New features and improvements in this release

  • (Public Preview) The new Validate feature allows you to quickly check for problems, such as syntax and analysis errors, in a pipeline’s source code. Because Validate does not update any tables, you save time and resources when developing and testing pipelines. See Check a pipeline for errors without waiting for tables to update.

  • You now have the option to selectively refresh a pipeline even if the latest update did not produce a valid DAG, allowing you to save the time and resources required to perform a full refresh of the pipeline. See Start a pipeline update for selected tables.
