Safe migrations

We just released a new update to our workflow: safe migrations. Safe migrations protect your production database from direct DDL. As of today you can now disable this protection on any production branch.

Previously, protection from direct DDL was enabled by default on all production branches with no option to disable it. With this change, when you promote a branch to production, you will now see a toggle that asks if you want to enable safe migrations.

Read more about why we introduced safe migrations in our latest blog post, “An update to our workflow: safe migrations”.
