Feature Request: Ability to create an environment, with the DW connection information being optional

Brad 7 months ago updated by Retinder Labana 7 months ago 2

Currently, when creating an environment, it is required that DW connection information be added, or the environment can't be saved. Currently, we are not using this feature due to this behavoir.

However, there could be a need for a logical / conceptual environment to be established in the project, as it may not yet exist,  perhaps until the overall data solutioning is complete. 
If it physically exists, the credentials may not yet be known yet needs to be in the project.
Another use case is where an environment is needed for modeling / diagramming, but may never transition to a physical one.

Thank you for submitting this Idea ticket. We will pass this along to our Product team. Thanks!

Hi Brad, 

I just to confirm that the issue you are facing is having to use a "DW connection" when establishing the environment

I would like to inform you that we do allow users to upload DDL rather than using the DW Connection. If you click on the upload icon found on the top right-hand side of the Environments Settings. It will allow you to upload DDL

Once you select Upload DDL option you will see the following screen

In this screen, it will allow you to paste your DDL

Please let me know if this is the enhancement you were looking for.
