I manage support for a master data management product. We have customers who have asked for a more public community site to share questions and answers in preference to or in addition to the existing technical support channels we offer.
dba.stackexchange.com seems like a natural place to accommodate this. But before I start directing anyone to use this site for that purpose, I wanted to check in with the moderators and regular users first.
Some of the questions I expect would undoubtedly fit here. "How do I write a view to show only a certain type of customer in PostgreSQL or MS SQL Server?" Everyone will welcome such a question here.
But something like these are less obvious: "How do I split this Golden Customer Record into two separate golden records? How to I enforce that changes to a record must be approved in a workflow?" The answer would explain how to configure our tool (data modeling type issues) as well as how to use the application (click here, click-and-drag there, etc).
An expansive reading of the needs of "Database Administrators" should include master data management and fuzzy matching and all the questions I anticipate. But a narrow reading could easily say, "Telling someone how to configure fields in a form to conditionally display or how to render in markdown is really not the stuff of a DBA."
So the question [finally]: Is it appropriate to direct users of an MDM platform to ask their questions here even when some of the questions won't be pure database questions?
