Cardinality for simple, nested, and reference attributes [2017.2]

Starting in this release, you can perform validation in the Reltio Cloud UI. Cardinality for simple, nested, and reference attributes is supported, which allows you to configure metadata directly in the UI.

Entity ID search support [2017.1.2, 2017.2]

You can now search for entity IDs by using the Advanced Search feature in Reltio Cloud. All types of searches for the string attribute type are supported, including file-based search.

Entity IDs are now included in search results in the list and table modes.

  • Validation framework supports custom error messages and highlighting : A new validation framework allows you to deploy custom Java code that executes when you save records by using the Reltio Cloud UI. This allows you to customize validation error messages and highlight attributes that have errors.

Enhanced error messages for file-based searches [2017.1.1]

When you search for a file with content or a format that is not supported, a detailed error message now appears.
