Updated enterprise features 


Permissions Setting for New Users 



Earlier this year we held a Customer Focus Group on the subject of security. Thanks to the feedback we received from customers and partners, we’ve made some changes to how Matillion ETL handles permissions.  Enterprise customers can now choose the initial permissions group of a new user. Unless specified, a new user will have restricted access to the project by default as long as the permissions have been enabled. We’ve also introduced a new Global Access group that allows users in this group to have access to everything in the project.


New / updated features and components


Changing your own password



This new feature comes straight from our Matillion user community. As a result of discussion in the Ideas Portal and our Security Customer Focus Group, internal users can now change their own passwords without relying on an Admin user. This was a highly requested feature and we’re delighted to have your feedback incorporated straight into product releases like this one. Thank you to everyone involved for taking the time to co-create the Matillion product experience with us!

Recycle Bin improvements



Thanks to another request in the Ideas Portal, you can now find the timestamp of when a job was deleted while viewing the Recycle Bin. Furthermore, a new icon has been added to place the Restore option on each job in the Recycle Bin. This will help users easily decide whether to restore a job to its original place or delete it forever. 


High Availability support for Google BigQuery



We are pleased to introduce support for HA clusters in Matillion ETL for Google BigQuery. This is a great way to keep your workflows running and avoid delays when a server goes down in production. HA will also help with balancing your workloads between various servers and, in turn, run your jobs more efficiently. 

Reach out to our support team if you’d like to get this set up on your instance.


JDBC Incremental Load for Google Big Query (New)



With this release, we added the JDBC Incremental Load component to Matillion ETL for Google BigQuery. Google BigQuery users can now easily set up a Shared Job that will incrementally load from JDBC-compliant databases.
