In Denodo 7, when opening VQL file or exporting VQL, the default setting was to "Replace Existing Elements."
However, in Denodo 8, in Design Studio, when opening VQL or exporting VQL, the default option for generating code is to "Drop Elements before creating them."
This has created some confusion on the developer side as they open a base view, forget to change the setting to "Replace...", and execute DROP CASCADE script. If this is for a base view, it will drop all dependent views which are not always included in the VQL script.
DROP DATASOURCE JDBC IF EXISTS sql_db **CASCADE**
Where can I find the default setting for Drop Elements vs Replace Elements? In order, the setting for opening a VQL file is most important, but also exporting VQL as well. Thanks!
