Share and upload recent unsaved local changes via a Patch

This feature allows you to save (or write) a patch that they can then upload and apply to their local workspace. More details here.

Release a new version of your data model and make it available to consumers

Test new data model versions

You can depend on another project's "HEAD" version to dynamically pull in and review incoming changes. As a data producer, you can more safely release new project versions because your consumers can test any data model changes before updating to a new released version.

Create patch release

You can create patch release from any of the previous released versions of your studio project by following below steps

  1. Create a patch from the previously released version of your project.


  2. Create a workspace from the patch you just created.


  3. Make changes to your workspace and commit them.

  4. Create a review and get it approved, merged.


  5. Once you are done with making changes and merging it to the patch you can release it.
