  2. Scala 2.11

    It would be great if Databricks would support the latest version of Scala and a few previous versions similar to the way that it allows you to pick your version of Spark when you create a cluster.

  4. Support ability to group Spark Tables into "Databases" for folders.

    Support the ability to group Spark Tables into folders or "databases" so we can organize our datasets easier per client. Right now its a long list of tables. Hard to manage.

    Happy to announce that our third most requested feature has been released. You can now browse all databases in the UI as well as all the tabes inside those databases. Thus, you can organize your tables into different databases.

  5. chapter 2 notebook shold have right path: "val lines = sc.textFile("file:///dbfs/learning-spark-master/README.md") // Create an RDD ..."

    Learning Spark Chapter 2 Examples in Scala

    Example 2-2. Scala line count

    should have right path
    val lines = sc.textFile("file:///dbfs/learning-spark-master/README.md") // Create an RDD called lines

    Because this was executed from Initial Setup in the Overview notebook when the following was evaluated:
    os.system("cd /dbfs; rm master.zip; rm -rf learning-spark-master; wget https://github.com/databricks/learning-spark/archive/master.zip; unzip master.zip;ls")

  6. Product Feedback page (this page) showed date / time stamp on suggestions / comments

    Without a date/time stamp its hard to tell when an idea turned into a planned item or when a response to feedback was submitted.

  7. Provide Integration GitHub Service at the basic level rather then just the Professional Level.

    If you enable the GitHub integration option at the basic account level service, it would help us feel safe that we can invest our time and energy into developing our solution on DataBricks. As we grow we will move up to the pro level account. But right now we are unclear if our work is backed up and safe. This should not be a cost to you at all. So please please provide. Thanks.

    All databases are running distributed with a replica in another datacenter. Furthermore, we do database dumps every day and upload/save to S3, which has eleven 9 durability.

  8. Small Security Issue - Restrict DBC login screen to SSL

    DBC has a login screen where it is possible to access it via non-SSL. First it redirects you to ssl, but then once you have the jsessionid, you can request the non-SSL page.

    This sets off warnings and alerts when our security team does an audit of our publicly reachable servers.

    The request is to please always restrict the login screen to SSL.

    This is now possible. Inside Databricks, click on the question mark at the top right and then enter your search term where it says"Search Guide & Forum". This will search all the forum posts and give you links to the posts.

  10. Job status columns is displayed on the Jobs Page

    In the Jobs page, it would be good to have a new column for the status of the most recent job

    This is now available through most identity providers, which you can connect to using SAML 2.0. This is how most of the Databricks customers are doing MFA. Please let us know if you still would like to have MFA outside the SSO/SAML connectivity.

    This was just completed for Spark 1.4. This version of Spark is still being QA:d but we’re hoping to have an early preview of it in Databricks Cloud before the official 1.4 release.
