New CloudConnect Security Enhancements

Jiri Tobolka

We would like to share several security improvements with you. This will be released during the R100.6 on Tuesday April 29th.

Hadoop & JMS Reader components

To increase your security we are going to stop supporting following components in CloudConnect:

  • Hadoop Reader and Hadoop Connection
  • JMS Reader and JMS Connection

Running Custom Java code

Till today, you were able to run custom Java code and link external Java libraries to be used in your Data Loading Processes. This also won’t be supported since the Release 100.6 on Tuesday April 29th.

Re-deploy User Update

This is not all that we are going to improve. Another change will affect the Data Loading Processes deployment. If you re-deploy the Data Loading Process, the effective user (the user that the ETL executes under) of all related schedules is changed to the user that re-deployed the ETL process. This feature will be effective in the next two weeks. Follow up our channels (Twitter @gooddata_dev) to know the specific date.
