  • What's New in TIBCO Spotfire® 11.7


    Table of Contents

    Spotfire 11.7 features a new, faster and easier user interface for Administrators and adds support for seamless single sign-on with row-level security for data sources with Information Services using OAuth 2.0 token-based authentication.

    Discovery

    Configurable zoom interpolation for image layers in map charts

    It is now possible to keep sharp edges when upscaling an image in a map chart, to avoid image blurring. This makes it possible to better inspect irregularities within pictures taken by image sensors, such as clusters of defective pixels.

    The preference for this setting is available from the image layer properties. Administrators can change the default behavior in upscaled images at user groups level in the Administration Manager.

    Sharing to Tibbr® is deprecated

    Sharing to Tibbr® is deprecated and no longer supported.

    Data

    Visualize real-time data from TIBCO Cloud Data Streams from on-premises Spotfire installations

    It is now possible to connect to TIBCO Cloud Data Streams from Spotfire on-premises installations.

    With a simple point-and-click experience, users can visualize and analyze streaming data in Spotfire. This is the easiest way available on the market to get started with real-time visual analytics and enables full business user self-service for MQTT and Kafka data. 

    Seamless single sign-on to Information Services data sources

    TIBCO Spotfire now supports seamless single sign-on access to data sources when connecting through Information Services.

    This is enabled by using OpenID Connect (OIDC) to login into Spotfire combined with the latest release of Spotfire Information Services. Information Services is now able to pick up the access token retrieved on login and pass that on to the data source over JDBC.

    The solution is highly configurable and can be used with any data source that supports token-based authentication, including (but not limited to) Snowflake, Google BigQuery, and TIBCO Data Virtualization (where tokens can also be passed through to the underlying data sources).

    More secure and flexible user-centric data access with OAuth2

    Configuring OAuth2 for Information Services data sources also enables authorized access to role-based data. 

    A user will only see the data he/she is allowed to. In other words, different users of the same Spotfire analysis will potentially see different data depending on their roles & privileges.

    Improved performance for on demand data with data connectors

    When using on-demand data tables, performance is improved for the following connectors since they now support tuples in SQL IN clauses:

    • PostgreSQL
    • MySQL
    • Oracle
    • Amazon Redshift
    • Apache Drill
    • Apache Spark SQL
    • Dremio
    • Greenplum
    • SAP HANA
    • Vertica.

    The use of tuples makes the queries smaller, which means that more items can be selected (marked in visualizations) before reaching the maximum query size.

    Faster TERR data functions and SBDF export

    Run-length encoding (RLE) compression is now used for faster TERR data function execution and faster export of SBDF files.

    RLE is a form of lossless data compression. You will see the biggest improvements with images or texts were you have long runs of identical pixels or strings.

    Administration

    New and improved Spotfire Server web administration UI

    We are revamping the Spotfire Admin UI. Among other changes, the most noticeable improvements are:

    • Modern look & feel
    • Easier navigation and better overview with new left collapsible menu
    • Improved UI responsiveness
    • Better table sorting
    • Friendly table filtering with specialized filter pop-up menus
    • Several UX improved workflows:
      • Performing bulk actions on multiple items in tables
      • Moving and duplicating items in the library
      • Editing routing and scheduled update rules, automation job schedules, users and groups.
      • Installing new services and instances on nodes

    Data source names available from Server Diagnostics

    Server Diagnostics now displays the names of the data sources created on a Spotfire server, to easier understand what data source the information belongs to.

    Automatic Spotfire database creation

    The scripts for Spotfire database schema setup (configuration and action log) support now using environment variables or user input.

    This facilitates the automation of database creation from either common configuration management tools or scripting.

    Note: If a required variable is not set in the environment, the user is prompted for input. This means that you can run the scripts in "interactive mode", which is useful as well for non-expert Spotfire administrators.

    Delete library items by path

    The new config tool command delete-library-items provides the ability to delete library items by specifying the path and type of items.

    Note: You can delete multiple items and you can delete within a path using the recursive flag.

    Listing imported root certificates for code trust

    The new config tool command list-code-signing-root-certificates list all the code signing root certificates, both those issued and imported to the Spotfire Server.

    Easier reverse-proxy configuration for Spotfire Server cluster

    When Spotfire Server clusters with many nodes, you can provide the configure the Tomcat RemoteIpValve through a new Spotfire Server configuration option to apply to all the Spotfire servers.

    Developer

    New API for custom login pages for cobranding

    The AngularJS-based API for custom login pages has been removed. A new API with the same capabilities is now provided as part of the Cobranding feature.

    The API is written in plain JavaScript, not in AngularJS. This means that using the new API does not require knowledge about a specific front-end framework and it is not subject to framework-breaking changes.
