Database Historical Sync Progresslink
You can now monitor your database historical sync progress in the status tab of your Fivetran dashboard. The status tab displays the table that is currently being synced as well as the number of tables that have finished syncing. This feature is available for all our database connectors.
Fivetran UK and Canada Serverslink
We have added new servers in Canada and the United Kingdom (UK).
When configuring your destination, you can now select these regions as the data processing location. The connectors configured in a destination run in their designated regions, meaning that your data doesn’t leave our region-specific servers during processing. For example, if you configure your connectors to use our UK servers, your connector data will not leave the UK during processing.
See our documentation for more information.
Now we calculate the
_fivetran_end column value as the time when the record was deleted (the delete timestamp) minus one millisecond. Previously we calculated the column value as the time when the record was deleted (the delete timestamp).
Box is an online file sharing and cloud content management service for businesses.
We have added two new tables,
USER_ALIAS. See Braze’s Export User endpoint documentation for more information.
We have also created foreign key relationships to the following tables that reference the primary key column
user_id of the
We now support the Jira Service Management (formerly Jira Service Desk) Organization fields in Jira issues. To sync fields of this type for all issues, re-sync your connector.
We have added a new column,
mac_address, to the
We have added two new fields,
mkt_network, to the
_EVENT table to support Campaign attribution enrichment 1-0-1. The two fields store the click ID and the network responsible for the click respectively.
We now support partitioning for update queries. Now, during an update operation, if your partition key is based on the destination primary key, we scan only the corresponding partitions instead of scanning the full table. We are gradually rolling out this new feature to all existing customers. If you’d like to enable this feature on your destination, contact our support team.
We have upgraded our Campaign Manager connector from version 3.3 to 3.4 of the Campaign Manager API.
Read Google’s documentation to learn about recent Campaign Manager API changes.
We now select the mandatory dimensions just after connector creation. Previously, setup tests sometimes failed because mandatory dimensions weren’t selected. Now, we handle the selection automatically. The only exception is the
advertiser dimension for the
REACH report type - you need to select it manually.
Facebook Ad Insightslink
You can now opt to specify no attribution window or select a single attribution window when you configure the connector. Depending on your requirements, set both or either of the Click Attribution Window and View Attribution Window fields to NONE in the connector setup form.
We have a fixed a bug that caused Int32 and Int64 values to sync incorrectly from Parquet files. Previously, our syncs did not include the scale of these values (for example, a value of
85.00 was loaded into the destination as
8500000). We now scale these values correctly. If any of your Int32 or Int64 values were incorrectly synced prior to this fix, you will need to initiate a re-sync to correct them.
Now we perform a table re-sync whenever a field is added to or removed from a custom table. Previously, we only used incremental and rollback syncs, which may have caused incorrect metrics values being displayed in the table and unwanted report segmentation inconsistencies when the field set was changed.
Now the Google Analytics connector supports prebuilt reports. The prebuilt reports have a predefined set of dimensions and metrics. See the full list of prebuilt reports.
Google Search Consolelink
The Google Search Console connector now supports the priority-first sync. The Google Search Console’s priority-first sync fetches the most recent 30 days of data from the reporting tables. To learn more, see our priority-first sync documentation.
We have made our syncs more resilient to server failures from Greenhouse. If we can’t connect to Greenhouse’s servers during our syncs, we now retry the connection three times before the sync fails. Previously, our syncs failed immediately.
We now support future timestamp values in the
ENGAGEMENT_MEETING table. If you previously synced future timestamp values, re-sync the table to ensure data integrity.
We have improved how we sync historical changes for the standard issue array fields
versions. We now write the actual values for each historical change, making the table much easier to use. The Jira API delivers empty values if part of the value is removed, and previously we just wrote that empty value.
We have improved incremental sync performance for databases which have many changes in collections that are not included in the sync.
We have added a slow sync notification on the connector dashboard for the re-imported tables. We now notify you about a sync’s start and completion for the tables that we re-import once a week and the tables you manually re-sync.
We now sync unparsable DATERANGE values (such as
10000-01-01) to the destination as null values.
We now mask the characters you enter in the API Key field of the connector setup form. We have changed the API Key field type from
PasswordField to improve security.
We have added support for
marketing.read API permission for our SendGrid Legacy accounts. You can now retrieve data from both legacy and new SendGrid marketing campaigns. We have also enabled backward compatibility. You can execute the queries designed for the old schema without any modifications on the new data.
We have added support for
marketing_campaign.read API permission for our SendGrid New accounts. You can now retrieve data from both new and legacy SendGrid marketing campaigns.
We now support two new fields,
true_tstamp. See Snowplow Analytics’ documentation for more information about timestamps.
We have replaced the
dvce_tstamp field with the
dvce_created_tstamp field. We will deprecate the replaced field after January 10, 2021. Be sure to update your queries with the new field name before we remove the old field.
We have modified our sync strategy to skip a table’s rows if the
fact_conversion_counting column is empty. We sync the skipped rows after the
fact_conversion_counting column is populated with the final values to avoid duplicate data rows.
REST API Improvementslink
Displaying patch settings in standard config responselink
We have made changes to all public API endpoints that return the table and column configs as a response. Now you can see patch settings information for tables and columns in the response. It may help you understand whether you are allowed to enable or disable sync for them in the connector standard config. See the documentation for the following endpoints to learn more about the patch settings:
- Retrieve a Connector Schema Config
- Retrieve source table columns config
- Reload a connector schema config
- Modify a connector schema config
- Modify a connector database schema config
- Modify a connector table config
- Modify a connector column config
