Known issues resolved

We report known issues in each release. Below is the list of the issues that have been resolved across the platform for this version.

Module Issue Reported in

ONE Desktop

ONE-23846: In some cases when working on ONE plans the server validation may expire after longer periods of time and users are not able to run remote execution etc.

Workaround: Disconnect and reconnect to the ONE Platform server to dispose of authentication tokens and create them again.


ONE Web Application

ONE-24055: It is possible to create new property filters without defining the target Property. This will not function, but validations are not working so no error is thrown.



ONE-24158: It is not possible to upgrade Oracle-based projects from version 12.x to 13.0-13.2 due to incompatibility in column naming.



ONE-24177: Parts of MDM Webapp will not work correctly when app server context path is used.


ONE Web Application

ONE-24745: Unable to add more than 10 catalog items to a monitoring project.



ONE Desktop

Pinning Favorite Items in ONE desktop

ONE Web Application

Restoring a Previous Version of an Entity

It is now possible to use the History tab of an entity to roll back changes made to that entity. To do this, select the required entity and navigate to the History tab. For the version you would like to restore, either expand the more options menu and select Revert to this version, or click on the version from the list to open it and select Revert to this version.

Copying Monitoring Project Configurations

When two or more monitoring projects should have a similar configuration, it is possible to import the configuration of one monitoring project to the new project, instead of configuring the new project from scratch. It is useful, for example, when you want to import configuration from testing to a production project. Configuration import will include:

  1. All checks (structure checks, anomaly detection, DQ checks)

  2. Invalid samples

  3. Reports structure

  4. Copy DQ filters

Adding a Purpose Tag

It is now possible to assign a custom tag, Purpose, to catalog items and monitoring projects.

By setting a purpose you can do the following:

  • Indicate the affiliation of the catalog item or monitoring project to a specific environment (development, test or production).

  • Indicate the affiliation of a catalog item and monitoring project to each other.

  • Indicate the relation of the similar tables with countries the data refers to (USA, UK, Germany…​).

Linking Catalog Items

Linked instances is used to link different instances of a catalog item, i.e. instances of the same catalog item with a different purpose. This will help when mapping catalog items during project configuration import. Click on the Link catalog item button to link the current item to one or multiple catalog items. Click on the Unlink from related items button to remove the selected item from any linked groups.

The Linked instances widget has been added to the Overview tab for catalog items.

Scheduler on Catalog Items

The Scheduler on catalog items allows you to schedule two types of events:

  1. Profiling

  2. DQ Evaluation

Both events can be scheduled on particular partitions, if the catalog item has any.

Filtering DQ Results by Attribute

It is possible to use attributes as a filter when searching DQ results. Filters let you view the results for a data source limited by a specific attribute. For example, in case of customer data, you might want to see data quality state by customer type or gender.

Using attributes with many unique values as a filter can impact performance.

Reasons for Invalidity in DQ Components

It is now possible to set reasons for the invalidity of a component according to a rule, by configuring Results on the Implementation tab of the component.

Web App Configuration

Available for power users only.

Displaying Entities on the Metadata Model Graph

It is now possible to display all the manually created single embedded entities on the Metadata Model Graph. Relationships between the entities, if any, are also displayed on the graph.

Application Validation Checks

It is now possible to to validate the state of the application in the Upgrade Center. The MD and system validations are predefined, however, you can configure which validations should be run. The results of the validation runs are displayed in Organization > Validations Runs, with suggestions on how to solve validation errors that arose, if any. For validation errors connected with Ancestors and Roles the in-app solution concerns the Metadata Model. For more information, see Application Validation Checks.

Canceling Jobs in Processing Center

You can use the Processing Center to see the status of jobs in the application, view scheduled jobs, and cancel running jobs. It only possible to delete jobs whilst they are still running: completed jobs cannot be canceled.

Configuring DQ Evaluation in Profiling Flow

It is now possible to configure whether automatic DQ evaluation is triggered with the profiling flow. To enable or disable DQ evaluation for the profiling flow, configure the profiling settings on the Profiling tab in Organization.
