We are happy to announce the October 2019 Release which is dedicated to the new private ODATA Connection:
- Private ODATA Feed in the Cloud Service (Preview)
Access to the public ODATA feed (from the public showcase applications) has been available to everyone (https://data1-service.azurewebsites.net/odatapub) for some time. Now it is possible to connect to your own private data1.io application using the new private ODATA feed (https://data1-service.azurewebsites.net/odataprivate) using a tool like Power BI ...
... and authenticating with your application specific service account ...
... and connect to the datamodel of your custom data1.io application:
As you can see in the screenshot not only the fact and dimension tables are available but also the very useful workflow tables. Please be aware that this feature is in preview and will later be part of the paid enterprise plan. At this stage, everyone with a free plan can request the private ODATA connection to test it.
- New System Health Monitor for all services
We have established a new system health monitor which shows the Up- and Downtimes from the last 7 days of all our system components including the public website.
- New Lookup Type in the Web App
We are happy to provide a new type of lookup in our Web App. It is this kind of lookup where you define with another selection the field where to execute the lookup. This is useful e.g. in the definition of Row-Level-Security (RLS) where you select the Dimension Table and the Table Attribute and - from now on - you get a dynamic dropdown for the Attribute Elements as well.
- New Feedback Button in the Excel Web Add-In
We have introduced the Feedback Function some time ago on the Web App, now it is also avaiable in the Excel Web Add-In. It appears after you have logged in and delivers (of course) the same dialog as in the Web App. Please give us your Feedback whereever you are!
- Improvements in the Web App
We have executed a first large performance test on the data1.io Cloud Service and the SQL Azure databases behind every application which led us to important findings which are now already part of the current version. Furthermore, we have solved a bug which forced the cloud service to restart every few minutes
Hope you like the new features, let us know what you think about it!
