10/24/20228332LinkedIn Marketing SolutionsAdded
  • Added support for the new versioning feature of the LinkedIn Marketing API. The API version can be controlled by the APIVersion connection property. The changes that come with this are forced because LinkedIn plans to sunset the unversioned (legacy) API on February 2023. The biggest changes have been made to the Creatives and UGCPosts tables.
  • The following columns have been added to the Creatives table: Account, CreatedBy, and LastModifiedBy.
  • The following columns have been added to the Posts table: Commentary, Content, IsReshareDisabledByAuthor, PublishedAt, and Visibility.
  • Added the ApproximateUniqueImpressions metric to the Analytics table.

  • Removed the UGCPosts table.
  • The following columns have been removed from the Posts table: LastModifiedActor, LastModifiedTime, CreatedActor, CreatedTime, Origin, UGCOrigin, VersionTag, and PersonId.
  • The following columns have been removed from the Creatives table: Status, Type, Version, ReviewRejectionReason, Reference, CreativesClickUri, Data, ProcessingState, and ServingStatuses.

  • The new Posts table replaces UGCPosts.
  • For the Posts table: CreatedAt replaces CreatedTime and LastModifiedAt replaces LastModifiedTime.
  • For the Creatives table: IntendedStatus replaces Status, IsServing and ServingHoldReasons replace ServingStatuses, and Content replaces Reference/Data.
  • Added the IsPath column to the sys_procedureparameters table.

  • Added support for the AdFormResponses view.
  • We now support handling the keyword "COLLATE" as standard function name as well.

  • The method GetJDBCMinorVersion() and GetJDBCMajorVersion() return 4.2 as the supported JDBC major / minor version.

  • Changed provider name to LinkedIn Marketing Solutions.
05/12/20228167LinkedIn Marketing SolutionsAdded
  • Added support for paginating the Accounts, Campaigns, CampaignGroups, and Creatives tables. The API throws '400 Bad Request' error in case the response returns more than a specific number of results. The maximum number of results returned for one page is controlled by the PageSize connection property.
  • Removed support for JRE 1.6. JRE 1.8 and above is now required.
  • The method DatabaseMetaData.getTypeInfo() now returns all the data types the driver supports. Previously it was returning only a portion of the data types. The returns types include: tinyint, smallint, int, bigint, float, double, numeric, decimal, bit, date, datetime, time, varchar, binary, uuid.
  • Correct the return value of method DatabaseMetaData.supportsOuterJoins(), it used to return the wrong value.

  • Added ReviewRejectionReason, Data, ProcessingState, IsTest, and ServingStatuses as columns for the Creatives table.
12/07/20218011LinkedIn Marketing SolutionsAdded
  • Added the OLAP properties Dimension, Hierarchy and OLAPType as extra columns to sys_tablecolumns.
  • Support for JDK 17
  • Removed IS_READONLY, IS_KEY, NUMERIC_PRECISION, DECIMAL_DIGITS from DatabaseMetadata.GetColumns() as they are not part of the JDBC Specification. This information is still available via other metadata calls.
  • Added support for the STRING_SPLIT table-valued function in the CROSS APPLY clause.
  • Added the KeySeq column to the sys_foreignkeys table.
  • Added the new sys_primarykeys system table.
  • Updated the Literal Function Names for relative date/datetime functions. Previously relative date/datetime functions resolved to a different value when used in the projection vs te predicate. Ie: SELECT LAST_MONTH() AS lm, Col FROM Table WHERE Col > LAST_MONTH(). Formerly the two LAST_MONTH() methods would resolve to different datetimes. Now they will match.
  • As a replacement for the previous behavior, the relative date/datetime functions in the criteria may have an 'L' appended to them. Ie: WHERE col > L_LAST_MONTH(). This will continue to resolve to the same values that previously were calculated in the criteria. Note that the "L_" prefix will only work in the predicate - it not available for the projection.
  • Added the TCP Logging Module for the logging information happening on the TCP wire protocol. The transport bytes that are incoming and ongoing will be logged at verbosity=5.
  • Added support for handling client side formulas during insert / update. For example: UPDATE Table SET Col1 = Concat(Col1, " - ", Col2) WHERE Col2 LIKE 'A%'
  • Updated how display sizes are determined for varchar primary key and foreign key columns so they will match the reported length of the column.
  • Non-conditional updates between two columns is now available to all drivers. For example: UPDATE Table SET Col1=Col2

  • Reduced the length to 255 for varchar primary key and foreign key columns.
  • Updated implicit and metadata caching to improve performance and support for multiple connections. Old metadata caches are not compatible - you would need to generate new metadata caches if you are currently using CacheMetadata.
  • Updated index naming convention to avoid duplicates
  • Updated and standardized Getting Started connection help.
  • Added the Advanced Features section to the help of all drivers.
  • Categorized connection property listings in the help for all editions.

  • Kerberos authentication is updated to use TCP by default, but will fall back to UDP if a TCP connection cannot be established
