Changes in System Behavior

Data type mismatches can now be written out in CSV format:

Beginning in this release, for CSV outputs mismatched values are written as regular values by default. In prior releases, mismatched values were written as null values in CSV outputs.

See Improvements to the Type System.

Ingestion:

Maximum permitted record length has been increased from 1 MB to 20 MB. For more information, see Working with JSON v2.

Split transformation:

When splitting a column based on positions, the positions no longer need to be listed in numeric order. See Changes to the Language.

Deprecated

New Known Issues

TicketDescription
TD-66185

Flatten transformation cannot handle multi-character delimiters.

Workaround: When a column of arrays is flattened using the Trifacta Photon running environment, multi-character String delimiters are not supported. As a workaround, you can create a regular expression delimiter, as in the following, which uses either left bracket or right bracket as the delimiter:

/[|]/

Release 8.8

What's New

  • You can now configure the Trifacta application to execute Trifacta Photon jobs in your VPC.
    NOTE: This feature is in Beta release.

    Feature Availability: This feature is available in
    Dataprep by Trifacta Enterprise Edition only.

    For more information, please contact  Trifacta Support.

Changes

Cancellation of jobs is temporarily disabled:

In previous releases, you could cancel in-progress jobs for flow and sampling jobs through the Trifacta application. As of this release, canceling of job types, such as sampling, transformation, and profiling jobs, is temporarily disabled.

NOTE: This change applies to all types of jobs executed across all running environments, including BigQuery. For plan runs, some jobs, such as flow tasks, may continue to completion before the plan is canceled.

Tip: For Dataflow jobs, you can still cancel them through the Dataflow interface in Google Cloud Platform.

Job cancellation may be re-enabled in the future.

Billing:

Charges for your project and user usage of  Dataprep by Trifacta are applied to your account based on the UTC (Greenwich) time zone. However, Google Marketplace tracks and reports usage based on the Pacific (U.S. West Coast) time zone, so some discrepancies in reporting have been observed.

Beginning at the end of October 2021, these discrepancies will be addressed. The daily reporting interval will be changed to start and end at midnight Pacific time to match how Google Marketplace reports. However, the usage tracking will remain based on the UTC time zone.

NOTE: During the year, UTC time may mean:

  • Pacific time zone is UTC-07:00 during daylight savings time.
  • Pacific time zone is UTC-08:00 during standard time.

vCPU usage has been tracked on an hourly basis and will be unchanged.

For more information, see Usage Page.

Import:

Improvements have been made in how double quotes are handled in CSV files during import to align  Dataprep by Trifacta with other systems that support CSV import. 

  • Example values in source CSV file:

    """My product""",In stock,"16,000",0.05

    Note that the value 16,000 must be double-quoted, since the value contains a comma, which is the field delimiter.

  • Previously, this value appeared in the Transformer page in columns as the following:

    c1c2c3c4
    """My product"""
    In stock
    "16,000"
    0.05
  • As of this version, the Trifacta application handles the values in a better manner when displaying them in the Transformer page:

    c1c2c3c4
    "My product"
    In stock
    16,000
    0.05
    • c1: Escaped values (tripe double-quotes) in the source no longer render in the application as triple double-quotes and are represented as quoted values.

    • c3: Note that the double quotes in c3 have been stripped. Leading and trailing quotes are trimmed if the quotes are balanced within a cell.

      NOTE: This change in behavior applies only to newly created imported datasets sourced from a CSV file. Existing imported datasets should not be affected. However, if a newly imported dataset is transformed by a previously existing recipe that compensated for the extra quotes in the Transformer page, the effects on output data could be unpredictable. These recipes and their steps should be reviewed.

      This change does apply to any newly imported dataset sourced from CSV and may cause the data to change. For example, if you export an older flow and import into a new workspace or project, this change in parsing behavior applies to the datasets that are newly created in the new environment. Recipes may require review upon import.

  • When results are generated in CSV, output files should continue to reflect the formatting of the source data before import. See above.

    Tip: You can also choose the Include quotes option when creating a CSV output.

    • When profiling is enabled, values that appear in CSV as "" are now marked as missing.


API:

  • To prevent overloading mission-critical API endpoints, rate limiting on a select set of API endpoints has been implemented in the Google Cloud. For more information, see Changes to the APIs.

Known Issues

TicketDescription
TD-63517

Unpivoting a String column preserves null values in Dataflow but converts them to empty strings in Photon. Running jobs on the different running environments generates different results.

Workaround:  After the unpivot step, you can add an Edit with formula step. Set the columns to all of the columns in the unpivot and add the following formula, which converts all missing values to null values:

if(ismissing($col),NULL(),$col)



Fixes

TicketDescription
TD-63564

Schedules created by a flow collaborator with editor access stop working if the collaborator is removed from the flow.

Collaborators with viewer access cannot create schedules.

Execution of scheduled jobs on Trifacta Photon is not supported

In conjunction with the previous change, execution of scheduled jobs is not supported on Trifacta Photon. Since Trifacta Photon jobs are now limited to 10 minutes of execution time, scheduled jobs have been automatically migrated to execution on Dataflow to provide better execution success. For more information, see Trifacta Photon Running Environment.

Deprecated

None.

Known Issues

  • TD-62190: You may not be able to view the SQL that was used to execute a job within BigQuery. This issue is due to a regression in the new BigQuery console in which job identifiers containing dashes are not supported. A ticket has been filed with Google.

Changes

Improved method of JSON import

Beginning in this release, the Trifacta application now uses the conversion service to ingest JSON files during import. This improved method of ingestion can save significant time wrangling JSON into records.

NOTE: The new method of JSON import is enabled by default but can be disabled as needed.

For more information, see Working with JSON v2.

Flows that use imported datasets created using the old method continue to work without modification.

NOTE: It is likely that support for the v1 version of JSON import is deprecated in a future release. You should switch to using the new version as soon as possible. For more information on migrating your flows and datasets to use the new version, see Working with JSON v1.

Future work on support for JSON is targeted for the v2 version only.

Optionally, you can re-enable the old version, which is useful for migrating to the new version.

Feature Availability: This feature is not available in
Dataprep by Trifacta Legacy only.

For more information on using the old version and migrating to the new version, see Working with JSON v1.

Deprecated
