Expand the functionality of VIEWTABLELIMIT

VisionBI | Jurgen shared this idea 3 years ago

Currently the VIEWTABLELIMIT configuration applies to:

  • Datasource page connection test table list (no functional purpose, other than to give feedback that it can see tables)
  • Freehand SQL page (no functional purpose, shown as a reference)
  • View Creation page (tables listed for the purpose of creating single table views)

The issue we face is when building a multi-table view off a datasource with 10,000+ tables, the View Builder still slows to a halt as it is displaying all tables. We would like the VIEWTABLELIMIT to apply to the View Builder as well, and then be able to search for additional tables which fall outside of the view limit.
