You are looking at documentation for an older release.
Switch to the documentation for Dataedo 10.x (current).

Search in HTML export

One of the most requested features for exported documentation was search in HTML export.

We've now added a search bar checking object's schema, names and columns.

Cross documentation modules

Previously, objects could only be added to modules within their documentation.

To better support cross database environments, you can now add object to modules from any documentation in your repository.

You can add objects from different documentations as usual, by dragging them from the navigation tree, from object lists one by one or in groups or by choosing modules on the object's description page.

Materialized view support

In Dataedo 7, we're working on adding new object types which were not previously imported.

For Dataedo 7.0.4 beta we've added support for importing materialized views from Oracle and PostgreSQL. They will be visible in the Views folder with a new icon.

New table subtypes for user-defined tables

When creating a user-defined table you can now specify it's subtype. It will have a new icon and will be marked as that type during export.

User-defined table subtype

Manual table designer reworked

We've made improvements to how Add table and Design table windows work. They should now be more responsive and easier to use.

Design table

Bulk add columns now better deals with copied empty lines and we've added a short note explaining how to use it.

ERD improvements

We've made multiple improvements to our ERDs.

Add related tables

You can now add all objects related to a node on an ERD by right clicking it and choosing Add related tables:

Hint related tables

Objects related to selected tables on an ERD are now displayed in bold in Available entities list.

Adding new table

Adding a new manual table on ERD screen now also adds it to the module.

Support for Amazon Aurora PostgreSQL

Until now in schema import now we used the same option for PostgreSQL and Amazon Aurora PostgreSQL.

In 7.0.4 you can choose the exact DBMS you're actually using.

Improvements and bug fixes


  • Solved multiple errors that could lead to application crashing.
  • Shortened repository upgrade time.
  • Altered relations now properly display their current columns.
  • Object names can now be copied by using ctrl+c.
  • Previously, descriptions equal to object name did not count for the progress bar. Now they count the same as any described objects.
  • DBMSes specialized in data warhousing (Redshift, Snowflake, Azure Data Warehouse) are no longer available in Lite (free) edition.


  • Previously, users with correct database privileges had to have license assigned through Administration Console to connect to a repository. Now they log in with an automatic Lite license.
