Snowflake Connector for Google Analytics Raw Data release notes

This topic provides release notes for the Snowflake Connector for Google Analytics Raw Data.

For additional information, see Snowflake Connector for Google Analytics Raw Data.

Version 1.2.0 (May 28th, 2024)

Behavior changes

  • Ingestion tasks are scaled based on warehouse size. Ingestion time for larger warehouses should be decreased.

  • Additional optimizations in ingestion and ingestion scheduling. These updates could result in slightly lower credit consumption, as well as increased ingestion throughput.

New features

Not applicable.

Bug fixes

Not applicable.

Version 1.1.0 (May 22nd, 2024)

Behavior changes

  • Disabling property which is ingesting incremental intraday data will remove currently ingested day if ingestion was not fully completed.

  • Introduced managed task to check and report its health back to Snowflake for Connectors installed before version 1.0.0. See the Snowflake Connector for Google Analytics Raw Data health check cost for details.

New features

Not applicable.

Bug fixes

  • Fixed issue with Pausing/Resuming Connector which left Connector state in intermediate state PAUSING/ STARTING.

Version 1.0.1 (May 14th, 2024)

Behavior changes

Not applicable.

New features

Not applicable.

Bug fixes

  • Dispatcher task was adjusted to never automatically suspend. See SUSPEND TASK AFTER FAILURES for details.

  • Ingestion worker tasks have prolonged timeout to 6h hours. This will override account level parameter settings.

Version 1.0.0 (May 7th, 2024)

Behavior changes

New features

  • New procedure PUBLIC.UPDATE_CONNECTION allows re-authenticating a running connector by providing a new set of external access and secret objects. See re-authentication of the connector for details.

  • Re-installing the connector, and configuring it over an existing set of destination tables, will now automatically re-enable their related Google Analytics properties for ingestion. This should make reinstalling the connector much faster.

Bug fixes

  • Tasks created by the connector now have a fixed set of properties, mostly related to AUTOCOMMIT and date-time formats, required for these tasks to work correctly. These will override account-level properties.

    Operating on the connector by explicitly calling its functions or procedures still requires certain default values, as described in Snowflake Connector for Google Analytics Raw Data known limitations.

Version 0.19.2 (May 6th, 2024)

Behavior changes

Not applicable.

New features

Not applicable.

Bug fixes

  • Fixed an issue with refreshing OAuth access tokens that was causing long-running ingestions to fail.

Version 0.19.0 (April 26th, 2024)

Behavior changes

Not applicable.

New features

  • A new procedure PUBLIC.UPDATE_WAREHOUSE is now available to replace the warehouse used by the connector.

  • Scheduling ingestions should now be much faster, especially for instances configured with large numbers of Google Analytics properties.

Bug fixes

Not applicable.

Version 0.18.0 (April 15th, 2024)

Behavior changes

Not applicable.

New features

  • The procedure UPDATE_CONNECTION_CONFIGURATION was introduced. It can be used for re-authentication purposes. Connector has to be paused to use this procedure. Currently it is only available from the worksheet and takes one argument type of VARIANT composed of fields: external_access_integration, security_integration and secret.

Bug fixes

Not applicable.

Version 0.16.4 (April 11th, 2024)

Behavior changes

Not applicable.

New features

Not applicable.

Bug fixes

  • Fixed an issue with disrupted scheduling of ingestions during execution of dispatcher task.

Version 0.16.3 (April 8th, 2024)

Behavior changes

Not applicable.

New features

Not applicable.

Bug fixes

  • Fixed an issue where changing the ingestion schedule while the dispatcher task was running could lead to temporary duplication of the dispatcher task.

Version 0.16.2 (March 25th, 2024)

Behavior changes

  • The connector now requests permission to EXECUTE MANAGED TASK. This is in preparation for internal monitoring features that will help us discover and address issues earlier.

New features

Not applicable.

Bug fixes

  • Fixed an issue where changing the ingestion schedule while the dispatcher task was running could corrupt the internal state of the connector so that it would not be able to schedule further ingestions.

Version 0.16.1 (March 19th, 2024)

Versions released in between this and prior release notes had only internal changes, and thus no release notes were published.

Behavior changes

Not applicable.

New features

  • A number of optimizations made to scheduling ingestions and ingesting itself. This should result in slightly lower credit consumption, as well as increased ingestion throughput, especially on tables with fewer than one million records.

  • The connector now supports mixed-case and lowercase secret names.

Bug fixes

  • Ingestions should no longer fail due to issues with refreshing the access token. This may very rarely still occur for particularly large tables, but will always be re-tried by the connector automatically.

  • Added validation to prevent enabling the same Google Analytics property ingestion from multiple Google Cloud Platform projects.

  • Enabling multiple properties at once is now more resilient against issues with BigQuery connectivity. It will only fail the properties for which it couldn’t connect to BigQuery, and successfully enable all the others.

Version 0.11.1 (February 12th, 2024)

Behavior changes

  • Several stored procedures, meant specifically for early user interface, access were removed. These stored procedures were generally not documented, and not part of our public API, but they may have been visible when listing procedures exposed by the connector. There’s no change in how the connector works, or how it should be operated.

  • The procedure CONFIGURE_CONNECTION now requires an additional parameter security_integration with the name of the security integration created for the connector. This applies only for worksheet-based setups. If you’re setting the connector up via the user interface, this change is transparent to you.

New features

  • Updated links to the connector’s documentation.

Bug fixes

  • Improved reading tables available in BigQuery to ensure we only look at Google Analytics export tables, and filter out similarly-named tables. This issue could sometimes cause enabling new properties, or ingesting enabled properties to fail.

Version 0.10.1 (January 26th, 2024)

Initial public preview release.
