Advanced Properties for Oracle Connections

The Oracle connection type provides additional, advanced properties which you can use when you've enabled the connection for building views and accessing data with remote tables. The properties provide default values that you can override according to your customer scenario’s needs. For example you can decide to use the connection information from the Oracle tnsnames.ora file to connect to the Oracle database.

For more information, see Oracle.

Unlock a View Persistency Task

In the Data Integration Monitor, you can’t run parallel execution of tasks. However, it can happen that for some reasons a task has failed and the status was not updated and thus, you can't restart the task. In the View Persistency Monitor, you can now set the task to failed status in the logs view.

For more information, see Adding and Monitoring Persisted Views.

Modify Data Flow Sources

You can now add, modify, or delete columns in tables and views that are used as sources in data flows. When a user opens the data flow, they will be notified that sources have changed. If the changes generate a warning or error in the data flow, the user will receive a notification.

For more information, see Modifying Data Objects That Have Dependent Objects.

Creating a Geo-Enrichment in a Dimension View
