Alias for virtual tables


Hi there,

I have a couple of virtual tables and I want to deploy my application on several spaces with different remote databases.

When im deploying my application first of all I have to manually replace my RemoteSource and DatabaseName within the Virtual tables and the .hdbvirtualtableconfig.

Is there any way to create something like an alias configuration or application variable?

I would like to change my RemoteSourceName and DatabaseName in one place only. For that I want to use an alias which will replace placeholders in the Virtual tables and in the .hdbvirtualtableconfig.

Something like key in the mta.yaml which can be used as an alias for synonyms for example.

Virtual table:

Some Config, which hopefully exists:



Future Virtual table:

Thanks in advance!
