I have seen posts on similar grounds earlier, but my concern is little different from those...so posting again.
When i do a column change at DB level in one of the tables that are already there in TalenD metadata, should i be selecting all the DB objects to retrieve? because when i select just the table i want to refresh, rest all the tables are getting deleted from the repository, i even changed the option where it says 'delete all the tables'. My concern is, i am ok with refreshing all the tables but going forward when my job count increases i dont want to take the risk of refreshing changes when i don't solicit to change. Also the 'Detect dependencies' doesn't seem to be working the way it is supposed to, because my understanding when i right click on a object under metadata and ask for 'detect dependencies' it should be listing down all the job that have this specific db object (that i how it works in other ETL tools), if you have experienced something similar and found a work around, please share.
