How can we improve our Oracle tools?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. hide

    Add option to filter out object that EQUAL.
    In other words - show only differences/all/etc.
    Add ability to go Next Difference (when usig show all)

    • Be able to launch Schema Compare for Oracle from within Windows Explorer by clicking on the .ocp project file?

      Received a support request from a customer looking to start or launch a comparison by simply clicking on the project .ocp file.

      Many Thanks

      • Spilt the 'Ignore Constraint names' option into 5 separate options.

        The following suggestion is from a customer I performed a remote desktop session with.

        Current in Schema Compare there is a single option to ‘Ignore constraint names’ when comparing objects. The constraints are still deployed. The option covers Primary Key, Foreign Key, Check, Default and Unique constraints.

        Could this option be spilt up and replaced by the following 5 options:

        • Ignore Foreign Constraints when comparing and deploying.
        • Ignore Check Constraints when comparing and deploying.
        • Ignore Default Constraints when comparing and deploying.
        • Ignore Unique Constraints when comparing and deploying.
        • Ignore Primary Key Constraints when comparing and…

        • New option is needed to compare mviews as just tables (ignore mview definition)

          Due to DML-only replication requirements target schema might contain only tables for related mview in source schema. In this case current configuration of SC shows difference: mview exist only on source and tables exist only on target. This is not correct if compare tables only.

            • Severity: High Object: <schema>.<table> Title: UnsupportedDatatypeConversion Deployment cannot convert a DATE datatype to a TIMESTAMP(3)

              This can be accomplished with an alter statement. Why isn't the tool doing that?

              Thanks,
              Mike

              • Ability to select same schema as source and target specify scn or flashback time of both

                Oracle has a feature called flashback query/schema that allows you to view a table/schema as of a particular timestamp. For some projects, there is a need to identify all the tables inserted/updated/deleted by a particular application process.

                This would be an additional use case for Data Compare if it checked if flashback was enabled on the source and target schemas and allowed specifying a time.

                Then it could be used for my use case - i.e. identifying what impact a particular front end screen or batch process had on the database.

                It could also be used after a major incident…

                • When will Schema Compare support Oracle 12c?

                  Things like lack of support of JSON objects, default on null on columns statements, and table compression statements cause us to use script rather than moving through the tool. The tool works great for things that have full support and would love to be running everything through it.

                    We’re working on this now, identifying new features we need to support for 12c. The tools already have some fixes and more will come through in the next few versions.

                    If you have particular pain points let us know here and we’ll prioritize those.

                    We’re currently hitting issues attempting to alter identity columns breaking the entire Oracle database which is worrying.

                  • suport jobs

                    The tool does not support object type : JOBS .
                    The job belongs to the selected schema and the " schema compare / Source Control " ignores this type of object.

                    • Provide support for EZCONNECT Oracle connection strings

                      Dialogs for connection strings should permit pasting an EZCONNECT string and just using it.

                      • Include support for ignoring ignored items in subversion

                        Include support for ignoring ignored items in subversion

                        This is NOT the same as filtering out objects. Once an object is in the svn:ignore it is supposed to be dead to subversion until revived.

                          Schema Compare should be able to ignore names for supplemental log groups. I have many differences on tables that I do not care about like this (the names were generated by GoldenGate):
                          ALTER TABLE schemaname.tablename ADD SUPPLEMENTAL LOG GROUP ggs_84245 (columnname) ALWAYS;

                          • Selecting TABLES list from Excel / Text file ?

                            If the source schema has around 1000 tables and we want to compare only 500 tables. Its a very tedious job to select all the 500 tables manually in the TABLES options tab. If we have all the 500 tables list stored in an excel sheet,csv,txt format. It would be good if data compare tool GUI (or) command line utility has a way to read all the user defined tables list from the excel/txt/csv sheet.

                            • Need the filter capability that SQL Compare currently has

                              SQL Compare allows the user to use a customized filter to exclude specific objects, object types, or objects with a certain named pattern.

                              This would be extremely useful in the Oracle tool as well.

                                    • Merge grants (or similar)

                                      Here is the issue we are having.

                                      Two developers are working on different instances of the same database schema. If both of them add grants to the same user or role to different objects an issue arises when trying to commit to the repository.

                                      The user that commits second will have a conflict.

                                      If they choose the repository's grants for that user, they will lose their changes on their instance.
                                      It they choose the database's grants for that user, they will overwrite the other user's changes in the repository.

                                      It would be really nice to have one of these options…
