Improvements for creating External Entities

Integration
New

Creating external entities is working ok, but could benefit from the following improvements:

1) Column name conversion. In (Oracle) Databases columns are named like "STREET_NAME". It would be nice that columns would  be renamed automatically to OutSystems standards (e.g. StreetName)

2) OutSystems checks that the identifier of an external entity is mandatory. If you base your entity on a column in a database view with a cast function for converting it to another datatype, the column in the database becomes null allowed.  It would be nice if OutSystems assumes that a identifier is always mandatory. It could give a warning message, but not a error message if the column in the database is not mandatory

3) When selecting a table., it would be nice to have a filter for selecting the tables/views. Selection by type (tables/views) and table/view name.
