Egeria 2.5 Release Now Available!

By December 14, 2020No Comments

Egeria, an LF AI & Data Foundation Graduate Project, has released version 2.5! Egeria is an open source project dedicated to making metadata open and automatically exchanged between tools and platforms, no matter which vendor they come from. 

In version 2.5, Egeria adds a variety of improvements. Highlights include:

  • The following improvements to the presentation-server user interface:
    • The Type Explorer UI
      • supports options to show/hide deprecated types and/or deprecated attributes. Please refer to the Type Explorer for details.
      • preserves the user-selected focus type across reloads of type information from the repository server.
    • The Repository Explorer UI
      • has the Enterprise option enabled by default. It can be disabled to perform more specific, localized queries.
      • now indicates whether an instance was returned by an enterprise or local scope operation against its home repository or is a reference copy or proxy.
      • has a user-settable limit on the number of search results (and a warning to the user if it is exceeded)
      • now colors nodes based on their home metadata collection’s ID. This previously used metadata collection’s name but a metadata collection’s name can be changed, whereas the metadata collection’s ID is permanent.
      • has improved help information covering search
    • The Dino UI
      • displays a server’s status history in a separate dialog instead of inline in the server details view.
  • The following improvements to the repositories:
    • The Graph Repository
      • find methods have reinstated support for core properties, previously temporarily disabled due to property name clashes that are now resolved
  • A new type ‘OpenMetadataRoot’ has been added as the root type for all Open Metadata Types. See the base model
  • The admin services guide has some additional information on configuring TLS security
  • Improvements to the gradle build scripts, but at this point it remains incomplete and build of egeria still requires maven
  • Bug Fixes
  • Dependency Updates
