Hi all

Just wondering if it is really necessary to take a planned DB backup before applying a change to the recipient extended schema? DB is about 10M records, I would not want to lock it by the schema update

We do have a planned backup/deployment in conjunction with Adobe in a few weeks but I need to add a field now for an urgent requirement

Cheers

Hugo

Hi Hugo,

Not necessary, you can directly add your custom attributes in the extended schema and update the database structure. 

Thanks,

Prem Kumar Ganesan
