Cannot create a model (we are on 0.42.2)


I am not able to see the 'icon' to create a model:

Wonderful if anyone has any suggestions ?

I have seen it on other installations we have - with exact same install/setup as far as I'm aware, only difference I can think of is this one looks at a snowflake data source, but I don't see how that would cause an issue.?

we are on 0.42.2

Thanks in advance

Hi @jazz78
I've never seen that before, but upgrade to 0.42.4
I'm wondering if you go to Ask question, so you list all database, and if you go back to the question, does it then show Models?

Hi @flamber just tried that as you said. It still does not show models. Do you suggest 0.42.4 as it is an easier upgrade, and/or less disruptive end user change compared to .43 ?

@jazz78 Yes, both. Make sure you clear your browser cache - and any proxy cache if you have, just to make sure that you're not getting frontend files that belongs to 41.

@jazz78 Have you perhaps disabled Nested queries on this instance? Admin > Settings > General.

@flamber :disappointed: Yes.. so sorry. Changed and is working now. I don't know how/when we set that as disabled, must be some historical thing, it honestly never crossed my mind to look at macro settings, sincere apologies for wasting your valuable time here.
