multiple entries in ossys entity table for an entity

multiple entries in ossys entity table for an entity

  
Hi,
I have observed that there are multiple entries for an entitty in the meta table (osssys_entity). Could someone please tellme what all are the reasons for creating a new table happens in outsystems?

Thanks,
thiru
Hi Thirupathi, how are you?

I don't think that is normal at all. Are you sure is the same entity from the same espace?

Thanks

Hi Pedro, 
I am good, how about you? yes this happens for the same entities of the same espace. One case can be whenever we delete the espace and do a publish again, it does create new entries in the ossys_entity table and old entries still exists.
In this way, I am curious to identify all the cases when all this happens.

Thanks,
Thiru
All good here!

Ah, I thought that you bumped into some kind of problem, but seems not :)

Bear in mind that the real identification of an entity is the SSKEY value. Are you looking into that?

Cheers,

No, its all good from the platform side, This is for my understanding only. i just want to understand the do we have any identified cases where this behaviour happens. Lets say,
when i add a new not null attribute to entity, will it create a new table or
When i delete a column or when i change data type of column. 
Just want to know whether there are any guidelines docs on what happens when we change entity.

Thanks,
Thiru
