Privacy and Security Information
This release contains several security related updates. We highly recommend upgrading to this latest release to take advantage of any security-related updates and benefit from the Sisense support and warranty. In addition, Sisense strongly recommends regularly testing and auditing your environment after upgrading, and periodically during your subscription term, to ensure all privacy and security settings remain in place.
Customers are responsible for controlling and monitoring your environments and are therefore in the best position to ensure the correct security settings are in place for how you use Sisense products.
Due to the complexity of Sisense products, we strongly suggest that all customers ensure that you understand how all of the privacy and security settings within Sisense work.
If you use Sisense to store/process sensitive data, it is your responsibility to review and test your implementation to ensure you are not inadvertently sharing data with unauthorized third parties. For more information on data security rules, see Data Access Security.
BREAKING CHANGES - WARNING!
Release L2022.2 provides a number of new features and significant improvements to Sisense for Linux.
This release includes the following new features:
- Connecting to CSV File - Ignore Missing Columns
- Volatile Mode for Embed SDK
- Test Web Access Token API
- A new toggle button has been added to the settings when connecting to a CSV file to enable ignoring any missing columns in the CSV file you are connecting to. This prevents the build from failing if the CSV file has missing columns and the system doesn't recognize the updated file, or the file doesn't exist in the library.
- After connecting to a CSV file, in the Settings area, toggle the Ignore Missing Columns button on and off. See Connecting to CSV.
- Volatile mode for the Embed SDK enables users to make changes in an asset and manipulate its data without the changes being saved to the DB.
- The asset reverts back to the original state of the accessed resource, once the page is refreshed.
- When the SDK is in editMode, Volatile mode is not supported and the configuration forces false.
- Sisense has developed a new API that enables you to test an (existing) generated Web Access Token for its structure, logic, and data validation.
- The test helps to determine any reason(s) why a token may be faulty or simply to ensure that the token is properly generated.
- Calling /wat/validate API with the included token and optional parameter "validationLevel" results in a comprehensive validation and provides detailed error messages if there's a failure. The default "validationLevel" is "data", which successively includes structure and logic validations.
Dashboards and Widgets
- Values in Background filters that are excluded are no longer shown in the Dependent filter.
- Blox Submit Action - Submitting requests to external domains from the Blox widget is repaired.
JDBC drivers that are not up to date with java 17, may not work. Users that have an installed Generic_Jdbc connector, may not be able to use it without updating the JDBC driver to a Java 17-compatible version.
