Toad® Intelligence Central enables enterprise users to be far more productive with their tools including Toad Data Point by centralizing automation workflows, accessing data directly, collaborating and sharing on datasets, queries and Toad files and providing a secure and established way to manage your data sprawl.
AUTOMATE - Toad users can schedule the regular automated execution of Toad Data Point automation scripts on Toad Intelligence Central.
ACCESS - Toad users can access Toad files and basic data files published to Toad Intelligence Central that have been shared with them. An additional data connectivity license extends Toad Intelligence Central to work across a wide range of data stores including relational database models, data warehouses, No SQL and Business Intelligence data sources like OBIEE and SAP®.
SECURE - Toad Intelligence Central provides a centrally managed, secure, stable and accessible system.
Distributions of Toad Intelligence Central include a Web Server for administrative and general user access. In addition, Toad Data Point and other collaborative Toad products can directly access Toad Intelligence Central. Data on Toad Intelligence Central can be accessed via a third party product such as Tableau for further data processing and visualization.
A valid data connectivity license supports the following Business Intelligence Data Sources.
Intelligence Central 6.1.2 is a minor release, with enhanced features and functionality. See New features.
This release of Toad Intelligence Central includes new features and enhancements.
Until now, the installation process allowed the user to set the location for storing Toad Intelligence Central data files which are used when running Automation Scripts or Workbooks. However, the related temporary files used to be stored in a specific location C:\ProgramData\Quest Software\AutomationScript without an option to change it.
This limitation has been resolved by allowing the user to set a custom location for the Automation Script and Workbook temporary folder.
Under the Administration -> Server -> Settings tab, the Automation Script and Workbook folder path option is added. By default, this location is set to C:\ProgramData\Quest Software, but can now be edited.
Note: When the path to the temporary folder is changed, the already present sub-folders on the previous location will not be copied to the new location but will be recreated when an automation script or Workbook file is run.
Limitation for the Automation Script and Workbook temporary folder
This feature only supports file paths that are accessible on the local file system (C:\, D:\, etc.). Network paths (e.g., \\NetworkFolder\Subfolder) or mapped network drives are not supported.
See Resolved issues for enhancements and resolved issues in this release of Toad Intelligence Central.
Integration with Toad for Oracle has been discontinued. The Toad for Oracle Code Quality, Code Analysis, Code Tester, Team Coding, and DB Health Check pages have been removed in Toad Intelligence Central 5.0. Beginning with Toad for Oracle 13.1, you can no longer connect to Toad Intelligence Central and you cannot publish scripts, files, Code Analysis results, and other resources to a Toad Intelligence Central server.
The Admin Console. Beginning with Toad Intelligence Central 4.3, the Admin Console is no longer required and is not included in the Toad Intelligence Central installation. The administrative functionality of the Admin Console is now superseded by the Web Server (Web Console). The activity of mapping/editing data objects is best performed through Toad Data Point.
After installing Intelligence Central 4.3 or later, it is recommended that you uninstall any earlier version of the Admin Console as some functionality may no longer be supported.
Authentication Keys for Views. Beginning with Toad Intelligence Central 4.3, a view can now have only one type of key, personal or shared. This change is designed to simplify the process of Authentication. If you are upgrading from Intelligence Central 3.3 or earlier, please see the Upgrade section of the Toad Intelligence Central Deployment Guide for more information.
Toad for Oracle Installation. Beginning with Toad Intelligence Central 4.3, Toad for Oracle is no longer installed as part of the Toad Intelligence Central installation.
Run in Debug Mode. In Toad Intelligence Central 3.3, the Run in debug mode option was removed from the Web console (Web server). It is no longer necessary to enable/disable debug mode. Debug-level information is always logged and automatically included in the support bundle. This release also includes improved logging strategies and archiving methods.
The use of SSL 3.0, TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1 has been discontinued.
The use of RC4 cipher has been discontinued.
The use of SWEET32 medium strength cipher has been discontinued.
The following is a list of issues addressed and enhancements implemented in this release of Intelligence Central.
|Resolved Issue||Issue ID|
|A scheduled run for a workbook file cannot be activated on a dedicated TIC server||TIC-14230|
|"Server does not support secure connections" error is encountered if the "Use TLS/SSL" option is checked when configuring the SMTP Mail Server on Toad Intelligence Central||TIC-14158|
Republishing an automation script or workbook file can only be done if the Overwrite option is checked. When that option is checked and the publishing is done, all the information related to the previous runs of that object as well as the correlating log files will be preserved.
Previously, we checked the ''hanging'' scripts (scripts whose execution time is longer than usual - defined by the threshold) every 24 hours. Now the time interval for the "Force kill hanging Automation Scripts" option has been changed to 1 hour.
In this way, we notify the user as soon as possible that the automation script failed and leave the user the possibility to check why it happened and run it again if needed.
