130 results found

  1. We have over 200 tables and over 1000 stored procedures. I often need to search on two words. The current "Match whole words only" literally searches for "this word", but I often need it to search for all objects that have exactly "this" and "word". When I search try without the "Match whole words only", I end up with a LOT of results that have words that are similar to "this" and "word", but aren't an exact match.
    I've also tinkered with the wildcards, but that only seems to apply to on character at a time. Maybe I'm doing something…

  4. Having the search start automatically with all database is frustrating when you have hundreds of databases on an instance.
    You should be able to initiate the search when you're ready, or stop the one that is currently running.

  6. I love the colored tabs but to better know which server/database I'm working with I'd like to see the server and its children in the Object Explorer with the same colored background to match it's tabs. This would help to visually to associate what server I'm working with when I have a lot of servers and databases open.

  8. On my server there are dozens of databases, each project encompasses several at a time. It would be nice to save groupings of databases so that I can select multiple databases that are relevant for a particular project without sifting through a long checklist picking specific databases.

  9. Please build an unified Update Manager to manage all your product updates in accordance with the client license.
    It's a very time consuming and laboring task to enter each and every program or tool and do an individual update for each one.

  11. Currently, SQL Search does not show precision and scale for numeric/decimal data types. I erroneously thought a column was defined without those specified when I say the SQL Search results for a table I was looking at.

    Please add precision and scale for decimal/numeric columns to the create table display

  12. Would be good that SQL Search authenticated through Azure Active Directory, so I could release this tool to many users on my Azure SQL Databases.
    If not possible, would be nice to choose which SQL account to authenticate instead of my current account.

  16. Sometimes when server is changed it automatically starts Reindex for all databases. Even if one database was selected later, it continue re-indexing and it could be very long. Is it possible to add Stop Reindex button to stop the process?

  18. It would be very beneficial if I could search for objects with a certain schema across the databases I choose. I.e. SQL Search trigger on letter-sequences in schema names, just as in table or column names.

    As it is, I can only find those objects if they are referenced elsewhere with their schema given (e.g. a stored procedure or a view will give me a hint that a schema exists in a database in a galaxy, far, far away).

  19. Allow multiple searches in many search tabs.
    I want to search two different things and have the search results side-by-side.
