Database Schema Legacy Information and Document Stores

Database Schema Naming

When upgrading an existing instance or creating a testing environment for an institution using the legacy database schema names, note that database schema names have received a re-work for this latest version of Blackboard Learn. Manual database schema name changes on an existing schema should only be done with the assistance of Blackboard Client Support.

When creating testing environments for a legacy environment, specify the legacy information in the database identifier option in the Blackboard Learn Installer as shown in the following table. The five CMS_FILES_* schemas have been merged into a single CMS_DOC schema.

Schema and Legacy Schema Names
Schema Name Legacy Schema Name
BBLEARN BB_BB60
BBLEARN_ADMIN BBADMIN
BBLEARN_STATS BB_BB60_STATS
BBLEARN_CMS CMS
BBLEARN_CMS_DOC CMS_FILES_* (CMS_FILES_COURSES, CMS_FILES_INST, CMS_FILES_LIBRARY, CMS_FILES_ORG, CMS_FILES_USERS)
