What’s new in Hume 2.21?

· 3 min read

We are proud to announce the release of Hume version 2.21. This release introduces new features in Visualisations, Orchestra, Alerting, and more.

GraphAware Hume is an intelligence analysis solution. It represents your world as a network of interconnected entities, builds a single view of your siloed intelligence holdings, and brings powerful, user-friendly, machine-assisted link analysis capabilities to end users.

Hume 2.21 introduces:

  • alert sharing and granting access to specific alerts,
  • copy/paste item functionality between visualisations,
  • continuing your analysis from a snapshot,
  • support for Neo4j CDC,
  • the ability to integrate Orchestra workflows with Visualisation Actions using webhooks,
  • configurable date formats in Visualisations.

Access and Sharing Permissions for Specific Alerts

In this release, we are expanding access capabilities for Alerts. Alert creators and managers can now extend alerting access by granting other users VIEW or MANAGE rights to specific alerts.

Fine-grained access is an optional feature which works with global alert permissions to extend user permissions for a specific alert, allowing users and organisations more control over their alert access configurations.

Enhanced User Collaboration: Copy/Paste Items Between Visualisations and Continue Analysis from a Snapshot

Copy/Paste Items Between Visualisations

Now, you can copy & paste items between visualisations, allowing you to combine results from your analyses into one visualisation.

Continue Analysis from Snapshot

Snapshot functionality has also been expanded to allow you to collaborate and iterate on your analysis. Now, snapshot data can be opened in a new visualisation letting you share a snapshot with a colleague so that they can continue your analysis from a certain point. In addition, this feature allows you to continue your own analysis at any point in time by restoring Snapshot versions as new visualisations.

Integrate Neo4j Change Data Capture (CDC) With Hume

Hume remains at the forefront of Neo4j support and integrations. In this release we are introducing integration with the newly released Neo4j Change Data Capture (CDC) feature. CDC allows you to quickly and efficiently capture and replicate changes to your data without disruptions to your workflow.

The new Orchestra Neo4j CDC component can now be added to a workflow to capture and track every change within a Neo4j graph (deletion, creation, or update) in real-time.

Check out our dedicated CDC blog post to find out more about the significance of Neo4j CDC and Hume integration for mission-critical intelligence analytics.

Combine Orchestra Workflows with Visualisation Actions

Now, you can return custom data from a call to an Orchestra webhook, allowing you to combine Orchestra workflows with Visualisation HTTP API Actions. Workflows can now react to Action requests via Webhook messages and call an external API which returns an immediate response. This feature allows you to utilise the power of Orchestra workflows directly from Visualisation Actions and create custom integrations with external services and business logic.

Other Improvements

  • With this release it is possible to specify display formats for dates in Visualisations. Configurable display formats are important for organisations which rely on specific formats for data presentation. Accepted formats include:
    • yyyy-MM-dd (e.g. 2023-09-13)
    • dd/MMM/yyyy (e.g. 13/SEP/2023)
    • dd/MM/yyyy (e.g. 13/09/2023)
    • dd-MM-yyyy (e.g. 13-09-2023)
  • Now, it is possible to specify on which Orchestra cluster instance a specific workflow has to be executed. As part of this improvement, a Properties panel has been added to the Orchestra UI. Here, you can specify assignment tags for a workflow, assigning it to a specific cluster member. This ensures that every time you run a tagged workflow, the corresponding workflows will run in the connected instances.
  • 2.21.0 introduces the possibility to use SendGrid as a notification provider in the Alerting controller.
