Pivot Table Improvements

Manually Resize Table Columns

In Analytical Designer and KPI Dashboards (edit mode), you can now manually adjust and save the width of columns in your table insights.

Simply drag and drop the edge of the column header to a new position to adjust the width.

You can also use keyboard buttons to change the width of either all columns in a table or all columns of a one measure.

GoodData.UI Version 7.8 Available: More Resizing Options for Columns in Pivot Tables

We have released Version 7.8 of GoodData.UI, our powerful library for building analytical applications powered by GoodData.

What's new in GoodData.UI Version 7.8

  • Resize columns manually
    You can now manually set the width of columns in pivot tables to better fit the column contents. For more information, see Pivot Table -> Manual resizing.
    NOTE: This feature is also available in Analytical Designer and KPI Dashboards.

  • Configure columns to take available space
    You can now configure the currently visible columns in pivot tables to take the available screen space. For more information, see Pivot Table -> Resizing visible columns to fill up the container.
    NOTE: This feature is also available in KPI Dashboards.


Search for Objects in Your Logical Data Model

The LDM Modeler now allows you to search through the logical data model in your workspace. You can search for datasets, attributes, attribute labels, or facts.


Clicking the search bar opens the dropdown with all LDM datasets and their facts, attributes, and labels. When you start typing in the search bar, it dynamically narrows down the list and highlights the matching results as you continue typing.



Limits Applied to Inline Reports in Scheduled Emails

We introduced size limits for the reports that you share in scheduled emails as inline messages.


A report shared as an inline message can now contain up to:

  • 600 rows
  • 600 columns
  • 4000 cells in total

These limits are applied during report generation, and the report is checked against all of them. Whenever any of these limits is exceeded, the report is not generated and is not included in the scheduled email. Instead, the email will display a warning message.
If you have any other attachments configured in the scheduled email, they will not be affected and will be attached to the email.

These limits have been introduced to prevent low performance that may occur when generating big reports.

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 August 31, 2020.

Check the version of your JDBC driver.

REMINDER: Use TLS Version 1.2 or Higher Only

Support for Transport Layer Security (TLS) version 1.0 and 1.1 is deprecated and will end in one of future releases. We will announce the exact date as soon as it is set.

How will this affect you?
All modern web browsers and programming languages already support the newer versions of TLS (1.2 and higher). Unless you use obsolete software or unsupported systems, 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:

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?
When support for TLS version 1.0 and 1.1 ends, if you do not switch to a newer version of TLS, the integration with the GoodData platform will stop working.
