What's New? 🚀


  • Google BigQuery as a Source is a fully managed and serverless data warehouse provided by Google Cloud Platform.

    Following BigQuery's initial integration as a Target, Rivery has expanded its capabilities to include BigQuery as a Source. This enhancement offers you advantage of harnessing BigQuery's robust data storage and querying features, seamlessly incorporating this data into your Rivers.


  • Skip Initial Migration - When a user selects the option to "Remove the Initial Migration for all Tables", the status will promptly transition from "waiting for migration" to "streaming." This change is particularly important because it empowers users to bypass the migration process if the tables already exist on the target system, such as in scenarios where a client previously utilized Standard Extraction mode and now intends to migrate data using Change Data Capture (CDC).

  • Databricks as a Target now allows you to configure a Custom FileZone when connecting to Azure Blob storage.

  • Improvements have been made to the Rivery Sign-Up Process, featuring a fresh new design. Additionally, users now have the flexibility to create their account in their desired region.

Sources Updates

  • Amazon S3 - We have improved the extraction capabilities and incremental loading mechanism for the source. Additionally, we have introduced the ability to extract Excel files. Furthermore, we have expanded the connector's capabilities to include loading Zip files, allowing clients to load zip files of various supported file types, such as CSV, Excel, and JSON.
