Advanced Use Case

Incorporating features that haven't yet been released

This approach is only advisable for teams with internal DevOps and technical resources, and a strong familiarity with PHP, Github, and systems management. There is always a risk to using in-progress code in a production environment, and doing so should only be considered when absolutely required.

Although rare, there can be occasions when institutions will find it necessary to incorporate a developed feature before it is generally available in a released version of the Registry. In these situations, it is possible to incorporate all or some of the work in the working "Develop Branch" of the code repository where the development team is committing their work.
