Ability to create BigSQL table from a single environment (i.e. QA) against parquet files stored in two different Cloud Object Storage (i.e. QA and PROD)

We create a number of simulated test data in our QA environment COS with BigSQL tables and Data Virtualization. Before upgrading from CP4D 3.0 to CP4D 3.5, we ran some simulated test BigSQL queries in our QA environment.


Now that our QA has been upgraded to CP4D 3.5 and our PROD remains at CP4D 3.0, we would like to have the ability to create BigSQL tables in PROD with CP4D 3.0 and point the BigSQL tables to COS in QA. In doing so, we hope to be able to identify any potential BigSQL performance related question in CP4D 3.5 vs CP4D 3.0 using the "SAME" COS in QA.


Without this ability, we have to copy tera bytes of data from our QA COS to PROD COS. This request comes from TS004689570, which itself comes from TS004342312.
