Data Access

TIBCO Cloud Spotfire supports Apache Spark SQL and Microsoft HDInsight Hive, offers support for Amazon EMR and now has a timeout setting for the Cloudera Impala connector allowing for longer query run times.


Spotfire 7.13 makes it possible to trigger execution of Automation Services jobs from external applications using a REST API. The Web Service (SOAP) APIs now use a OAuth2 based authentication/authorization mechanism. They have also simplified the procedure for building .NET extensions for Spotfire. Beginning this release, it is now possible to ship a bundled solution, containing several Spotfire packages, as a single distribution file (.sdn).
