  • Databricks:

    • Views with WHERE clauses that included a string with the SQL comment characters -- caused Immuta data source failures.
    • Aliases in view create statements were case-sensitive.
    • Creating a view in a scratch path database from a Snowflake data source resulted in an error: Error in SQL statement: NoSuchElementException: key not found: <masked column>
    • Using mlflow.spark.save_model and mlflow.spark.log_model was blocked by the Immuta Security Manager and other errors.
  • Databricks, Redshift, and Presto integrations: Attributes with two or more single quotes were not handled correctly.

  • Snowflake row access policy performance improvements.
  • Querying XML data from Oracle through the Query Engine did not work.
  • If users used to_char() in the Query Engine or through the Query Editor, the format string had illegal characters, which caused the query to fail.
  • Requesting access to a schema project with a large number of data sources (approximately ten thousand) caused 502 errors.
  • When creating data sources after an Alation catalog was configured, tags were not automatically added to the data sources.

    • Errors occur when using mlflow.spark.log_model on non-Machine Learning clusters.

    • Derived data source views don't display properly on the Overview tab.
    • Instances are unable to rollback from the Snowflake Enterprise Edition integration to the Snowflake Standard Edition integration if Snowflake SQL-backed data sources exist.
    • Hard deleting a Snowflake data source with native controls doesn't remove policies.
    • Users cannot create Snowflake derived data sources in the Snowflake Standard Edition integration.
  • Editing a schema project to a database that already exists fails.
