New MAQL Date Arithmetic Functions

In this release, we are introducing new time arithmetic functions - DATETIME_DIFF and DATETIME_ADD:

  • DATETIME_DIFF calculates the difference between two timestamps or dates.
    You can use this function, for example, to calculate the duration of your business processes.

  • DATETIME_ADD adds a specified number of intervals of timestamps or dates.
    You can use this function, for example, together with the MIN/MAX date function to derive borders of date filters from the last snapshot.

Updates & Changes

  • The scope of users who can use the API endpoint /api/v1/layout/workspaces/{workspaceId}/permissions has been changed. The only users who can use this API endpoint are users who have MANAGE permission in the organization or MANAGE hierarchyPermission in the workspace itself, or its parent workspace.

  • Updated Apache Drill driver to version 1.20.2.

  • Updated Vertica driver to version 11.1.1.

Bug Fixes

  • We have removed a redundant authentication callback after successful authentication.

  • You will now get the correct error code, 401 (Unauthorized), when you make a declarative/entities API call and your authentication token is expired.

  • Making a layout/workspaces PUT API call will no longer rewrite workspace data filters & settings.

  • Fixed an issue where when GoodData.CN Community Edition runs out of memory, the Docker service fails to restart for up to hours, causing the application to be unusable for no obvious reason. Now the Docker service will restart itself right away to resolve the issue.
