  3. When I compare databases running on the same machine but on different ports, I cannot distinguish between the left and right dabase in the result view. Better to add the port behind the hostname

  4. Once a comparison is done, allow the result to be exported or at least copyable so it can be saved for reference.

  5. MySQL Compare Tools' deploy scripts don't have expression/formula of generated columns. Please add that feature

  6. Having foreign key constrains renamed things like 'ibfk_3' causes maintenance problems. When generating an update script, the tool should retain the name of the foreign key by using the CONSTRAINT name_of_constraint syntax before the FOREIGN KEY keywords.

  7. Maybe some tool that can show problems in database design like almost redundant object names or cols of a table or/and too many cols on tables are good samples.

  8. Both tools should be combined into a single user interface. Easy for users to switch data structure comparison or contrast. And, we should support projects run multiple comparison at same time.This will improve efficiency.

  9. Would really love this tool to be able to compare a scripts folder to a database like SQL Compare is able to do.

  10. Sql Search for Microsoft Sql Server is realized as plugin but for MySql it can be standalone application or plugin for MySql Workbench.

  11. Can you please generate help documentation for the MySQL Tools similar to what is available for SQL Compare and Schema Compare for Oracle.

  13. I know the MySQL bundles does not have the source control - and there is already an idea asking for it, but if the MySQL compare can generate and work with script folder like the oracle one does, we can check in the folder manually and make the tool as robust as oracle bundles

  14. Now, the whole view definition is on a single line and the compare display is worthless. Please add line breaks in the definition statement (just for display) so the statement can be inspected. Maybe just replace blanks with line breaks...

  15. An option to ignore the order of columns between source and target table would be great. Especially since MySQL Compare can't insert new columns at the right position.

  16. Your tools looks great but are completely unusable.

    Bundle:
    Is this one product or two independent? Why is it not possible to compare both schema and data? I even can't copy the database connection params from Compare to Data Compare.

    MySQL Data compare:
    It can't switch database encoding so my string data becomes '???? ???'. It generates buggy SQL when using custom comparison key. It can't pre-edit single vaues to be inserted in SQL script...

    MySQL schema Compare:
    Seems to be OK due to no nontrivial features used in my DBs (such as national fields). But all this software is…

  17. When adding a column mid table and enforcing column order, it would be better to use the AFTER keyword to avoid a table rebuild. e.g.

    alter table test_col2 add column d int after c;

  18. I want to run the deployment script to update data in several different target databases. Please add an option to generate the script without the database name.

  20. It would be great to see your Source Control for Oracle product ported to support MySQL.

    Note from Red Gate: please do comment on which source control system you use (e.g. Git/Mercurial/Subversion/TFS etc.), as well as any other critical features for you
