Datameer Changelog#

Datameer provides here all new features and enhancements introduced for the recent and previous Datameer releases.

April 2022#

Topic What Changed?
Projects Errors are not shown anymore when a Project name has a whitespace at the beginning or the end when typing the Project's name in.
Workbench The Inspector now shows the 'Data Origin' information for a published asset.
Data Browser Confirming bulk loading datasets from a schema into the Project prevents loading a lot of datasets by mistake.
Transformations A user now sees a note that updating a view is prohibited when editing any operation would break the updated view.
SQL Editor You can now build your SQL queries quickly based on the auto-complete functionality.
We now provide a list of all available SQL functions in the SQL Editor to optimize generating SQL queries quickly and well and use the right syntax for that.
An improved error message informs the user of duplicated column names more precisely in the SQL Editor.
SQL errors now show the correct position in the query when editing downstream SQL operations.
Uploading CSV Column headers are now recognized and specified during a CSV upload.
Finding Data A user can now search for Projects, datasets, schemas and source locations on the Datameer Home page without listing intermediate views.
Publishing A user now gets a visual indication to which schema he may (depending on the permissions) publish a view or table to during the 'Publish' workflow.
Tables are now shown with the 'table' icon and views with the 'view' icon in both the Data Browser and the Flow Area. Furthermore the inspector now shows the information whether a published asset is either a view or a table.
An improved error message now warns you when republishing a view to a suspended Snowflake warehouse.
General UI Improvements We did some design and wording improvements for dialog boxes, buttons and hints for first time users.
Performance When a query leads to a too a non-scalable response because of a too large response, the user is now informed via an error message.

March 2022#

Topic What Changed?
Sign Up When signing up the free trial, you now get more information about the sign up progress, e.g. how long it may take until the instance is spinning up.
A default warehouse must now be defined for the Datameer service account during the initial setup. The warehouse can be changed in the 'Snowflake Settings'. When selecting a warehouse from the drop-down, it is validated and throws an error, if it is suspended or a warning, if the selected warehouse size is the smallest.
The Datameer trial terms and conditions are updated.
Data Browser Uploading a CSV can be done in the Data Browser via the 'Upload CSV' button. More delimiters for the CSV upload are now supported, e.g. pipe, semicolon ..
Workbench Source or published datasets that refer to Snowflake can not be renamed. Renaming is allowed only for transformed datasets within Datameer.
UI Tables and Views are now associated with the matching icons in the Workbench UI.
SQL Editor Complex columns (ARRAYS, OBJECT; VARIANT, GEOGRAPHY) can now be viewed, imported and used in Datameer. They can now be used in the SQL Editor.
The SQL Editor provides now highlighted basic syntax (keywords/ functions/ numbers/ string literals/identifiers) with a colorblind safe palette.
Improved contextual auto-complete supports the user to write SQL queries more simple in the SQL Editor.
Common Table Expressions are now supported. Views with CTEs can now be easily combined with operation stacks and other SQL views.
Publishing Cron expressions are available again for scheduling publishing tables to Snowflake.
When investigating your publish history, the list is now displayed in descending order. The newest entry is listed first.
Troubleshooting When losing the connection to Snowflake both a yellow frame as a visual indicator and a warning message with a hint how to solve the problem are displayed.
Performance An optimized execution infrastructure allows to execute unqueued operations.
