RELEASE NOTES

2020.10

  • Datatask :

    • Datatask becomes multi-tenant (multi-organization): a single Datatask instance can be shared between several organizations while ensuring access to resources.

    • Datatask’s embedded git is also aware of these multiple organizations.

  • Admin UI :

    • Namespace management : namespace creation is available in the admin interface. Used to access resources, a group can be scoped to one or several namespaces for which they can deploy, delete, list and view resources.

    • Organization management : a user can be assigned to an organization from the administration interface.

  • Deploy :

    • An application can be hidden on the portal by setting the value false to the property published.visible.

    • Services and deployments can be updated by clicking the update button from the task list. No longer need to delete and re-deploy them, the update is done without downtime.

    • Once deploying a new service, your accesses are updated automatically. No need for re-authentication.

    • The value "All namespaces" has been added to the task and pipeline lists. It allows to display the task or pipeline list of all namespaces you have access to.

2020.05

New features

  • Deploy & Pipeline :

    • You can now create template categories and add your own task templates and pipelines.

2020.03

New features

  • Portal :

    • New UI design.

  • Deploy & Pipeline :

    • New UI design.

    • The deployment of a task is now done in three steps :

      1. Loading the manifest.

      2. Editing the manifest.

      3. Deployment of the task.

    • The launch of a pipeline is now done in 3 steps. :

      1. Loading the pipeline.

      2. Editing the pipeline.

      3. Launch.

    • You can now deploy tasks and pipelines from templates.

    • You can add custom icons or images to your services. To do this you must edit the field published.icon.

2020.01

New features

  • Deploy & Pipeline :

    • API :

      • Added tolerations and node-selector options in the manifest.json configuration. You can now manage node affinity and assign tasks to specific nodes.

      • The published field of the manifest.json for a service becomes optional. You can now deploy a service without exposing it externally by leaving the published field blank or omitting it.

2019.09

New features

  • Admin UI :

    • Users :

      • Added a button to duplicate a user.

  • Deploy & Pipeline :

    • UI :

      • Pipelines are now sorted by date from the most recent to the oldest.

      • The pipeline tracking interface now includes the current step of each task.

      • The pipeline tracking interface now gives you the ability to view logs for a specific task.

      • The interface that displays tasks is now limited to tasks of one week by default. With the possibility to display the oldest ones.

      • You can find a task that has just been started in the list of all tasks using a find in list button.

      • Added different links to Kubernetes resources on the drawers of each task.

    • API :

      • Added rewrite and timeout_ms options in the manifest.json configuration for service deployment : You can now deploy more complex services such as a Jupyter Lab.

      • Added sticky_sessions option in the manifest.json configuration for service deployment : If your service has several replicas, users will always fall back on the same pods. This feature is useful for horizontally scaling of statefull services.

      • Added bypass_auth option in the manifest.json configuration for service deployment : If you set this option to true, your service will be deployed with public access.

      • Injection of an environment variable TASK_LOGGING_ID to each task to allow the user to send the application logs of a task to the same filter as the deployment logs.

Improvements & Bugs fixes

  • Deploy UI optimizations.

  • Admin UI ergonomics improvements.

  • For display performance reasons, the lifetime of a pipeline in the history is now 7 days. This value can be modified on demand.
