Vertica Component Release Notes

This page lists the main features added to the Vertica Component.

Feature Highlights

Version 2.0.4

Minor improvements and fixed issues

This version contains some minor improvements and fixed issues, which can be found in the complete changelog.

Version 2.0.3

Change Data Capture (CDC)

Multiple improvements have been performed to homogenize the usage of Change Data Capture (CDC) in the various Components.

Parameters have been homogenized, so that all Templates should now have the same CDC Parameters, with the same support of features.

Multiple fixes have also been performed to correct CDC issues. Refer to the changelog for the exact list of changes.

Version 2.0.2

Sample project

The component example project can now be imported directly in the "New" menu of the Project Explorer.

Version 2.0.1

Load File to Vertica (with copy)

New parameter xfieldSep

A new parameter 'xfieldSep' has been added.

It specifies the hexadecimal code of the Field Separator to be used in the temporary file imported into Vertica.

Examples: 08 = backspace, 09 = tab, 1F = ascii unit separator

this option is taken into acount only when 'Force Pre Transform File' is set to 'true'. The default value is 08.

INTEGRATION Vertica

Fix creation of temporary integration table when "usingExportObject" is used

Some issues were encountered when using "usingExportObject" mode for "Create Integration Table Like Target Table" parameter with some Vertica database versions.

Queries have been fixed for this mode to work as expected with the different Vertica database versions.

Fix expressions used for generating a row id

Expressions used in the various queries to create a row id have been fixed to use the correct syntax.

They were using an order by expression which was not supported by Vertica and not useful.

Fix expression used for projection name

Expression used when creating projections is now using properly the temporary work name.
