Release Notes 4.2.0¶
A new oft-requested feature: you will now get email notifications for DBA-relevant events, e.g. if Metadata Extraction fails. Admins can disable this in their notification preferences.
We’ve also improved our APIs by
fixing the bug where the Alation API token can only be retrieved when using built-in authentication (You can now fetch your API token from the “Misc” tab in the Admin Settings UI)
and adding the ability to
filter results by Picker, Date, or Text Custom Fields in the Metadata GET API
and disable propagation of titles/descriptions added via API to derived columns using a parameter.
We now show the timezone in log timestamps
We updated the Alation Repair action to fix permissions on PostgreSQL data directory
and added readline library to chroot so we can use arrow keys in the Python shell.
fixed the bug where Alation services are not automatically started after a reboot
