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.

Delayed orchestrator in EU region

[13.07.2018 10:45 CET]

We're currently investigating delayed orchestrator launches in EU region. 

[13.07.2018 11:13 CET]

There was a problem with one of our nodes that delayed and in some cases even made it impossible to launch orchestrations. All affected customers are now moved to a new node and orchestrator operates normally. We're monitoring the performance of other nodes to make sure everything works. 

We also notices somewhat similar behavior in one of the nodes in US region. We retired the node as well as a preventive measure. So far we have no information of any customer impacted by this issue in US region. 

New version of Sklik Extractor

Our Sklik Extractor gets a new version updated to use Sklik API version Drak. It allows you to download data about any resource supporting methods createReport and readReport (see Seznam's blog post for more information). 

The new API uses different logic for structuring the data so unfortunately, we can't offer automatic migration. See extractor's documentation for more information about its configuration.

The old extractor is deprecated and will be shut down by the end of August.
