Release 7.5

What's New

New Flow View is now generally available:

  • Drag and drop to reposition objects on the Flow View canvas, and zoom in and out to focus on areas of development.
  • Perform joins and unions between objects on the Flow View canvas. 
  • Search for flow objects by name or by type.
  • Annotate the canvas with notes.

    Tip: The relative position of objects on the flow view canvas is preserved between screen updates. On refresh, the window on the canvas is repositioned based on the leftmost object on the canvas to focus on the flow to other objects from that one.

    NOTE: Classic Flow View is no longer available.

    See Flow View Page.

Import:

  • For long-loading relational datasets, you can monitor the ingest process through Flow View as you continue your work.

    For more information, see Flow View Page.

  • Improved performance when browsing databases for tables to import.

    Tip: Performance improvements are due to limiting the volume of table metadata that is imported when paging through available tables. This metadata can be retrieved when you hover over a table in the database browser.

    For more information, see Database Browser.

  • Logical and physical optimizations when reading from relational sources during job execution, which includes column pruning push-down among other enhancements. 

    NOTE: This feature may need to be enabled in your workspace. See Workspace Settings Page.

    This feature applies to the following relational connections in this release:

Transformer Page:

  • Collaborative suggestions allow users within a workspace to receive suggestions based on the transformations that have been recently created by themselves or by all members of the workspace. As more users generate transformations, the relevance of these suggestions to the data in the workspace continues to improve.

  • Create and edit flow parameters and their overrides while editing your recipe. See Transformer Page.


Plans:

Feature Availability: This feature is available in Trifacta Premium

  • Monitor status of all of your plan runs and drill into details. See Plan Runs Page.


Authorization:


  • Workspace administrators can now create and assign roles to govern access to types of objects in the workspace. For more information, see Changes to User Management

Changes in System Behavior

Schema information is retained:

  • When schematized datasources are ingested, schema information is now retained for publication of job results.

    NOTE: In prior releases, you may have set column data types manually because this schema information was lost during the ingest process. You may need to remove these manual steps from your recipe. For more information, see Improvements to the Type System.

Enhanced PII masking:

  • For social security numbers and credit card numbers, the methods by which these values are determined for purposes of masking sensitive Personally Identifiable Information (PII) has been expanded and improved. For more information, see Improvements to the Type System.

IP addresses to whitelist have changed:

Please verify that the following range of IP addresses have been whitelisted for the Trifacta service for access to relational datasources in your enterprise:
