Matillion ETL for Snowflake 1.62.7

(4th April 2022)

New Features & Improvements

  • Preview Labs is now available for Matillion ETL for Snowflake. Preview Labs offers you early access to select features that are in development for Matillion ETL. Users must manually activate features in Preview Labs. Please be aware that Preview Labs features are still in development, and your mileage may vary.
  • A new feature, Manage External File Sources, lets you connect to and sync with a source code repository hosting service (Bitbucket, GitHub, GitLab, AWS CodeCommit). A connected file source can then be selected in the new Sync File Source component. This is currently a Preview Labs feature.
  • A new component, Sync File Source lets you fetch the latest commit for a specified file source created in Manage External File Sources. This is currently a Preview Labs feature.
  • A new component, Run DBT Command lets you run dbt commands as part of an orchestration job. This is currently a Preview Labs feature.
  • A new Zero Copy Clone integration between Matillion ETL and Snowflake lets you make a copy of a database without duplicating the data. The clone operation takes a snapshot of the source data when the clone is performed, and makes this data available to the cloned object.
  • New LinkedIn Ads Query component. The LinkedIn Ads Query component uses the LinkedIn Ads API to retrieve data and load it into a table. Certain data sources are no longer available in LinkedIn Query because they are available in this component instead. Please read the component documentation for more information.
  • Linkedin Query has been deprecated and replaced with a new version, still called LinkedIn Query.
    • Existing jobs using the "old" LinkedIn Query component should continue to work as expected.
    • The "old" LinkedIn Query component is highlighted as deprecated in the extant jobs.
    • Dragging the LinkedIn Query component onto the canvas will use the "new" version of the component.
    • A number of data sources are no longer available in LinkedIn Query but are available instead in LinkedIn Ads Query. These data sources are listed in the component reference documentation.
  • As of 23rd February 2022, the v11.0 Marketing API is no longer available. As such, Matillion ETL uses v12.0 as the default Marketing API for Facebook Ads Query. Read Available Marketing API Versions in Changelog for more information.
  • A new Twitter Ads Query component is available. This component uses the Twitter Ads API to retrieve data and load it into a table.
  • The Google AdWords Query component has been deprecated. This deprecation is in line with Google sunsetting the AdWords API on 27th April, 2022. On this date, any Google AdWords jobs in your Matillion ETL instance will fail. Read our tech note for more information.
  • A new Google Ads Query component is available, replacing the Google AdWords Query component.
  • The Rename component has been updated and now includes an Include Input Columns property.
  • The Dynamics 365 Business Central Query component has been updated. A new property has been added: Authentication. Read Dynamics 365 Business Central Query Authentication guide to learn how to create and authorize an OAuth entry. Additionally, the following properties have been removed:

Matillion ETL for Snowflake 1.59.12 AND 1.60.2

(Updated 8th February 2022)

If you initially upgraded to 1.60.1, please update to 1.60.2 or higher to receive a bug fix.

Version 1.60.1. was adversely affected by a bug that was causing the following components to fail to locate their driver:

  • Google BigQuery
  • Jira Query
  • QuickBooks Online Query
  • Xero Query

Versions 1.60.2 and higher include a bugfix for this behaviour.

  • These two updates have been released together and contain specific, sequential package-based changes that will allow Matillion ETL products to be updated to versions 1.60 and higher. Full details of the changes, and the available upgrade options, can be found at Matillion ETL — Upgrading to version 1.60 and above.
  • As with all Matillion ETL updates, we encourage all customers to consume the updates as soon as they are available.

Matillion ETL for Snowflake 1.59.11

(20th January 2022)

  • Updated the Apache Spark JDBC driver to version 2.6.22.1040 provided by Databricks. This driver version does not contain any versions of Log4j 1.x.

Matillion ETL for Snowflake 1.59.10

(12th January 2022)

Bug Fixes

  • Removed all Log4j versions below version 2.17 from Matillion ETL.

Matillion ETL does still include sb_slf4j-log4j. This includes a version of log4j 1.x, and is brought in by the Apache Spark JDBC driver used by Matillion ETL for Delta Lake on Databricks. Databricks is in the process of removing it completely from the driver. Once it is ready, we will release a new version of Matillion ETL with the driver upgrade.

Please rest assured that:

  • The Log4j 1.x inside the driver is unused by the driver itself, and cannot be used by anything else in Matillion ETL.
  • The driver is unused by all products except Matillion ETL for Delta Lake on Databricks.
  • Log4j 1.x has no known vulnerabilities unless the customer manually adds XML configurations onto the Matillion ETL server to allow exploits.

Matillion ETL for Snowflake 1.59.9

(24th December 2021)

Bug Fixes

  • The Apache Spark JDBC driver has been updated in relation the to Log4j vulnerability. Please see the Databricks release notes for more information.

Matillion ETL for Snowflake 1.59.7

(15th December 2021)

New Features & Improvements

  • The merge conflict resolution feature in Matillion ETL's Git integration has been updated. Both the Resolve Conflicts dialog and the Merge dialog have received updates:
    • The Choice column is now enabled in Resolve Conflicts, and users can select Ours or Theirs on a granular, per-conflict level to settle a merge conflict.
    • Conflicts are now highlighted red for added visibility in Resolve Conflicts. This red highlight will disappear after a change has been committed, not simply when a selection has been made in the Choice column.
    • The Base column is no longer visible by default in Resolve Conflicts. This is to enhance readability when deciding between Ours and Theirs.
    • Descriptions of jobs are also included in the Resolve Conflicts dialog.
    • Since merge conflicts are now settled at a cherry-picked level of specificity in the Resolve Conflicts dialog, the Merge dialog no longer offers users the single choice of Ours or Theirs. Instead, the Merge dialog acts as a staging area before and after resolving individual conflicts.
  • The Migrate feature is now accessed by clicking AdminMigrate in the upper-right of the user interface (previously, Migrate was located in the Project menu).
  • Migrate has also been updated to include user configuration including users, user groups, usernames, passwords, roles, and permissions as a migration resource.
  • Users can now select whether scheduled jobs that missed their trigger time are run as soon as possible by selecting the Ignore misfires checkbox in the Create Schedule dialog.
  • Improved the functionality of Matillion ETL when operating behind a proxy.
  • Connection options are now added to the Add Data Source dialog for SAP NetWeaver Query.
  • The Task API now has endpoints for filtering task history by endtime.
    • GET/by/end/after/date/<date>
    • GET/by/end/after/date/<date>/time/<time>
    • GET/by/end/range/date/<startDate>/time/<startTime>/to/date/<endDate>/time/<endTime>
    • The date format should be [yyyy-mm-dd].
    • The time format should be [HH:mm].

Bug Fixes

  • (Azure only) Fixed an issue where Matillion ETL was logging users out unexpectedly.
  • Fixed an issue where users were unable to transfer data via the Data Transfer component through a proxy server.
  • Maintainability improvements to the billing service codebase.
  • Fixed an issue where renaming a component that is joined to the Join component was causing the join to fail.

Driver Updates

  • Google Ad Manager API driver updated (20.0.7737.0) → 21.0.7930)
  • Marketo API driver updated (20.0.7767.0 → 21.0.7930)

Matillion ETL for Snowflake 1.58.4

(10th November 2021)

New Features & Improvements

  • Apache Tomcat version updated to 8.5.72
  • A new Git Merge Conflict Resolution tool empowers users to observe in depth the narrative differences between "Ours", "Base", and "Theirs" before making merge conflict resolution decisions.
  • The new References lets users see where a job or Shared Job is being used or referenced by another job. The References tab lists all referents and includes a URL path so that users can quickly navigate to a job. To learn more, readJob References.
  • The References tab also applies to components.
  • Renaming an orchestration job or transformation job now includes the functionality to select whether to also rename all other references to that job. To learn more, read Job Reference Renaming.
  • The Oracle Output component has been updated. The component now has a Port property, where users must specify a port number for their Oracle endpoint. The default port number is 1521.
  • The Rewrite Table component has been updated. The Sort Order property now has an enhanced UI for users to select columns by which to sort, as well as the ascending/descending sort order per column.
  • The Table Output component has been updated. The Sort Order property now has an enhanced UI for users to select columns by which to sort, as well as the ascending/descending sort order per column.
  • The File Iterator component has been updated. The Variables property now offers Last Modified as a selectable file attribute. When selected, this last modified date is formatted as ISO8601, with a UTC indicator. For example, 2021-01-04T10:45:15.123Z
  • The Table Iterator component has been updated. Users can now interact with a Mode property and select either Basic or Advanced. Subsequent component properties will be available depending on the selection. Similarly to how Query components work, Basic Mode requires users to select settings in additional properties; whereas Advanced Mode offers a single Query property, where users can manually add SQL.
  • All five iterator components have been updated to include a Stop on Condition property when running in Sequential concurrency (and not Concurrent). If Stop on Condition is set to Yes, additional properties related to composing the condition(s) will be available. Please refer to the component documentation for help with these properties.
  • The Google Analytics Query component has been updated with an API property. This property has two selectable options, each of which will determine the available data sources that users can pull data from. Data models are linked below:
    1. Google Universal Analytics
    2. Google Analytics 4
  • Increased the scope of the matillion-sudo file to allow for universal builds.

