Release Overview:

 

Automatic Resizing of Table Columns in Analytical Designer

Pivot tables in Analytical Designer (and also on KPI Dashboards) now automatically resize the visible columns to fit their content. Whenever you open an insight or make a change, the table adjusts the width of the columns.

By default, the auto-resize feature is enabled. To disable it, set the enableTableColumnsAutoResizing platform setting to false.

NOTE: The autoresizing feature was released in GoodData.UI Version 7.4 on March 26, 2020.

 

Enhancements in CSV Uploader

We have improved CSV Uploader, a platform component that lets you add data from a file without affecting the rest of the data in your project.

  • Date formats
    CSV Uploader now recognized more date formats in uploaded files.
    In addition to the already supported formats, you can now have dates in your file in the following formats:
    • dd-MMM-yyyy (for example, 18-Aug-2014)
    • MMM-dd-yyyy (for example, Aug-18-2014)
    • yyyy-MMM-dd (for example, 2014-Aug-18)
    • MMM dd, yyyy (for example, Aug 18, 2014)
       
  • Data type for facts
    When CSV Uploader detects measurable data in the uploaded file, it converts it to facts. The data type for the facts is now set to DECIMAL(15,3). The numbers with a greater scale are truncated to three decimal places and rounded up/down.
    This allows you to process much greater numbers (hundreds of billions vs. hundreds of millions).
    NOTE: This change does not affect the facts that were created before the change has been implemented. Their data type does not change.

End-of-life of GoodData Java SDK Versions 2.32.0+api1 and Older

GoodData Java SDK versions 2.32.0+api1 and older are no longer supported. They stopped working on March 30, 2020.

ACTION REQUIRED!
Check the version of GoodData Java SDK in the configuration of your application.

  • In Gradle (the command syntax may vary depending on the version you use):
      dependencies {
         ...
         compile group: 'com.gooddata', 'name': 'gdc-gooddata-java', 'version': '2.32.0+api1'
         ...
      }

     
  • In Apache Maven (the command syntax may vary depending on the version you use):
      dependencyManagement
         <dependencies>
           ...
             <dependency>
               <groupId>com.gooddata</groupId>
               <artifactId>gooddata-java</artifactId>
               <version>2.32.0+api1</version>
             </dependency>
           ...

If you are using versions 2.32.0+api1 and older, update the dependency of your Java solution to use at least version 2.33.0+api1, or ideally the newest version as mentioned in the GoodData Java SDK Release Notes.

What happens if you have not updated to the newer version?
The login function does not work. The library cannot log in to the GoodData platform and perform any requests.

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

For customers using the GoodData PGP SSO login implementation

The existing GoodData public PGP key that you use to encrypt your PGP login requests is going to expire on May 20, 2020.
We have generated a new public PGP key that you can start using immediately instead of the expiring one.

ACTION REQUIRED!
Download the new public PGP key and update the key on your side. We recommend that you do so as soon as possible.
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.

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 on June 30, 2020.

Please notice that we have set the end-of-life date, and it is June 30, 2020.

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 on June 30, 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.
