  • What's New in TIBCO Spotfire® 11.1

    Table of Contents

    Hyperconverged Analytics brings visual analytics, data science and streaming capabilities together. In TIBCO Cloud Spotfire® this is now demonstrated by the seamless integration with TIBCO Cloud Data Streams and TIBCO Cloud authentication*. With the new UI integration and single sign-on you can add real-time data to your analysis and visualize it in as little as six clicks..

    TIBCO Spotfire® 11.1 also introduces TIBCO Enterprise Runtime for R 6.0, adds the ability to access data from MariaDB in TIBCO Cloud Spotfire® and enables you to show or hide data tables from the user interface through the data canvas. You can now also deploy Spotfire servers on SUSE 15 Linux OS machines.

    Data Access

    Direct TIBCO Cloud Spotfire access to your data streams

    *Note: This feature will be available as soon as TIBCO Cloud Spotfire is updated to 11.1. This is planned for January 12th 2021.

    TIBCO is introducing the easiest and quickest way to analyze streaming data on the market!

    TIBCO Cloud Data Streams (TCDS) was introduced in September 2020 and its wizard already enables you to connect to, for example, your Kafka stream with a few clicks.

    We are excited to introduce a whole new TIBCO Cloud Spotfire experience for bringing your TCDS streams into Spotfire.

    With direct access to your streams from the Spotfire flyout, adding streaming data is just as easy as opening a file or opening an asset from the Spotfire library.

    TIBCO Cloud Spotfire is now fully integrated with TIBCO Cloud authentication. browser-based login, and provides seamless authentication without any unnecessary logins.

    MariaDB TIBCO Cloud Spotfire support

    The Spotfire Connector for MySQL now supports MariaDB on TIBCO Cloud Spotfire and on TIBCO Spotfire for AWS. MariaDB is supported on premises. 

    This means you can push live queries and refresh data directly from TIBCO Cloud web clients to Internet-facing MariaDB instances.

    Data Wrangling

    Show or hide data tables from the user interface through the data canvas

    In data analytics, it's common to load, transform, join, union, and do calculations on intermediate data tables which are not meant to drive visualizations and insights directly. Instead, these intermediate data tables often generate a few, well-prepared and cleansed data tables, which are the ones to be used for visual data discovery.


    To create an analysis that is easier to navigate and understand, such intermediate data tables are often hidden from the user interface using the "Show in user interface" option in the Data Table Properties.

    This setting is now also available in the Data canvas. Like the Data Table Properties dialog, the Data canvas now also lists both shown and hidden data tables. This means you no longer need to go to Data Table Properties to show a table before you can manage it from the Data canvas.


    Select this check box to show the data table in the axis selectors of visualizations, and in the Data in analysis flyout.


    Clear the check box to hide data tables that should not be used in the analysis.

    Data Science

    TIBCO Enterprise Runtime for R 6.0

    TIBCO Enterprise Runtime for R has been tested with a set of BioConductor R packages and has been updated to be compatible with Open Source R 4.0.2. 

    See the documentation and the detailed compatibility test results for both CRAN and BioConductor packages here.

    Visual Analytics

    Configure the default value for pop-up notifications

    It is now possible to configure the default value of the "show popup notifications" check box in Spotfire, which is useful when consuming analyses and other cases where the user is unable to act on the notification. This makes it possible to avoid pop-up notifications for user groups that don't need to see them.

    Since the preference sets the default state of the check box "show popup notifications", users that are able to open the notifications panel can alter the state to their liking.

    Administrators configure the default value with a new preference available in the Administration Manager under Preferences > Group > Application > ApplicationPreferences > PopupNotificationsByDefault.



    SUSE 15 is supported for Spotfire Server, TERR Service, Python Service and Statistics Service

    SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15 is now supported as operating system for the TIBCO Spotfire Server, TERR Service, Python Service and Statistics Service.

    SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) is a Linux kernel based operating system developed by SUSE.

    SLES 15 is the latest stable version and was released on 2018-07-16 (latest update 15.2 on 2020-07-21).

    Gracefully shutdown the node manager services using the command line

    You can now order a delayed or graceful shutdown of the node manager services from the command line.

    /opt/tibco/tsnm/<version>/nm/graceful-shutdown.sh <delay-seconds> <delete-nm>

    The command calls for a scheduled shutdown of all the node manager services with the specified delay <delay-seconds> in seconds. 

    It is possible to delete the node manager on the same operation by setting <delete-nm> to true. 

    Copy deployment areas using the command line

    You can now use the new command copy-deployment-area to create a copy of a deployment area with a new name within the same Spotfire Server.

     config copy-deployment-area --from-area="Production" --to-area "Backup_Production_2021.01.11"


    Export distributions using the command line

    You can now use the new command export-deployment-area to export all the packages in the specified deployment area and save them in a distribution file (.sdn) for deployment to another Spotfire Server. 

     config export-deployment-area --area-name="Production" --file-name= "Backup_Production_2021.01.11.sdn"



    JavaScript Mashup API authenticates silently when possible

    If the Spotfire Server is configured for OpenID Connect authentication, then the API automatically tries to authenticate users without requiring user interaction, as was previously only supported for NTLM, Kerberos or X.509 Client Certificate authentication.

    See this article for more information about the Spotfire JavaScript API.
