New Features in Release 6.7

New authentication model for Data Workbench Workstation (IMS integration)
Data Workbench Workstation now supports user authentication through username and password. With this new method, administrators can create and manage their own user accounts, eliminating the need to contact Customer Care.
For more information, see Self-Provisioning of Users .
Flat file lookup
Data Workbench Workstation now supports user authentication through username and password. With this new method, administrators can create and manage their own user accounts, eliminating the need to contact Customer Care.
Flat file lookup previously loaded the entire file into in-memory buffers, bloating memory usage and creating performance issues for other subsystems. The files can now be memory mapped and cached in Windows, optimizing memory usage by setting Memory Mapped Lookup Files to true in MemorySettings.cfg.
For more information, see Self-Provisioning of Users .
Memory usage
Large Page usage can now be disabled by setting Use Large Pages to false in MemorySettings.cfg. See Monitoring Memory Usage for more information.
Security ciphers
Added support for ECDHE and DHE.
Email support in User List.cfg
Added support for Email attribute in User List.cfg. For more information, see User Administration of Group Members .
Help Menu
Help menu now shows a shortcut to Open Certificates directory.
TargetBulkUpload export
URLs will be provided at the end of the export trace file and the targetbulkuploadexportname.log.completed file to track the record of stuck batches.
A new file, TargetBulkUpload.cfg, has been provided to configure the Max Timeout interval (in minutes). The file is found in [Server\Admin\Export\].

Fixes

  • Fixed an issue where the Campaign Clickthrough dimension was showing inflated values.
  • Fixed an issue with generating excel files from the report server.
  • RC4 cipher is now disabled by default.
  • Fixed an issue causing the Data Workbench workstation to crash when adding a dimension element to a value legend table.
  • Fixed an issue with Data Workbench to AAM exports that was causing timeouts.
  • Fixed an issue causing the Data Workbench workstation to crash when a user without sufficient access level saved the workspace to Server.
  • Fixed an issue with the date format in report.cfg being incorrect or not localized.
  • Fixed an issue with the mobile and product rows in the AVRO feed displaying confusing information.
  • Fixed an issue that prevented the ordering of *.1cd and *.1ad files in order.txt.
  • Submit To Server option has been disabled for Expectation Maximization algorithm while running Clustering.
  • Fixed an issue with the TargetBulkUpload executable stalling and failing to run completely.

Known Issues

  • On log out, the user cache.db file is cleaned.
  • IMS user email addresses containing '+' or '%' characters are not supported.
  • User is unable to logout during an error in connection status. As a workaround, logout in offline mode.
  • IMS login window does not render properly on some hardware with high resolution and high DPI. As a workaround, right-click on Insight.exe and navigate to Properties > Compatability , then check the box Override high DPI scaling behavior .
