Yellowfin 8.0.11 further solidifies the reliability of Yellowfin 8, with some vital enhancements around infrastructure, more REST API support, and a more streamlined user interface.

Yellowfin adds a mitigation for a potential security issue for Yellowfin deployments using Java 9 (see our Community announcement for full details). As a result, we updated Spring to version 5.3.18. 




  • Upgraded the JSch library from 0.1.55 to 0.1.63 to support more ciphers.
  • Upgraded the Apache XML Graphics Commons library to version 2.6.
  • Upgraded RequireJS to version 2.3.6.
  • Added LIMIT support to Vertica sources.
  • Enhanced SSO for JWT and SAML to support dynamic sessions entry options.
  • Improved database validation functionality which reduces overall processing times when cloning views.
  • Added an advanced configuration option to customize the broadcast filename format (learn more).


  • Added support for creating a login token from the REST API for the current user without requiring the current user's credentials (allowing REST API consumers to use the JS API or redirect to the web app without the user having to re-enter their credentials).

User Interface

  • Enabled URL hyperlinks when exporting crosstab reports to XLSX format.
  • Added a validation filter condition to Teradata calculated field validation.
  • Updated the phrase "Automated Insights" to "Assisted Insights" throughout the UI for consistency.
  • Improved functionality which prompts the user to retain or cancel a scheduled task when running the task manually on the same day it is scheduled.
  • Optimized loading times for the Browse page by refactoring how restricted table columns are queried.
  • Tweaked the code for parsing browser width and height to improve chart sizing on the Report Chart page.


  • Added a new function to allow plugins to filter out email addresses before they are sent by Yellowfin.
  • Improved report broadcast scheduling to include the status of the report in the event of an error.
