The new Dashboard's View menu includes toggle buttons that let you quickly show or hide SLAs and Anomalies in all the Dashboard tab's graphs.
You can now edit graph titles in the Dashboard by clicking the editing icon.
New icons are now available in the Dashboard metrics tree. To add a metric to a selected graph, just click its icon.
The search functionality of the Report has been enhanced and now allows you to search all columns in all the Report’s tables.
Modernized What's New tab
The Learn tab has been improved and now has a new look and a new name: What’s new.

Chaos testing with Gremlin
LoadRunner Cloud now supports the addition of Gremlin scenarios to your load test. This enables simulated attacks on your services and environments, so that you can integrate chaos and stress testing into your test runs.
For details, see Configure disruption events.
Load test distribution templates
You now have the option to save your configuration of locations, distributions, and network emulations as a template, in the Cloud tab of the load test's Load distribution page. The template can easily be used in any load test within the same project, by any member of the project.
For details, see Configure cloud load generator locations.
Extended support for runtime settings
Bulk updates of runtime settings is now supported for scripts. You can select multiple scripts and update the runtime settings for all the selected scripts at the same time.
This capability is currently only supported for Web HTTP and TruClient scripts.
For details, see Bulk runtime settings.
Automatic script labels assignment
Direct assignment of labels to scripts on upload is now supported in LoadRunner Cloud. When you highlight labels or sub-labels in the Assets > Scripts page and then upload a script, the highlighted labels are automatically assigned to the newly uploaded script.
For details, see Assign labels.
Enhanced Azure DevOps integration
The integration with Azure DevOps has been extended and now provides you with the option to run a test in detached mode.

Upgraded support for InfluxDB
