Initialize delta flag for a Delta DTP in BW Bridge

Good day Community

Is there an option in BW Bridge to initialize the delta flag on a DTP with a delta load setting? There is an option in BW to initialize the flag on the info package. I cannot seem to find a similar option in BW Bridge especially since info packages are no longer supported. 
I searched for a similar option in BW Bridge but only found the delta initialization without data. 

Is the only option to load a full load and then initialize the flag by selecting the "delta initialization without data"?

Thank you

Regards

Hello @SulaimanS,

Not sure I understood your question/doubt. 
The first Delta is always a Delta Init. If target's data is deleted, the delta knows that and re-initialize. 
For example, if all requests created by the delta DTP are deleted from the target, the next request will be automatically a delta init.

But as you also mentioned, there's also the possibility to do an init without data transfer and then do a full load.

Hello BR

Apologies for the confusion. 
In BW, there was an option to initialize the delta flag on the info package
(From the info package > Select "Initialization Options for Source System" > Select the delta > Click on Delete)

When deleting this flag, one can reload data from the source system even if there were no changes. There is no flag in BW and therefore it would load the data again. 
Since there is no info package in BW Bridge, I do not find an option to delete this flag so that I can reload the data. 

I would like to reload the data again without deleting the requests and without creating a DTP to run the full load. The option in BW was to just delete the flag and then rerun the DTP and it used to load the data as expected. I am not sure if this functionality is still available in BW Bridge.

Thanks
