Steps to Reproduce


Root Cause

A software use or operation error. The database schema name is not set on the table definition. This causes a request looking for a schema that does not exist to time out by default.


Perform the following local-change: 

  1. Set the Schema definition on the table
  2. Ensure that all the nodes in the cluster are restarted to pick up the correct definition
Enter the schema name in the Schema name field.
Setting the Schema definition on the table
