    Filtering and quick search

    When your table contains hundreds of columns, finding the one you want to edit can be cumbersome. In Dataedo 7.1 we've added an option to filter objects:

    Filter

    And an addition to our previous search feature - search within current tab:

    Quick search

    This applies to almost all of our grid style tabs.

    Oracle - direct connection

    Until now, importing from Oracle required Oracle Client installation. In Dataedo 7.1 you can choose direct connection:

    Oracle direct connection

    In case of any issues, Oracle client connection is still available.

    Oracle - packages

    A much requested feature on our forums was the ability to document packages.

    Using Dataedo 7.1, you can now import package scripts - they're visible in the Procedures folder:

    Oracle packages

    Repository connection encryption

    When connecting to your server repository, Dataedo 7.1 always tries to use encrypted connection.

    To better protect your data, you can now also block unencrypted connection, or when encrypted server certificate is not trusted by your machine:

    Encrypt connection to repository

    Suggested entities in ERDs

    Clicking an object on ERD now displays objects related to it in the Suggested entities tab.

    When no objects are selected, Suggested entities contain all objects related to objects already on ERD.

    Other entities displays objects not already on ERD from the same documentation by default, or all other documentation if you check the All docs box.

    Suggested entities

    Easier and quicker manual relations

    Sometimes you know that there must be a relation between tables, but you're not sure which columns are used for joins.

    You can now add a relation without specifying columns which it references.

    New user defined relations now get their default name based on joined tables.

    Import and read speed improvements

    We've made some changes to the import process, which should greatly improve time of importing new documentations.

    We've also made some changes to the repository indexing, which should improve reading time when moving between objects.

    Improvements

    Manual tables

    Manual tables now display their type in the details tab, along with an icon.

    Import

    Changing letter case of an object name in database will also be updated in Dataedo.

    DBMS icons are now shown when choosing source during import.

    Altered messages shown when connecting to unsupported databases.

    Solved encoding issue when importing from Postgres.

    Other

    Solved multiple reported issues and bugs.
