What's new

New Metadata for Salesforce node

The new Metadata for Salesforce node fixes a number of issues that were present in the now superseded Data360 Metadata for Salesforce node.

For more information, see Metadata for Salesforce.

New canvas alignment features

A new Smart Guide feature has been added to the data flow designer, enabling you to easily align items on the canvas. For example, selecting and dragging a node to another node that you want to align it with will display a guide and the node will snap into place. You can align items vertically or horizontally using the Smart Guide feature.

Additionally, a new align and distribute feature has been added which allows you to uniformly distribute items in a horizontal and vertical direction on the canvas.

For more information, see Aligning nodes.

Performance improvements

The performance of the Database Metadata node has been significantly improved when working with large databases when no table filtering is used.

Other changes

  • The deprecated DrixDoc node has been removed from Data360 Analyze.
  • The Database Profiler node can now source ProfileMode, CatalogFilter, SchemaFilter and TableViewFilter properties from incoming fields.
  • RedShift external tables can now be profiled using the Database Profiler and Database Metadata nodes.
  • Holding the shift key and pressing the arrow key to move an element by one pixel has been removed, to facilitate easier alignment with the snap to grid functionality.
  • Added support for data virtuality to JDBC Metadata and JDBC Profiler nodes.
  • The documentation has been updated to include details of additional authentication options when connecting to a Microsoft SQL Server database. For more information, see Acquiring data from a database.
  • A number of third-party libraries have been updated to benefit from the latest security updates.
