Redash v2.0.0 Released


Finally a new major release! :raised_hands: You can review the full CHANGELOG, but some highlights of this release:

  • Direct Athena data source type (no more need for the Java proxy :facepunch: ).
  • New MemSQL data source type and updates/fixes to the MySQL, Google Analytics, Presto, MongoDB, Cassandra, JIRA, TreasureData, InfluxDB, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, and BigQuery data sources.
  • New Plotly based Box Plot visualization along with improvements to the Pivot Table, cohort and counter visualizations.
  • List parameter type.
  • Friendly API key dialog for queries along with usage examples.
  • Auto-publish queries when they are named (with option to disable; see #1830).

This release wouldn’t be possible without the help of @mfouilleul, @dotneet, @rmakulov, @deecay, @fbertsch, @rockwotj, @alexanderlz, @laughingman7743, @ziahamza, @yamamanx, @miketheman, @eyalzek, @alexpekurovsky, @ahamino, @jvanegmond, @suemoc, @44px, @amarjayr, @unixwitch, @danielerapati, @yershalom, @msnider, and @alison – thank you, everyone :pray: .

Thanks @arikfr; can you help me locate the documentation for the parameters in embeds please?


Are you using the hosted version of Redash (


Yes, it’s hosted by redash.


Hey @arikfr, can you direct me to the documentation for the parameters in embeds (we are hosted by Redash). Thanks, Paul.


@prg281 parameters in embeds are not supported in the hosted version due to security concerns. We have plans for a secure implementation but it’s further down the roadmap.

Btw, as a paying customer you can use our direct support (the chat bubble icon in the app). We asnwer there much more frequently :slight_smile:
