Thoughtspot Cloud Migration - Visualization Config Update

We have successfully completed the migration of Thoughtspot from the existing software version to the cloud version. As part of this migration, all visualizations were exported and imported, and a new configuration file was created. This file now contains updated visualization IDs, mapping them to the correct metrics and dimensions.

With this update, visualizations are now pointed to the appropriate configuration based on the dashboard settings, showing the relevant visualizations and tables for Thoughtspot Cloud in each report. Additionally, we have enabled Thoughtspot Cloud reports for all four locations, and the visualization configuration has been validated for specific metrics.

Composite Outfit UI - Product Exclusion Feature

We have introduced the Outfit Exclusion feature in the Composite Outfit UI that allows merchandisers to exclude specific products from the outfits associated with a given seed. With this enhancement, merchandisers have more control over the outfits displayed to shoppers, ensuring a tailored and relevant experience.

When viewing the outfits for a particular seed product, users can now select one or more products and remove them from the outfits. As a result, the outfits that include the excluded product will be automatically removed from the list, and the sorting order will be updated accordingly.

Additionally, merchandisers have the ability to review the list of excluded products and the outfits associated with each excluded product. If needed, they can easily include a previously excluded product back into the outfits. This action triggers an update to the list of outfits, reflecting the new sorting order based on the product's ranks.

Composite Outfit UI - Outfit Exclusion Feature

We have introduced the Outfit Exclusion feature in the Composite Outfit UI that empowers merchandisers to have greater control over the outfits displayed to shoppers. Merchandisers can now selectively exclude one or more outfits from the list of outfits associated with a seed product, allowing for more curated and personalized outfit recommendations. The exclusion of outfits is immediate, and the sorting order is automatically updated to reflect the changes.

Moreover, merchandisers can easily review the list of excluded outfits and include them back into the list if needed. This feature offers enhanced flexibility and control, enabling merchandisers to create a personalized and compelling shopping experience.

Enterprise Dashboard & MVT

Browse Sitewide MVT Configuration - Saving Bug Fix

We have resolved an issue with the Browse Sitewide MVT configuration that was causing problems with saving changes. Previously, after the initial save, buttons and links became unresponsive, requiring a page reload and re-editing the treatment to apply further changes. With this fix, the saving functionality is now seamless and uninterrupted, allowing for smooth configuration processes.

Jira: ENG-26273


New Metric - End-to-End Application Latency Tracking

We have introduced a new metric to track the end-to-end application latency of search requests from RRserver to the search service. Previously, this latency was not being monitored, and for completeness and performance analysis, it was necessary to create a dedicated metric for this purpose.

With the implementation of the new metric, the team can now accurately trace the additional latency added by the cluster service application during search requests.

Jira #



General Availability



Enterprise Dashboard:

Unable to fire Dynamic Experience with a Cart Value segment

We have resolved an issue where a client was unable to fire Dynamic Experience with a Cart Value segment on their Cart Page. The fix ensures that the "cv" parameter is now properly sent to the Targeting API, allowing the Dynamic Experience to work as expected. The issue has been fixed.





Cassandra read timeout errors in User Profile

We have fixed an issue with Cassandra read timeout errors in User Profile and APIWriter services. The fix involved configuring the Cassandra profile "batchstatereader" with a timeout of 3 seconds while refreshing the BatchAttributeStateCache. The issue has been fixed.




Streaming Catalog:

rrServer Module Testing Blocked due to Outdated Caches & ps_catalog Jobs

We have resolved an issue where rrServer module testing was blocked due to caches and ps_catalog jobs not being updated. The cache and model data are now being published to qa-rrserver, and the rule is present in the newly published caches. The issue has been fixed.




Enterprise Dashboard:

Social Proof Icon Display Issue

We have fixed an issue where the Social Proof Icon was not showing by default as part of the menu. The problem was related to the version, and we have updated it to v=1.0.1. Now, the social proof icon is displaying correctly without the need to clear cache or open in incognito mode.




Enterprise Dashboard:

Composite Outfit Exclusion Issue


We have fixed an issue where outfits were not being excluded for a particular client in the Composite Outfit feature. Previously, when trying to exclude outfits for a specific seed product, the exclusion was not taking effect, and excluded outfits were not visible in the "Excluded Outfits" section.

With the deployment of rrportal version 8.04.2 in QA, the problem has been resolved. Now, outfits are properly excluded for the client, and the excluded outfits are correctly displayed in the "Excluded Outfits" section.





Issue with guided Selling component while editing the Variant

We have resolved an issue with the Guided Selling component while editing the variant. The problem was introduced by a UX improvement that showed API client keys as a dropdown menu, causing non-employees to face access privilege issues with the API. To address this, we have removed the feature from Guided Selling.

The issue has been fixed. The clientAPI is no longer triggered when selecting the guided selling template on the 'template' page.
