Service

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

New Features

  • Data Governor Online now supports SSIS as a new task type. It supports SSIS package execution that allows you to bring over your existing SSIS workloads. As with Data Governor Server, this supports parameters and viewing SSIS logs within Data Governor.

  • Data Governor also supports NationBuilder as a new connection type, so just as you own your data in NationBuilder you can also easily extract, transform and import your campaign data into Data Governor. Just select NationBuilder from the list of connections in the drop down menu when you create a task.

Improvements

  • Users can run their schedules by time zones, just select a time zone when adding or editing a schedule. Users can schedule jobs to run in multiple time zones, as each schedule is time zone specific.

    On your first login you will be prompted to select a time zone, though after initial login the account will no longer change time zones automatically and it will need to be changed manually. Note, you may revert this back to your preferred time zone by editing the schedule.

  • Schedules now support Daylight Savings Time and Data Governor Online will automatically register the change in time for your schedules.

  • Schedules can run with longer time frames when running a schedule by minute increments. The previous limit of 100 minutes has now increased to 1440 minutes (24 hours). This means that rather than scheduling a task in hourly increments, you can now choose to schedule varying time frames, such as two and a half hours (150 minutes) or three hours and forty-five minutes (225 minutes).

  • There have also been stability improvements in order to provide a much smoother user experience and accurate next execution calculation.

  • Incremental configuration is preserved when editing queries.

  • Improved text consistency.

Fixes

  • Users can now view the Execution History after the first job execution and for previously run jobs.

  • JSON values are correctly interpreted during data migration, and unknown values come through as null.
