  • Recalculating fingerprint against Snowflake, Oracle, and DB2 tables fails.
  • Immuta logging failing to pick up X-Forward-For.
  • IE/Edge is missing the Immuta icon.

v2.5.0 Migration Notes

  • Customers cannot upgrade directly from v2.1.0 to v2.5.0 if they have existing Hive or Impala data sources.
  • This version relies on Postgres 11 for the Query Engine. (RDS/Postgres 10 can still be used for bometadata.)
  • This version relies on Node 8.13.x.
  • The Partition Service needs to have immuta.system.api.key configured. In CDH that configuration should be added (for both the 1.6 and 2.x Partition Service) under Immuta Spark 1.6 Partition Server Advanced Configuration Snippet (Safety Valve) for context/generator.xml and Immuta Spark 2 Partition Server Advanced Configuration Snippet (Safety Valve) for session/generator.xml.
  • Existing Spark jobs that have configuration overrides for spark.executor.extraJavaOptions and/or spark.driver.extraJavaOptions need to be updated to include the following configuration key/value pair for both spark.executor.extraJavaOptions and spark.driver.extraJavaOptions: -Dimmuta.spark.encryption.fnr.class=com.immuta.spark.encryption.fnr.ImmutaFNRService . No changes are needed for any jobs that don't specifically modify those two configuration values.
