REMINDER: Upcoming Upgrade of Project Metadata Objects

Only for the customers who directly use the Visualization metadata objects using the programmatic API

We are planning to upgrade project metadata. The planned upgrade will be conducted in the following phases:

  1. Introducing a new type of the project metadata object called VisualizationObject
  2. Migrating all project metadata objects of the Visualization type to the newly created VisualizationObject type

What is the Visualization object type?
Project metadata objects of the Visualization type keep information about insights. Insights are created in Analytical Designer and can be then either used in Analytical Designer directly or added to KPI dashboards.

How can this affect you?

  • If you are using the GoodData SDKs, you will have to upgrade to the latest version of the SDK to adjust your code to the structural changes in the project metadata.
  • If you are using project metadata objects directly, you will have to use VisualizationObject in your code instead of Visualization. You will also have to use a new API to query for VisualizationObject instances.

Once we migrate all project metadata objects of the Visualization type to the VisualizationObject type, the Visualization type will no longer be available for use, and any code still using it will stop working.

When is the upgrade going to happen?
Currently, the upgrade date is set to March 10, 2018. If we need to postpone the upgrade, we will inform you about the new date in the future Release Notes.
We will be posting separate announcements with updates on the project metadata upgrade and possible action items.
