Release notes 24.1

Maria Pulawska - Dataedo Team Maria Pulawska 5th February, 2024

With the new year we're planning on releasing more often, therefore we're happy to present you with version 24.1 and what we managed to deliver!


Statuses is a foundation for a big topic: Workflows. "Workflows" is umbrella name for a family of features that will help you manage authoring of your documentation. In this version we focused on building the foundation of the draft/published system, which we plan to expand in the upcoming versions.

From now on Dataedo allows to set a status for objects from a pre-defined list available in your repository. This enhancement (inspired by Jira) serves to provide users with the ability to accurately determine the progress phase of specific object's documentation. Setting an object's status is at the moment available only for manual objects: Domains and its Areas, all types of Glossary Entries (terms, policies, etc) and Lookups. The status is viewed and can be changed in both Dataedo Portal and Desktop.

Steward Hub is a suite of features crafted to assist Data Stewards in their daily tasks. With the aid of built-in rules the Steward Hub recommends areas of improvement, suggesting documentation fill-ins and potential entity links.

  • Creating new Terms,
  • Creating new Lookups,
  • Adding links between Lookups and Columns,
  • Adding links between Lookups and Terms,
  • Adding values to empty Lookups,
  • Reviewing Lookups' values,

Data lineage from stored procedures

Dataedo will automatically parse and extract data lineage from stored procedures you have defined in your database. Right now we support T-SQL dialect (SQLServer, Azure SQL, Synapse).

You can check out exact scope of this feature in a separate article.

New connectors

Databricks Unity Catalog

We introduced a Databricks metadata scanner through the Unity Catalog. It helps you scan, document, and understand your Databricks instance with a few clicks. You can read more details on the connectivity and connector scope in the separate article.

Import with copy&paste

Interface Tables are a way of exchanging data with the Dataedo Repository and any other external database through a defined set of tables used in cases when direct support for the data source is not available.

From 24.1 it is possible to paste data into a grid in Desktop app and then import it. Additionally, we introduced support for importing datasets through Interface Tables Reporting.

  • Data lineage from SQL Tasks (with parsing) and FTP Tasks.

Microsoft Dynamics365

  • Importing forms and their fields.

Import changes for structures

You can now import changes for structs-like objects (JSON, EXCEL, XML, etc.). Dataedo will keep track of those changes with a schema change tracking module. Image title Image title


  • Updated the connector to support newer versions of Neo4j. Now all versions up to 5.13 are supported.

Dataedo Portal


This release we made a first step into improving our Data Lineage. We refreshed the UI, enhanced UX, sped up loading by fetching another inflows and outflows on demand and we made it easier to analyze via displaying only relevant context of the object. Both object and column lineage is now available for most of the objects - containers like databases are yet to come.

Some features of the Dataedo Portal are available depending on the license type you have. In Dataedo 24.1 the following features are available only with Dataedo Plan:

  • Statuses,
  • Business Domains and Areas,
  • AI Autodocumentation.

To unlock all the features available for your plan an admin needs to provide online or offline license in the settings. Read more about the licenses in our dedicated licenses article.

New authentication options

We introduced new options for the end-users to log in into the Portal and we changed the layout on the login screen. Right now an Admin is able to select one login method to be a default one, all other enabled login methods are visible below and available just like they were before.

Additionally, Admin can configure login via AzureAD oAuth2, Google oAuth2 and an email with one-time access code.

The first two options are rather clear, the latter requires SMTP server to be configured in Dataedo. Once this option is selected by a user, they need to provide their email address and an email is sent with an access-code to enter in the Portal.

Keep in mind that at the moment there are no limitations regarding the email domain, meaning if you enable this login method, everyone with the link to your portal will be able to access it.

  • German (Austria),
  • German (Germany),
  • German (Switzerland),

In 24.1 we moved the Administration Console from a separate application into Dataedo Desktop. Managing users will now be available from the settings tab in the navigation ribbon in Desktop. The functionality remains the same, you can grant users permissions to access Desktop here. Additionally, users can authenticate via both SQL Server Authentication and Azure SQL Authentication.
