CommCare Cloud release notes 2021-03-23

2021-03-23 Optionally configure auditcare db

Some enterprise deployments of CommCare use a backend feature called “auditcare” as part of their audit logging strategy. Auditcare is enabled by default, so it is active unless you went out of your way to disable it when you configured CommCare. Historically it has used CouchDB as its data backend, but it is being switched to use PostgreSQL instead. If you care about this feature then you may want to carefully consider this change log before your next commcare deploy; otherwise you can ignore.
