Product downloads are available within our Data360 Analyze Download section.
This Generally Available Long Term Support (LTS) maintenance release provides a number of operational and stability improvements.
CSV/Delimited Input Node
The CSV/Delimited Input node now provides a property to specify how unescaped quote characters in a record are to be handled.
The ‘UnescapedQuoteHandling’ property provides the following options:
- Error - when an unescaped quote is found the current record will error and be written to the error output (Default)
- Skip value - when an unescaped quote is found the current value will be skipped and an empty value will be output
- Stop at closing Quote - when an unescaped quote is found it is treated as a quoted value and the quote is kept, the field value ends when a closing quote is found
- Stop at Delimiter - when an unescaped quote is found it is treated as a quoted value and the quote is kept, the field value ends when the next field delimiter is found
- Back to Delimiter - when an unescaped quote is found it is treated as an unquoted value and is discarded, the field value ends when the next field delimiter is found
Modify Fields Node
You can now check the ‘Auto’ option when there is no input metadata available at the Modify Field node’s input. This allows you to configure the node to use this option without having to run the upstream node(s).
Data Profiler Node
The Data Profiler node now provides the ‘Key Field’ node that enables you to specify a field on the input whose value will be passed through to the output.
Database Metadata Node
The Database Metadata node now provides an indication whether a view, procedure, function or trigger is encrypted.
The HTTP node now provides a range of properties to allow you to configure paging and how the node handles retries for requests. See the node documentation for details.
JDBC Node Libraries
TThe JDBC Query, JDBC Execute and JDBC Store nodes now provide the DbDriverNativeLibraries and DbDriverNativeLibraryDirectories properties to enable you to specify the DB driver native libraries to load and where to load them from. See the relevant JDBC node documentation for further details.
Java Node Libraries
The Java node now provides the NativeLibraryPreloads and NativeLibraryDirectories properties to enable you to specify the native libraries (.so, .dlls) to load and where to load them from. See the Java node documentation for further details.
The representation of a Connection Point on the canvas has been modified to make it easier to identify, select and move a Connection Point.
Analyze Directory List Information
The Analyze directory displays the list of data flows (and other documents) and displays information on who & when the data flow (or node, etc) was created.
When a data flow (or another document) has been modified, the Analyze directory now displays the modified by information in the list instead of the created by information. The created by information is still available in the properties panel.
Analyze Directory List Options
You can now filter the items displayed in the Analyze directory so that only Run Property Sets are listed.
Users can now access the Analyze sample data flows without the need to import them from the application installation directory. The samples can be found in the Data360 Samples/Node Examples and /Tutorials folders.
Node Elapsed Running Time
You can now see the current elapsed running time of a node in the node’s properties panel.
Site Python Directory
The Analyze installer now creates a directory that can be used to store libraries for third-party Python packages. The directory can be found here: <site-directory>/lib/python2
This directory is now on the import search paths used by the Python node when it attempts to locate a Python module.
A package can be installed to this directory using the pip package manager, e.g:
pip install --target <site-directory>/lib/python2 <package-name>
Java Version Update
The Java JDK shipped with Data360 Analyze has been updated to Amazon Corretto 8.282.08.1.
Server Minimum System Requirements
The minimum Server hardware specification for this release has been changed. A minimum of 32GB RAM is now required:
- Web Server - 12GB
- Database server - 8GB
- Execution Server -
- Base 4GB
- Plus 2GB per core
A minimum of 4 cores is required for a server instance.
Analyze Installer Improvements
The Data360 Analyze software installer now allows you to choose a location for the temporary execution data.
The specified location must be on a different drive to the drive which contains the database.
A configuration in which both the temporary execution data and the database are in the same location, is not supported.
For a Desktop installation, the default location is within ‘Data’ directory.
