Article summary

What's New? 🚀


  • Bigquery as a Target now includes data type widening - When you change a column's data type in the Source table, the corresponding Target column will adjust to accommodate wider data types by default. You can control this behavior with a toggle in the Additional Options section.

  • Enhancing User Experience and Features Adoption With Education Segments:

    we have implemented a new education segment within relevant areas of the console. This segment is designed to provide users with technical guidance and resources to better understand and utilize the platform's functionalities.

    The education segment is now accessible from the following console pages:

    • Create Logic River
    • Create Action River
    • Source to Target River Pages (using CDC extraction mode)
    • Environments (under the Deployment tab)

    Within these education sements, users can access technical resources, such as How-to guides, Instructional videos, and book a live session with one of our data experts.


Sources Updates

  • SQL Server - a new option has been introduced that enables the retrieval of deleted rows. When using Change Tracking as the extraction mode and using Snowflake or Databricks as the Target," this option allows you to recover deleted records. The key fields of the deleted rows will remain unchanged, while all other fields will be set to NULL. This enhancement provides more flexibility and control in your data extraction process.

  • Zendesk to Snowflake - We upgraded the pagination method to support cursor-based pagination for the Zendesk incremental ticket export, ensuring complete and accurate data transfer.
  • Appsflyer to Bigquery - We've resolved an issue of null values encountered while retrieving data from the source by deploying a mapping improvement within the API to handle null values for supported reports.
