Goal

Dictionary changes are recommended to be done in the development environment.  In this case the working system of record with no changes is production.  Development will always have some in progress changes that have been committed or are being tested.  Once these are tested in Dev they are moved to Staging to be tested by the business at a system level.  Even with solid testing in dev and staging there can still be something that does not work or causes an index problem in production.  Prior to propagating to production it is recommended that the last working dictionary be backed up.

The steps below will outline the areas you can backup prior to performing a propagation. It will also provide the details on how to revert should you encounter an issue after propagation.
