Connect 2020.1 Release Notes
|Release Note Product Versions|
|2020.1||March 13, 2020||Major|
Connect now displays how analytic workflows are organised in Collections in Server. To view the Collections based on their owner, go to Analytic Workflows > Gallery servers > Collection owners. There you can see the workflows which are part of this Collection. In the detailed view of a workflow you can see the list of Collections where the workflow occurs. A workflow can be part of many Collections.
Connect folders can show only content from its own subfolders. With this feature, you can list the content with a common attribute to one location by saving a specific filter as a new kind of folder. To access the Virtual folders, go to Homepage > Virtual Folders.
To create a virtual folder, click the (+) button, select Virtual Folder as an entry type, and select Create. To specify what should be displayed in the virtual folder, you have to add a query in the Lucene query field. Optionally, you have the possibility to change the Entry display type and set custom icons.
Tip: You can get this filter in Advanced Search. Specify the filter by selecting appropriate fields, enable the View query toggle and click the Click to copy query to clipboard button to copy the query to clipboard.
Attachment Restrictions by File Type
A file type can now be checked not only based on the extension but also against the actual file content. To set up this feature, go to Administration > Connect Configuration > Instance Settings > Accepted upload file types. Check the box Enable File Type Filtering Based on File Content.
Power BI On-Premises Loader
In addition to Power BI (cloud service) loader we are adding Power BI On-Premises loader. Folders, reports, and lineage to data sources are available.
SQL Server Deployment
Feature allowing deployment on Microsoft SQL Server Database was implemented. At the moment, we recommend using this feature for experimental purposes only.
Embedded H2 Database Upgraded for Better Performance
Upgrade of the embedded H2 database to the latest version was implemented to get improved performance. The main benefits include improved garbage collector and multithreading support. Note that this improvement release of embedded database will tend to consume more disc and RAM resources. Therefore, we do recommend making sure you have sufficient memory. The recommended minimum of RAM is 12GB.
Log rotation was implemented - catalina log now rotates and persists after service restart.
