A layer can be reconfigured by anyone with manage permissions for the catalog that contains the layer. However, there are a few layer configurations that cannot be edited, such as:
- Layer type
- Volatile package size
- Streaming throughput
If you want to change any non-editable layer configuration, you need to delete the catalog, which deletes the layer and its data, then create a new catalog and layer.
To reconfigure a layer using the platform portal:
- Click Data.
- Browse to the layer you want edit and select the layer to open it.
- Click More then click Reconfigure layer.
For information about the configuration fields, see Create a Layer.
