What’s new Pandora FMS 7.0 NG 730
New package to update release Pandora FMS 730
Among the new features of the latest Pandora FMS 730 update package, new functionalities have been incorporated such as the incorporation of heat maps, the synchronization of inventory and server plugins in the Meta Console and new calls to the Pandora FMS API.
New features and improvements
Synchronization of inventory modules in the Metaconsole
In previous updates of Pandora FMS the functionality of policy and collection deployment within the Metaconsole to the nodes or instances was included, so it was no longer necessary to create the policies and collections one by one in each node.
With Pandora FMS 730 release you will have the possibility to synchronize also the inventory modules or plugins inside the ‘Module management’ view of the Metaconsole.
New Heat Maps
With this functionality there will be available radial or circular elements which can change color depending on the data obtained by Pandora FMS agent. This functionality would be useful for example to make heat maps of the data obtained from the monitoring of temperature sensors. This new application is called Color Cloud in Pandora FMS and it is available through visual consoles both from nodes and the Metaconsole.
Recursiveness in groups to launch event alerts
From release 730 onwards, it will be possible to apply recursion over groups when configuring event alerts,facilitating work in environments with hierarchies of groups.
In this release of Pandora FMS 730, new solutions have been created to increase the usability and performance of the API:
- Get a group ID from the name

- Get the language configured in Pandora FMS
- Get the configured session time in Pandora FMS
