Time is running out!
For customers who have not upgraded to Nastel Navigator version 10 and are still running AutoPilot on Demand for MQ (Apodwmq), there are multiple reasons why you will need to upgrade.
First, Internet Explorer is being removed from many corporations, since it is has reached end-of-life per Microsoft. Nastel no longer supports WGS version 6, and while one version of Nastel Navigator version 10 tolerates Apodwmq, that release is approaching end-of-support. Finally, many customers are concerned about Log4j v1, which is still used by Apodwmq. Given all of these factors, we encourage all customers to get current on their Nastel components. If you need assistance, contact your Technical Account Manager or open a ticket in the support system. You can view the Nastel Navigator support matrix in the Resource Center.
The latest release of Nastel Navigator, 10.4.2, has been released. Refer to the following Resource Center articles for more information:
The main theme of this release was extending the Solace support added in 10.4.1. This has been extended across all of the Solace object types as well as actions for managing them.
Solace Message VPNs
Custom attributes have been extended across the majority of Navigator objects. If you are not familiar with custom attributes, they allow assigning your own properties to an object, such as application names, identifiers, or even thresholds. These properties can then be used to filter records in the GUI or to assist with automation and alerting.
See Setting up custom attributes in Nastel Navigator – Nastel Technologies for more details, or check out this short video example on Vimeo: Nastel Navigator X - Custom Attributes.

Popular FAQs & Articles
Using Viewlet Colors in Nastel Navigator
Viewlets in Nastel Navigator can be color coded, making it easier for users to identify what type of objects a viewlet contains. The color appears in a viewlet’s header. In the example below, manager viewlets are color coded green.
You can configure colors for viewlets as follows:
- you can specify one color to represent all viewlets of a product, or
- you can specify multiple colors so that each viewlet type is represented by a different color, or
- you can select a color to represent a single viewlet
