    Web-UI Enhancements

    • Improved User Experience

      Updated Filter Node’s design to be more intuitive and user friendly
    • Undo/Redo Flow Changes

      Users can undo or redo the changes to the flow with the provided buttons or through keystrokes.

    Driver Enhancements

    • Added support for Dynamic Relational DataSource Configuration

      A callback TDV procedure, that is implemented in SQL Script or as a custom Java procedure (CJP) and owned by TDV administrators, can be registered with a relational data source to apply runtime customizations to the data source properties configuration before a connection is used by the TDV server to establish a new session with the data source. All customizations are transient. Their scope is limited to the specification of the JDBC properties to be used by data source connections.
      As an example, an administrator could define a SQL Script procedure that determines the user associated with an incoming request accessing a relational data source and use TDV domain specific language (DSL) statements to adjust its JDBC connection properties to reflect what type of access - ReadWrite or ReadOnly - should apply to the data source connection used by the user request.
    • Vertica - text index

      Added support to create and drop text index in Vertica driver.
      The source table on which the index is to be created must have a primary key and an associated projection. It must also be both sorted and segmented by the primary key.
    • File System Adapters Date Inference - File System Adapters such as LFS, S3, Azure Data Lake, and GCS now infer the data type of file columns carrying date values as DATE.

    Driver Improvements

    • TDV drivers JDBC/ODBC/ADO.Net now supports OAuth Token (headless flow). A new configuration parameter delegateOauth2flowToServer has been added.

    This is a flag used to indicate whether the oauth2 ROPC flow delegation is used for JDBC/ODBC/ADO.net driver. set this to True to delegate OAUTH2 ROPC flow to TDV server from JDBC/ODBC/ADO.net driver and invoke a call to the oauth IDP and get token from it. set this to false to indicate not to delegate OAUTH2 ROPC flow to TDV server from JDBC/ODBC/ADO.net driver.

    • A new optional property has been added in Connection String of the JDBC/ODBC?ADO.Net drivers that will enable TCP-KeepAlive for the connection.. In the DSN Editor UI(ODBC) this property is located under 'connection' tab

    Property Name: EnableKeepAlive
    Property Type: Boolean
    Default Value: false
    • ADO.Net logger performance has been improved.

    TDV Server Improvements

    • Multiple Workload Management Rules can be defined for User Requests. A rule action is triggered when the user request satisfies a rule. All rules except the EXCEPTION can be invoked many times within the life cycle of request. The EXCEPTION rule however, terminates the request by throwing an exception that has been defined.

    • To reduce the traffic in KPI Metrics, you now have the ability to filter internal and server sessions.

    Query Engine Improvements

    • TDV’s DECIMAL data type now supports arbitrary values. Datasources Oracle, Postgres, Teradata, Greenplum (fork of Postgres) support this arbitrary NUMERIC datatype.

    • Support has been added for the DDL statement CREATE OR REPLACE TABLE DDL

    • Support has been added for pre-aggregation over UNION ALL when the aggregate function is a composite function.

    • Support has been added to the function TO_NCHAR.

    • Numeric Division is now supported when performing integer divisions. To enable/disable this, use the configuration option /server/sql/language/numericDivision.

    • New SELECT option has been included NO_DATA_CACHE_IMMEDIATE. This disables caching for immediate views only. It does not affect sub views.

    Security Enhacements

    • TDV drivers JDBC/ODBC/ADO.Net now supports OAuth Token (headless flow). A new configuration parameter delegateOauth2flowToServer has been added.

    This is a flag used to indicate whether the oauth2 ROPC flow delegation is used for JDBC/ODBC/ADO.net driver. set this to True to delegate OAUTH2 ROPC flow to TDV server from JDBC/ODBC/ADO.net driver and invoke a call to the oauth IDP and get token from it. set this to false to indicate not to delegate OAUTH2 ROPC flow to TDV server from JDBC/ODBC/ADO.net driver

    • TDV now supports the field Scope when creating an OAuth domain. Microsoft Azure requires to have "application ID URI" in front of the scope values (ie. prefix api://...). This will enable TDV to receive a valid access token that has a valid issuer value.

    Studio Enhancements

    • TDV Studio Editor has been replaced. Some of the notable features are:

        Occurrence bar is added to the right edge of the editor which shows the current matches in the Find/Replace context
        Bookmarks are added. These bookmarks are not retained when the content is reloaded. They are useful in the current editing session only.
        Context menu is added for the most commonly used editor commands (You can activate the context menu by Right mouse click).
        Line numbers can be turned on and off from the user preference. Line number color can be customized as well.
        You can set options such as Auto-complete, Line number, Line wrap, Auto-Capitilization, Syntax Coloring, Fonts etc. from the Editor Preferences window. Access the Editor Preferences by choosing Edit->Options from the TDV Studio menu and choosing the Editor tab.
        The Find/Replace interface looks slightly different from the old editor, but most of the functions are retained.
        Status bar now includes the read-only indicator, line-wrap toggle, and the line and character count tool-tip over the cursor location indicator. The PC/UNIX/Mac line ending option has been removed.
        User preferences and keyboard shortcut quick help have been updated accordingly
        Syntax Highlighting has been retained from the previous editor and most of the functions are the same. Currently XQuery editor comments are not highlighted.
        Resource paths will not be auto-completed in the editor. Drag and drop the resources to your editor pane to display the entire path of the resources.
        Manual code folding is removed, but auto XML code folding is added.
        A list of new keyboard shortcuts are available by accessing the menu item Help -> Editor Quick Help.
    • The visual presentation of the information displayed in the Execution Query Plan in TDV Studio has been improved for better readability.

    • Toolkit Improvements - TDV Data Source Toolkit framework has been extended to support DDL syntax configuration against toolkit adapters. The ability to configure CREATE and DROP TABLE / INDEX syntax or use an alternate syntax has been added to the toolkit framework. The framework also allows for pointing to an external storage using EXTERNAL TABLE syntax. This framework will allow for custom toolkit based adapters to be used as a target system for materializing data sets.

    Performance / Scalability

    • Pass-through query performance improvements - To improve performance of single data source pass-through queries, the wire protocol between TDV clients and TDV server has been optimized. The improvements include optimizing for certain data types like strings, as well as optimization in the transport protocol to reduce the latency on the client. Client drivers like JDBC, ODBC and ADO.NET can configure the enableFlood and stripDuplicates properties in the connection URL to enable this optimization. The Power BI connector also exposes these properties for enabling the optimization.
    • Analytics functions support in MPPE - TDV 8.2 has extended the Massively Parallel Processing Engine to parallelize the following analytical functions:
      • Value functions - LAG(), LEAD(), FIRST_VALUE(), LAST_VALUE()
