Cannot migrate custom data table
When creating a class Data-Corr-BlockEmail using the data table wizard, even when the "create dedicated database table" is not selected.
It creates a table called HISTORY-DATA-CORR-BLOCKEDEMAIL.
" The bundle requires changes to the database schema. You do not have permissions to perform schema migration. Please download the SQL DDL, execute it and continue the wizard."
Steps to Reproduce
Import the .jar containing DATA-ADMIN-DB-TABLE HISTORY-DATA-CORR-BLOCKEDEMAIL.
User assumed that the "create dedicated database table" meant no table would be created which is incorrect.
The issue you reported is not a bug but actually as per design, it still follows the same pattern even in Pega 7.x versions.
The table being created is the history table for the class being created that is, data-corr-blockemail and this is automatic for Data- classes and not related to the "create dedicated database table" option. This option if selected will create a dedicated table for the concrete class and would have been named pr_data_corr_blockemail.
The way to stop a dedicated history class being created for these types of classes is how user solved issue is to change the database/AutoDBSchemaChanges to False, create class and then change the value back later.
