Deprecation and Upcoming End-of-life: Support for TLS Version 1.0 and 1.1

Support for Transport Layer Security (TLS) version 1.0 and 1.1 is deprecated and will end on August 13, 2020.

How will this affect you?
The latest versions of the main web browsers and programming languages already support the TLS newer versions (1.2 and higher). If you use one of those latest versions, you are not affected.

You may be affected if you are using an older version of the libraries or programming languages in your tools. To verify, check the documentation for your tool:

ACTION REQUIRED!
Before August 13, 2020, make sure that all your components and integrations use TLS version 1.2 or higher.

What will happen if you do not upgrade to the newer versions?
Support for TLS version 1.0 and 1.1 will end on August 13, 2020. After that date, if you do not switch to a newer version of TLS, the integration with the GoodData platform will stop working.

REMINDER: Whitelist New IP Addresses Used for Data Loading

We deprecated the IP addresses that are currently used for loading data to your GoodData projects. These IP addresses will be in use until May 16, 2020.

We have set up a new range of IP addresses, and we will switch to using these new IP addresses on May 16, 2020. To prepare for this change, please make sure that you have whitelisted these IP addresses.

Here is how you can do this:

  1. Find out what datacenter holds your data.
  2. Check this article, and make sure that all the IP addresses listed for your datacenter (both deprecated and new ones) are whitelisted and allowed on the level of your data source.
    This will make your data sources accessible for the GoodData platform after we switch to the new IP addresses.

IMPORTANT!
Do not delete the deprecated IP addresses from your whitelist yet. They will be used for data loading until May 16, 2020.
On May 16, 2020, we will switch to the newly introduced IP addresses. After that, you can (but do not have to) delete the deprecated IP addresses from your whitelist.

What will happen if you do not whitelist the new IP addresses?
If you rely on IP whitelisting, the new IP addresses that we will start using on May 16, 2020, may be blocked on the side of your data sources unless you explicitly whitelist them. As a result, no new data will be fetched from your data sources and loaded to your GoodData projects.

 

REMINDER: Upgrade Your JDBC Driver to the Latest Version

The JDBC driver version 3.0.2 through 3.1.2 is deprecated and will stop working mid 2020. We will announce the exact date as soon as it is set.

ACTION REQUIRED!
Check the version of your JDBC driver.
If your version is 3.0.2 through 3.1.2, upgrade to the latest version, 3.5.1:

  • If you are using the driver directly, download and install the latest version of the driver from the Downloads page at https://secure.gooddata.com/downloads.html. If you are a white-labeled customer, log in to the Downloads page from your white-labeled domain: https://my.domain.com/downloads.html.
  • If you are using the driver via CloudConnect, upgrade your CloudConnect to the latest version: from the menu bar, click Help -> Check for Updates.

What will happen if you do not upgrade to the latest version?
Versions 3.0.2 through 3.1.2 of the JDBC driver will stop working mid 2020. Once this happens, if you do not upgrade to the latest version, you will start receiving 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.

REMINDER: Update the GoodData Public PGP Key in Your PGP SSO Implementation

You can also download the new PGP key from our online help here (go to Step 3) or here (go to Step 3).

What will happen if you do not update the key?
The old key will be working until May 20, 2020. After that date, if you do not update the key on your side, you will not be able to log in to the GoodData platform via SSO.
