HANA DB in the cloud: Deployment of HDI container drops all the tables created at run-time


Recently we moved our development to the Cloud.

Our MTA application uses HANA DB service in the cloud and creates DB tables at run-time (using CREATE TABLE statement). We also use HDI container to define and deploy DB artifacts to the cloud.

And we experience the following:

Each time we deploy our HDI it drops all the tables created by the app during run-time. All tables defined in the HDI remain intact.

Before cloud we used on-premise HANA XSA installation and there were no such effect: all tables (defined in HDI or created at runtime) remained intact after each deployment.

Is it a bug or a feature?
