Release Notes for Cumulocity 8.9


New functionalities & improvements

The numbers after the hash (#) refer to Zendesk numbers.

Cockpit improvements:

New: Scheduled CSV and Excel reports can now be sent via email.

  • Users can define a schedule at which CSV/Excel reports configured by the “Reports” feature in Cockpit are sent to their email address.
  • You can add schedules once your report configuration has been saved.
  • The configuration options are the same as “Send dashboard as email” smart rule.


Additional improvements:

  • The functionality of the “Save” button throughout the whole platform has been improved. [#13024]
    • The “Save/Cancel” panel appears fixed to the bottom of the screen whenever a change has occurred. This way you will no longer lose your data by navigating away from the panel without saving.


  • Connection monitoring performance has been improved.
