Release Notes 4.4.0


  • On the execution result catalog page, we now show the exact statement run to get that result.

Bug Fixes

  • Users no longer see private conversations listed. Previously, a user could see the title of a private conversation, but not view the contents.

  • You can now share articles with any email address. Previously, you could only share with Alation users.

  • If you sort queries by “Last Execution” we are now sorting by last executed date. Previously we were sorting by last successful run.

  • All columns now display properly in the Column tab on the Table page. Previously pages two and beyond displayed as faded out.

  • When logging in via Internet Explorer, icons now always appear to indicate what each field is. Previously, the icons would not render in some cases.

  • You can now remove top users from a Data Source, even if you aren’t the owner of the Data Source. Previously, you needed to be the owner of the data source.

  • A version of the article is saved each time you hit “save.” Previously, we collapsed edits together if they were within fifteen minutes of each other.

  • Articles that have been deleted are now marked “[Gone]” when referenced in Custom Fields, as they are elsewhere.

  • Lexicon pages are now only viewable by admins.

  • In Advanced Search, you can now edit the titles of queries when clicking on the pencil. Previously we were opening the query in a new window.

  • The column filter in the Compose results pane now displays properly.

  • You can now view the text in the “While you’re waiting…” text field when using Dusk Compose.

  • Viewing a previous version of an article now correctly shows the custom field values at that time. Previously we showed the custom field values for the most recent version.

  • “Download Data Dictionary” no longer includes objects that were excluded from the catalog.

Admin Release Notes

Bug Fixes

  • We no longer incorrectly report a “not running” error for a sync job (metadata extraction, profiling, or query log ingestion) that actually is running. Previously this could happen arbitrarily based on fluctuation in an operating system metric we use.
