  1. When installing Source Control for Oracle, be able to set / configure where the WorkingBases and Transients folders are created.

    By default, Source Control for Oracle creates the WorkingBases and Transients (along with other associated files and folders) in the users Windows profile (C:\Users\<user name>\AppData\Local\Red Gate\Source Control for Oracle\).

    In some environments the C: drive is configured to be minimal size (just OS and some required applications).

    Being able to configure the paths where the WorkingBases and Transients (along with other associated files and folders) would to free up disk space in environments where the C:\ is configured to minimal disk space.

    • More control over file naming of source-controlled script files.

      It would be good if generating source control files where would be control how files are named.
      Data Compare does not allow joining related objects (like table with alias and indexes), so allowing to change alias name filenames and index filenames patterns would be nice (like prefix+tablename+fieldname for index)

      • Ability to change name and password for the Oracle server without having to rebuild project from scratch.

        If the user of Source Control for Oracle needs to change the security credentials to the Oracle Server, the user needs to create a new project. Please add the feature to be able to change name and password for the Oracle server without having to rebuild project from scratch.

        • Right-click on column to exclude it from comparison

          I can exclude columns in the project settings Tables & Views tab, but it would be very handy if I could right-click on a column in the detail comparison window and exclude it right there. This would save me having to go back to the project settings, waiting for the refresh, finding the table I want to modify, and deselecting the columns in the drop-down. Most of the time I start by comparing all columns and then I want to whittle it down from looking at the results in the detail window.

                • Add a documentation tool to the Oracle side of things

                  It would be great if you would produce/migrate this product(SQL DOC) over to the Oracle environment! I have used it before in the SQL Server realm, but now in a new job that is an Oracle shop... Would be nice to have this tool here as well!
                  Thanks in advance,
                  Kevin Orcutt

                  • Schema Compare Report - interactive html-report - minor bug causes images not to show in Firefox via http-server

                    When you put a and interactive-html-report and its images folder underneath htdoc of an http-server, the images fail to show in Firefox while working fine in Internet-Explorer. This can be fixed easily by changing function SetupImagesDir() :
                    instead of the currently generated backslash:
                    imagesdir = reportFileName + "_images\\";
                    use forward slash:
                    imagesdir = reportFileName + "_images\/";

                    In my tests this works in both IE and FF both via direct file and http-server.

                    • Schema Compare Report -silly to have separate images folder for each interactive html report

                      When using the interactive html report currently a new folder for each new report is generated containing the exact same images. There should just be a general images folder by all reports. Alternatively there should also be an option to use images from redgate website remotely. This would make it easier to send out differences reports as e-mail.

                      • Schema Compare Report - identical objects should be filtered too

                        When generating a schema compare report there is the option to "Also include identical objects". When you choose that you get again ALL object types of identical objects. I want to be able to include only the identical objects of the filtered object type, which is possible for differing objects via choosing "Objects selected for deploment". I think objects excluded by filter should also be excluded in the report, no matter what.

                        • Optional, exclude by default dependent (affected) objects from deploy

                          In 99% of cases i need NOT to deploy affected objects. I do small, incremental deploys.

                          So i need an option so that SOCO, at deploy, will uncheck be default the checkbox "Deploy all affected objects" and to uncheck all the items in the affacted items list.

                          There are cases when, if I forget to uncheck "Deploy all affected objects."and to uncheck "objects affected" I will put some productions down.

                          • Filter objects by user custom text filter

                            I have multiple different objects between schema and i nedd to compare only onjects (filter objects) that corespond to a more complex criteria (not just by name). I would filter for example by creation date (in a certain interval), object type, eventually the name, and other custom criteria.

                            It would be very nice that in the project properties (or near the filter by name) user could have an edit box to edit the custom criteria.

                            For example, criteria could look like:
                            (object_name like 'TR%' or object_name like '%BN') and object_type in ('VIEW', 'TABLE') and created_date>sysdate-3)

                            The list of coulumn names…

                            • Filter objects by created date

                              I have many different objects in my schemas, but i need to syncronize only objects created within last hours or day. It would be very nice to optionally filter object after a creatino date (or the objects that have creaing date).

                              I will put a new suggestion about a complete custopm filter (a string edited by user that is added to the where clause of SOCO)

                              • Source Control for Oracle should allow projects to not auto refresh.

                                For example, if I have several projects with multiple schemas in several databases, the Source Control for Oracle Tool may take several minutes to refresh the projects when the program opens. If I am only working on one database, I should be able to set the other projects to not auto refresh.

                                • Oracle-to-SQL Server migration/synchronization

                                  I have 2 current opportunities with a couple of the largest company's in the US/UK for Oracle-to-SQL Server migration for both and synchronization for 1. This is a big space to get into, but judging from experience with Red Gate in the SQL Server space, I think Red Gate can grab significant market share from the likes of GoldenGate.

                                  • I have check ignore schema in object comparison, however, Triggers still show as changed due to schema. Is this a bug or intentional?

                                    The triggers in my database show that the schema is there when looking at the create sql via sql developer.
                                    I have checked to ignore schema's in object comparison.
                                    The source control for oracle sql does not have the schema in it.
                                    Consequently the tool shows all triggers that have the schema as changes.

                                    Shouldn't these be avoided due to checking of schema in edit comparison options...?

                                      • Separate the Include Storage Option - “tablespaces and partitioning” into two options

                                        With the release of Schema Compare for Oracle V3.1.3, the one Ignore Storage Option was split into 7 separate options (plus the Include All Storage Options). One of the 7 separate options is the “tablespaces and partitioning”.

                                        Please consider splitting the option into two separate options one for "tablespaces' and the other for 'partitioning'.

                                        • Add the ability to use a simple wild character when configuring a filter in Source Control for Oracle

                                          The filtering limitation to just “contains” is really frustrating and very time consuming.

                                          · How hard can it be to use one simple wild card (“*” or “%”) to define patterns? That way I can specify a specific object name, i.e. “s” or all objects starting with, i.e. “s*”, or any object containing, i.e. “*s*”, or any object ending with, i.e. “*s”. This would add so much for so little. This seems to be an enormous oversight and by far my single biggest frustration with the tool.

                                          · Not as important but useful would be being able to have different…
