TicketDescription
TD-48630

Connection files used by the data service are not persisted in a Dockerized environment.

Tip

Workaround: In the Admin Settings page, set data-service.vendor to a location that is persisted. Example value:

Code Block
(Path-to-persistent-directory)/conf/data-service/application.properties
TD-47696

Platform appears to fail to restart properly through Admin Settings page due to longer restarts of individual services. Symptoms:

  • Changes to settings may appear to have not been applied.
  • Admin Settings page appears to be stuck restarting.
Tip

Workaround: Restart can take up to several minutes. If the restart does not appear to complete, try reloading the page. If that doesn't work, restarting from the command line is more reliable. See Start and Stop the Platform.

Steps:

  1. D s config
  2. Locate the following property:

    Code Block
    "artifact-storage-service.classpath"
  3. Replace this value:

    Code Block
    :%(topOfTree)s/%(hadoopBundleJar)s
  4. With the following:

    Code Block

  5. Save changes and restart the platform.
TD-45122

API: re-running job using only the wrangleDataset identifier fails even if the original job succeeds when writeSettings were specified.

Tip

Workaround: Use a full jobGroups job specification each time that you run a job.

See API JobGroups Create v4.

TD-44429

Cannot publish outputs to relational targets, receiving Encountered error while processing stream.

Tip

Workaround: This issue may be caused by the trifacta service account not having write and execute permissions to the /tmp directory on the

D s node
.

If so, you can do either of the following:

  1. Enable write and execute permissions for the account on /tmp.
  2. Create a new temporary account and provide the service account write and execute permissions to it. Then, add the following to data-service.jvmOptions:

    Code Block
    -Dorg.xerial.snappy.tempdir=/new/directory/with/writeexecuteaccess
