Using the Data Editor

The Data Editor is a GUI tool to edit the live database. You don't have to use SQL queries with this tool; however, only those with advanced knowledge of SQL should have access.

There are risks when updating data directly in the database that include:

  • Bypassing all field validation such as correct formatting and proper data values.
  • Executing SQL statements using this tool bypasses DirectScale business logic. This can potentially put the data in a bad state, which can cause critical failures in any part of the DirectScale software.
  • There is not an option to undo changes.
  • Not all tables and columns are available to be edited for data integrity purposes.

Please use extreme caution when using this feature.
