Array 1.35.0: Introducing SAML, world map view and new plugins
PostHog 1.35.0 introduces audit logs and a brand new world map view to help you visualize where your users are coming from. Additionally, we now support organization-level SAML login on both Cloud and Self-Hosted instances. Plus, check out your project homepage for a few additional goodies!
We've also recently launched a new newsletter, which we send once every two weeks! Subscribe today to hear about our latest news, what we're reading and how to get the most out of PostHog. Each issue also includes a bonus hedgehog cartoon!
IMPORTANT! If you use SAML, please read our deprecation notices below.
Wondering how to upgrade a self-hosted instance? Check out our upgrade guide.
Ever wondered who deleted that feature flag, or merged those two people? Wonder no more with the new activity log!
You can now view changes to feature flags and persons made in the UI and see who made them, when. Watch out for the activity log being added to more pages in future releases. Or join our community Slack and tell us where we should add it next.
A staple request of every PostHog hackathon has finally been realized, with the introduction of world map – a new Trends chart type which visualizes breakdowns by country (based on GeoIP data). Intuitively compare how your traffic and usage differ across countries of the world!
SAML has been a big focus point in this update (check the deprecation notices below for more info) and the upshot is that you can now configure SAML login on both self-hosted and PostHog Cloud instances!
You can configure up to one SAML provider per organization, but check out our SSO docs for more information on how to get started with SAML on PostHog.
IMPORTANT! If you use SAML please read our deprecation notices below. SAML support is only available on Enterprise plans.
In the last update, we introduced project homepages to help you find information quickly. Now, we've made them even better!
We've added a new homepage card which lists your recently viewed insights to the project homepage, as well as lists of recent recordings and newly identified persons. All of this is to help give you quick access to commonly-visited pages and recent insights.
We're big fans of the Avo data governance platform and were lucky enough to meet the team in person at our recent Iceland offsite. Now, we've launched a new plugin too!
The plugin sends event schemas to the Avo Inspector as they are ingested by PostHog, enabling you to detect inconsistencies in your schema without sharing any user data. Install it from the plugin tab to get started, or find out more in Avo's documentation.
Version 1.35.0 also adds hundreds of other fixes and improvements, including...
- New: Warnings before leaving an insight with unsaved changes
- New: Page titles that fully reflect your place in the PostHog app
- New: "Out-of-band" events shown in session recordings
- From PostHog 1.35.0 onwards, SAML will change from being instance-based to domain-based. This means that SAML configurations will take place in the PostHog UI. You will be able to have multiple SAML providers on the same instance (segment by domain, from the user's email address). Please review our SSO docs for more details.
- If you use SAML on a self-hosted instance and have enabled SAML enforcement (previously
SAML_ENFORCEDenvironment variable) then this environment configuration has been deprecated too. You will now need to configure SSO enforcement via Authentication domains. Check the SSO docs for more details.
