Direct database access for Pega applications

Hello! There are a lot of data breaches and my company is leading an effort to limit direct database access. As you know, Pega is very database intensive. For example, we use SQL tools, such as SQL Developer, to verify our database tables, structure changes, JAR files in the pr_engineclasses table, rule counts after a release, etc. Is there a way in the designer studio that will allow me to verify db structure changes, browse db tables, etc.?

If I am unable to have direct database access, how can developers/architects verify database changes, JAR files, etc. in the database? The database administrators will retain direct access, but the application support teams would lose their access.

At a high level, it seems that we will have to write a tool that will replace our existing sql tools.

Has anyone faced a similar situation? Do you have any suggestions?
