Automatic Data Schemas

The old Windward functionality of "Build SQL Schema" has been expanded to all data connections, and is built automatically. Users connecting to data will still need to wait the first time they connect to their data for this schema to be built, but then all future uses of that named data connection will be instantaneous.

Re-write of Connection Editor

The Connection Editor in Designer was re-written.

License key can be specified in RESTful request body

Users can now specify their license key to be used to generate a report in the request body of their REST request. Read more details in this article.

When license validation fails with a connectivity issue, an error is now logged indicating this as the problem.

A Windward Solo user can now use their license key in an Engine. Output from the engine will count against their allotted pages.
