4.24 Patch

424patches8799 Latest
  • Enhanced the Teradata Execute Snap by adding a new field, Advanced options, which extends support with microsecond precision for TIMESTAMP data type.
  • Fixed an issue in the TPT Load Snap where the Snap failed to load data into the table while creating an output.
  • Fixed an issue with the TPT Load Snap wherein now a null value is loaded as null and empty string is loaded as empty string.

    • This fix may cause existing pipelines to fail if empty string values are expected to be loaded as null.

    • Following are the new configurations:

      • VARCHAR QuotedData= Optional

      • VARCHAR OpenQuoteMark= \”

      • VARCHAR NullColumns= Yes

4.24main8556
Stable

Enhanced the Teradata Select Snap to return only the selected output fields or columns in the output schema (second output view) using the Fetch Output Fields In Schema check box. If the Output Fields field is empty all the columns are visible.

4.23main7430
 
Stable

Fixes the multi-line value issue and issue in the TPT Load Snap where the Snap writes null for both an empty string and null values in the input data. The fix for this issue was to add the following three lines in the script and wrap all the values in double quotes unless they are null while writing the input data into a temp CSV file. 
VARCHAR QuotedData = 'Optional',
VARCHAR OpenQuoteMark = '\"'
VARCHAR NullColumns = 'Yes'

This fix may cause existing pipelines to fail if empty string values are expected to be loaded as null.

  • Fixed an issue with the Teradata Execute Snap wherein the Snap would send the input document to the output view even if the Pass through field is not selected in the Snap configuration. With this fix, the Snap sends the input document to the output view, under the key original, only if you select the Pass through field.
  • Added the Snap Execution field to all Standard-mode Snaps. In some Snaps, this field replaces the existing Execute during preview check box.
