Keep only n rows in query editor => warning [DONE]


Feature request: when a user uses the “keep only n rows” in query editor, a warning should be displayed, or a specific message somewhere. Sometimes the user wants to test his job on sample and then on the whole dataset. But he can forget to cancel this n rows filter. This filter is very dangerous as it can hide data and the user should really be advised of such effect.

I say that because I saw several users falling in the trap.


In Business Objects for example if you have only partial data, you have a warning on the bottom right corner of the report

Is there will be a warning like in the screenshot below, would that be helpful?


Clearly ! But even with sorting or aggregating I think there should be a warning

We’ve added the warning. Shown when no sorting. Aggregation is ignored. Already available in the latest build on our website.
