Meet the Community | Introduce yourself
Hi everyone! My name is Pavel Kolesnikov, and I’m part of GoodData’s product and product marketing team. I joined the company about 10 years ago, and I’ve been working in a number of technical customer-facing positions, including professional services, sales engineering, and product management. I live in San Francisco with my wife and two kids, but I’m originally from the Czech Republic. I like online chess, running, sourdough baking, and coffee roasting. I’m part of the team responsible for launching and running the new GoodData community. I’ve started this topic so my colleagues can introduce themselves, and I hope to hear more about you too. Feel free to use this topic to share where you work, what you do, and how you use or are going to use the GoodData platform! I’m excited to see how our customers use GoodData to build great analytical products. Looking forward to meeting everyone!

GoodData Essential Concepts and Terms
While you can find a full comprehensive GoodData Glossary in the main GoodData product documentation, sometimes you just need a quick list of the most used terms, especially if you're just getting started with GoodData or data analytics in general. Workspace/Project Workspace is an analytical environment for your end users. In multi-tenant environments, customers keep one workspace per tenant to achieve the best performance, security and level of customization. A workspace is a collection of dashboards, visualizations, metrics, data models, data sets, and users. Workspaces can also be referred to as projects. Logical Data Model (LDM) A model of the relationship between all the facts and attributes within a project which makes creating charts and building metrics with MAQL possible. A logical data model is frequently visualized as an oriented graph that illustrates the relationships found in the logical data model. This can be referred to when building metrics and charts.

Workspaces not created
Hello guys!I would like some help in understanding a difficulty we are facing...We are creating Workspaces for our TenantIds. The table that GoodData uses to create Workspaces is found in our BigQuery database.In this table, we have 9 Tenants, where 3 workspaces were not created, even though they were successful as a return from the Release, Provisioning, Rollout and Add processes.Could you help me understand the reason for this non-creation?Attached is the Provisioning log, where, even though it was successful, the log shows some suspicious results.Uncreated workspaces are:5d151c3d6cee11536058412c 56d8af35d75d9632105a33f0 56a89ce4f117f90f98fcde2c
Why does the problem "Invalid value in column 2 for type Int8" always exist when running ads integrator although the data type is varchar (not integer)?
Hi everyone, wish you have a happy new year.I have had a big problem when working with ADS Integrator and now I still cannot fix that problem. I have been stuck with this for 2 days. The problem is “Invalid value in column 2 for type Int8” with the column that has a varchar type (not integer or numeric data type).More specific, I have a csv file with the name ip_address_string_new with 6 columns, and all columns I have modified it with varchar data type. When I run csv downloader for this csv file, it still runs successfully and nothing happens. But when I run the ADS integrator, the errors folder appear with the ip_address_string_new rejected file and ip_address_string_new exception file. In the ip_address_string_new exception file, it said that “Invalid value in column 2 for type Int8 - '' len 0” like the image belowAnd In the ip_address_string_new rejected file, there’re some records like the image below. It said that in the column 2 in each record, the ADS Integrator cannot conve

User creation without email
Hi Team While creating users in the gooddata cloud for our domain, learned that user id has to be in an email format only. Is there any specific reason for this format?For ldap users there is a possibility that we might not have email format for the user login as a mandatory process. Please suggest if there is any other way to create users with out email format.--Anjali
Build a Tool for Data Analysis
I recently wrote two articles about GoodData.CN where I am demonstrating how to use it with a real use-case. In the first article, you will learn how to connect GoodData.CN to your PostgreSQL database and how to scan that database in GoodData.CN. The second article is about data visualizations and embedding them into a web application.The first part is available here: Build a Tool for Data Analysis — Connect Data.The second part is available here: Build a Tool for Data Analysis — Data Visualizations.
Using Gray Pages with GoodData Cloud
The gray pages seem pretty useful. In some cases, it appears that there are things that can only be accomplished using the gray pages, such as disabling the default dashboard date filter.My team is using GoodData Cloud, but from what I can tell gray pages only seem to be accessible if you are using GoodData Platform. I haven’t seen this explicitly mentioned in the docs anywhere, but could someone please confirm whether or not this is true?If it is true, what would be the reasoning for this? Is it on the roadmap to ever make the gray pages compatible with GoodData Cloud?
In release brick documentation(https://help.gooddata.com/doc/enterprise/en/workspace-and-user-administration/managing-workspaces-via-life-cycle-management/bricks/release-brick) we have one parameter called token inside we need PostgreSQL tokenCan anyone help me how we can get or generate token?
