Repository tools command for adding or updating database tables

Use the addTables command to migrate a database to a newer release.


The addTables command is used to add or update tables in an existing database. This command is used when a Jazz-based application is migrated to a newer release, or when a component that includes database schemas is provisioned into a Jazz-based application. The addTables command also performs an online migration command in the background for the Change and Configuration Management application. For more information about the online migration command, see Repository tools command to run an online migration.
Important: You must shut down the server before you run the command.
