Bug Fix
Case-sensitive database prefix in SOLE

The DATAOPS_PREFIX variable is now case sensitive and SOLE throws an error when DATAOPS_PREFIX contains any character that is not supported. For more information about the supported characters see the Namespacing documentation.

This change is incorporated within a bundled feature flag, which is optional, offering flexibility to our users to adopt and test new features while minimizing risks. For more information about all bundles, see Bundled Feature Flags.

You can activate it by adding the value 2023_10 to the variable DATAOPS_ENABLE_BEHAVIOR_CHANGE_BUNDLE in your project settings.

PriPrev Assist in private preview

We're excited to introduce Assist — your DataOps copilot powered by artificial intelligence that transforms your user experience on the data product platform. Assist is a tool for different team members, offering benefits including:

  • Boost productivity by generating models from engineers' natural language inputs, describing models missing documentation, and explaining complex SQL.
  • Speed up the review and approval of merge requests (MR) by summarizing and describing complex change requests.
  • Analyze data pipeline failures, identify root causes, and provide natural language steps for incident resolution.

Be among the first to experience Assist. Join our private preview by emailing us at, and your valuable feedback will shape its development.

Once you join, Assist is enabled by default for all users. If you have specific preferences and wish to opt out, email us at

See the Assist documentation for more information.
