CloverETL 4.5 adds another addition to the Salesforce connector family—the Salesforce Wave Writer. It also introduces enhancements to the Event Listeners UI in the Server Console and adds options for restarting jobs from the Executions History view with parameters.
This release does a bit of housekeeping too, removing now obsolete CTL1 support and backquote inline code. Please check the Compatibility section for more details.
We're introducing new Salesforce Wave writer—a simple solution for loading data into Wave Analytics/BI platform. You can create new datasets and append or update/insert data into existing ones.
We've redesigned the user interface for Event Listeners in Server. It has been consolidated into a single module listing all listeners present in the system for a better overview.
You can now restart a job on a Server (useful for restarting failed executions) from the Executions History tab. You can also change the parameters of the job (graph or jobflow) before restarting it.
In the Executions History view in the Server Console, you have the option to either restart a job using the same parameters it was first executed with or manually change the parameters before restarting the job.
Imagine a file listener starting a job. It passes a file path to the job as a parameter. Restarting such a job requires knowing the exact parameters that the listener provided. With this update, you can easily reuse the starting parameters, modify them if you need to, and restart the job.
We are completely removing CTL1 code from CloverETL.
This obsolete predecessor of the current CTL2 (CTL2 was introduced in CloverETL 3.0 in 2010) has long been deprecated, so we've now moved to completely remove it from the product.
With this change, inline expressions in backquotes (e.g. "filename-`today()`.csv") are being removed as well, as this syntax caused numerous issues. Instead, use dynamic parameters for on-the-fly calculations.
We're doing some long-awaited housekeeping in this release. None of the changes should affect your everyday use of CloverETL. However, we recommend going over the Compatibility section of this release.
