Can't update the datashape of an existing infotable (with data)

Can't update the datashape of an existing infotable (with data)

Hi, I've updated the datashape on which is built an infotable called "myInfotable" that contains data (inside a thing), the update consists in adding a column.

I saved and even restarted the thing, but i can't see the new field i added from the datashape, but if i create a new property (on the same thing) for i.e. "myInfotable2" and populate with data, i can see the new field properly!

 

Since I can't delete the previous property because it stores important data, how can i fix this?

I found a workaround and this is:

 

- Create a service on the template or thing that runs this code:

me.appointments_list.AddField({
    "name": "appointment_guests",
    "baseType": "STRING"
});

 

- Run it on the things and the new fields will appear even on the existent infotable properties!
