When refreshing schema I want any columns that have been removed or changed to not persist

When refreshing schema I want any columns that have been removed or changed to not persist. Fore example if the source removes a column of data, I want that to be removed as well on the destination. Currently it just keeps the column and puts values in it as blank. Unless there is a setting I am missing that accomplishes this.
Thanks for your guidance and help!

Hello there! You are receiving this message because none of your fellow community members has stepped in to respond to your topic post. (If you are a community member and you are reading this response, feel free to jump in if you have the answer!) As a result, the Community Assistance Team has been made aware of this topic and will be investigating and responding as quickly as possible.
Some important considerations that will help your to get your issue solved faster:

  • It is best to use our topic creation template; if you haven’t yet, we recommend posting a followup with the requested information. With that information the team will be able to more quickly search for similar issues with connectors and the platform and troubleshoot more quickly your specific question or problem.
  • Make sure to upload the complete log file; a common investigation roadblock is that sometimes the error for the issue happens well before the problem is surfaced to the user, and so having the tail of the log is less useful than having the whole log to scan through.
  • Be as descriptive and specific as possible; when investigating it is extremely valuable to know what steps were taken to encounter the issue, what version of connector / platform / Java / Python / docker / k8s was used, etc. The more context supplied, the quicker the investigation can start on your topic and the faster we can drive towards an answer.
  • We in the Community Assistance Team are glad you’ve made yourself part of our community, and we’ll do our best to answer your questions and resolve the problems as quickly as possible. Expect to hear from a specific team member as soon as possible.

Thank you for your time and attention.

Hi, @tstuart! It should be possible to prevent columns that have been removed or changed from persisting. When refreshing the source schema, Airbyte will detect any changes and display them in the Refreshed source schema dialog. You can review the changes and click OK to close the dialog. Then, in the streams table, the stream with a breaking change is highlighted. You can fix the breaking change by selecting a new Cursor or Primary key. Finally, scroll to the bottom of the page and click Save changes. It is also recommended to reset streams when you save the changes. A reset will delete data in the destination of the affected streams and then re-sync that data.

Could you give me more details on your setup - Airbyte version, connectors, what you’ve tried so far?
