Unable to add, alter or drop FKs or check constraints under admin tool ALT RFE 122297


In admin tool, I want to be able to easily add, alter and drop foreign keys and check constraints under the ALT functionality.

At the moment I can only access such features under the AL functionality.

This was raised as a PMR and I was told to raise this RFE.

Use Case
For example, I want to use ALT to add a column to a table, then still within ALT I'd like to create a check constraint on that column.<br/><br/>This is not currently possible.&nbsp; I am required to add the column with ALT, then create the check constraint with AL afterwards.<br/><br/>We would expect all AL functionality to be available within ALT.
