Week in Review -- August 22, 2018

Updated Components

Storage

  • Added Configuration Row detail API resource

Slack Extractor

  • Fixed pagination. The extractor was only downloading 1000 records from a channel history.
    Existing configuration of the extractor needs to be re-saved to apply this fix.


New Features

  • When creating new API tokens, you can now choose Orchestrator from the Custom Access components dropdown

Minor Improvements

  • Added Incremental label to Output Mapping
  • Storage API and Manage API tokens are now generated from alphanumeric characters instead of hexadecimal
  • Added Documentation badge to component detail. Additional external documentation is available for component marked with this badge. 
  • Filter expression operators were renamed to be more intuitive

    EQ (equals) -> IN
    NE (not equal) -> NOT IN
  • It's no longer necessary to click the <-Back button when adding tasks to Orchestration. The New Task modal will reset its state and after reopening it shows the list of components. Previously, after reopening, it showed a list of configurations of the previously selected component

Storage Form Uploads Deprecation

We are deprecating rarely used Storage HTTP Form Upload. This type of upload is supported only in US KBC region and is using legacy AWS Signature Version 2. The upload can be replaced by direct S3 upload using AWS SDK or by Importer Service for POCs or smaller files. We’ll notify projects using this type of upload to help them migrate.

Restbox Component Deprecation Announcement

The time has come and the Restbox component as we know it is now being deprecated. But do not worry, its functionality will not disappear.

The Restbox component was once a great tool to collect data from various sources that were not complex enough to deserve a dedicated extractor (or writer) and shared similar processing aspects, such as decompression, audit tools, and CSV formatting. This has now been broken up into multiple separate components and processors to achieve or exceed the required functionality.

Today we have the following components to replace the Restbox component:

Detailed documentation for most of them can be found at help.keboola.com.

The Restbox component is now available in the US region only, and, as of this announcement, no new configurations can be created. The component will be supported until November 1, 2018 when it will be finally shut down. Please migrate your configurations to one of the above-mentioned components. 

If you have any trouble migrating your configurations, please do not hesitate to contact us using the support button in your project.
