We recommend configuring the time zone for the organization or workspace, so that you always see relevant data (the default is UTC)Learn more:Manage Time ZonesOrder of Items in Stacked ChartsTo improve the readability of charts with stacked items, we have reversed the order of the items displayed.In bar charts, column charts, and stacked area charts, the order of the items now corresponds with the left-to-right order in the legend.New Entitlements APIWe have expanded the previously introduced API endpoint /actions/resolveEntitlements.Organization administrators can now get information about the current number of used workspaces and users from in license.We have also introduced a new API endpoint /actions/collectUsage that displays how many workspaces and users currently exist in your organization. Learn more:View EntitlementsView UsageNew API Filter EntityYou can now filter workspace entities using the origin=ALL|PARENTS|NATIVE filter to get only the workspace itself, or only its parent workspaces, or both. Learn more:OriginConfigurable CSP For OrganizationsControl hostname restrictions for your GoodData deployment with Content Security Policy (CSP).

Please note that this will require you to update customized-values-pulsar.yaml when upgrading to GoodData.CN 2.1, for more information, see Upgrade GoodData.CN to 2.1 below.Get the Community EditionPull the GoodData.CN Community Edition to get started with the latest release:docker pull gooddata/gooddata-cn-ce:2.1.0Upgrade GuidesUpgrade GoodData.CN Community Edition to 2.1Suppose you are using a docker volume to store metadata from your GoodData.CN CE container. Download a new version of the GoodData.CN CE docker image and start it with your volume. All your metadata is migrated automatically.Upgrade GoodData.CN to 2.1Preload updated Custom Resource Definition (CRD) for Organization resources. Due to the helm command limitation, it is impossible to update CRD automatically by Helm. Therefore it is necessary to update this CRD manually by following this procedure: Download and extract gooddata-cn helm chart to an empty directory on local disk. helm pull gooddata/gooddata-cn --version 2.1.0 --untar Update modified CRD in the cluster where the older GoodData.CN release is deployed: kubectl apply -f gooddata-cn/crds/organization-crd.yaml You can clean local extracted helm chart rm-r gooddata-cn The new version of Apache Pulsar in GoodData.CN 2.1 requires you update the customized-values-pulsar.yaml. The following two lines need to be added to the Pulsar broker configuration: systemTopicEnabled: "true" topicLevelPoliciesEnabled: "true" Note that you may need to restart the broker pod after making this change, or just uncomment the restartPodsOnConfigMapChange: true line. See Use Customized values.yaml for Pulsar that contains the updated version of customized-values-pulsar.yaml with these changes already integrated. If you are using embedded PostgreSQL database, refer to the following Upgrade Postgresql-ha Helm Chart section for instructions on how to upgrade it. Perform a rescan of your data source with replace mode, to create an up-to-date version of the physical data model and to avoid any unwanted errors when regenerating the logical data model.Upgrade Postgresql-ha Helm ChartIf you’re using external PostgreSQL database (when you deployed gooddata-cn helm chart with option deployPostgresHA: false), you can skip this step because it is not relevant for your deployment.If you’re using embedded PostgreSQL database (with deployPostgresHA: true set in values.yaml), you will need to perform the following process to upgrade postgresql-ha helm chart from version 8.6.13 to 9.1.5:Follow the steps in this article to upgrade your helm chart for GoodData.CN 2.1.0.

They have been expanded with additional parameters and new default behaviors.New Default Behavior for Synchronizing User GroupsThe provisioning and rollout brick now synchronize user groups from master workspaces to client workspaces. Only the user groups are synchronized. The members of the user group are not included. The release brick already had this support.New Default Behavior for Responsive and Pixel Perfect Shared DashboardsIn a segment's master workspace, dashboards can be private or shared with all or some users/user groups.At release, rollout, and provisioning, sharing permissions are now propagated in the following way:Dashboards set as private in the master workspace remain private in the client workspaces. Dashboards shared with all users in the master workspace become dashboards shared with all users in the client workspaces. Dashboards shared with some users/user groups in the master workspace become dashboards shared with some user groups in the client workspaces.The same logic applies for development workspaces and master workspaces.To disable the propagation of the user group permissions for shared dashboards, specify the following new parameters in the release, provision, and rollot bricks according to your dashboard type:disable_kd_dashboard_permission true if your dashboards are built in the Responsive disable_pp_dashboard_permission trueif your dashboards are built in the Pixel-perfect UI.Users can now be Removed from User GroupsUsers can now be removed from user groups through the Users Brick.
