2020.8 - DataClarity What’s New and Release Notes

DATA PREPARATION

View and select filter values from the list

When adding filters, you can now preview and select a matching value from the list of distinct values in a dataset. You can still type in a value in the field.

The Display data values icon appears for a condition after you select any of the following condition types:

  • is in list
  • is not in list
  • equals
  • does not equal

Reset name for an individual column

Dataset modelers can now quickly reset names for individual columns. After you change an original column name in Data Preparation, the Reset name option appears in the column menu.

Reset name for all columns in a data source

In this release, dataset modelers can also reset all column names within a data source at once. To do so, next to a data source name, hover over More options, and then select Rename > Columns to original. Note that the new option appears in the menu if at least one column in the data source is renamed during data preparation.

Flexible branding and customization

Now you can make DataClarity completely your own with flexible code-less branding and customization of DataClarity user experiences – accommodate your own logos, backgrounds, color palettes, and images to meet any styling/branding requirement.

 

Upload a custom logo

Administrators can now configure the logo and its appearance in Access Manager, in the Settings pane, on the Look & Feel tab. By using the HTML display name field, you can define a logo label/image by specifying the respective HTML formatting. For example, you can provide the link to an image and define image size properties: <img src="https://www.yourwebsite.com/logo.png" style="width:90px;height:42px;">.

The HTML display name is applied on the following pages of the platform:

  • Login page (in the center)
  • Home page (in the upper-left corner)
  • In Storyboards and Data Preparation (toolbar and the About pages), only if the logo image is deleted from the Logo This way, the same logo source is used across all the places.

If you upload a logo image to be used in Data Preparation and Storyboards, you can control its height, top padding, and left padding.  Additionally, you can now customize the hover color for the sidebar.

Customize your links and labels

As part of a rebranding process, administrators can now configure the links and labels to personalize them with your company information. These are located in the footer of the Login page and the About dialogs of the platform.  You can perform these customizations:

  • Change the URL for the “Terms of Use” label
  • Change the URL for the “Privacy Policy” label
  • Change the text of the “Copyright” label
  • Change the URL for the “Customer Support” label

Customize the URL for the Customer Care Portal

Administrators can now configure the link of the Customer Care Portal menu option that appears in the avatar menu of the platform components and pages.

mceclip19.png

You can change the link by using the Customer Support URL field in the Branding pane of Configuration Manager.

Brand & fully customize DataClarity user experiences

Now, you can brand and fully customize the DataClarity user experiences listed below through configuration settings, CSS, and logo and background images:

  • Storyboards interface
  • Data Preparation interface
  • Home page
  • Login page
  • Account Management page

 

SYSTEM CONFIGURATION

Control audit actions to be recorded

Previously, the platform recorded all the interactions with the REST API into the audit database. For performance reasons, the list of recorded interactions has been reduced to essential and meaningful audit actions. Administrators can configure the audit actions list in the Kubernetes Dashboard.
