Development Workflow

The development workflow using ZenStack is very close to Prisma. The main difference is, instead of modifying schema.prisma file, you edit schema.zmodel to make changes to data models and policies and then use zenstack generate command to generate Prisma schema. After that, everything is just standard Prisma workflow, including generating and deploying migrations.

The following diagram illustrates a typical workflow for prototyping data model changes during feature development:
