KPI Dashboards: Drill from Attributes

In Dashboards (Free, Growth) and KPI Dashboards (Enterprise), you can now configure drilling also from attributes. You can configure drilling from attributes to insights, other dashboards, or URLs.

Drilling from attributes works the same as drilling from measures: click in the insight to open the target insight/dashboard/URL. In pivot tables, click the attribute value to open the target.

Export and Import Data Pipeline

You can now export your data pipeline (a set of data pipeline bricks, LCM bricks and so on deployed and scheduled in a workspace plus the Data Source that they use) from a workspace to a JSON file. You can then import this JSON file into another workspace or save it as a backup file.


This feature helps you quickly recreate the data pipeline from one workspace in other workspaces (even in a different domain) or keep the versioning history of your pipeline configuration.

Obtain, Create, or Update Mapping in Logical Data Model via API

You can now use the API to obtain the mapping between your logical data model (LDM) and the data source (that is, how the datasets in your LDM are mapped to source tables represented by the tables in your data warehouse, the files in your cloud object storage service, or the CSV files on your computer).

You can also use the API to create or update the mapping. If an object to map is not found in the target LDM, it will be created with the specified mapping. Otherwise, it will be updated according to the submitted request.

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.
