Introducing SQL Datasets
You can now create the equivalent of views (virtual tables) directly in the logical data model using SQL datasets. The dataset is created based on a custom SQL query that you define.
With SQL datasets you can rapidly create new ‘virtual views’ without having to modify the original database, which may not always be possible.
Please note that at this moment this is a beta feature, and we discourage you from using beta features in production environments.
Rename Dashboard Filters
If your attributes filters have long or technical names, you can now change their names on Dashboards in the filter configuration while editing the dashboard. The name of the filter is changed only on the particular dashboard and is not propagated to other dashboards.
Use Attribute Filters on Dashboards
Streamlining Property ID Generation
Column names with specific GoodData-compatible prefixes (such as cp__, a__, f__ and so on) will no longer contain these prefixes in the generated dataset property identifiers. This should make it easier for you to work with these properties when writing in MAQL.
Upcoming Features and Changes
Dashboard Sharing and Dashboard Permissions
In an upcoming version we are extending our system of permissions to also cover individual dashboards. Newly created dashboards will be private by default, and you get to choose what users and user groups you share the dashboard with. This will be a breaking change for users of GoodData.UI version 8.11 or older. We urge users of GoodData.UI to update to version 8.12 as soon as possible to prevent encountering issues with dashboard permissions.
