Closed beta testing of v5.5

Closed beta-testing of v5.5 has started. The details are here:

The headline feature of v5.5 is the File Manager (the pre-release name was File Browser).

Other changes include:

  • Connector for Azure Blob Storage (the respective action will appear in v5.5.1)
  • Connector for S3-compatible file storage services (e.g. DigitalOcean)
  • Tableau Hyper is now included by default (TDE still available via an add-on)
  • New action: “To-do”
  • New Catalog items: “Remote folder” and “Remote file”
  • The “File transfer” action now has an option not to use a temporary file
  • The “File transfer” action has new commands: Create/Delete/Rename folder.
  • The option for chunked file upload in the SharePoint connector

PS. Fun fact - the installer of the beta was uploaded to our website using the new File Manager.


Thanks for adding the Last Accessed Date in the List Files action! Works great!

Thank you for adding this, I have some clients that don’t allow renaming files causing it to fail when EM tries to rename the temp file.

@dgudkov is there a timeline for when the server will get this update?
