Dataedo 10.4 is coming with a few important changes.
Report Catalog and Power BI
The report is a new type of object next to the Business Glossary and Database. Reporting is an object that contains data sets and visualizations. Check out more about existing object types in Dataedo.
In version 10.4 this feature is coming with the support of the Power BI connector so that you can automatically extract metadata of and document your reports.
Reports and visualizations details
Automatic object-level lineage
Column-level lineage will be developed in future versions.

Reference Data Management
We created a new type of object – Lookup. Lookups allow you to describe values stored in objects’ columns. They are also known as reference data, lists of values, or dictionaries. You can manually create new lookups or create them automatically based on the values in your database.
Read more about that in our Reference Data Management section of the documentation.
Automated column-level lineage for views
For views in the SQL Server and Azure SQL, you can now create an automatic lineage based on the view script.
Future versions will also support Snowflake, Oracle, PostgreSQL, Amazon Redshift, MySQL, and MariaDB.
FK Relationship tester
When adding a new relationship you can test its correctnes automatically (we run tests both on metadata and on real data in the database).
FK tester is supported for: SQL Server, Azure SQL and Snowflake.
Future versions will also support Oracle, PostgreSQL, Amazon Redshift, MySQL, and MariaDB.
Redesign of Web Catalog
We've made effort to make Web Catalog better and easier for you to use. The most important changes are:
- Navigation received UX improvement.
- New rich text editor. Read more about editing in Web Catalog
