Changelog - 4.3.1

Ramya Priya Updated by Ramya Priya

Launching 4.3.1! We're excited to introduce impactful enhancements and fixes in this version, including SmartSelect, the ability to specify available disk storage, and SAML authentication for embedded components. Dive in to know more!

๐Ÿš€ New features

SmartSelect - Auto-selecting Business Views

We're excited to introduce SmartSelect, which is designed to simplify your search experience in Tellius. SmartSelect eliminates the need to select a Business View (BV) before querying in Search. It intuitively identifies the best-fit BV based on your query's context, streamlining the search process. With this new feature, you can now effortlessly type your questions into Tellius Search, knowing that Tellius will intelligently navigate through vast datasets to bring you precise results.ย 

๐Ÿ“ˆ Enhancements

Disk storage management for job execution

Tellius provides control over job execution with the ability to set specific disk storage limits. Under Settings --> Application Settings --> Data, users can specify the limit allowed (by default, it is 90). Prior to initiating any job, the system now proactively verifies available disk space against the specified thresholds. If the available space surpasses the specified limit, the job will not begin, thus avoiding potential system overload. In such event of a job not starting due to storage constraints, the following reason will be displayed in the Notifications: "Insufficient physical space. Threshold of n% used space was crossed." This feature helps maintain optimal system performance.

Displaying the predicted column in explainable AI charts

In Vizpads, the explainable AI chart now includes the column used for prediction at the top, providing more clarity and understanding of the model's decision-making process. Next to Prediction and Accuracy, Tellius will display the column that is being used for prediction, at the top of the chart.

MongoDB connection in Spark

We've significantly improved the handling of MongoDB connections within Spark by introducing a caching layer. This layer manages data flow between Spark and MongoDB. As a result, repetitive data access tasks are greatly optimized, reducing the workload on both the Spark and MongoDB systems. Users will experience faster data processing speeds, quicker responses, and an overall improvement in data analysis tasks.

Our latest update significantly improves the search functionality by making it more intuitive and natural. Users no longer need to rely on qualifier words such as "in", "by", "for" etc., simplifying the search process and making it more user-friendly.

Improved connection handling with exponential backoff

To improve how Tellius reconnects when there are connection issues, weโ€™ve implemented an exponential backoff strategy. Now, instead of trying to reconnect right away many times, which could slow down your browser, we space out the retries. This means fewer attempts in a short time, reducing the load on your browser and leading to a more reliable connection. With this update, you can expect smoother interactions with the platform without the interruptions of repeated connection attempts.

SAML authentication redirection for embedded content

We have improved the handling of invalid tokens in embedded scenarios, now redirecting users to the originally intended page in case of SAML login issues. Previously, invalid tokens could disrupt the flow, leaving users at a dead end. Now, if there's an issue with authentication tokens, users are seamlessly redirected back to the page they were initially trying to access. This ensures that users are not left stranded due to login problems but are guided back to their intended destination after addressing any authentication issues.

Automatic SAML authentication

The latest update brings integration of SAML authentication for our embedded features, including Search, Vizpad, and Assistant. Users are automatically authenticated using SAML, and can now enjoy a smoother authentication process when accessing embedded elements like Search, Vizpad, and Assistant, without the interruptions of manual logins, maintaining a consistent and efficient workflow.
