  • Dynamic Filters Enhancement for Bulk Policies and DQ Policies: Added a spark SQL filter panel to selectively target specific data records that need to be evaluated for data quality issues. For more information, see Data Quality Policy.
  • Integration with GCS Secret Manager: ADOC can now use Google Cloud Secret Manager to store your secrets. For more information, see GCS Secret Manager
  • Introduced BigQuery Lineage Data Support: ADOC has been enhanced to offer the functionality of showcasing lineage details for assets originating from BigQuery data sources. For more information, see Lineage.
  • Enhanced Profiling of Data Assets: ADOC has enhanced its profiling capabilities to encompass the profiling of semi-structured data assets as well.
  • Crawling a Single Asset to a Data Source: ADOC provides you with an option to crawl either a single asset or select specific assets to add to an existing Snowflake, Redshift, or Databricks data source. For more information, see Managing Data Sources.

Monitors and Alerts

  • Added New Databricks Monitor: Introduced the following new monitors in Databricks Workspace: Running Clusters after Work Hours.
