For your scenario, I would follow the below way to identify the mandatory parameters of the view:
If the mandatory parameters are configured at the source level or at the Denodo layer with an interpolation variable, I would navigate to the VQL section of the view and look for the ***“CREATE OR REPLACE TABLE”*** or ***“ALTER TABLE”*** the VQL statements. Under the **ADD SEARCHMETHOD** section, you can see the field names with the parameter type - ***OBL or OPT***
* OBL - Obligatory
* OPT - Optional
> ***ADD SEARCHMETHOD (
For example: The view **“bv_student”** has 2 fields in which an obligatory field **“id”** which will be indicated in the VQL like below:
> ***CREATE OR REPLACE TABLE bv_student
> ADD SEARCHMETHOD bv_student(
> CONSTRAINTS (
> ADD id (=) OBL
> ADD name (=) OPT
Also, the view parameters defined in the derived views at the Denodo layer can be identified by ***“USING PARAMETERS (: type)”*** keywords in the VQL.
***CREATE OR REPLACE VIEW bv_employee.... USING PARAMETERS ( employee_id: text);***
Here, the **“employee_id”** field is a view parameter which in turn is an obligatory field for this view.
To get the VQL of the particular view, you can execute the below [DESC](https://community.denodo.com/docs/html/browse/latest/en/vdp/vql/describing_catalog_elements/exporting_metadata/exporting_metadata#:~:text=The-,DESC%20VQL%20DATABASE,-statement%20exports%20all) command from the VQL Shell
> ***DESC VQL view ***
For more information regarding the View Parameters, you can refer to [Parameters of Derived Views](https://community.denodo.com/docs/html/browse/latest/en/vdp/administration/creating_derived_views/creating_selection_views/creating_selection_views#parameters-of-derived-views) and regarding Interpolation variable, you can refer to [Creating Base Views from SQL Queries](https://community.denodo.com/docs/html/browse/latest/en/vdp/administration/creating_data_sources_and_base_views/jdbc_sources/jdbc_sources#creating-base-views-from-sql-queries:~:text=The%20query%20may%20have%20interpolation%20variables%20(see%20section%20Paths%20and%20Other%20Values%20with%20Interpolation%20Variables%2C%20which%20allow%20the%20SQL%20query%20sent%20to%20the%20database%20to%20be%20parameterized%20according%20to%20the%20specified%20query%20conditions) sections of the Virtual DataPort Administration guide.
Hope this helps!!
