Release - GA (v1.0.0)

To install or upgrade the SDK, refer to instructions here.

New & Improved

  • Added support for a CLI configuration file to specify default options for dvp commands. More details here.
  • Improved speed and scalability of plugin operations:

    • Reduced startup time for plugin operations from seconds to milliseconds.
    • Improved memory utilization on the Delphix Engine to enable a large number of plugin operations to execute in parallel.
  • Added the ability for plugins to raise user visible messages with a custom message, action and output related to a failure during a plugin operation. Refer to the User Visible Errors section for more details.

  • Improved validation for type and range checks for autogenerated classes.
  • Improved security for the plugin's runtime when executed on the Delphix Engine.
  • Removed the Delphix Engine feature flag PYTHON_TOOLKITS as the Delphix Engine supports plugins built on the SDK by default. The Getting Started section has been updated has well.

Breaking Changes

  • The following fields in the Plugin Config were renamed:

    Previous Updated
    name plugin_id
    prettyName name

    Additionally, the plugin_id is now required to be a UUID with a format: [0-9a-fA-F]{8}\-[0-9a-fA-F]{4}\-[0-9a-fA-F]{4}\-[0-9a-fA-F]{4}\-[0-9a-fA-F]{12}.

    Detailed steps to detect and make changes.


  • Updated remote host operations to execute as the RemoteUser specfied instead of the primary environment user.
  • Fixed an incorrect user exception when the required plugin operation linked.post_snapshot was missing.
  • Updated run_expect to return an exit_code, stdout, stderr like other platform library functions.
  • Fixed run_powershell to not automatically redirect stderr to stdout.
  • Ensured that all exceptions raised by the Staged Linked Source Worker plugin operation are converted to faults for the user.
  • Enabled the MountSpecification to be constructed with mounts that refer to different environments.
  • Sanitized the Python stack traces from exceptions during plugin execution and removed paths that reference where the plugin was built.
  • Removed a spurious build warning for DIRECT plugins that incorrectly suggested implementing the Staged Linked Source Mount Specification plugin operation.
  • Removed a spurious message global name 'exit' is not defined which was displayed when a plugin library function failed.
  • Updated manualDiscovery to be optional in the Plugin Config. The default value will be True.
