[Epic] Platform Schema Governance and Guidelines
Open, HighPublic



As part of the new schema approach on Metrics Platform custom data will be deliberately deprioritised in favour of the new schema fragment approach.

In the past, it was possible to create new fields as needed as each schema was built individually even if there was overlap between them.

In the future, Metrics Platform needs to design and document both how it will govern expansion of schema fragments as well as provide guidelines for teams creating and submitting for review new schema fragments.
