  • The next major release of Dash Deployment Server will support only Python

    3.6.8, 3.7.3, and 2.7.16. If your app uses an older version, please update

    the Python version found in runtime.txt. This change can be made now,

    with DDS 3.2, so that you're ready for the next release. (Customers using

    DDS in airgap mode should contact our support team for more information.)


  • Dash Deployment Server now has limited support for high availability

    via Kubernetes for Dash Apps. For more information, please contact your

    sales representative.

  • Admin users can deploy and modify Dash Apps owned by any user.

  • Dash Deployment Server can now provide Postgres databases to Dash Apps.

  • Dash Deployment Server now exposes a GraphQL API to allow automation and

    integration with 3rd party tools.

  • Chart Studio includes plotly.js version 1.48.3, which includes:

    • New funnel, funnelarea, waterfall, sunburst and volume trace


    • Shared coloraxis settings

    • Cross-trace compatible histogram bingroup

    • Updated topojson base layer data for geo subplots

    • Numerous sankey improvements

  • Dash Deployment Server and Chart Studio can now use external Postgres

    and Redis databases. See the "External Databases" chapter of the

    On-Premise instructions for information on how to configure them.


  • Improved mobile support in the Dash App Portal.

  • Dash App ordering can be changed in the Dash App Portal.

  • A new Support Bundle generation workflow is available in which a support

    bundle upload is not needed. This only works for non-airgapped installations.

  • When viewing plots in Chart Studio, we ensure that the plot area fits

    the viewport dimensions without needing to scroll.


  • Dash Apps can now be shared with LDAP groups without adding the group to

    Dash Deployment Server first.

  • Improved error messages are shown when Dash App deployment fails.

  • The Dash Proxy Timeout value now applies to all components used by Dash

    Deployment Server to serve Dash Apps.


  • Server-based parsing has been removed from Chart Studio. The "Upload Data"

    button in the "My Files" section now uses the same client-based parsing

    engine as the "Import" data in the "Create" section, and some files may be

    parsed differently. The /v2/grids/upload, /quandl, /proxy/plot, and

    /proxy/grid endpoints have been removed, and the /external endpoint only

    accepts data in CSV and Plotly Grid JSON formats.

    if you need an updated license file.

  • Large request headers (up to 16k) are now supported for Dash Apps.

  • Server side parsing (accessible via the "Upload Data" button in Chart

    Studio's "My Files" section and from the /v2/grids/upload endpoint) has

  • The Dash App Portal offers a fully configurable and themable list of

    Dash Apps on your Dash Deployment Server, intended for end users to browse.

  • Dash Deployment Server now works in airgap (fully offline) mode. See the

    airgap chapter of the On-Premise instructions for information on limitations,

    including the need for you to set up a PyPI mirror.

    • barpolar traces, which replace and augment area traces.

    • parcats (aka parallel categories) traces.


  • Dash App authentication is now performed by Dash Deployment Server,

    simplifying configuration and avoiding the need for the dash-auth

    package in most cases. If dash-auth is currently in use, you should

    upgrade to dash-auth==1.3.0 or newer, or else users will need to log

    in twice per app. See the

    authentication documentation

    for details.

  • An updated license file (.rli) is required for all customers using airgap

    (fully offline) installations. This should be installed before upgrading to

    this release. Contact Plotly On-Premise Support

    if you need an updated license file.

  • Customers who are upgrading from older Plotly On-Premise releases will need

    to ensure Replicated 2.31.1 or newer is installed before upgrading.

    Attempts to upgrade Plotly On-Premise to 3.0.0 or newer without doing this

    will fail with an error.

  • Dash Apps are no longer managed from "My Files" in Chart Studio. New apps will not appear in this view, and existing apps may not be updated. To manage app permissions, use the app's settings page in the Dash App Manager. For a user-visible list of applications, use the new Dash App Portal.

  • The PDF reporting endpoint for Dash Apps has been changed. See the API documentation for details.

  • The Chart Studio editor is now based on react chart editor, offering more trace types and more control over plot styling.

  • The Plotly White theme is used by default in the Chart Studio editor.

  • Collaboration workflow changes:

    • When a plot but not its underlying grid has been shared with a collaborator, the collaborator can edit the styles of the original plot without making a copy of the plot.

    • Collaborators cannot change the names of the plot or grid files that were shared with them, and cannot add new grids to shared plots (only the owner can do this).

    • When a folder is shared with a collaborator, all files within the folder are also shared.

  • The Dash Deployment Server now automatically redirects to include a trailing slash on Dash App domains. Dash apps will no longer be accessible without a trailing slash. This may pose an issue if an alias is being used for the DDS domain name and no trailing slash redirection occurs.

  • The SP Metadata URL will need to be updated if SAML was previously enabled. All authentication-related requests are now under a new /Auth path. The SP Metadata URL will be updated to reflect this change and the SAML IDP will need to be updated with this new SP Metadata URL.


  • Sharing a plot in private link mode no longer adds the share_key twice to the URL.

  • Various Dash Deployment Server stability fixes.

  • Backend PLOTLY_CUSTOM_STYLE works again.

  • Themes were tiered on onPremise instances, fixed.

    be removed in a future release in favour of the new and more powerful Falcon

    SQL Client features.

  • The next release of Plotly On-Premise will include a new Chart Studio editor.

    As a result, certain functions within the Chart Studio editor are now

    deprecated and may be removed: GeoJSON, certain MapBox styling options,

    analyses other than curve-fitting and moving-averages, the ability to create

    animations, the ability to configure mobile breakpoints, and per-data-point

    annotations. Please contact us if you are still using these features.

    • 3D cone and streamtube traces

    • splom traces

    • ability to interactively change length and rotate line shapes

    • much improved ohlc and candlestick traces.

    prevent issues related to building Docker images on systems behind

    SSL interception proxies.

[2.3.3] - 2018-02-20


  • no_proxy/NO_PROXY environment variables are now set during Dash App

    Premise backend, even when an HTTP/HTTPS proxy is in place.

[2.3.2] - 2018-02-16


  • HTTP and HTTPS proxy variables are now set during Dash App builds when

    that the Streaming Domain Name and Certificate for Streaming are

    still correct.
