Bump! We started integrating Metabase at our company and need to deploy it for several different clients. We’d like to keep the metadata intact but allow the clients to create their own questions. The problem is how do we handle table additions and similar updates? Right now, when an update happens, we can either keep the client-specific questions and rewrite the generic metadata from scratch, or lose the client-specific questions and keep the metadata.
Although Metabase tries its best to infer as much as it possibly can about our large database, a lot of type information is still missing and many fields need to be corrected by hand (implying the need for a full manual inspection). This unfortunately renders it unusable in the long run.
Any effort that would push the project closer to scalability and manageability in such a scenario would be greatly appreciated! So far, we’ve had an amazing experience with the tool, and we definitely have big plans with Metabase. We will, of course, contribute any tweaks and improvements back to the community!
Thanks for Metabase, and thanks again for giving it such a sleek design.
