Subscriber Website Database Request


E-mail Form

Content-only vs. Structural Changes

Changes in Production may require additional approval from the Change Approval Board (CAB), depending on the type of change requested.



Content-only changes do not require CAB approval. Requests will be performed as they are received.

Examples:

  • Insert records into tables
  • Update records
  • Export records between environments



Structural changes in Production involve downtime and require CAB approval. CAB meetings are held only once a week, and changes in Production can only be performed on certain days. Please expect a longer turnaround time and plan accordingly.

Examples:

  • Promote database from DEV/TEST to PROD
  • Restore database using backup file
  • Change column names
