Toad Intelligence Central 3.3 - Whats New

New in This Release

New in This Release

Tuesday, March 28, 2017

 

This release of Toad Intelligence Central includes the following new features and enhancements.

Toad Data Point

Enter Variable Value

For views and Automation scripts that were published with variables, Intelligence Central prompts the user for values at run time.

Views with Variables

This release of Toad Intelligence Central includes an exciting new feature. When you download or filter a published View in which the defining SQL contains a variable*, Intelligence Central prompts you for the variable value. This is useful as it allows data consumers to provide their own variable value at the time they execute the View. Data consumers have a choice to use the default value or enter a new value.

The new value entered applies to the current download only. Each variable has a default value. The default value is specified by the publisher at the time of publishing and can be modified through Toad Data Point.

Note: *This feature is only available for Views published from Toad Data Point 4.2 or later. The associated Toad Data Point features—the ability to publish a View containing a variable and the ability to modify the default value—are available only in Toad Data Point 4.2 or later.

Automation Scripts with Variables

When you manually run a published Automation script** which executes SQL containing a variable, Intelligence Central prompts you to enter a variable value. You can enter a new value or use the default. The value entered is used in the current manual execution only .

  • For scheduled scripts, Intelligence Central uses the default value. The default value is specified by the publisher at the time of publishing and can be modified through Toad Data Point.

Highlights:

  • The default value is used by scheduled scripts, eliminating the need to prompt for a variable value.
  • You can modify the default value for a published script at any time through Toad Data Point (View Details | Variables).
  • You can manually run an Automation script through the Web interface and supply a new variable value (for the current run only).

Note: **The Enter Variables feature is only enabled for Automation scripts published from Toad Data Point 4.2 or later. The associated Toad Data Point feature—the ability to modify the default value for a published Automation script— is available only in Toad Data Point 4.2 or later.

Filtering Data

You will find the following new enhancements when filtering data to download from a data object (view, snapshot, dataset).

OR Operator

  • When creating a filter with more than one condition, you can now apply the OR operation.

Quick Filtering and Data Preview

In the data preview window, you can quickly filter a column by entering a value in the text box below the column header. Now the filter is not applied until after you press ENTER, resulting in a smoother data preview process.

To quickly filter a column in the preview window

  1. Enter a value in the text box below the column header.
  2. Press ENTER. The filter is applied to the sample data.

Email Notifications and Error Alerts

This release of Intelligence Central includes several new enhancements that provide added functionality in the area of email notifications and error alerts.

Add Email Address for Administrator (root) User

You can now specify an email address for the Administrator (root) account. Only the Administrator (root) user can add the email address for this account. To add an email address for the Administrator (root), do the following:

  1. In the Web interface select Administration | Users.
  2. Select the Administrator (root) user to display the account details in the right pane.
  3. Click Edit in the Details pane. Then enter an email address in the Details dialog.

Receive Error Alerts

You can now receive an error alert by email when Automation script execution or snapshot refresh fails for an object you own or manage. To enable error alerts for your user account, do the following:

  1. In the Web interface, go to Administration | Users.
  2. Select your user name.
  3. Click Change subscription in the Details pane.
  4. Select Error Alerts.

Unsubscribe to the Personal Digest through the Web Interface

Users can now subscribe/unsubscribe to the Personal Digest email through the Web interface. In the previous release, a user could only unsubscribe through their Personal Digest email (using the Unsubscribe link).

  1. In the Web interface, go to Administration | Users.
  2. Select your user name.
  3. Click Change subscription in the Details pane.
  4. Clear the Personal Digest check box to unsubscribe.

New Intelligence Central Admin Daily/Weekly Digest Email

Users with the Administrator role can now receive an Intelligence Central Admin Digest email. This email is similar to the Personal Daily Digest, but contains information relevant to the Administrator role. Users can elect to receive this digest on a daily or a weekly basis.

  • To enable the Admin Digest for an Administrator user, in the Web interface select Administration | Users. Select a user and then click Change subscription in the Details pane. In the Email Subscription dialog, select Admin Digest (Daily) or Admin Digest (Weekly) or both. If both check boxes are cleared, this user receives no Admin Digest.
  • The Admin Digest provides a summary of daily or weekly activities relevant to Administrator users.
  • Note: Email Notifications must be enabled on the Intelligence Central server before the Admin Digest can be sent to Administrator users.

Administrator Role Can Configure Email Notifications for Other Users

Users with the Administrator role can subscribe/unsubscribe other users to the email notifications, which include:

  • Personal Digest
  • Error Alerts
  • Daily Admin Digest
  • Weekly Admin Digest
