Introducing the Site Activity Monitor (SAM) for ShotGrid Admins :tada:

The ShotGrid Site Activity Monitor (SAM) is a place where ShotGrid Administrators can visit to see high-level activity on ShotGrid sites and gain insight for troubleshooting.

There are several ways in which the Site Activity Monitor can be used, including:

  • Troubleshooting: gain insight around incidents that occur (a ShotGrid site is down or operating with an impact on performance)
  • API script efficiency: dig into script activity to help optimize API scripts
  • Onboarding: ensure the level of activity is expected while inviting and enabling new users and API scripts to ShotGrid

Introducing the User Status Diagnostic Tool for Admins :tada: :tada:

Sometimes synchronization between Autodesk systems and ShotGrid may arise with user statuses which can present discrepancies in user statuses. The ShotGrid User Status Diagnostic Tool is designed to help ShotGrid site Administrators resolve these status discrepancies.
