On-premises data gateway February 2021 update is now available

We are happy to announce that we have just released the February update for the On-premises data gateway (version 3000.72.6)

 

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

  • Azure Cosmos DB connector renamed from DocumentDB to Cosmos DB on Gateway
  • Compatible with February PBI desktop
  • .Net Framework Update
  • Deprecation
    • Kerberos single sign-on (SSO) to SAP BW using gx64krb5
    • SAML single sign-on (SSO) to SAP HANA using OpenSSL

Azure Cosmos DB Connector renamed on Gateway

You have been able to connect to Azure Cosmos DB using the on-premises data gateway with the December gateway. The connector previously called DocumentDB has now been renamed to Azure Cosmos DB

 Compatible with February PBI Desktop 

This version of the gateway 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 February Power BI Desktop version.

.Net Framework Update

The Gateway install will require .NET 4.8 framework in all versions from February 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

Microsoft is discontinuing support for the use of gx64krb5 while creating SAP BW data sources in Power BI, effective immediately. Existing connections will continue to work but you will not be able to create new connections anymore. Please use CommonCryptoLib instead .

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

Deprecation Notice – SAML single sign-on (SSO) to SAP HANA using OpenSSL 

Microsoft is also discontinuing support for the use of OpenSSL while creating SAP HANA data sources in Power BI, effective immediately. Existing connections will continue to work but you will not be able to create new connections anymore. Please use CommonCryptoLib instead.
