Update sets tables

Each update set is stored in the Update Set [sys_update_set] table, and the customizations that are associated with the update set, which are entries in the Customer Update [sys_update_xml] table, appear as a related list on the update set record.

When a tracked object is customized, a corresponding record is added or updated in the Customer Update [sys_update_xml] table and is associated with the user's current update set. The associated application file properties are tracked and transferred along with the customized object in a single update record. A corresponding record is also added to the Versions [sys_update_version] table.

The Customer Update table contains one record per customized object, per update set. The Versions table contains one record per change to a customized object.
  • Administrators can compare two versions and revert to a specific version of an object.
  • Administrators can suppress versions for specific tables.
  • Administrators can specify fields on tracked tables that you can change without skipping updates to the rest of the record (exclude the field from the update).
Note: Do not directly modify Customer Updates [sys_update_xml] records.
