Resolved Issues:

  • When editing accounts, the credential's default region was erroneously reset to WestUS
  • In some cases, CycleCloud requested Azure metrics for an interval that was too large and got errors

  • Certain VM errors were incorrectly classified as a VM error rather than a no-spot-capacity indicator
