Use the ordering of refinements, as mentioned in this article

Logical example:

Model file includes view file for view: a
and has
explore: b
join: a

view: +a
dimension: newfield

explore c
join: a

Only explore c should include the newfield dimension.

This feature doesn’t seem to work for overridden fields (sql_table_name in my case).

Do you know of any work around this ?


view a: { sql_table_name: table_1;;}

explore c: { join a;}

view +a : { sql_table_name: table_2;;}

explore d: { join a;}

=> In both explore c and d, the view a will have table_2 as SQL source.
