  1. Amending last commit

    We use SQL source control linked to Gerrit. It would be really useful to be able to 'Amend last Commit' inside the GUI.

      • Add 'git push' and other DVCS equivalents

        In the SQL Source Control GUI add a button or checkbox to allow pushing changes to the remote repository. This saves having to go to the command-line or another GUI to push our changes up to the remote repository.

            When you hit get latest and your stored procedure contains an error, it fails to get the latest. It doesn't give a clue in which piece of code the error is located

            • Allow ability to ignore specified object(s) by database

              Most objects are shared among our several databases, while some only apply to some (or only one) of our databases. Add the ability to ignore objects by database by right-clicking the database object and clicking a menu item like "Ignore this object in this database" and/or "Ignore this object in all databases except this database". So then we don't need to have an object in one/many of of our databases that is not used in that database(s), source control would not show the need to be updated or added because it is on the ignore list for that database.

                • Add the "solution" concept for multiple projects

                  It would be nice to allow comparison "solutions" where you could have multiple projects bundled together. The solution comparison could be run in a single step, and all projects would be run with results in separate tabbed windows. For example, on a weekly basis I need to compare DEV and LIVE schemas for nine databases. I have nine separate projects that I need to open and run. If I could bundle these into a solution, run the solution and have all nine projects run and get their results displayed in tabs, that would save a ton of time.

                    • Check and Commit Changes over all Databases

                      Checking for Changes should be possible over multiple Databases on a Server. All Changes on a Databaseserver should be allowed to commit at once.

                      • Add Filter for Static Data Selection

                        Add a filter for static data, similar to the feature available in SQL Data Compare. This will facilitate source controlling data for tables that contain a mix of static system data and user content.

                        • Removing column does not generate update in static data

                          If a table is setup for static data, and you remove one or more columns from that table, the static data is not updated in the working directory when "Saving changes".

                          • Deploy to database without preserving data

                            am trying to deploy changes to tables from one database to another as part of development. SQL Compare insists on creating temporary tables in the target database, putting the data in them, and then trying to insert the data back into the new tables (which now have different types/names for columns).

                            I cannot find an option to turn off the preservation of existing data.
                            I want to deploy my schema changes while discarding any existing data if present. (It is called SCHEMA compare after all)

                            I don't understand why there isn't an option to ignore data currently in target tables…

                            • It would be great to see the changes before they are commited to the source control

                              This would be a comparision between the local version of the files (e.g. loaded from the database) with the latest release on the version control system.

                              • Indexed view definitions don't compare with latest version properly

                                When comparing view definitions from local objects to latest source control version (perforce in our case), SQL Source control doesn't properly read the data compression options from the source control version. So we'll get a difference, showing "WITH (DATA_COMPRESSION = PAGE)" highlighted orange on the left....however the source control file also has this clause, it's just not being read properly. If I check in the file, it will refresh and the same object will still show a difference with source control, even though it's not.

                                • Filter and Comparison Options should *always* show on top if not in sync.

                                  It's far too difficult to find the Filter and Comparison Options items if there are lots of things that might be filtered out or excluded via options. These items should always show on top regardless of the UI sort order because they are so important to synchronize first.

                                    • Would love to see a feature that ignores any local changes and allows you to simply bring the local database up to the latest version

                                      We often restore databases into our working folder and would love an option to simply bring that database up to the latest source controlled version. Right now when we restore a database Source Control thinks we made a bunch of changes so we end up having to "undo" those changes.

                                      • SQL errors when constructing temporary database should show failing script

                                        On creating a new migration script (Migrations V2) and switching to the "Commit changes" tab, an error in an unrelated object (e.g. stored procedure referring to a non-existent column) causes SQL Source Control to fail with "An error occurred while creating a temporary database". The complete error message shows a stack dump, originating with the error in the script which has been run to create objects in the temporary database.

                                        It would be much more helpful if SQL Source Control recognised that an error has occurred in the script and make the script available for viewing, similar to the way…
