Version 9.4.0.clπŸ”—

Version control and Git integration Beta
GUID mapping

If a TML file on your source environment contains GUIDs that don’t match the GUIDs on your destination environment, the version control APIs can now automatically handle the mapping of GUIDs when deploying the TML content.

For more information, see Git integration and version control.

Folder structure changes BREAKING CHANGE

The folder structure of the TML objects in the Git repository is modified in 9.4.0.cl. In earlier releases, the TML objects were stored in the object directory of the primary root folder, for example primary/liveboard. Starting from 9.4.0.cl, the TML objects will be stored in the object folder at the root level. ThoughtSpot will not migrate your existing TML files from primary/<object-dir> to the new folder structure. You must move these files to the respective object directory at the root level.

File naming convention BREAKING CHANGE

Starting from 9.4.0.cl, the TML files pushed to a Git branch from a ThoughtSpot instance are named in the <object-name>.<guid>.tml format. The earlier releases used the <guid>.<object-name>.tml naming convention for TML files. This change may break your current setup. We recommend that you reconfigure the Git connection on your ThoughtSpot instance and start using the version control feature from scratch.

Security settings enhancements for Orgs
CORS settings per Org

On multi-tenant clusters with Orgs, developers can now add a list of CORS hosts at the Org level. For more information, see Security Settings.

Block user access to non-embedded application pages

ThoughtSpot administrators and developers can now enable the Block non-embed full app access feature at the Org level.

For more information, see Security Settings.

Visual Embed SDK

For information about the new features and enhancements introduced in Visual Embed SDK version 1.23.0, see Visual Embed changelog.

REST API

For information about REST API enhancements, see REST API v1 changelog and REST API v2.0 changelog.

Version 9.3.0.clπŸ”—

Support for cookieless authentication

Developers can now enable cookieless authentication when embedding ThoughtSpot in their applications. The cookieless authentication method allows using a bearer token instead of session cookies when users interact with embedded content or initiate API requests. If the embedded content does not load from the same domain as your embedding application, and your Web browser does not allow third-party cookies, you can use Cookieless authentication in the Trusted authentication mode.

For more information, see Trusted authentication.

Idle sensing and APIs for managing cluster states

ThoughtSpot Cloud clusters support idle sensing in embedded deployments. With idle sensing enabled on your embedded ThoughtSpot instance, your instance becomes inactive if there is no active user session detected for a period of 120 minutes. You can restart an inactive cluster using API when required.

For more information, see Manage your cluster state.

Per-Org style customization

The Develop tab now allows customizing UI styles and layout at the Org level. To enable this feature on your multi-tenant instance, contact ThoughtSpot support.

Version control and Git integration via REST API Beta

You can now connect your ThoughtSpot instance to a Git repository and push commits from your application instance to a Git branch via REST API. With the Git integration Beta feature, ThoughtSpot provides the ability to integrate your application environment with Git workflows and deploy commits from a development instance to a production cluster.

For more information, see Version control with Git integration.

Visual Embed Playground enhancements

The Visual Embed developer Playground now includes a Try button in the preview panel. The Try button is attached to an event handler. You can register a host event and click Try to trigger an action on the embedded page in the Playground.

For more information, see Events reference.

Version 9.2.0.clπŸ”—

Per-Org secret key and tokens for Trusted authentication

ThoughtSpot now supports generating secret keys per Org. Org administrators can generate a secret key for trusted authentication in their Org context and allow their Org users to obtain authentication tokens using this secret key.

Starting from 9.2.0.cl, Org users require Org-specific authentication tokens issued for their user accounts when switching between Orgs. When generating an authentication token via REST API, make sure to request separate tokens for each Org context.

For more information, see Trusted authentication.

Custom styles

The 9.2.0.cl release introduces the following new variables for custom styling of the ThoughtSpot Search page:

  • --ts-var-search-auto-complete-font-color

  • --ts-var-search-auto-complete-subtext-font-color

  • --ts-var-answer-edit-panel-background-color

For more information, see Customize CSS.

GraphQL playground Beta

The Develop tab in the ThoughtSpot UI introduces the GraphQL playground to allow users to interact with GraphQL endpoints and run query and mutation operations. To enable this feature on your instance, contact ThoughtSpot Support.

For more information, see GraphQL Playground.

Runtime Parameter overrides

Embedded application users can now create Worksheet and Answer Parameters to optimize data queries. You can also adjust values and apply overrides at runtime on a Liveboard or Answer either via REST API or by appending Parameters to the query URL in the UI.

For more information, see Runtime Parameter overrides.

Link customization

You can now customize the navigation links in your app using the Generic link option in the Develop > Customization > Link settings page.

For more information, see Customize links.

Cross filters on Liveboard visualizations Early Access

ThoughtSpot now supports brushing and linking of visualizations on a Liveboard using cross filters. Cross filters allow you to present a coordinated view of a Liveboard by applying filters across all visualizations based on the current selection.

Note
The Cross filters feature is turned off by default. To enable this feature on your instance, contact your ThoughtSpot administrator.

