Updating query subjects

If you are using a relational data source, you can choose to update only the query subjects instead of performing a full project synchronization. You must perform a project synchronization to synchronize changes in another data source.

The query subject is updated based on the definition in the data source. When you update a query subject, new metadata is fetched from the data source and query items are re-synchronized.

You can also evaluate the query subject, if it is from a relational data source Validating query subjects.

You cannot use the Update Object command for model query subjects.


  1. Select one or more query subjects.
  2. Click Tools, Update Object.
    Tip: If you modify the SQL statement in the Query Subject Definition dialog box, an Update Object operation is initiated when you click OK.
