Direct Data Distribution from the Google BigQuery Data Warehouse

Automated Data Distribution can now load data directly from your Google BigQuery cloud data warehouse into one or multiple GoodData projects. With the provided tooling, you can simply connect GoodData to your Google BigQuery project, prepare tables and views that you want to use for reporting, generate a logical data model in your workspace, and configure data load and distribution frequency.

That's it! Starting today, you can use your Google BigQuery data and accelerate analytics for all your users.

Organize Your Data Catalog in Analytical Designer

To help users find related items in Analytical Designer and group these visually, administrators can organize measures and attributes into groups.

Use the ADCatalogGrouping platform setting to group items by:

  • Folders which enables localization for the group names, or
  • Tags which enables you to have one item in multiple groups.

By default, the platform setting is set to Disabled and users will not see any changes in their Data Catalog.

Life Cycle Management: Release, Provisioning, Rollout Bricks Available

If you are managing projects via Life Cycle Management, you can now deploy and schedule the following bricks in addition to already available Users brick and User Filters brick:

  • Release brick, which creates master workspaces for segments based on a predefined template (see Release Brick)
  • Provisioning brick, which creates clients' workspaces under the appropriate segments, and deploys the reports, dashboards, filters, logical data model, ETL, and metadata from the master workspace to the clients' workspaces within a segment (see Provisioning Brick)
  • Rollout brick, which synchronizes a segment's master workspace and its clients' workspaces: the changes that you made in a master workspace (LDM, ETL, dashboards, and so on) are propagated to all the clients' workspaces within the corresponding segment (see Rollout Brick)