To hide or disable the cross filter feature on an embedded instance, use the Action.CrossFilter and Action.RemoveCrossFilter parameters in the SDK. For more information, see Show or hide menu items and Action reference.

Contextual menu behaviorπŸ”—

By default, the contextual menu in ThoughtSpot application pages is set as right-click pop-up menu. Starting from 9.2.0.cl, you can set the contextual menu to trigger on left-click.

To trigger the contextual menu on left-click or right-click on an embedded app, you can use the contextMenuTrigger property in the Visual Embed SDK. In the following example, the contextual menu is configured to trigger on left-click.

contextMenuTrigger: "left-click"
contextMenuTrigger: ContextMenuTriggerOptions.LEFT_CLICK
When set as right-click menu (default behavior)

The contextual menu opens on right-click. If you want to monitor right-click actions and listen to the right-click events on a chart or table, use EmbedEvent.VizPointRightClick event. For more information, see VizPointRightClick.

When set as left-click menu

The contextual menu opens on left-click. If your app is already using EmbedEvent.VizPointClick to listen to left-click events on a visualization, the VizPointClick event will be triggered whenever a user clicks on an action in the contextual menu. If you are using EmbedEvent.VizPointClick to trigger actions such as updating runtime filters on a Liveboard visualization, the click events from left-click contextual menu may impact your app’s current workflow.

We recommend using a development environment to test your customizations before rolling them out on production servers. For more information, contact ThoughtSpot Support.

CHANGE NOTICE

Pinboards are now Liveboards!

Effective from the ThoughtSpot 8 November Cloud release, ThoughtSpot pinboards are rebranded as Liveboards and optimized for live analytics in cloud deployments. Along with granular insights, Liveboards offer interactive data analytics experience with enhanced capabilities.

As part of rebranding, we have made some terminology changes in the ThoughtSpot UI and Developer portal. We are in the process of rolling out terminology changes across all ThoughtSpot interfaces, platforms, and information artifacts. During this period, your environment may show some instances of pinboard based on the rebranding rollout stage. In some cases, we may even continue to use the legacy terminology for backward compatibility, and to ensure that your existing integrations work seamlessly. For more information, see Terminology changes.

Custom actions

NEW FEATURE

Custom action association to user groups

ThoughtSpot now allows you to restrict a custom action’s availability to specific user groups. Developers can associate a custom action to one or several user groups in the Developer portal and allow only authorized users to view and access the custom action on a Worksheet, Answer, or visualization.

For more information, see Custom actions and Configure a custom URL action.

User access

NEW FEATURE

ThoughtSpot now supports restricting embed user access to the non-embedded ThoughtSpot application instance. By default, all embedded ThoughtSpot users can navigate to and log in to the non-embedded ThoughtSpot application instance. If you want to allow only users with administrator or developer privileges to access the non-embedded ThoughtSpot application instance, contact ThoughtSpot Support.

Visual Embed SDK version 1.6.x

NEW FEATURE

Visible actions

You can now configure a set of ThoughtSpot UI actions as visible actions and display these actions in the embedded UI. If your embedded instance requires only a few actions, you can use the visibleActions API to show only these actions in the embedded ThoughtSpot UI.

For more information, see Show or hide UI actions.

MODIFIED

Terminology changes

The SDK library and object parameter names are modified to rebrand pinboards as Liveboards. For a complete list of changes, see Terminology changes.

NEW FEATURE

Custom actions

MODIFIED

Custom actions feature availability

Starting from ThoughtSpot 7 Cloud October release, you do not require a separate ThoughtSpot Everywhere Edition license to create or manage custom actions. The Custom action feature is unlocked on all clusters that have a valid ThoughtSpot Enterprise Cloud service subscription. ThoughtSpot Cloud service users with Developer or Admin privileges can access the Custom actions feature in the Develop tab.

REMOVED

The Only allow in context menu checkbox

The Only allow in context menu checkbox in the custom action creation dialog is removed from the UI. This checkbox was available in previous releases to allow developers to set a custom action to appear only in the contextual menu on pinboard visualizations, charts, or tables.

If you have created custom actions with the Only allow in context menu setting enabled on your instance, note these custom action workflow changes:

  • If you have a Global custom action with the Only allow in context menu setting enabled, the configuration setting is not preserved and the action is placed in the More the more options menu menu instead of the contextual menu.

    You can modify the position of this action by using the Edit option in the Custom actions panel on a visualization or search results page.

  • If you have a Local custom action with the Only allow in context menu setting enabled and the action is already assigned to a Worksheet, visualization, chart, or table, the configuration setting is preserved and the custom action shows up in the contextual menu.

  • If you have a Local custom action with the Only allow in context menu setting enabled, but it is not assigned to a Worksheet, visualization, chart, or table, the action will not be available as a menu item or button. You must add the action to a visualization, chart, or table, and configure its position as required. For more information, see Add a custom action to a visualization and Add custom actions to a Worksheet.

