kenneth wood 12 months ago updated by hannah gryska 10 months ago 1

Background:

  • In Snowflake SQL, you can define comments on a View and on it's Columns.
  • Here is sample Create View SQL from Snowflake documentation:
CREATE VIEW v1 (pre_tax_profit COMMENT 'revenue minus cost',
                taxes COMMENT 'assumes taxes are a fixed percentage of profit',
                after_tax_profit)
    AS
    SELECT revenue - cost, (revenue - cost) * tax_rate, (revenue - cost) * (1.0 - tax_rate)
    FROM table1;

Request:

  • Add ability to maintain View description (comment) in SqlDBM like is done for a Table.
  • Add ability to maintain View Column description (comment) in SqlDBM like is done for a table Column.
  • Add ability to see/maintain these descriptions in the Database Documentation page, as is done for Tables and Columns now.
