Twitter Component

Stambia Data Integration allows to work with Twitter.

You can reverse in Metadata the common operations which can be performed with Twitter such as posting and searching Tweets, retrieve various information, and more...

You can also design your own operations as you want.

Refere to this article for more information.

You can find Components download section and installation procedure at this location.


Usability Improvements

Warning when Runtime not connected

When performing operations from Designer which require a Runtime while no Runtime is connected, a warning popup will now appear to inform about it.

Being connected to a Runtime is necessary for instance when performing operations such as prepare, execute, publish, ...

This helps to be warmed before executing the operation which, when no Runtime is connected, might fail.




Open Mapping from breadcrumb trail

When navigating in a Process which contains Mappings, a new context menu called "Open Mapping" has been added to open a Mapping directly from breadcrumb trail.

This menu is available by right clicking on the Mapping in the breadcrumb trail:

open mapping 

XPath menus ordered alphabetically

XPath and Global XPath context menus which are available at several places such as in Metadata, will now show their list of XPath expressions ordered alphabetically.


Metadata link - XPath menus

On Processes, XPath and Global XPath menu have been added when right clicking on a Metadata Link.

This allows to quickly access the available XPath expressions without having to open the related Metadata.



Metadata Link - tooltip displaying real name

The real name of the Metadata node which is being a Metadata Link is now displayed as tooltip when hovering it.

This allows to see the real name quickly when the Metadata Link name is different than the real name of the Metadata, without having to open the Metadata.



Metadata reference attributes improved

On Metadata, reference attributes had a tooltip on the left which was indicating that it was a reference attribute, and that it supports therefore drag and dropping references inside.

The icon of the tooltip was the same as the icon for the documentation, and the text was not clear enough to help understanding its usage.

We therefore revised this information by changing its icon, location and text:


On previous versions:



On this new version:



Syntax highlight on SQL File Export Process Action

Syntax highlight is now available also on SQL File Export Process Action.

sql file export syntax highlight


New button to remove transparent stage

A new button has been added to remove easily a defined transparent staging area.

button remove transparent staging area

You can still remove it also by deleting it on the datastore as it was possible before.



Upgrade Mapping Models

The menu "Upgrade Mapping Models" has been renamed to "Upgrade Models" for clarity because it can apply also on other models, such as Metadata and Processes.

This menu, which can also be used to upgrade several models at once by selecting multiple Projects / folders / Mappings / ... has also been improved to appear as soon as one of the selected items contains outdated models.

Before this change, it was only displayed when all selected models were outdated, which was making hard to update models massively in a workspace.



File Reverse Wizard

We added, in Runtime S20.1.0 the support of escape character when reading files, for files which does not have string delimiter and instead escape the characters of data which can cause issues.

This works well at execution when reading files through Runtime, in a Mapping or Process.

But it was not yet implemented in the File Reverse Wizard, so we updated the reverse wizard to also support it:




Execute Delivery Process Action

New parameter to define repository

  • Stambia DI Runtime S20.3.0


Addition of a new parameter to define the repository from which Runtime repository the delivery should be executed.

This parameter defines the runtime repository in which the delivery will be searched.

It is similar to the "-repository" parameter that is supported on startdelivery.bat script.


When this parameter is not defined it search for the delivery in default repository, as usual.

This version also contains some other minor improvements and fixed issues, which can be found in the complete changelog.
