Configuring settings to automatically apply schema changes
You can configure settings to automatically deploy schema changes that are in an application package that is to be deployed on candidate systems. Configure these settings so that you do not have to apply schema changes if you do not have the privileges to deploy them.
Do the following steps:
On the candidate system, in Pega Platform, set the AutoDBSchemaChanges dynamic system setting to true to enable schema changes at the system level.
In Dev Studio, search for AutoDBSchemaChanges.
In the dialog box that appears for the search results, click AutoDBSchemaChanges.
On the Settings tab, in the Value field, enter true.
Add the SchemaImport privilege to your access role to enable schema changes at the user level. For more information, see Specifying privileges for an Access of Role to Object rule.
For more information about the database/AutoDBSchemaChanges dynamic system setting, see Importing rules and data by using a direct connection to the database.
Schema changes are also attached to the deployment report for the pipeline.
- Viewing deployment reports for a specific deployment
Deployment reports provide information about a specific deployment. You can view information such as the number of tasks that you configured on a deployment that have been completed and when each task started and ended. If there were schema changes on the deployment, the report displays the schema changes.
