  2. Currently its impossible to see User Defined Table Types at all in SQL Search. Please add this functionality. Other 'Type' objects would also be great.

    https://forum.red-gate.com/discussion/86737/can-sql-search-show-user-defined-types

    It breaks your flow when rather than using search, you have to manually navigate down the object explorer

  4. Would be good that SQL Search authenticated through Azure Active Directory - Universal with MFA.

    SQL Search version: 3.4.2.2567

  5. It would be great if you could attach to an SSAS server and search the databases (cubes) for text. I'm mainly interested in the queries used to populate the tables, but I could see it being useful to search for text anywhere in the database.

  6. If an SSIS Catalog is chosen as a database, search the SSIS packages within for the text. I'm not sure how easy it would be to show the results, but even if the results were shown in the XML file format that would be better than nothing.

  8. Include the possibility to search inside table extended properties, for example if there's a description I would like to be able to find the text inside the description

  9. I just started using SQL search and the tool is able to find words I filter by however I have scroll through lines of code in my results to see the high lighted word I specified.Can you enhance the SQL Data Search feature to return only the highlighted line of code in my SQL search versus returning the whole script.

  10. 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.

  11. 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?

  12. Do not start indexing automatically but let user to start it.
    Our two database servers contain many databases. When I switch from one to another, the index is automatically started with the database dropdown box selected all databases as default. It crashes my SSMS a few times or when it did not crash, I need to wait long time to wait it to finish the indexing.

  14. Looking up any values in any DB with the brute force approach.
    --This feature will look at every table and every column for a string, number, or datetime value, etc
    --It supports begins with, ends with, and contains for strings and returns a query of results
    --including the count of total matches on the table and the sql needed to query that result up.
    --It's also support multiple options like contains, begins with, ends with, and exact match.

    --Secondly it also supports number and date searches, xml etc.

    I have already implemented above features with a stored procedure, and hope…

  15. Give the users the ability to set default databases to search in, so that when ever the SQL Search is done, it saves them the time to select their mostly searched databases

  16. Fill searcheable servers from "Registered Servers" as well as Object Explorer and allow multiple server search simutaneously.
