Business value

On average, customers use the database refresh copy process at least once a week. Today, customers must use the self-service action to trigger the refresh, which impacts the Standard Acceptance Test environment availability during business hours. RESTful APIs will allow customers to implement the activity during off hours or as part of their nightly build process.

Feature details

Lifecycle Services (LCS) will expose RESTful API endpoints. Documentation that covers how to authenticate and make the appropriate calls to trigger refresh will be provided. This functionality can be exercised by using Azure Logic Apps or other recurrence engines to provide scheduling and automation.
