It is possible to update certain layer configurations after a layer is created, after data is stored in a layer, and even after the parent catalog is made Marketplace Ready. These changes are possible via the REST API, Data Client Library and the CLI.
For more information on which layer configurations are mutable and immutable post layer creation, see Update layer configurations.
Some layer configurations are immutable due to the severity of the data corruption likely to occur if such changes were made.
Changing immutable layer configurations requires the creation of a new layer.
