Massive edit with search/replace strings

Sergio Sardo 7 years ago updated by Rafał Strzaliński (Senior Engineer) 7 years ago 1

If I need to change a substring in many objects at once (ie change all "xxx" occurrences in "yy_z") it seems now I can do so only looking field by field in all my tables. I'd like to have a "search/Replace" feature which allows me to change strings or substrings in all my object names (tables, fields, indexes, ...) ....

Could  I hope so in the future?



We had "bulk changes" functionality on our list with ideas, but we'll not implement it in a near future. 

You may download your model as an XML file and edit it by hand. If you're familiar with command line tools please check
