as required to improve stability and performance or eliminate vulnerabilities. Here is the current list of shared libraries available for use in ZenPacks.


This cosmetic update removes the deprecated label above the REPORTS tab in the Collection Zone header area. The related deprecation notice is unchanged.


This release includes the addition of deprecated labels above the DASHBOARD and REPORTS tabs in the Collection Zone header area. (If your Zenoss Cloud environment was created after April 1, 2021, your Collection Zones do not include the DASHBOARD tab.)

For more information, see our deprecation notices.

Your Collection Zones will be updated during the third and fourth quarter of this year, starting this month.
