Is there any way to run a query against the Data Explorer without having that query be saved forever? I'd really like to be able to do some experimentation without polluting everyone's searches with my half-assed SQL.

  • In a strict sense no, because it's important to know who ran what. But better query management from a UI perspective is on the todo list. – Tim Stone Jul 1 '14 at 18:52

    @VotetoClose It's more about identifying abusive users if necessary (people running expensive queries to slow down the system, etc.), but for the normal user there should be a way to hide junk queries. – Tim Stone Jul 1 '14 at 19:00
  • @TimStone I would consider this a dupe, as adding ability to delete is equivalent to being able to query without saving. Isn't it? – ShaWiz Jul 1 '14 at 19:49
  • @ShadowWizard It's two sides of the same coin, perhaps. I don't feel that strongly about it either way, so vote as appropriate. – Tim Stone Jul 1 '14 at 19:49
