Engine schema modifications and migrations


#1

Before I strike out and try to invent something, I wanted to know if
anybody had addressed this issue.

We are using the login/user engines to manage security, etc. We have a
need to add columns to the user and permissions tables. Is there any
standard way to override / augment the engine migrations without
hacking those in the vendor directory? IOW, I’d like to add/override
some migration functions in some way similar to the way we override
views/controllers.

Any thoughts?

There’s no reason why you can’t drop or add columns to the tables
which are created by the engine migrations - you just need to be
careful about the order in which you migrate your systems (i.e.
probably engines first, and then your specific application migrations
second).