This feature is available to all ThoughtSpot users who have edit privileges to a Worksheet.

For more information, see Add custom actions to a Worksheet.

NEW FEATURE

Query parameters for URL-based custom actions

The Developer portal now allows you to add arbitrary key-value pairs as query parameters for a URL action. If a URL endpoint requires specific information, such as the database details or data object attributes, you can add a key-value pair of these attributes when creating a custom action. When the custom action workflow is triggered, these attributes are passed as query parameters in GET requests to get the data payload from ThoughtSpot.

For more information, see Configure a custom URL action.

Visual Embed SDK version 1.3.1

The ThoughtSpot 7 Cloud August release supports Visual Embed SDK version 1.3.1, which includes the following features and enhancements.

    A TML query string to define search tokens.

  • executeSearch

    When set to true, it executes search and shows the search results.

For more information, see Embed ThoughtSpot search.

DEPRECATED

searchQuery

The searchQuery parameter in the searchEmbed SDK package is deprecated in the Visual Embed SDK version 1.3.1. Instead, you can use the searchOptions parameter to define the search token string.

For more information about searchOptions, see Embed ThoughtSpot search.

NEW FEATURE

autoLogin

The SDK now supports logging in users automatically after a user session has expired.

For more information, see Embed user authentication.

NEW FEATURE

shouldEncodeUrlQueryParams

You can now convert query parameters in the ThoughtSpot generated URLs to base64-encoded format. You can enable this attribute to secure your cluster from cross-site scripting attacks.

BREAKING CHANGE

  • The Answer payload for custom actions includes the following metadata:

    • reportBookmetadata

      Includes visualization metadata attributes such as description, object header metadata, author details, timestamp of the Answer creation, and modification.

    • user data

      Includes user information such as username, GUID of the user, and email address.

To view a sample response payload, see Custom action response payload.

NEW FEATURE

preventPinboardFilterRemoval

The pinboardEmbed SDK package now includes the preventPinboardFilterRemoval attribute. You can use this attribute to disable the filter removal action and thus prevent users from removing the filter chips added on a pinboard page.

For more information, see Embed a pinboard and Embed a visualization.

NEW FEATURE

suppressNoCookieAccessAlert

You can now set custom alerts for noCookieAccess events. By default, the SDK triggers a noCookieAccess event and generates an alert when a user’s browser blocks third-party cookies. The suppressNoCookieAccessAlert allows you to disable this alert.

NEW FEATURE

Support for fetching callback custom action payload in batches

The Visual Embed SDK now supports processing data in batches for callback custom action responses. The callback custom action event in the SDK package supports defining batchSize and offset values to paginate the Answer payload and send the records in batches.

REST APIs

The ThoughtSpot 7 Cloud August release introduces several new APIs to manage users, user groups, cluster configuration, object dependencies, and so on.

For a complete list of APIs, see REST API Reference.

Version ts7.jun.clπŸ”—

Custom actions

NEW FEATURE

Global and local custom actions

The ThoughtSpot developer portal now supports configuring a custom action as a global or local action. This feature allows you to determine and control the placement of custom actions in the ThoughtSpot UI. Developers can now choose to create a custom action that will appear on all visualizations, or a specific custom action that can be added to a visualization by a ThoughtSpot user. The custom actions panel in the visualization page allows ThoughtSpot users to view the available custom actions and add an action to any visualization.

For example, if you want an action that triggers a callback into your parent app, which would then post its data to Slack, you might want to add a custom action globally to all visualizations. Similarly, if you want to send the data obtained from a specific visualization to a URL, you can associate a custom action locally to that visualization.

NEW FEATURE

Authentication schemes for custom actions

You can now apply an authentication scheme for a custom action that triggers a data payload to a specific URL target. If an action requires your users to authenticate to send data to a URL, you can specify the authentication method and authorization attributes when creating a custom action in the Developer portal. ThoughtSpot will use this information to send the required attributes in the Authorization headers to the URL endpoint configured in the custom action.

NEW FEATURE

Custom action position settings

ThoughtSpot users with edit privileges can now define or modify the position of a custom action on visualization pages. When a developer creates a custom action in the Developer portal, ThoughtSpot adds a menu item to the More the more options menu menu by default. ThoughtSpot users can change this to a context menu action or a primary action at any time.

If your application instance requires an action that sends only a single row of data from charts or tables, developers can configure a custom action and restrict it to only the contextual menu. If this setting is enabled on a custom action, ThoughtSpot users cannot modify this action on a visualization page.

Custom link format for embedded instances

ThoughtSpot generates links to access objects, such as pinboards, visualizations, and answers, when a user shares an object with another user or follows a pinboard to receive periodic notifications. If you have embedded ThoughtSpot in your application, you might want to generate these links in the format that preserves your host application context.

For embedded instances, ThoughtSpot now allows you to customize the format of these links in the Developer portal. The Link Settings page in the Developer portal allows you to customize the link format for various resource URLs and the unsubscribe link sent in email notifications.

For more information, see Customize links.
