CloverETL 4.0.0M1 Introduces Subgraphs

The first milestone in the development of the next generation of the CloverETL platform is here! We’re launching subgraphs – a great improvement for performing complex transformations, and for sharing your work among your team.

This release starts off a brand new CloverETL 4 series, featuring advances in design, collaboration, and user experience. In this release, we’ve started by introducing subgraphs, plus a couple of accompanying features.

A subgraph lets you create new components without coding. Just design a transformation, describe its inputs and outputs using metadata, and wrap it into a subgraph. Then, you can reuse it for multiple transformations or share it with your colleagues. Read this blog post for more about subgraphs and other improvements.

Subgraphs [ See All | Hide All ]

Subgraph support in Server runtime New CLO-218 4.0.0-M1
Server supports execution of graphs containing subgraphs (graphs that can be used similarly to components).
Editing of subgraphs in Designer New CLO-218 4.0.0-M1
You can create and develop new subgraphs in Designer as .sgrf files.
Wrapping components into new subgraphs New CLO-2897 4.0.0-M1
You can select a bunch of components and easily create a new subgraph based on them.
Automatic metadata propagation New CLO-1475 4.0.0-M1
Many components now automatically propagate the correct metadata. This minimizes the need to manually select metadata. Subgraph will also be able to provide you with correct metadata for their outputs or inputs.
