Multi-Language Support for Embedded Dashboards

When provisioning users via API, you can assign a user the language that is used in embedded dashboards the user can view.

To do so, use the language parameter. This parameter accepts IETF language tags.
By default, English (en-US) is set. You can also set it to one of the following:

  • Dutch (nl-NL)
  • Spanish (es-ES)
  • Portuguese (pt-BR)
  • French (fr-FR)
  • German (de-DE)
  • Japanese (ja-JP)

Here is an example of the user's settings with the English language set for embedded dashboards:

   "accountSetting" : {
      "country" : "US",
      "firstName" : "John",
      "ssoProvider" : null,
      "timezone" : null,
      "position" : "",
      "authenticationModes" : [],
      "companyName" : "GoodData",
      "email" : "john.dow@gooddata.com",
      "created" : "2011-08-10 08:37:46",
      "updated" : "2014-04-11 01:18:07",
      "lastName" : "Dow",
      "phoneNumber" : "555544122",
      "language" : "en-US",
      "links" : {
         "self" : "/gdc/account/profile/jhhf00dff85n123",
         "projects" : "/gdc/account/profile/jhhf00dff85n123/projects"

ADS JDBC Driver 2.8.1 Available!

We have released version 2.8.1 of the ADS JDBC driver. Download it from the GoodData Developer portal.

What's new in this release?
The driver now allows you to connect to an ADS instance in an isolated domain. Isolated domains help you avoid issues with clashing user logins in different data products.

Date Filter Applied to All Dashboard Tabs

If you are navigating through the tabs on a dashboard with the same default date or dimensions, the time filter that you set up on one tab now gets applied to all the other tabs on the dashboard. This lets you review the data through the dashboard tabs in a consistent manner, filtered by the same time interval.

For dashboards with different default dates or dimensions on tabs, the time filter is applied only to the tab where you have set it. The other tabs' filter settings stay intact.

MAQL Improvement - FOR Previous 

Improvements to the FOR Previous metric now allows it to work with date granularity in order to accurately compare periods of variable length (days by year, days by month) for Period over Period reports. FOR Previous also now works correctly with custom fiscal calendars.

For example:
FOR Previous (Month/Year)
Transforms date 28.3.2016 to 28.2.2016

Reminder: Upcoming Change of SST Length

To enhance platform security, we are planning to increase the length of SuperSecured Token (SST) that you obtain and use when logging in to the GoodData platform via API.

How will this affect you?
Make sure that you parse the whole value of SST (without considering how long it is).
Always take the whole SST value from the header of the API call response, or from the cookies string.

When this change happens, we will post a separate announcement.
