1 For backend data stores that support schemas, the Metadata Exposed Schemas option can be used to restrict the exposed schemas to a single schema. Metadata Exposed Schemas only affects the metadata that is displayed in the Schema navigation pane. SQL queries can still be executed against tables in other schemas. For details, see the parameters topic for your data source type.
