The SQL Virtual Table query gets validated both during Test and Create/Save functions

The SQL Virtual Table query gets validated both during Test and Create/Save functions. This allows us to wait for same amount of time to test as well as to create/save the SQL Virtual Table. IBM Support confirmed that this is a bug and can be fixed with an enhancement.

Who would benefit from this IDEA? Business users
How should it work?

Requesting for an enhancement to do the following.

  1. Validate Query using Test function and once validated, as long as tested query doesn't change, we should be allowed to save to create the SQL VT without validation

  2. When we need to change a query in SQL VT, test function shall be used to validate the SQL, but we should be allowed to save without validation.

Idea Priority Medium
Priority Justification We need to perform the workaround to avoid duplication of validation for large queries
