    Anonymous shared a merged idea: Migration Scripts For Peforce (Come on !) :)  ·   · 
    started  ·  Jonathan HickfordAdminJonathan Hickford (Product Manager, Red Gate) responded  · 

    Migrations for Perforce (migrations v2) can now be used throughout the delivery lifecycle with the latest versions of the Red Gate SQL tools. SQL Source Control, SQL Compare, SQL CI and Deployment Manager all use migrations v2 scripts if configured to do so.

    NB. We’re still calling the migrations feature a beta feature within the products. This is because we are continuing to release user interface improvements and improve stability, and we do not yet consider the feature complete. However the core products have been through their full testing and release processes and are stable.

    A frequent releases channel for SQL Source Control is now available, and it is this channel that contains the migrations v2 feature. This means you can evaluate the new migrations functionality without having to install a beta version of SQL Source Control, and you will benefit from the regular updates being made to SQL Source Control.

    SQL Compare 10.6 (currently in beta) supports migrations v2 scripts. The migrations v2 feature must be enabled on the options tab. Migrations v2 are enabled by default in SQL CI (part of the SQL Automation Pack) and in Deployment Manager.

    We’d really like to hear about your experiences so we can fix issues and try to make any updates you need before the final release.

    Download links for SQL Source Control and SQL Compare with migrations v2 and, along with instructions on how to enable migrations v2 are on http://www.red-gate.com/migrations

    Please note that if you have previously installed the standalone migrations v2 beta versions of SQL Source Control (version 3.9.x) or SQL Compare (10.9.x) you will need to uninstall these in order to install versions 3.6.×. and 10.6.×.

        My idea should read Add Perforce Migration Script Support to SQL Source Control.

        I had a copy paste boo boo, sorry.

        "Perforce is a cross platform tool making the Perforce environment favorable to programmers spanning multiple environment and platforms in their daily operation.
        The cross platform solution relies on low-level frameworks for communication allowing it to work on every computer that implements TCP/IP for communication and popular platforms like Unix, Linux, Mac OS X and Windows are supported. Furthermore Perforce have dierent choices for developers that interface with perforce because there are command line clients available for scripting and advanced usage.
        There is also a GUI application that visually browses the source code repository and allows for actions and commands in the repository to be manageable by GUI benets such as drag and drop actions."

        So, please can we have migrations functionality for Perforce SCM?
