Slack alerts link to incidents and STRUCT fields

Alerts in Slack link directly to declared incidents and column-level lineage for STRUCT fields.

From Slack to an incident

If you click on an alert related to an incident you or someone in your team created, you’ll land directly in the detailed view of that incident.

Support for STRUCT and nested fields in BigQuery

STRUCT

Our lineage now traces dependencies through STRUCT fields in BigQuery.

It can trace back to the top-level STRUCT, even when working with multi-level nested fields such as recordttable.rec.a.b.c.d.*.

It doesn’t matter if individual fields are selected at the top level and within nested STRUCTs.

You can read more about it in our docs: BigQuery STRUCT literal lineage.
