  1. Update connections to support TLS 1.1 and 1.2

    The lib's for external git connections do not use the more secure TLS connection protocols. Please update so users in security conscious environments can connect to secure servers that do not support SSLv3 and TLS v1.0

      • 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.

          • Create a command line interface for Source Control for Oracle

            It would be nice if there were a command line interface for Source Control for Oracle so that I could commit all change to a database to source control.

                  • Source control for oracle polling interval should be configurable in UI while creating project

                    Source control for oracle polling interval should be configurable in UI like minutely/hourly/daily/weekly. This will help us reduce the burden in environments like test/uat/prod, where we don't this to become a performance issue.

                    • Include support for ignoring ignored items in subversion

                      Include support for ignoring ignored items in subversion

                      This is NOT the same as filtering out objects. Once an object is in the svn:ignore it is supposed to be dead to subversion until revived.

                        • Merge grants (or similar)

                          Here is the issue we are having.

                          Two developers are working on different instances of the same database schema. If both of them add grants to the same user or role to different objects an issue arises when trying to commit to the repository.

                          The user that commits second will have a conflict.

                          If they choose the repository's grants for that user, they will lose their changes on their instance.
                          It they choose the database's grants for that user, they will overwrite the other user's changes in the repository.

                          It would be really nice to have one of these options…

                          • Allow Locking feature to work with automatic re-compiles due to PL/SQL invalidation

                            It would be awesome if the tool would let automatic re-compiles work with Locked objects when a package spec/body is invalidated by a change to another package. As it is now - and automatic re-compile (without a code change) is blocked by the REDGATE.CHECK_LOCKS database trigger.

                            Could Red Gate be changed to allow automatic re-compiles (as opposed to code change compiles)? Perhaps performing a checksum between the code and the Subversion repository could work (though this would require the database instance to communicate with the repository).

                            Thanks!

                            • Keyboard Shortcuts

                              The tool does not support keyboard shortcuts so a user must rely on slowly moving the mouse around to configure the app. An example is that to add multiple schemas, I have to click
                              Edit Project --> put my hands on the keyboard to search --> back to mouse to select Next --> Next --> Move mouse and select Edit Project... continue

                              Many developers rely on keyboard shortcuts to speed work and it is common in most UIs.

                                • UI Improvements

                                  Put a border around the application frame so it's eaier to detect on the screen with 20 other windows open...

                                  Much more importantly you need to add a way to cycle through the differences in the source control diff window by allowing to move through the changes instead of having to scroll. The blue is very hard to see in the side bar, too. Allowing simple text search wouldn't hurt either.

                                  • Performance

                                    The step where the product (Source Control for Oracle) accesses the Oracle instance to return a list of schemas is taking a long time to run, and in one of my development instances, it actually fails to finish.

                                    It seems to be running the following SQL

                                    (SELECT username, 'TRUE' as is_empty from all_users
                                    minus
                                    select owner, 'TRUE' as is_empty from all_objects)
                                    union all
                                    ( SELECT username, 'FALSE' as is_empty from all_users
                                    intersect
