Question about databases

I have been trying to figure out how to do the following:
I have a stack that adds a mySQL database. I would like the database to have items in it before my students start to use it. I added items to my database, but when I publish the assignment, the students still have an empty database. Is there a way that the database can still hold what I have added?

Hey there,

When you do any CRUD work on your database, you’ll need to publish a new stack version in order for the new database changes to take affect. Just doing publish won’t work, as this affects things like files, settings, guide copy etc., but doesn’t push any database work done.
