Talend Data Catalog Application

New features and improvements

Feature Description

Manage Cloud Identity: replaced secret vault by the new cloud identity

Replaced secret vault by cloud identity.
  • The upgrade automatically migrates any existing setup configuration for Amazon AWS, Google Cloud, or Microsoft Azure from the "Manage > Secret Vault" page into "Manage > Cloud Identity".
  • The ability to use secret vault to externally store the bridge password parameter is preserved.

    Any use of the above secret vault as a URL based password parameter of a model import is automatically detected at the first (manual or scheduled) import to automatically populate the cloud identity of that model import.

  • Added support for more than one server to be created per cloud technology, for example an Azure cloud identity for East US region and another one for the West Europe region.
Added automatic cloud identity based authentication on selected import bridges where the password parameter is no longer mandatory and the authentication is based on the cloud identity:
  • Microsoft Azure Data Lake Storage
  • Microsoft Azure Blob Storage

Data Flow: new button to switch to analysis diagram when a graph is too big

Added a new button to allow jumping to the analysis diagram tab from the regular diagram tab when a graph is too big.

Glossary workflow: new email notification for overdue workflow task

Talend Data Catalog will now send email notification if the workflow status has not changed for certain duration.

Manage Metamodel: new mandatory property to be required in workflow

Added a new option Mandatory Attributes in metamodel management to allow specifying what attributes are mandatory for any custom object type.

Manage Repository: improved audit log

All server secrets are now hidden from the audit log.

Data Flow: new support for term definitions

Added support for term definitions in analysis diagram.

MQL: new MQL system attribute Object Image

Added a new MQL system attribute Object Image which can be used as a filter with EXISTS and NOT EXISTS operators.

Notable fixes

Manage Groups: the Set Global Roles operation throws a TypeError

Fixed the minor regression in Manage Groups context menu.

Fixed the Java NPE occurred during the Get Repository Statistics operation if the import server associated with a model is deleted.

Fixed the count of approvals and comments in the search index.

REST API: inherited object roles do not display

Fixed the REST API function GET/admin/grants/getObjectGrantees/{objectId} to return inherited grantees as well as direct grantees.

Manage License: the Application Administrator role is handled as consumer

Properly handled the producers/consumers distinction for the license.

Deployment: error in tenant initialization

Fixed the initialization of the new Global Administrator role.

Physical Data Model: import failed with error "User doesnot have the capability 'Metadata Viewing' on the object(s)'[[-1,0]]'"

Fixed the issue.

Fixed the issue.

Worksheets / Collections: cannot be shared with group Everyone

Collections, Worksheets and Dashboards can now be shared with the Everyone group.

Manage Metamodel: changes in custom attribute name are not reflected when the browser language is set to Japanese

Fixed the reloading of literals when making metamodel changes.

LDAP authentication: group assignments for a user disappear

Fixed a bug that overrides the LDAP distinguished name with an empty string when any property of a user was updated.

Manage Servers: wrong server version

Print the absolute file path of the patch readme file if the application failed to read it.

Added logic to log out previous user session when the same user is logging in from the same browser to avoid incrementing the number of sessions (only one session is allowed from a user and from the same browser).
