On-premises data gateway November 2020 update is now available

We are happy to announce that we have just released the November update for the On-premises data gateway (version 3000.66.4)

 

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

  • Hive LLAP Connector on Gateway
  • November Version of the mashup engine
  • .Net Framework Update
  • Deprecation Notices
    • Kerberos single sign-on (SSO) to SAP BW using gx64krb5
    • SAML single sign-on (SSO) to SAP HANA using OpenSSL

Hive LLAP Connector on Gateway

We are happy to announce that you can now connect to Hive LLAP using the on-premises data gateway with the November gateway.

November version of the mashup engine

This month’s Gateway update also includes an updated version of the Mashup Engine, which will match the Power BI Desktop November update. 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/run-time as in the latest Power BI Desktop version.

.Net Framework Update

The Gateway install will require .NET 4.8 framework in all versions from January 2021 and later. For information on what version of the .NET Framework is pre-installed with your operating system, consult the documentation here.

Deprecation Notice – Kerberos single sign-on (SSO) to SAP BW using gx64krb5

Since SAP no longer supports the gx64krb5, Microsoft is also discontinuing support for it effective immediately. Existing and new connections will continue to work until the end of this calendar year but will start failing starting January 2021. Going forward, please use CommonCryptoLib instead .

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