Disable created_by and updated_by

System Information
  • Strapi Version: 3.6.8
  • Operating System: Linux
  • Database: MySQL
  • Node Version: 14
  • NPM Version: -
  • Yarn Version: 1.22.5

Im working on an existing project where all the database had been published and populated with a lot of data, so i would like to prevent created_by and updated_by to be created when initiating the service.
I found populateCreatorFields in the documentation, but seems like those 2 columns are still being created also i had set populateCreatorFields to false.

This is my configuration. Did i configured it wrongly?

We do not directly support working with existing databases (especially those created by other applications than Strapi). The disabling of these does not stop their generation and creation of data in the database but won’t return them to the end users via REST, they are still required by other parts of the code (mostly the admin panel)

Hi Team,

Any workaround for connecting with the existing DB and deleting or disabling the default column name?

Thanks & Regards,
