Segments in Revision Management



There are three production environments, Business Authoring (AUTH), Simulation (SIM) and Channel Facing (CF), with BAU changes flowing from AUTH to SIM to CF, mainly through Revision Management.

Issue occurs when a new segment is created in AUTH.

This is created outside of an App Overlay. Once added to the App Overlay, edited and packaged (via Revision Management), the Database Table rule and thus the schema definition are not included.

The issue this presents on deployment when they do not allow the Import Wizard to make schema changes.

Steps to Reproduce

Root Cause

Database table is not packaged as part of the Revision Package.


If the Revision Package is imported using Designer Studio >Decisioning >Infrastructure >Revision Management>Revisions import wizard, the database table instance and database table will be created using the activities available under segment class.
