Error when saving configuration Post-Mortem

Some of our users experienced errors in Keboola Connection (in both regions) yesterday when saving configurations of several components.

An error was displayed to users who tried to save their configuration between Jul 9, 2019, 12:35 CET and Jul 10, 2019, 14:18 CET.

Mainly users who have an older version of Chrome Browser or any version of the Firefox browser were affected.

The issue was caused by wrong response headers (unsupported by the mentioned browsers) being sent to a preflight request on one of our API services.

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience caused.

Navigation Moved and Redesigned

Three weeks ago we announced the start of Keboola Connection redesign.

We're glad we can share another important update with you.

We moved the navigation from the left side to the top

This allows you to more quickly navigate within a project and should improve user experience. All sections remain the same and the content hasn't changed.

  • Project Settings can be found on the right side (by clicking on the "cogs")

  • The Project Selector is almost the same as before

  • The User Settings menu has a new home on the top right side

  • Also, we added a shortcut to the Trash, so you no longer need to navigate there through User & Settings


We hope you'll like this update as much as we do.

Support system unavailable

Zendesk is down, so our support system is inaccessible. Keboola Connection is unaffected, but if you run into anything critical, please reach us via email.

We'll update this post when we obtain more information.

Update 14:36 UTC - Looks like things are back to normal now.

New Features and Improvements

There's a new option in organization-level settings which allows you to require Multi-Factor Authentication for each member of your organization and project.

Set same data type to all columns at once

When setting data types in transformation's Input Mapping you can set same data type to all columns at once.

GoodData Writer data types

When configuring tables in GoodData writer, we try to look for metadata for columns and set types for you automatically.

Deprecation of GoodData Writer v2

The old version of GoodData Writer (v2) was already unpublished a few months ago and does not allow you to create new configurations since then. Now the time has come to deprecate the component entirely and set a date for its final shut down. 

The date is September 31, 2019, so you are encouraged to migrate old configurations until then. The ui shows a deprecation notice and offers you to run the migration process.

Week in Review -- June 21, 2019

New Features

  • You can now schedule orchestrations by table events.  Do you want to run an orchestration as soon as a key table gets updated?  You can do that now!  Please refer to the documentation to help guide you through it.


  • When creating a new token you can now restrict its access to the configuration trash bin

Improvements

Transformations

  • Transformations can now be copied to the same bucket or an other transformation bucket

  • Simplified version diffs for scripts


  • You will now be given a warning if you cannot extend your sandbox because of required system upgrades


Orchestrations

  • For notifications, you can now choose from any email of any user that has previously worked on the orchestration or of course enter one of your choosing

  • On the orchestrations listing page it will show if the orchestrations were manually triggered, event triggered, or scheduled


SQL Server extractor

  • Allows incremental fetching by timestamp data type columns

  • A new option to disable use of the fallback driver on failure

Developers

  • We are now always displaying the documentation link for components, so please make sure that your components have it filled in the Developer Portal.  If you have the documentation link then you can remove excess documentation from the long description.


Jobs Delays in the US Region

Today, Thursday 20, 2019 from 02:02 CET, one of our job workers became unresponsive.

This resulted in some jobs taking longer to process as they had to wait for one of the other available workers whose workload had increased as a result.

The affected instance was replaced at 15:50 CET and we are working on improving the automated detection of such failures.

Thank you for your understanding.
