New features and improvements

Feature Description
Multi-model databases: improved the display in the stitching report The display of objects in the stitching report has been improved for the multi-model databases.
REST-API: added documentation about case sensitivity MQL is case-insensitive except for attribute names used in the SELECT list or WHERE clause, and other filter values in the WHERE clause. For more information, see the Case sensitivity section in the MQL documentation.
Data store type: new attributes to improve the reporting on all data store objects Any data store root object such as a database now has two new attributes:
  • Type such as SQL Server Database
  • Version such as 11.00.3128
These attributes replace the default version with the concrete version string and require a new import of the model to be visible.
Semantic mapping: improved the semantic stitching capability when using the semantic mapping tab The comparison of models has been improved with the UI cache of models when the cache is refreshed.
LDAP authentication: login get NULL POINTER error due to timeout A Timeout parameter has been added in the LDAP configuration window.
Data mapping: improved Metadata Excel Format import when the remote harvesting agent is the default server The Excel file has been uploaded to the remote harvesting agent, if necessary.
Semantic mapping: new automatic detection capability of child semantic links (schema/table/column) by matching physical name A new automatic detection dialog has been added when dropping an object on another one if both are schemas or classifiers.

A multi-selection command has been added in the Mapping editor and Report tabs to remove multiple mappings at once.

Audit log: new audit events New audit events has been added:
  • create/delete/edit semantic type/collection/worksheet/dashboard,
  • add/remove label/semantic type to/from objects,
  • add/remove/edit certification/endorsement/warning/comment on objects.
UI internationalization The translation of the Talend Data Catalog UI has been improved in French and Japanese.
REST API: new function to update and build configuration A new REST API function PUT /operations/updateAndBuildConfiguration has been added to allow you to update and build a selected configuration.
SAML authentication: new option Signature Element A new option Signature Element has been added in the SAML server configuration window, with the following possible values: Response, Assertion, Both and Neither. This option indicates if the SAML response and assertion have to be digitally signed or not by the identity provider. The digital signature allows to verify the authenticity and integrity of the assertion.
Import and export bridges: improved bridge selection list with new display mode and search bar The selection list of bridges for model import or export has been improved.
  • You can display the bridges by tool vendor or category in the list by using the new GROUP BY option.
  • You can filter the bridge list by using the new search bar.
Worksheets: improved the content filter to show sub models The content filter option now allows you to select a sub model from a multi model when using the search or worksheet capability.
Semantic Mapping: Unable to open semantic mapping: Object (0,0) is not a repository object The attachment back end now supports older models that do not have the hash sign.

Notable fixes

Issue Description
Glossary workflow: ReferenceError: entityDetails is not defined Fixed the exception. Fixed a bug in the Browse Statistics page.
Glossary: Stewards column is empty downloading worksheets as CSV Fixed the empty Stewards column when downloading worksheets as CSV.

The #Parent# or #Children# profile attributes are no longer set to null if the parent or child has a different profile than the current object in the result set.
