Edit and View Modes in LDM Modeler

To prevent unintentional edits, LDM Modeler has been updated to start in View mode when you access the logical data model (LDM) for your workspace. While in View mode, it is not possible to make any changes to the model. To make changes to the model, select Edit. Once you access Edit mode, any changes can be cancelled by selecting Cancel.

Users without the permission to edit the LDM are unable to access Edit mode and have access to only View mode.

API: /query/etlfiles Deprecated

We’ve deprecated the /query/etlfiles API endpoint and the etlfiles object type.

If you have custom code that makes calls to the /query/etlfiles endpoint or uses the etlfiles object types, remove these resources from your code.

Calls to this endpoint and use of the object type return the following error message in JSON structure:

  "error" : {
    "component" : "Apache::RESTMD::Component::Permission",
    "errorClass" : "GDC::Exception::Forbidden",
    "message" : "Invalid operation",

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 March 31, 2022, 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.

  1. Review the breaking changes in Version 8.0.
  2. 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:

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.
