How can we improve our MySQL 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 vote and comment on it.

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

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

  1. Add decent line breaking in view definition comparisons

    Now, the whole view definition is on a single line and the compare display is worthless. Please add line breaks in the definition statement (just for display) so the statement can be inspected. Maybe just replace blanks with line breaks...

    • Add option to ignore column order in table definition compare

      An option to ignore the order of columns between source and target table would be great. Especially since MySQL Compare can't insert new columns at the right position.

      • Great frontend for weak engine

        Your tools looks great but are completely unusable.

        Bundle:
        Is this one product or two independent? Why is it not possible to compare both schema and data? I even can't copy the database connection params from Compare to Data Compare.

        MySQL Data compare:
        It can't switch database encoding so my string data becomes '???? ???'. It generates buggy SQL when using custom comparison key. It can't pre-edit single vaues to be inserted in SQL script...

        MySQL schema Compare:
        Seems to be OK due to no nontrivial features used in my DBs (such as `national` fields). But all this software is…

        • use add [column] AFTER [col_name] syntax to avoid table rebuild

          When adding a column mid table and enforcing column order, it would be better to use the AFTER keyword to avoid a table rebuild. e.g.

          alter table test_col2 add column d int after c;

          • Generate deployment script without database names

            I want to run the deployment script to update data in several different target databases. Please add an option to generate the script without the database name.

            • MySQL automated Backup

              I would be nice, if you complete your Tools with a Backup.

              • Source Control for MySQL

                It would be great to see your Source Control for Oracle product ported to support MySQL.

                Note from Red Gate: please do comment on which source control system you use (e.g. Git/Mercurial/Subversion/TFS etc.), as well as any other critical features for you