Bug Fixes

  • (Azure instances only) Fixed an issue where billing instances associated with the Matillion Hub were falsely requiring an Enterprise-level licence for non-clustered instances.
  • Fixed an issue where the Stripe Query component would report success and 0 rows staged, despite using an expired API key.
  • Fixed an issue with the Oracle Output component where if a user added a primary key, the temporary table name was longer than the 30 allowed characters. Now, the unique ID in the table name is denoted as six characters out of those 30.
  • Fixed an issue where the UseSandbox connection option was not pulled from the OAuth in the Salesforce Query component.
  • The Facebook Ads Query component now uses the v11 API by default (replacing v10). For users who want to use v12, set the APIVersion connection option to 12; the version must also be set to 12 in your Facebook application. If you do choose to set the API to v12, you will need to reconfigure any Facebook Ads OAuth entries, as v12 requests additional scopes.
  • Fixed an issue where attempting to use Windows File Share resulted in an exception.

Driver Updates

  • Dynamics 365 Sales API driver updated (20.0.7662 → 21.0.7930)

  • Fixed an issue where user defined credentials were malformed when accessing S3 buckets.
  • Fixed an issue where users were unable to create the true maximum number of environments in Matillion ETL instances created via the Matillion Hub.
  • Fixed an issue where file paths were not persisting as expected in components with a file browser property (such as S3 Object Prefix in S3 Load; Google Storage URL Location in Cloud Storage Load, Azure Storage Location in Azure Blob Storage Load; and the Source URL and Target URL properties in Data Transfer) and added validation when the / key is pressed by the user, to dynamically update a filepath as it is being typed.

Matillion ETL for Snowflake 1.55.5

(9th August 2021)

New Features

  • Matillion ETL Secrets Manager lets you create a secret manager that will directly reference passwords, API tokens, keys, and secrets stored in third party secrets manager platforms. Currently, this feature only supports AWS Secrets Manager. Users can create new secret managers via the dialog, and see a list of their existing secret managers.
  • Matillion ETL server admins can now control the session timeout expiration of their Matillion ETL instances. The default value is 180 minutes, but server admins can reduce or increase this as their organizational needs require.
  • Query components using an Amazon S3 bucket as the staging location now offer an additional property, Use Accelerated Endpoint, which harnesses the capabilities of Amazon S3 Transfer Acceleration.
    Please note: Amazon S3 Transfer Acceleration may not always be quicker. Use this speed comparison tool to estimate whether S3 Transfer Acceleration will benefit your use case.
  • Snowflake Multi-Cloud enables cloud-agnostic data ingress and egress by leveraging Snowflake's native authentication (Storage Integrations) and COPY/UNLOAD commands without the need for multiple "flavours" of Matillion ETL.
    • Users can access the load components S3 Load, Azure Blob Storage Load, and Cloud Storage Load from any Matillion ETL for Snowflake instance that is running version 1.55.5 or higher.

  • Users can now add column-level metadata comments in the Create Table component. Navigate to the Columns property when the component is clicked, and add any comments.

Improvements

  • The Migrate tool has been redesigned into a four-page wizard. Users must now validate their connection from their source to their target instances. Validation errors will therefore be discovered earlier. The four-page wizard has been designed to improve the user friendliness and clarity of the migration process within Matillion ETL.

The new component has the same name (Facebook Query), the same configuration properties, and the same property defaults as the deprecated component. The deprecated version of the component will persist for any of your existing Orchestration Jobs.
  • New NetSuite Query replaces the original component. From version 1.54 of Matillion ETL, the NetSuite Query component only accepts OAuth as an authentication method. The previous version of the component will persist for your existing Orchestration Jobs. Users can cycle back to a previous version of the component's documentation if they wish. The new version of the component does not include the following properties:
    • Authentication Method
    • Account ID
    • User
    • Password
  • Names of components will now wrap to a new line when a certain width is exceeded on the Matillion ETL canvas.
  • Guidance has been added to the help text in the Matillion ETL Updates dialog, explaining the preferred and safest way to update Matillion ETL.
  • Users can manually decided whether to track manual or scheduled (or both) job runs using Manage Error Reporting.
  • Users can now navigate directly to the task history of an Orchestration or Transformation Job. The string History* will be appended, enabling users to predictably determine the task history URL. When switching back to the job, the URL will drop the appended string.
