The following release notes correspond to October 12, 2021 - October 21, 2021. In addition to these changes, this release includes back-end updates to workflows, Google integrations, and notebooks to improve upcoming features.

Data Repository

  • Combined ingest now handles fileRef array columns.
  • Added a new option to the /api/repository/v1/datasets/<id>/ingest endpoint ("csv_add_row_ids") to fill in the datarepo_row_id column when ingesting data using a CSV file. The option is set to true by default, so set the option to false in order to keep the current behavior and specify the datarepo_row_id column in the ingest file.

Interactive Analysis (Notebooks, RStudio, Galaxy)

  • Fixed a bug so that the "Compute type" drop-down now defaults to Standard VM.
  • The following Spark UIs (a.k.a. Dataproc component gateway web interfaces) can be launched on Terra UI using the compute (a.k.a. runtime) modal:
      • MapReduce History Server
      • Spark History Server
      • YARN Application Timeline
      • YARN Resource Manager

Platform Foundation

  • Fixed a bug when SAM returned a user email with any uppercase characters. This made it difficult to remove users from workspace roles. 


  • Fixed a bug that decreased browser performance while waiting for long-running asynchronous data imports.
  • When configuring a workflow to run on a Terra Data Repo snapshot, we now hide the "Use defaults" command for workflow outputs, since those defaults do not typically apply to Terra Data Repo snapshots.
  • Users without permissions to view Terra Data Repo snapshot data tables inside a workspace previously received an unhelpful error message, stating that, "User does not have bigquery.jobs.create permission”. We now provide more helpful visual indications when these tables are unavailable, as well as a message indicating which permission level is needed to see the data.
  • When viewing a data table inside a workspace, the "All (NUM)" command now becomes a "Filtered (NUM)" command if you have a current text filter. This selects all rows that match the filter.
