Nexla's Powerful New Resource Search Interface

With Nexla's new powerful and flexible API-powered search interface, customers can quickly and easily locate any resources or data of interest, no matter how many resources are in the user's account.

The search interface is available in screens in the Integrate and Discover sections.

In the search interface, users can apply filters using keywords and assigned values to rapidly identify individual resources or groups of resources. Queries can include keywords corresponding to resource parameters including the name, description, connector type, current activity status, tags, and many more.

📢 Highlights:

  • Queries of Any Complexity – Combine keywords to create resource queries as targeted or broad as needed for any use case.
  • Paginated Results – Resource lists are now paginated for faster loading and efficient navigation.
  • Bookmark & Share Queries – When a query is performed, the URL is updated to include all applied filters. Bookmark this URL to quickly access the query again later without re-entering the search terms, or share the URL with other users.
  • Nexsets by Attributes – Use the attr_name keyword in the Nexsets and Discover screens to locate all Nexsets containing a particular attribute.

Introducing the redesigned Nexla UI

Today, we're super excited to bring a major design update to the Nexla UI!

With this intuitive UI, using Nexla's powerful platform to complete any aspect of data operations is simpler and more efficient than ever.

Here's a look at what users will find in each section of the new Nexla UI:

  • Overview: The first screen shown after login displays at-a-glance statistics and flow information about the user's account. From here, links allow users to dive deeper into details or jump directly into an associated task.
  • Integrate: This section is the hub for creating and modifying data flows. Easily ingest, transform, and send data from anywhere to anywhere, all in one place.
  • Discover: Here, users can find all accessible Nexsets. Nexsets are now searchable, giving users a quick and efficient way to find and use any needed data.
  • Collaborate: The Nexla platform provides granular access controls for every data flow and component. Now, the Collaborate section makes understanding and managing these accesses simple.
  • Monitor: All of Nexla's robust monitoring information and functions can be accessed in this section. Users can complete any troubleshooting or governance task directly within the screens available in the Monitor section.
Check out the video below for a quick overview of the key aspects of this redesign.

Introducing Nexla’s New UI: Easy and Efficient Data Operations for Everyone

We’ve rolled out a re-designed experience to make Nexla more intuitive than ever before. We’ve heard your feedback, and now we’re delivering.

The new version of the interface is now available as a live preview! It can be dismissed at any time during the trial period. We expect the trial period to end with a general rollout in October, at which time the old version will no longer be available.

📢 What's changed?
Using our platform is now more intuitive, more efficient, and more powerful for all our users and for all aspects of data operations - that was our goal when we started designing this new interface. We hope you like this new framework, as it will be the building block for changes in the coming months!
  • Efficiency & Ease of Use – With this new layout you can quickly locate and access all information and features you need for any workflow. Left-hand navigation has been upgraded to focus on what you need most: to build, discover, collaborate, govern, and monitor your data flows and data products.
  • Streamlined Monitoring Processes – All of Nexla’s data flow monitoring information and functions can now be accessed from the Monitor section. Users can conduct any governance or troubleshooting task directly within the screens available in the Monitor section.

"Operator" User Access Role

A new user access role, "Operator", is now available in Nexla.

Users with Operator-level access to a data flow can pause and/or activate the resources—such as the source, Nexset(s), and destination(s)—included in the flow. Operators also have all permissions granted to Collaborators, including the ability to view all information about the flow resources and use them in other flows and/or Nexsets.

When sharing a data flow with another user using the Access tab of the Data Flow Information screen, the Operator access role can be assigned to the recipient by simply selecting the "Operator" option from the pulldown menu before granting access. 

Data Flow Execution Insights and Error Monitoring

With our latest product update, Nexla provides flow metrics, processing logs, and error insights during data flow creation and execution. 

Users can easily monitor the progress of each component of a data flow, know the number of records processed by each component, and visualize detailed processing logs of each component - all on one screen. Additionally, users can also view component-level metrics and logs for previous runs. 

Flow logs also contain relevant error logs, so when an error occurs in any step of a data flow, users can now easily troubleshoot their data flows by using a combination of flow logs, error data feed, error notifications, and error metrics.

A brand new Nexset Designer!

We are delighted to share an early holiday gift with you! When you login to your Nexla account you will see an upgraded Nexset Designer for data transformations. This is a big upgrade that brings an even easier and more powerful transform system applying elements both from user feedback and our product vision. A full tutorial for the new interface available to watch here Some of the highlights we are excited about include:
  • Nexset Rules: Transformations, Filters, Validations, Annotations all come together into a single entity as Nexset Rules.
  • Transform : Easy visibility in Nexset details view removes the need to pause/edit Nexset to see the transforms, filters, validations applied to a Nexset.
  • Save and Continue: Save rules for a Nexset as you work to create transforms in Nexset Designer, not just when closing the session.
  • No code transforms for Arrays and Nested Objects: By popular demand, even more advanced capabilities within reach of everyone.
  • Output Data Schema gets better with ability to hoist new attributes up to the root level. This also up-levels multi-value lookups
  • Recommendations for data transformations are here.
