Oracle tools

Welcome to the Oracle tools feature suggestion list. Find out more information about our current tools here: http://www.red-gate.com/oracle

How can we improve our Oracle 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 support and comment on it.

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

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

  1. Modify Oracle Data Compare to display table name when /verbose option is used on the command line

    The current command line option runs but produces no output until the entire compare is completed, the GUI tells you what table it is on and the % complete. The batch process should be able to do the same.

    • Extend SQL parser to read scripts generated by other tools

      If the SQL parser could read DDL generated by other tools (e.g. data modeling tools), then the schema comparison could find differences between the schema as defined by those tools versus a database.

      • Exclude system-generated interval partitions from comparison and DDL

        For background on Oracle's interval partitioning feature, see chapter 4 of Oracle Database Concept for release 12.2.

        Our practice is to create interval-partitioned tables with the minimum number of partitions necessary to create the table (usually just one partition), and let Oracle create all others as data arrives requiring them. Between test, QA, and production databases, data arrives at different times, giving rise to automatic creation of different partitions. But because these differences are only a side-effect of different contents, they are not relevant, in the same way that differences in system-generated constraint names are not relevant. Changing the partition…

          • Pre-script introduction in the scheme compare deployment script.

            Hi , I am trying to understand how to introduce a pre-script ALTER SESSION SET CURRENT_SCHEMA = <> SQL statement in the top of the deployment script which is generated during the schema compare either between source DB vs target DB or TFS vs Target DB.

            • DB or Version Control URL update functionality

              There is no functionality to update an existing project GIT repository or DB URL.

              I have to update it under :

              • Automap Source Control schemas with existing SchemaInformation.xml files

                If the schema has already been extracted by Schema Compare for Oracle, Source Control should use the existing SchemaInformation.xml files to auto-map folders to schemas.

                • scripts break out

                  The scripts can become quite large when comparing tables. Need a way to make the scrips smaller - multiple outputs for same table - in order to have a script that is runnable in sql. For example - when comparing a table that generates 50K records the output script is not editable by most editors - need to break it out in multiple files.

                  • Your Oracle connection via Wallet authentication doesn't appear to work properly.

                    It's less an idea than a complaint. I'm a seasoned DBA working with a large number of developers. Developers do not have elevated privilege access to our QA or production environments. I'm wanting to set up a wallet so this tool can access those environments without requiring login/password information. I've setup sqlnet.ora and ldap.ora (we don't use tnsnames.ora) and can connect via the wallet entry using SQL*Plus on my local machine without issue. However, your product (Schema Compare) fires off an ORA-01017 (invalid login/password). Yet when I use normal credentialed login procedures via Schema Compare, the test works just fine.…

                    • separate type spec and type body

                      Please separate type specifications and type bodies. (e.g. "CREATE TYPE FOO AS OBJECT" and "CREATE OR REPLACE TYPE BODY FOO"). Most of the time our changes are only to the body but Schema Compare will try to recreate the spec on deployment even if the spec has not changed.

                      This will fail if it has dependencies and make automated builds fail when using the Deployment Suite for Oracle with a build system.

                      • Sorting Database Objects in Sync script

                        When we create a syncronization script we have diffrent order of objects from time to time. It is not very good for us, because it is hard to find out changes.
                        Could you please make that the order does not change (for example in alphabetical order).

                        • BUG!!!!

                          This has been an issue with Oracle tools for some time.

                          A table with a Generated column has a bug which inserts an extra right parentheses in its definition. Can be seen in Source Control as well as Schema Compare.

                          ColumnName NUMBER(1) GENERATED ALWAYS AS (NVL2("ForeignKey",0,1)) NOT NULL,

                          tool generates:

                          ColumnName NUMBER(1) GENERATED ALWAYS AS (NVL2("ForeignKey",0,1))) NOT NULL,

                            • Repository Change History is not Respected

                              On git when new Features are merged into Develop Branch , Source Control take Database Schema as Good and not the new changes on Develop. If like don't considerate last DDL TIme of an object to diff between new and old.

                              One example are Hot Fix merged on Develop branch, when a horfix was resolved and you are going to integrate changes in Develop Database, Source Control consider Develop Database as Good schema and not the new Hot Fix Change merged into Develop Branch. Generating Check In changes and not Get In Updates.

                                      • Oracle Locking (associated objects configurable)

                                        Do you think it might be possible to add a feature request to Oracle source control to make the locking script configurable so it’s created dynamically from the product based on these configurations (i.e. schema name, user name, role name, etc.)? Right now it’s hard coded and making it configurable might make the feature more palatable for companies that have naming conventions and restrictions (schema, users, roles, stored procedure naming, etc.).

                                        • Event Viewer

                                          Event Viewer / Saved Logs / Red Gate Software. The file contains a large number of errors and warnings that are often repeated. From 06/13/2017 to 06/23/2017 contains 3750 events. I miss the ability to send files for analysis directly from the app.
