If I have to save the VQL of an element that is generated using the Denodo Model Bridge, I would import the models and use the Virtual DataPort Administration Tool to export the VQL by following the below steps:
* Expand the **Virtual Database > ImportedModels** folder in the Elements tree.
* Right click on the element name and click on **Export**.
* Provide a name for the output file and save the VQL.
For more information on exporting the VQL, you could refer to the [Exporting the Server Metadata](https://community.denodo.com/docs/html/browse/latest/en//vdp/administration/exporting_and_importing_the_server_metadata/exporting_the_server_metadata/exporting_the_server_metadata#exporting-the-server-metadata) section of Virtual DataPort Administration Guide.
Hope this helps!
