Status indicators on organization profile pages

Status indicators, which include helpful tooltip hints when you hover, are available in many parts of the application such as search and the newsfeed. They provide quick, at-a-glance visibility of the quality, certification, or governance status around data or analysis resources. They are now also available on organization profile pages as well.


Metrics update: Feb 25, 2021

For enterprise customers, the following updated metrics have been released to your Usage and Governance Reporting (ddw-metrics-*) dataset. This was noted as coming soon here.

Events - Pageviews - Last 90 Days: This table now includes all types of pageviews, whereas previously it was filtered to only include dataset and project views. In addition, the window has been extended from 30 to 90 days.

Events - Queries: This new table is a detailed audit of query events. This was previously already available for multi-tenant customers. Going forward, it will also be available for single-tenant or virtual private customers. More details are included in the data dictionary markdown file. 

Resources - Datasets: This table contains a new column called “notificationsEmail” which includes any additional email address associated with the notifications for the dataset, as set in the dataset settings.

Visits - New Users By Month: This table logic has been updated to be consistent with other metrics, namely Visits - Unique Visitors To Date and Visits - Unique Visitors - All Time List.

February 2021 monthly product update

Here is a roundup of some of the key features we released last month, January 2021 -- broader resource support for recently viewed resources and auto suggestions from the search bar, collection search filter/facet, collection management API, and enhanced SQL support for windowed aggregations.

Bulk editing collection resources

We've been rolling out a series of features to make working with collections easier and more intuitive on data.world. In case you missed it, here a few recent collections related updates:

  1. New Collection Management API
  2. Quick Collection Creation
  3. Editing Resource Collections
  4. Filtering Collections In Search

Most recently, we've released bulk editing collections, which allows you to quickly manage a large number of resources by adding and removing them from collections with just a few clicks.

New Dataset Sync Notifications

data.world now sends 2 additional webhooks: Dataset Sync Failure and Dataset Sync Recovery Success

When a dataset within your org fails to sync, data.world will immediately send a webhook message to the configured URL with details about the failure, including error code and error messages from the downstream source.

With those sync failure details, you could configure a ticket to be created in your ticketing system, trigger an alert for a dev-ops team, or simply just make the team aware of the issue.

Natively, data.world will format the webhook payload to post messages in Slack when it recognizes the configured webhook is Slack, which is shown in the demo video below.

Technical Details

syncTask.status.success is triggered only after the recovery from a failure. 

Example payload, in JSON:

{
  "datasetid": "sync-demo",
  "event": {
    "type": "SUCCESS",
    "task": "state_table.csv",
    "created": "2021-02-04T06:37:06.936Z"
  },
  "eventType": "syncTask.status.success",
  "resourceUrl": "https://data.world/texas-whiskey/sync-demo/file/state_table.csv",
  "resourceType": "URL",
  "resourceOwner": "texas-whiskey"
}

 syncTask.status.failure is triggered on the first failure for that file. When it recovers, data.world will send one syncTask.status.success

Example payload, in JSON:

{
  "datasetid": "sync-demo",
  "event": {
    "type": "FAILURE",
    "task": "state_table.csv",
    "created": "2021-02-04T06:35:17.945Z",
    "error": "HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found"
  },
  "eventType": "syncTask.status.failure",
  "resourceUrl": "https://data.world/texas-whiskey/sync-demo/file/state_table.csv",
  "resourceType": "URL",
  "resourceOwner": "texas-whiskey"
