The alignment and calibration workflows at the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment are fundamental to provide a high quality physics data and to maintain the design performance of the experiment. To facilitate the operational efforts required by the experiment, the alignment and calibration team has developed and deployed a set of web-based applications to search, navigate and prepare a consistent set of calibrations to be consumed in reconstruction of data for physics, accessible through the Condition DB Browser. The Condition DB Browser hosts also various data management tools, including a vi-sualization tool that allows to easily inspect alignment an calibration contents, an user-defined notification agent for delivering updates on modification to the database, a logging service for the user and the automatic online-to-offline condition uploads. In this paper we report on the operational experience of this web application from 2017 data taking, with focus on new features and tools incorporated during this period.
