Analytical Designer: Show Axis Names When Slicing by Two Attributes

In column charts and bar charts, you can now display the axis name even when you slice the chart by two attributes. Previously, this option was disabled.


This feature is disabled by default. To enable it, set the enableAxisNameViewByTwoAttributes platform setting to true.

Dashboards: Improved Zooming in Geo Charts

When you hover your mouse over a geo chart map in Dashboards, you must now use the Control or Command key (based on your operating system) to zoom in/out while scrolling.

In geo charts in Analytical Designer, you can still scroll directly without pressing any key when hovering over a map.


Load Configuration Enhancements for ADD v2 from Data Warehouses

When you are mapping your LDM to objects in your data warehouse, it is now possible to load to workspaces a dataset that has multiple fields mapped to the same source column.

For example, you are now able to use an existing date column for both driving incremental loads and data analysis. You can do this by mapping the x__timestamp technical field to the same source column used by an already existing date field in your dataset.

Date Dimension Loader Enhanced

We have made the following changes to Date Dimension Loader, a component of our data preparation and distribution pipeline (for GoodData Classic, click here):

  • Performance of Date Dimension Loader has been improved to work better with multiple date dimensions and large sets of workspaces.
  • In addition to client IDs, you can now use workspace IDs to specify the workspaces where Date Dimension Loader should load the date dimensions to. This allows you to use Date Dimension Loader in cases when you do not have Life Cycle Management (LCM) deployed on your site and therefore your workspaces do not have the client IDs assigned.

GoodData.UI Version 8.9 Available: Dashboard Events and Commands, and Dashboard Component State

We have released Version 8.9 of GoodData.UI, our powerful library for building analytical applications powered by GoodData.

What's new in GoodData.UI Version 8.9

  • Dashboard events and commands
    You can now use dashboard events and commands.
    • The general dashboard events allow dashboard plugins and the application embedding the dashboards to react to changes that are made to the whole dashboard (for example, the dashboard was saved as a new one or dashboard access permissions were changed). For more information, see the DashboardEvents API.
    • The filter dashboard events allow dashboard plugins and the application embedding the dashboards to react to changes that are made to the dashboard filters. For more information, see the DashboardEvents API.
    • The filter dashboard commands allow dashboard plugins and the application embedding the dashboards to change the dashboard filters. For more information, see the DashboardCommands API.
  • Dashboard component state
    You can now access the state of the Dashboard component from outside the component. For more information, see Dashboard Component.


FINAL 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 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 and Compatibility.


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 on May 31, 2022.

How does 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:

Before May 31, 2022, 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 on May 31, 2022, if you do not switch to a newer version of TLS, the integration with the GoodData platform will stop working.
