June 2023 new features, fixes, and improvements

New features

  • 😍 Support for Querying JSON data and JSON data type. Snowflake users can now sync their VARIANT, OBJECT, and ARRAY columns as JSON to Propel. Read the blog post
  • 🛠️ New data synchronization controls are now available for Snowflake. Read the blog post.
  • 🌮 You can now provision demo data for TacoSoft, our imaginary B2B SaaS taco-selling application. The demo data will make it easier to experience the full power of Propel.
  • 🤓 We introduced a new METRIC_READ scope, which enables developers to list metrics without requiring full ADMIN scope. This new scope allows Propel Applications to retrieve and list Metric resources within the Environment, without being able to query their data.
  • ⛔️ We added new IS_NULL and IS_NOT_NULL filter operators for Metric and query filters. The value field in FilterInput is now nullable. If the specified filter operator is IS_NULL or IS_NOT_NULL, then the value field is not required. Otherwise, the value field is required, and the request will be rejected if it is not present.


  • Fix to allow modifying AND and OR Filters on Metrics.
  • Previously, a bug was triggered when customers provided an invalid Snowflake account, causing their Snowflake Data Source to become stuck in the "CONNECTING" state. This issue has now been fixed.
  • When creating a Data Pool, customers will be redirected to the correct link for tenant ID documentation.
  • When creating an Amazon S3-powered Data Pool, we now display the first empty sync instead of the "hang tight" graphic.


  • The documentation site has new styles ✨.
  • In the Console, the input to create a new Amazon S3 Data Source table is now ”Unique Name”, instead of “Name”. It will show an error when the name is not unique within the Data Source context.
  • In the Console, during Data Pool creation, customers will not see cached data after leaving the creation flow and returning, but it will be kept within the Data Pool creation session.
  • The Terraform provider now supports creating MIN, MAX and AVERAGE Metrics. It supports setting the cursor and sync interval for Data Pools, creating and updating Policies, and it is smarter about when to replace versus update a changed resource.
