Data import You can submit data import tickets to import a large amount of data to your databases at a time.
Data export You can submit data export tickets to extract a large amount of data for analysis.
Data tracking If specific data fails to meet your requirement due to reasons such as misoperation, you can use this feature to trace historical data changes. Then, you can execute rollback statements to restore data to the normal state.
Test data generation Some business scenarios may require you to frequently prepare data. In this case, you can generate test data to ensure data security and discreteness and improve production efficiency.

Therefore, you can develop and manage data warehouses in DMS.
Data service You can use this feature to export data at the field or row level, display data in a visualized manner, and publish API operations to Alibaba Cloud Marketplace for sale.
Database cloning You can use this feature to clone MySQL databases.
Tickets Ticket management You can use this feature to configure notifications about the approval or execution status of tickets. This way, DMS can send you notifications by DingTalk or email.
