Dataset settings - userModified

Dataset settings - userModified

Hello,

When we look into jsons with configuration of each dataset, there's this setting "userModified" under "schema" section.

Does anybody know if it's just a flag indicating whether user modified the schema or is it used for anything else?

In one of our datasets, it was set to "true" by Dataiku, but after merging two projects we have changed it to "false" again.

Not sure if that influences anything.

"schema": {
"columns": [
{"name":"COL_1","type":"string","originalType":"VARCHAR","maxLength":16777216},
{"name":"COL_2","type":"string","originalType":"VARCHAR","maxLength":16777216}
],
"userModified": false
}

Operating system used: Amazon Linux

Hi,

That flag being true indicates the schema was modified by a DSS user. If it was false it would mean the schema inferred by DSS was not changed. This flag was not tightly enforced in past DSS versions, so there would be false positives.

This flag does not really affect flow operations.
