DSMP Draft Warning Message

Deleting a draft in DSMP gives an incorrect warning - that all derived assets will be deleted.  This is not true of a draft which has a published version.


None. Alarming to users.

Spatial Lens

Region map (choropleth) cards on a Data Lens and region maps in the visualization canvas built for a dataset with multiple location columns can show data aggregated to the wrong location column without warning.


Refrain from creating region maps for datasets with multiple location columns. Users can create multiple datasets, each with one location column, in order to create the desired maps.

There is work planned to support multiple location columns and region maps for the future (timeline TBD), but the configuration is currently unsupported.


DataSync failures for "Missing Fields" where georeference columns - ":@computed_region_..." are not mapped.


Please ensure you are using the latest version of DataSync (DataSync releases can be found here.)
