Immuta v2021.2.0 Release Notes

Immuta v2021.2.0

Immuta version 2021.2.0 was released May 28, 2021.

v2021.2.0 New Features

General Availability

Additional Feature in Patch Release

The 2021.2.1 release includes a Public Preview of the dbt Cloud Integration.

  • Audit Native SQL Queries in Spark This feature captures native SQL queries executed in Databricks (which are already captured natively by Databricks) as audit log entries in Immuta, allowing users to simplify and centralize their data governance and auditing practices.

  • Google Cloud Storage for Databricks (WRITE support): Immuta supports Google Storage as the backing storage for Databricks and Databricks project workspaces.

  • S3 Write Support with Assumed Role (Databricks only): Users can write data to an S3 bucket in another AWS account, using a role that is assumed by the instance role applied to the current cluster. Note: Users can only write to S3 by using Immuta project workspaces with Databricks.

  • Policy as Code: The Immuta CLI: This feature provides a new way to communicate with the Immuta application, allowing scriptable configuration of an Immuta instance and users to configure Policy as Code. Inspired by tools like AWS CLI and Terraform, this feature extends this type of developer experience to Immuta customers when creating policies.

  • Snowflake Partner Connect Integration: Immuta’s integration with Partner Connect allows users to select data that already exists in Snowflake and make it available in a free trial instance of Immuta, without having to set up the native integration manually. Instead, Snowflake passes the required information to Immuta to configure the native integration. Users will automatically own the data sources added during seeding when they begin their free trial. This integration is a convenient way for users to try out Immuta and Snowflake.

  • Support for Databricks Runtime 8

  • Support for Multiple Native Snowflake Instances: This feature allows customers to configure multiple native Snowflake integrations in one Immuta instance.

  • Native Azure Synapse Analytics Integration

v2021.2.0 Bug Fixes

  • Fixed token expiration that was causing issues in Databricks.
  • Fixed API tags, which were clearing out Sensitive Data Discovery tags.
  • In Databricks, where clauses that didn't reference a column in the table were sometimes not applied.
  • Changed schema projects to be private by default.
  • Disabling one Global Policy on a column would sometimes disable all Global Policies on that column.
  • Removed some overhead in Databricks queries caused by the SecurityManager initialization.
  • Removed more CVEs.

v2021.2.0 Migration Notes

  • All customers must be on Immuta version 2020.2 or greater to migrate directly to 2021.2.

  • Postgres has been upgraded to Postgres 12, so you must do a back-up and restore upgrade. All software that connects to the Query Engine must be using an update to the Postgres driver that supports Postgres 12.

  • The Immuta Helm chart needs to be updated to 4.6.7 or newer.

  • immuta-snd needs to be updated to 1.3.1.

  • BREAKING: @hasAuthorization and @authorizations are no longer supported in policies (deprecated in 2.7). Users must use @hasAttribute and @attributes instead.

  • BREAKING: If customers were using V2 of the API to create a project with a native Snowflake workspace, they must now pass hostname under the config to specify the instance of Snowflake that the workspace should be created in, since Immuta now supports multiple Snowflake instances.

v2021.2.0 Deprecation Notice

  • PostgreSQL 11 was deprecated in Immuta v2021.1.0 and has been removed in Immuta v2021.2.0. Consequently, all customers need to upgrade Tableau.
