Upcoming Atlassian Analytics changes to Data Lake connection for Insight (Assets)

A huge thanks to all who have provided feedback on Atlassian Analytics and Insight dashboards and data. Based on your feedback, we have been working on an improved version of the Atlassian Data Lake connection to allow org admins to control access to Insight data more granularly. You will now be able to select the specific Insight schema that will be included within the connection to allow users access to a subset of all your Insight data.

What to expect

When this new change is released, all charts using Insight data from your existing Data Lake connections will break and will need to be pointed at a new Data Lake connection. For the existing Assets Overview dashboard, the easiest path forward would be to create a new connection and use the new dashboard.

However, if you’ve created custom charts and dashboards using Insight data, the simplest way forward is to edit each query and change the connection used to a newly created connection. This will work as long as the schemas used within the query have been selected as part of the new Data Lake connection. Continue reading for recommendations on how to migrate those charts and dashboards to use the new connections.

Given the incoming change, we recommend that you do not create many charts between now and the new changes, which are scheduled to go live by Tuesday, August 23rd, AEST.

Migrate custom charts

If you and your organization have created any custom charts or dashboards, do not delete the old Data Lake connections yet. Deleting an old Data Lake connection too early will permanently delete any charts that query it.

To migrate your custom charts to the new connection, you will need to edit each chart to use the new Data Lake connection.

Note: To resolve chart errors, you need permission to edit or manage the dashboard that the chart is on and permission to query the underlying data sources.

We recommend doing the following:

  1. If you haven’t already, create a new Data Lake connection and select the specific Assets schemas required.

  2. Determine which dashboards you want to migrate to the new connection.

  3. For each query in each chart, switch the data source to the new Data Lake connection.pic2.png

    1. For visual mode queries, Atlassian Analytics automatically highlights any columns with errors.

    2. For SQL mode queries, you need to rerun the query to check for any resulting errors.

  4. After you’ve migrated all your necessary dashboards, you can delete the old Data Lake connections. We also recommend deleting the dashboards you no longer need.

Future evolution

We know this update is disruptive to your work in Atlassian Analytics. However, we do not expect breaking changes like this to occur frequently. These all feed into improvements our team is making to turn Atlassian Analytics and the Atlassian Data Lake into a more effective platform for our customers.
