On-premises data gateway November 2019 update is now available

We are happy to announce that we have just released the November update for the On-premises data gateway (version 3000.14.39)

Here are some of the key things that we would like to highlight with this month’s  release:

  • Change a gateway’s recovery key
  • November version of the mashup engine

Change Gateway Recovery Key

The recovery key provided by gateway admins during installation of on-premises data gateways in a standard mode could not be changed in the past. This key is used to create the symmetric key which in turn is used for encrypting credentials in data sources/connections using that gateway.

With the November release of Data Gateways, you will now be able to rotate this key.  More information about recovery keys, detailed description on how to perform this change and associated limitations can be found in the data gateway docs.

November version of the mashup engine

This month’s Gateway update also includes an updated version of the Mashup Engine, which will match the one released as part of the Power BI Desktop update this month. This will ensure that the reports that you publish to the Power BI Service and refresh via the Gateway will go through the same query execution logic/runtime as in the latest Power BI Desktop version.

Please note that this upcoming change may impact you:

We would be using .NET 4.8 framework for gateways February 2020 version or higher hence some of the operating systems we used to support may no longer be supported . More information about OS which will be supported here.

Please continue to send us feedback for what new capabilities you’d like to see in the future.
