What’s New in Aqua Data Studio version 23.0

Authentication and Identity Access Management Support

In this release, Aqua Data Studio introduces support for:

  • Amazon Redshift connections using AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) and PingOne with single sign-on credentials
  • Microsoft Azure SQL and Azure Synapse connections using the credentials of Azure Active Directory (AD) Multi-Factor Authentication

By supporting these authentication standards, our customers benefit from enhanced security of all their data assets, reducing the number of passwords that users need to remember and ensuring that a trusted party authenticates the user’s identity.

Expanded Support: Aqua Data Studio Adds Google BigQuery Access Worldwide

Aqua Data Studio version 23.0 introduces extended support for Google BigQuery data sources, enabling access from locations outside the US. Users now have the flexibility to query, create, insert, and delete datasets and objects in any BigQuery region.

Enhanced Database Platform Support in the Latest Release:

Aqua Data Studio version 23.0 introduces the support of newer versions of the following database platforms:

  • MongoDB 5.0.14
  • This release of MongoDB provides for the distribution of data across clusters resulting in faster processing of larger amounts of data. For Aqua Data Studio users, this translates to performance gains for the developers, database administrators and analysts working with those larger datasets. Users can now take advantage of these faster response times when creating, comparing, or running queries in the product. This performance improvement also benefits users when generating reports or graphs using Visual Analytics.

  • Informix 14.10
  • Aqua Data Studio now supports the latest release of Informix that delivers increased security robustness with Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.3 support.
