Bug Fixes and Maintenance

Postgres JDBC Driver Update

We have updated our Postgres JDBC Driver to version 12, migrating away from version 9.6 which is now end of life. There is no breaking change here. Matillion ETL users who are connecting to Postgres databases with SSL using the DB Query component will need to remove the ssl=true configuration parameter and replace it with sslmode=require.


Add taskid to list of automatic variables

The <taskid> variable is now accessible on the Matillion canvas for job tracking and parameterization. This allows users to correlate row-level changes to the Matillion run-history-details for better observability into which jobs and transformation logic created specific changes in your dataset. This improvement was proposed and highly upvoted by the Matillion ETL community.


Allow suspension of all Matillion ETL jobs on an instance

Matillion ETL now adds the ability to pause the execution of all future jobs via the Matillion scheduler with a single click. This is helpful for disaster recovery, maintenance, or migration scenarios when changes must be made to the Matillion server in between job runs. The accompanying UI allows admins to see which jobs are currently executing, paused, or scheduled for execution once the suspension is lifted. This improvement was proposed and highly upvoted by the Matillion ETL community.


Lineage Tab Deprecation

As previously mentioned on our communications, version 1.63 of Matillion ETL formally deprecates and removes the Lineage Tab within the visual interface. Please find more information about this change and suitable alternatives here.
