I’m pleased to announce the release of IP Fabric® Platform 2.2. Continuing our mission of delivering more capabilities into the hands of the network engineers, this major release exposes all predefined verification checks and enables to edit them or to define your own. Each technology verification can also be added to the dashboard, which is now fully customizable.

There were many other smaller enhancements such as the ability to recalculate site boundaries without running discovery, and the ability to use multiple nested regular expressions to separate sites based on the naming convention. I especially like that site recalculation also recreates all of the documentation according to the new separation rules, so even historical documentation can be updated.
