Smart Recommendations for Adding Rows
Spotfire now automatically detects and recommends if data you add to an analysis should be added as rows to existing data.See it in action
It’s was possible to add rows manually, but now Spotfire automatically detects and recommends how that data should be added; as a ‘union’ to an existing dataset, or as a new dataset in the same analysis.
If we detect that the data is similar enough in content and/or structure to be appended to a pre-existing dataset, Spotfire automatically configures as many column matches as possible and allows you to review. Manual edits to the matches can be made if necessary if needed.
If you know that a new data table should be added as rows, you can still do this manually, just like before.
KPI Charts API
The KPI chart API allows authors and developers to automatically configure KPI Charts from IronPython scripts or custom tools. This enables creating more user friendly and powerful visual analytics applications for end users.
Configurable in-db table visualization row limit
Administrators can now configure a system wide upper limit for the number of rows possible to visualize in a table visualization based on an in-database data table. The configuration is made in Spotfire Analyst Administration Manager, on the Preferences tab, under Data Import Preferences.Learn more
Before Spotfire 7.8, the table visualization was limited to displaying a maximum of 10 000 rows of data from in-database data tables. This limit protects resources like memory and network bandwidth from potentially transferring and loading billions of rows.
With Spotfire 7.8, however, administrators now have the option to configure the row limit, so that analysts can visualize more rows without creating a second (on demand) in-memory data table.
Federated Authentication: OpenID
Spotfire Server now supports the use of OpenID as a method of authenticationLearn more
OpenID is an open standard and decentralized authentication protocol. Using OpenID allows a customer to configure Spotfire so that their users can log in with an account from other services, such as Google, Yahoo, or Salesforce. This can cut down on usernames and passwords, account setups, and even security risks.
To set up OpenID with Spotfire Server, there are two prerequisites:
* You have configured a public address URL within Spotfire Server.
* You have registered a client at the provider with a return endpoint URL, and have received a client ID and client secret from that provider.
Enable Data On-Demand in Spotfire Cloud Analyst
Your analysis can benefit from on-demand loading when you have access to massive amounts of data, but you only need to work with some parts of the data at a time. When setting up an on-demand data table you can specify conditions based on one or more other data tables to control what to load.
Support for WMS 1.3.0
The map chart now supports Web Map Service (WMS) 1.3.0 in addition to the previously existing 1.1.0 and 1.1.1 support.
Specify proportions in LayoutDefinition API
Getting a nice layout when automating dashboard creation has often been cumbersome. With the new capabilities in the LayoutDefinition API, developers can specify proportions (vertically or horizontally) to get full control over the layout of the visualizations on a page, similar to what is possible to configure from the user interface.Learn more
