### cron options

cron group configuration can be set in `etc/crontab.xml`.

-   `staging_apply_version` – each period of time checks in a table of updates if any [campaign](#campaign) has been started and if yes, it applies all [scheduled updates](#scheduled-update) for the campaign.

-   `staging_remove_updates` – each period of time checks if a campaign contains any update, and if it is empty, deletes the campaign.

-   `staging_synchronize_entities_period` – each period of time checks if start or end dates of a campaign have been changed. If it finds any changes, it applies same changes to all updates dependent from the campaign.

[Learn how to configure and run cron in Magento.](http://devdocs.magento.com/guides/v2.3/config-guide/cli/config-cli-subcommands-cron.html)

### Indexes and indexing modes

When update is applied, the indexer handles it according to the actual indexing mode. In a preview mode, indexing is not applied. Data is loaded for the open page only.

[Learn more about indexing in Magento.](http://devdocs.magento.com/guides/v2.3/mrg/indexing.html)

### Data migration

The Magento_Staging module uses the `\Magento\Staging\Setup\BasicSetup` class during installation. This class changes database schema and migrates data.

#### Migration of attributes with range

Each update attribute that contains a time range is synchronized with dates of campaign. Attributes with time range are removed from the UI.
