What's New in Data Hub Cloud Service

This document describes what’s new in Oracle Data Hub Cloud Service on all infrastructure platform where it’s available.

The information is organized by the date a specific feature or capability become available. When new and changed features become available, Oracle Data Hub Cloud Service clusters are upgraded in the data centers where Oracle Cloud services are hosted. You don’t need to request an upgrade to be able to use the new features — they come to you automatically.

Here’s an overview of new features and enhancements added recently to improve your Oracle Data Hub Cloud Service experience.

March 2018

Feature Description

Seed Node Management

The underlying Apache Cassandra cluster now has a new capability for seed node management.

Seed nodes are a set of nodes in the cluster. The seed nodes are used by other nodes as a contact point to learn the cluster topology. The seed node management feature helps to:

  • Ensure that there is always a minimum number of seed nodes in the cluster.

  • Facilitate the communication process with new nodes joining the cluster.

  • Avoid single point of failure.

See About Oracle Data Hub Cloud Service Seed Node Management in Administering Oracle Data Hub Cloud Service.

Feature Description

Use tags to categorize clusters

You can now create tags for categorizing Oracle Data Hub Cloud Service clusters, for example, by purpose, owner, or environment. You can easily identify and search for clusters based on the tags you have assigned to the cluster.

You can:

  • Create tags

  • Assign and unassign tags after a cluster is created

  • Search for clusters by using tags

  • List tags

  • Delete tags

See Managing Tags in Administering Oracle Data Hub Cloud Service.

Default URL in the object storage container field

The object storage container field in the instance creation wizard is auto-populated with a default container URL in the format restEndpointUrl/DHCS, where restEndpointUrl is the REST endpoint URL of the Object Storage service in the account, and DHCS is the default container name. You can override this value with a REST endpoint URL and container name of your choice.

Note that if the account doesn’t include an Object Storage service entitlement or if the region selected is an Oracle Cloud Infrastructure region, then the container field is not autopopulated.

See About Backing Up and Restoring Databases in Administering Oracle Data Hub Cloud Service.

Asynchronous REST endpoints for retrieving metrics

All endpoints for retrieving cluster metrics will now work asynchronously. The cluster metrics endpoints now return a task identifier immediately. The task identifier value should be retained and then used in the check task status endpoint for retrieving the response.

See Cluster Metrics REST Endpoints in REST API for Managing Oracle Data Hub Cloud Service Cluster.

Feature Description
Provision clusters quickly and easily

(Available for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Classic)

Customers with a Universal Credit subscription can quickly create an Oracle Data Hub Cloud Service cluster by using one of the two easy-to-use QuickStart templates. You don’t need to complete any prerequisites such as creating SSH keys or a Storage Container — the QuickStart software creates them for you. See Creating a Cluster by Using a QuickStart Template in Administering Oracle Data Hub Cloud Service.

All customers can continue to create a custom Oracle Data Hub Cloud Service cluster by using the provisioning wizard you used in previous releases. See Creating a Cluster in Administering Oracle Data Hub Cloud Service.

Use reserved IP addresses with IP networks

(Available for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Classic)

If you specify an IP network within a region when provisioning an Oracle Data Hub Cloud Service cluster, you can now specify reserved IP addresses as well. This feature enables you to assign a fixed public IP address to clusters attached to IP networks. In the past, IP addresses were auto-assigned and dynamic, so the IP address could change every time the cluster was started.

See Managing IP Reservations for a Cluster in Administering Oracle Data Hub Cloud Service.

PSM Command Line Interface can communicate with PSM REST API over OAuth.

The Platform Service Manager CLI can now communicate with the PSM REST API over OAuth. Previously, it could only communicate via basic authorization. OAuth communication is established during CLI setup and requires that you provide appropriate OAuth credentials.

See Configuring the Command Line Interface in PaaS Service Manager Command Line Interface Reference.

PSM Command Line Interface setup now accepts configuration payload

You can now insert configuration parameters for the PSM CLI—such as username, password, ID domain, and so on—by using a JSON payload file with the PSM setup command. In previous versions of the CLI, you had to add such information prompt-by-prompt.

You can provide multiple configuration profiles (for example, one for each account) and use the appropriate profile to access any account. Before this enhancement, to access an account different from the one you were accessing previously using the CLI, you first had to enter the required configuration parameters again.

See Configuring the Command Line Interface in PaaS Service Manager Command Line Interface Reference.

Feature Description
Create clusters on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure

Oracle Data Hub Cloud Service now supports cluster deployments on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure in addition to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Classic. If your account has access to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure regions, you can select one of these regions when creating certain types of clusters. For more information, see About Oracle Data Hub Cloud Service Clusters in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure in Administering Oracle Data Hub Cloud Service.
