New Data Connector Components
New/Updated Components
  • API Profile RSD Generator
    • Accelerate the development of API Profiles using a new tool that automatically generates a basic XML “RSD descriptor” for any API endpoint, based on a sample of data returned
  • REST API Version 1 – Matillion ETL now has full API coverage:
    • You can now read/write more assets (JDBC Drivers, credentials, SQS configuration) as well as allowing finer-control of which resources to include
    • A map of the v1 API is available here
    • The “v0” api is still available and unchanged
  • External Tables based on Amazon Redshift Spectrum now support skipping header rows
Other Changes
  • Grid Variables System
    • In addition to “scalar” (single-valued) variables, you can now define grid variables to hold lists and grids of values; use them wherever a compatible list or grid of values is required
    • Grid variables can be manipulated/modified in Python
    • You can pass values for grid variables when starting a job via SQS and/or the V1 API
  • You can now disable parts of an Orchestration job
  • Improved Matching in column mappings – Many transformation component “Column Mapping” parameters can now be automatically mapped, even when the input and output column names are similar but not identical
  • You can now delete tables/views directly from the Environment tree

Important (possible breaking change)

  • API Profiles (“RSD’s”) that handle paging may need to be tweaked to disable “auto” paging. Please see here for more details
  • API profile limits are now applied. Where the default of 100 is set it will now be applied. This could affect API Query Components which previously ignored that limit
