Version: 2.13

Ververica Platform 2.4.1

Release Date: 2021-03-31




  • The SQL Editor now supports the "EXPLAIN PLAN FOR <statement>" command to show the query execution plan for DML and DQL queries.

Bug Fixes


  • Fix an API regression that disallowed specifying a DeploymentTarget in DeploymentDefaults.
  • Session Cluster deployments with HDFS Universal Blob Storage were not possible before this release. The required HDFS client configurations were not correctly forwarded, which led to failing Session Cluster deployments.
  • The ordering of environment variables specified via Flink Pod Templates is now deterministic and follows the user-specified ordering. Prior to this release, it was possible that the ordering changed between Deployment restarts.
  • Starting a deployment from a JAR file bundled into the docker image did not work, because the usrlib directory was not writable.


  • Autopilot now supports {flink} 1.12. Due to changes in Flink's REST API, Ververica Platform could not collect the metrics and hence not make scaling recommendations.

SQLite Persistence

  • SQLite's unique constraint errors were not correctly translated before this release. In rare cases, it could lead to an unrecoverable failure during the startup of Ververica Platform.
