We're happy to announce the arrival of Configuration Rows, our new powerful configuration format, to database writers.
From now on, you'll see a migration button in the configuration detail of each database writer (Snowflake, MySQL, SQL Server, Oracle, PostgreSQL, Impala, Hive, and Redshift).
Just click Migrate Configuration and the configuration will be migrated to the new format.
After the migration, you'll see more information about each table. All tables can be easily reordered, so you can move more important tables to the top and they will be uploaded first.
Also, you will be able to see information about each table on a new table detail page, with Last runs and Versions in a sidebar.
Underlying Important Changes
While there were certain limitations in the old configuration format, this is no longer true in the new "rows format".
The following features are worth mentioning:
- Disabled tables will no longer be exported from Storage (previously, they were exported with limit=1 and not used in the database writer).
- Each table has its own state with information about the date/time of the last import (previously, an upload of a single table cleared the state for other tables).
