FullConstruct's boaConstructComplete field display should be configurable

This is one of several instances where the developer should be able to configure how Construct Auto Gen configures the FullConstruct Page and Excel Integration Columns.

We prefer to configure boaConstructComplete as Disabled in Views and Hidden in Excel.

We use a Stored Procedure as a Workaround to insert a record in the PageColumn table to hide boaConstructComplete in Excel.

    Autoconstruct was meant to be a jumpstart to building DCS pages and is not expected to create perfect pages as you specifically want them on build. It is expected that the user would build when necessary, then manually modify the page as they see fit. In order to prevent those changes from being overwritten, there is a setting called 'Construct Auto Gen Level' on the vertical view of the Full Construction Target Source. I have pasted the DSP Help related to the field below. You should not need to run any stored procedure to bring back your changes if you use the below setting. 


    Construct Auto Gen Level

    This option controls whether the Construct page is updated or overwritten. Values are:

    • Off - Construct objects and pages are not generated.
    • New - Adds new fields to the page table and new column properties to page. Does not rebuild page views. (You will have to manually add new fields to your Hor and Ver views)
    • Rebuild - Drops and recreates all views and column properties and adds new fields to the page table. 

    NOTE: This field defaults to Rebuild.


    I have attached a screenshot for you to review.  On a side note, I think we can consider making the boaConstructComplete flag itself configurable.
