Block a query
You can protect or block a query to prevent any user in your domain from modifying it. This is useful when, for example, you create a really complex query and you don't want it to be modified.
- Open the required query and select Additional tools → Query Info → Template from the query window toolbar.
- The below message will appear, warning you that next time you open the query you will work in Incognito mode, which means that changes will not be saved. Select Yes, mark now.
The query is now blocked, and this icon in the toolbar indicates that you are working in Incognito mode.
Users can still perform operations and modify a blocked query creating a copy. When a user performs any modification in a blocked query or click the Incognito mode icon, the following message will appear:
Select Yes, clone now to create a copy of the blocked query. The clone query will be automatically opened. Its name will be the name of the original query plus -copy, so that you can identify it.
