Access GoodData University through the GoodData Portal

You can now access GoodData University through the Help menu in your GoodData account.



Move Facts and Attributes between Datasets in Your Logical Data Model

In the LDM Modeler, you can now move facts and attributes between datasets of your logical data model (LDM). This can help you expand or refactor your LDM easier and faster.


When you move a fact or an attribute from one dataset to another, the identifier of the moved object does not change. This preserves the measures, reports, and dashboards where the moved object is referenced by its identifier.

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.
