Repair database schema from App Architect

Status: Under Consideration
by Silver Contributor ngaller on ‎06-10-2010 07:06 AM

I thought I had sent this already but I guess I forgot to hit Post, so here goes - sorry I am cutting it a bit short because I don't feel like retyping it all...

 

I would like a "Repair" option in App Architect that would rebuild the database schema based on the project's metadata.  

 

Key advantages:

* avoid need to separately bundle schema changes when shipping a web customization

* ease distributed development scenario (in case each developer have their database)

* serve as an "integrity check" of the project's metadata (the problem is that if there is a field missing in the database you will not find out about it until visiting the page where SalesLogix tries to access that field)

 

Thoughts:

* How to handle indexes and joindata?  

* Can picklists be handled in the same way (at least creating empty picklists where needed) - this might require associating the field with a picklist when editing an entity

* This should be interactive so that the user has a chance to review the changes before applying
