Batch Loading is Default Load Mode

CloudConnect now uses batch loading of CSV data by default. This applies to projects belonging to the tokens created after this release (January 16, 2016).
The batch loading loads data for multiple datasets in one process, which allows for faster data upload.

For backward compatibility, projects belonging to the tokens created before this release (January 16, 2016) will keep using sequential loading mode (CSV files are uploaded individually) unless you defined to use the batch loading in CloudConnect (the GDC_USE_BATCH_SLI_UPLOAD parameter set to TRUE).
If you would like to make the batch loading the default mode for the token created before January 16, 2016, contact GoodData Support.

Note that local runs in CloudConnect Designer always use the batch uploading regardless of when the token was created. That means that CloudConnect Designer version 102.0.1 and newer will always use the batch loading for local runs, and the GDC_USE_BATCH_SLI_UPLOAD parameter will be ignored. Older versions of CloudConnect Designer will respect the GDC_USE_BATCH_SLI_UPLOAD parameter and use the sequential loading by default.

Upcoming Change of Retention Period for Project Staging

We are planning to change the retention period for project staging. Currently, the retention period is 14 days. This will change to 7 days at the end of February 2016.

What can you do to get ready for this change?
Make sure that your ETL processes do not rely on the files stored on project staging for longer than 7 days.

We will publish a separate announcement once the retention period change happens.
