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.

    • Allow partial compare of schemas based on naming convention

      We manage ERP systems with larg schemas (150.000 - 200.000 objects) where only a small proportion - the custom objects - should be under source control / schema compared.

      To enable a decent use of Schema Compare for these systems, we would need to be able to compare schemas partially based on naming convention. Multiple assignments per schema should be possible, e.g. we want to match all objects for schema ABC matching the naming convention EE% and FF%

      • 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

        • 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.

          • Direct Comparison to Source Control

            Similar to the SQL Server Product, Source Control should be an option as a Source or Target for the comparison.

            • Objects included in the results - CommandLine

              Filter for object types in command line application (SCO.exe).

              There are several cases when to apply only changes for specific object types (i.e. package, procedure, function) instead of all differencies. Such as in GUI.

                • Add database-level objects to schema (database?) compare

                  I'd like the ability to compare schema, role and other database level objects for deployment. Most notably schemas (users) and roles.

                  • 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. :-)

                    • The function of Schema Compare that compares schemas with script folders has the problems that it ignores all extentions different than sql.

                      It would be useful to support files with different extensions, either by allowing to configure ignored extensions (all other will be treated as sql) or by allowing to configure extensions for specific types of objects.

                        What scenario are you trying to support here? We only support comparing to sql that we have generated initially and we always save the files ending in .sql.

                        It may work against arbitrary sql files (and I tend to fix issues when they’re reported) but it’s not something we “support”.

                      • 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.

                        • Schema Compare should be able to ignore system generated names for supplemental log groups

                          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;
