Data Warehouse Upgrade to Vertica 8.1 Started

As we have announced earlier, we have started upgrading the Vertica software on our Data Warehouse to Version 8.1.
Completing the upgrade will take a few weeks.

The upgrade does not require any changes on your side and is being performed silently, without interrupting Data Warehouse operation. No impact on performance is expected.

We will be posting more announcements to let you know the upgrade status.


Upcoming End-of-life: JDBC Driver Version 2.7.0 through 2.7.2

On July 29, 2017, the JDBC driver version 2.7.0 through 2.7.2 will stop working.

How will this affect you?
If you are using version 2.7.0 through 2.7.2 of the JDBC driver, it will stop working on July 29, 2017. You will receive the following error message:

You are using an unsupported version of the JDBC driver. Download and install the latest version of the driver itself or CloudConnect from https://secure.gooddata.com/downloads.html.

Action needed:
Before July 29, 2017, check the version of your JDBC driver.
If your version is 2.7.0 through 2.7.2, upgrade to the latest version, 2.9.0:

  • If you are using the driver directly, download and install the latest version of the driver from the Downloads page.
  • If you are using the driver via CloudConnect, upgrade your CloudConnect to the latest version: from the menu bar, click Help -> Check for Updates.

We will post a separate announcement when the end-of-life happens for the JDBC driver version 2.7.0 through 2.7.2.

Reminder: Add Mandatory User-Agent Header to API Request

Starting from March 31, 2018, the GoodData REST API will require every API request to contain the User-Agent header. Any API request without the User-Agent header made after March 31, 2018, will be rejected.

The User-Agent header must be in the following format:
product/version (your_email@example.com)

-- product is your product name; can include your company name; must not contain spaces or slashes ( / )
-- version is your product version; must not contain spaces or slashes ( / )
-- your_email@example.com is the email of the contact person responsible for the product in your company. The email is optional if you have specified your company name in product.

Insights-Provisioner/1.0 (gd_integration_person@acme.com)

Action needed:
If you use a tool for handling API calls or a custom library for integrating with the GoodData REST API, update them to include the User-Agent header in every API request.
Although the API change is planned for the next year, we strongly recommend that you do so as soon as possible.

If you have any question, please contact GoodData Support.
