I have a file geodatabase table added to QGIS. How can I show field name, not alias in the attribute table? (Or delete the aliases)

In ArcMap I can set it in Layer Properties

The name, set in ArcGIS is F20, QGIS displays the alias "20":

    How did you get aliases from a file GDB ? when I add data from a file gdb (using the OpenFileGDB driver on QGIS 3.16.4) I only see the field name and not the alias (and in the field tab of the layer properties alias field are empty)

    try to open the layer properties in QGIS and in the field tab delete the alias (or set it to the same as the field name) it could work

  • @J.R QGIS 3.20.2 shows alias name as in the image. Sep 14 at 10:31
  • I cant edit the field aliases (or anything in the fgdb table, maybe I'm missing the driver)

  • Open "Layer Properties -> Attribute Form"
  • Delete aliases.

This works just in the project and doesn't change the layer source.
