Release Notes

The R2020-12 Studio monthly release contains the following new features.

Big Data: new features

Feature

Description

Support of Databricks 6.4 Databricks 6.4 is now supported on AWS.
Key pair authentication for Snowflake components in Spark Batch Jobs The following Snowflake components now support key pair authentication method:
  • tSnowflakeInput
  • tSnowflakeOutput
  • tSnowflakeConfiguration
To use the key pair authentication method, you must set the key pair authentication data in the Basic settings view of the tSetKeystore component.
New option to choose between RDD and DS

In 7.3, you can now choose whether you want to use DS (Dataset) or not when running Spark Batch Jobs.

Following the APIs migration of components from RDD (Resilient Distributed Dataset) to DS, some behavioral differences may appear in your Jobs depending on the API used by the components. This new option allows you to ensure the backwards compatibility between Jobs created before 7.3 and Jobs created in 7.3, and also to avoid errors with ISO configurations due to behavioral differences between RDD and DS.
Note: Newly created Jobs in 7.3 use DS and imported Jobs from 7.3 or earlier use RDD by default.
