Service

The following changes concern the central Data Governor Online service. No explicit action needs to be taken to utilise these features.

New Features

  • MYOB Account Right connection added which can be used in Data Migrations as a source.

  • Task Parameter Defaults which allows for task parameters to have a value which is used if no value is provided when sequencing the task in a job.

Improvements

  • Jobs can now have a configurable “Log Batch Size” which when increased will improve the performance of jobs at the cost of delaying the realtime logging capabilities in the Data Governor Online application.

  • Parquet files are now a file format rather than an extension for the purposes of improving the user experience of the file definition page.

    • This change is backwards compatible with previous .parquet extensions however it’s advised that going forward the file format is used over providing an extension.
  • When creating a connection, SQL Server is no longer the default selected type and so the user must select a type before proceeding.

  • Dates in the application will now use the locale specific formatting (eg. dd/MM/yyyy for Australia and MM/dd/yyyy in the US).

  • Online Help link added to home page which will open https://docs.perspectiveilm.com in a new tab.

  • Installer will now prompt the user for the additional features they may or may not need.

  • Logs will now be returned in the UI based on their creation time rather than their position in the database, this is to ensure that any instances where logs are returned after the completion of a job are still shown in the correct order.

Fixes

  • Fixed bug where installer may fail on first time installation of an agent.

  • Fixed Standard & Debug Logging so that they are properly applied to job configurations.

  • Fixed bug where editing a query as a source migration entity in a migration with 3 or more query as a source entities would result in the ordering of the entities breaking. This would result in all migration entities being removed from the edited task.

  • Fixed bug with server not handling backslashes and encoded characters in schema requests.

Agent

Version Number: 2019.2.26.1

The following changes concern the Data Governor Agent that you install yourself. To acquire these changes you will need to update your agent.

It is highly recommended that users upgrade to this latest version as soon as possible as it includes improvements to performance and stability.

New Features

  • MYOB AccountRight Desktop support as a source in Data Migrations.

  • Incremental config now supported when using query as a source.

Improvements

  • Application logging is now submitted in batches for stability and efficiency purposes, this can be configured in the job settings under “Log Batch Size”.

Fixes

  • Fixed bug where logging level would always default to debug.

  • Fixed bug where agent would sometimes not be able to complete a task due to API connection issues.
