I would like to see a "Clone Database" button in LifeTime, which copies the Production database backwards into the QA and Dev environments.
Each time a problem occurs on our production environment that can't be recreated on the dev environment for lack of similar data I get more and more frustrated with this platform.
When developing on a dynamic web platform you often need real world, live data to test a behavior, even more so when troubleshooting an unusual behavior that has been reported by a user. This necessitates being able to quickly and easily clone the production database into the development environment.
Unfortunately, OutSystems has an incredibly complex key and token system which turns a simple database clone into such a Herculean task it requires a 20 page technote! http://www.outsystems.com/home/document-download/1484/8/0/0
This is completely unacceptable.
I would like to see a "Clone Database" button in LifeTime, which copies the Production database backwards into the QA and Dev environments. This would make diagnosing complex and nuanced issues that happen in the Production environment much easier and greatly improve the RAD timeframe and lifestyle.
