LDM Modeler Enhancements
Update an Existing Dataset from a CSV File
We have added the option of updating an existing dataset when you are importing a CSV file into your logical data model (LDM).
In the file preview dialog, you can now choose from the following options:
- Create a new dataset from the CSV file (option A). This option is pre-selected by default, and the name of the dataset is generated based on the name of the CSV file. You can edit the name as you need.
Use this option when you need to create a brand new dataset in your LDM.
- Modify the structure of an existing dataset (option B). If you choose this option and select the dataset that you want to update, the structure of the dataset will be replaced with the structure of the CSV file at the file import.
Use this option when you need to update an existing dataset without the need to manually add/delete fields (facts or attributes) to/from the dataset and to update the field mapping.
Warning about Mapping Issues in a Dataset
When working on a logical data model (LDM) in the LDM Modeler, you are now warned about mapping issues in a dataset. For example, a dataset field (fact or attribute) is not mapped to a source column, or more than one field is mapped to the same source column. This helps you easily troubleshoot any mapping issues in your LDM.
Whenever there is a mapping issue in a dataset, a warning icon appears (hover over the icon to display a tooltip with additional information):
- Next to the dataset name
- In the dataset's details (the Load configuration tab), next to the field that has an issue:
REMINDER: Upgrade Your GoodData.UI to Version 8.x
Version 7.x of GoodData.UI reached its end-of-development, and it is now in maintenance mode until November 5, 2021, when it will reach its end-of-support. The versions older than Version 7.x are no longer supported.
How does it affect you?
You are affected if you are using a version of GoodData.UI older than Version 8.x.
Upgrade your GoodData.UI to Version 8.x. We recommend that you do so as soon as possible.
- Review the breaking changes in Version 8.0.
- Follow our step-by-step Migration Guide that will walk you through the migration process.
What will happen if you do not upgrade to Version 8.x?
When Version 7.x reaches its end-of-support, it will receive neither new features nor bug fixes. No technical support will be provided. Although the version will still be available for use, we do not recommend that you use it.
To learn more about how different versions of GoodData.UI go through the life cycle phases and what level of support you can expect when using a specific version, see Supported Versions.
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:
- Java: https://blogs.oracle.com/java-platform-group/jdk-8-will-use-tls-12-as-default
- Microsoft Windows: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/security/solving-tls1-problem
- Python: https://docs.python.org/3/library/ssl.html
- Ruby: https://blog.rubygems.org/2018/02/24/tls-10-and-11-deprecation-notice.html
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.
