SAP Data Intelligence Version 3.0

While not released yet, the SAP Help Portal already provides insights into Version 3.0 Patch 0 (3.0.0) for SAP Data Intelligence, the successor of SAP Data Hub.

It is great to see the New Features in SAP Data Intelligence, especially around Machine Learning and Data Science. You might get an idea of what this means from my blog Leverage SAP Leonardo Machine Learning Functional Services with SAP Data Hub. However, there are also some Changed Behaviours in SAP Data Intelligence especially:

Non-Root Enforcement for Docker Creation

Some of my custom Operators need custom docker files. For example SAP Data Hub GitHub integration. With Non-Root Enforcement for Docker Creation, The Docker container can no longer run as a root user. For all Docker images, you must add a user group and user:

FROM §/ RUN groupadd -g 1972 vflow && useradd -g 1972 -u 1972 -m vflow USER 1972:1972 WORKDIR /home/vflow ENV HOME=/home/vflow

A work around this could be my SAP Data Hub GitHub integration though.
