These screens make database schema modifications, therefore, these changes are done only on the development environment and then promoted via the Export for deployment functionality. When running Export for Deployment, the database schema changes are exported on the file system in the ~/App_Data/Sitefinity/Configuration/Deployment folder. The exported files should then be added to the project and committed to the source code.
Afterwards, the changes can be promoted to Staging and then to Production. Every time Sitefinity starts, it checks the ~/App_Data/Sitefinity/Configuration/Deployment folder and applies any changes detected there.
