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".

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

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

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

  1. 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.

        • Include a "Open project"-button on dialog upon start-up

          A very small wish....

          When I start the program, a dialog-window with the latest project worked on is shown. That is good as long as this often is the project I shall work on.

          But could you please add a "Open project"-button on this dialog.

          • Include policy-comparison for tables

            We are using Virtual Private Database on some schemas. These profiles are not included in current comparison.

            Please include this. :-)

                • 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…

                          the ability to broadcast releases/upgrades is in the Multiscript tool...but only for SQL. Please implement for Oracle! Potentially hugely beneficial for some real-world cases

                            • Allow Locking feature to work with automatic re-compiles due to PL/SQL invalidation

                              It would be awesome if the tool would let automatic re-compiles work with Locked objects when a package spec/body is invalidated by a change to another package. As it is now - and automatic re-compile (without a code change) is blocked by the REDGATE.CHECK_LOCKS database trigger.

                              Could Red Gate be changed to allow automatic re-compiles (as opposed to code change compiles)? Perhaps performing a checksum between the code and the Subversion repository could work (though this would require the database instance to communicate with the repository).

                              Thanks!

                                • Source Control for Oracle: Option to Resolve All Conflicts

                                  Currently we have to select if each conflict should be resolved using the database or source control version individually. In our environment we always apply changes to the database so it is always the master. Would be very useful for us to be able to say resolve all conflicts using the database copy.

                                  • Add the ability to delete items from the result list.

                                    often when I am going through a compare or check in list, I am looking at changes and looking for a set of changes to check in, or a set of changes to make a script for. As I'm going down the list, I would like to just remove matches as I go. Sometimes I want to remove a whole block, then resort by something else then remove another block, so I can quickly narrow results down (and often don't want to create a filter for this, becuase it changes, this is more of a one time thing). Now if…

                                    • Allow schema comparison from a specific revision of the repository

                                      When your source or destination is an SVN repository allow to select a specific revision of the repository.

                                      It is true that there are workarounds for this but it would save time to do it automatically in the tool because now either you have to checkout or update to an specific revision from the svn or you have to create tags in your repository for each version.

                                      • snapshot

                                        Create snapshot options should be similar to those in the SQL Server tool. We are currently limited to snapshot only from TNS and manual connection. We should have the options to create a snapshot from script file or source control. This is vital to our build automation

                                        • Keyboard Shortcuts

                                          The tool does not support keyboard shortcuts so a user must rely on slowly moving the mouse around to configure the app. An example is that to add multiple schemas, I have to click
                                          Edit Project --> put my hands on the keyboard to search --> back to mouse to select Next --> Next --> Move mouse and select Edit Project... continue

                                          Many developers rely on keyboard shortcuts to speed work and it is common in most UIs.
