  4. Click the Edit Connection in the data design window toolbar.

    Edit connection button

    Edit connection schema

  5. Make the preferred changes and click Reconnect.

IMPORTANT: Reconnection will persist the dropped table(s), table relationships, data filters, and data configuration to widgets, unless the schema differs from the previous data connection. i.e., the reconnected database should have similar schema such as the previously connected database, which may exist in same or different location. If the reconnected database does not have a column that is available in previous one, reconnection will just ignore that column and its related settings and persist others. Beyond that level, reconnection will drop previous settings entirely.

NOTE: Cross-data source filter configuration handled in Filters Configuration window can not be maintained on reconnection even the schema is similar.
