exMon DM 3.1 - Release Notes

Release notes for exMon DM Release 3.1

Created by: Gunnar Tómas Gunnarsson

Our June 2021 exMon DM 3.1 update mainly contains big improvements to already existing features. If you would like to upgrade to exMon DM 3.1 contact us here.

Convert database tables to exMonDM tables

Users can now select tables that exist in the exMon DM Database and convert them to exMonDM tables. 

Fivetran improvements

In our last version, we introduced the Fivetran data connectors feature. We have now made some improvements for better usability. Tables will now be converted automatically to exMonDM tables and will be located in the Fivetran project folder. 

Required Columns

New property to table columns indicates whether the column must include a value. This property is set for each column in the Table Designer.


If the table does not contain a value in a required column an error icon is displayed indicating that it's missing and a message is shown before saving to ask the user if they want to ignore the errors.

Database User Improvements

Database users can now be given permissions to create stored procedures, functions, views and tables across all schemas to the database user has access.

Table Indexes

System columns can now be added to custom exMonDM indexes.

Open table in the browser

Users with web enabled can now open their tables in the browser from the desktop application. The 'Open in Browser' button is located in the Advanced tab of the Table Editor.
