Add Database Schema back to iNavigator

I have many users who require access to Database schema via iNavigator.
This function is not available in "new" iNavigator and my users are forced to use the heritage version, which requires me to go manually start Admin2

It is unrealistic to ask these users to switch to SQL based solution.
Please add Database/Schema back to iNavigator.

    The Schema support is available and sully supported as part of the Access Client Solutions interface. We have no plan on adding to Navigator at this time

    Have you considered getting your users to use the Database Schema Functions in the ACS client? They are comprehensive, performant, secure and most of all available to use today

    If there is any specific function you are missing, then you could add that to an idea to Enhance ACS, this tool just like Navigator for i is being actively developed but has a huge head start in this area.

    I hope this helps
