  1. Do not use transactions but use bulk insert in order to reduce the get latest time. A 'flush and refill' approach using bulk insert should be faster in hours with 10K plus records.

    A two processor, dual core computer with 8GB of RAM and a Windows experience index of 6.5 takes over 8 hours to get lates on 50K records.

    Thanks for this feedback and for the votes for this suggestion.

    For users who need to manage larger volumes of static data, we currently recommend versioning the database with SQL Change Automation. SQL Change Automation has stronger support for static data:

    • Supports column filtered static data tables in the SCA plugin in SSMS
    • Supports multiple post-deployment scripts, in case there is a preference to manage static data tables in dedicated post-deployment scripts
    • Allows approaches like bulk loading larger static data tables by supporting SQLCMD variables in migration and post-deployment scripts

    I do understand that you are looking for this feature in SQL Source Control, but wanted to surface this option for other readers who may be interested in either tool.

  2. One of the things that we have in all of tables is a "DateCreated" and "ModifiedBy". DateCreated is supposed to be the UTC time of the creation of the record. For Metadata supported by SQL Source Compare -- this is becoming the date the script was written, rather than the date the production goes live. We would like to state that the actual column should be replaced by GETDateUTC(), rather than the time the record was first created in development, and then we want to tell SQL Source Control to ignore the underlying column for comparison.

    We want to be…

  3. 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".

  4. With 100s or 1000s of tables it becomes quite tricky to find objects in the static data link / unlink UI. Therefore, I suggest adding a search textbox there as well as making the UI columns (name, key, schema) sortable.

  5. We use Linked-Servers to connect to Oracle databases. These objects can be added by a developer and then need to be versioned like any other SQL object.

  6. Whe you have a multi branched dababase environment could be helpful to export from the main database the list of tables linked (in xml ie, or json, as you wish), in order to reload it on the branch database. Obviously only for the objects that exist. An alternative could be to save to "other similar database" too..

  7. The deprecated RAISERROR, and newer THROW T-SQL instructions can use custom (user-defined) messages written into the sys.messages table using sp_addmessage.
    Since these are part of the "source" of a database in SQL Server, and should be syncronised across developers and implemented in production, it would be nice if the custom messages saved in this table can also be added to the static data in a repository.

  8. It would be great if we could integrate SQL Source Control with our build scripts. For example a simple command line command to get the latest changes and apply (or script) them to our staging environment would be great. Or a command to commit all changes to source control.

  10. We have a rather large schema with numerous static data linked...
    When I turn off the automatic check of static data, the Get Latest and commit refresh operations take only seconds!! (Awesome!)
    When i turn ON auto check of static data, it takes almost a minute (yawn!).

    It would be really great if I could have the best of both worlds... Do not automatically check static data, but manually check it as I see fit with a separate button on the GetLatest tab that says "check static data now" or something.

  11. After we have run a restore database command, the source control do not notice, that some, earlier loaded stored procedures from lastest version are after that newly out of date.
    Source countrol should recognize a restore and scan completely new for the latest changes.

  12. When displaying the Static Data differences in SQL Source Control it would be very useful to show the number of records that are Different/Identical/In Database Only/In Source Control Only.

    When tables have thousands of records it can be difficult to know the scale of what you’re about to check in or get by just scrolling down a long list. A tab displaying the records for each distinct group would be even better.

  13. When adding a static data table to source control, there should be a warning if that table has a foreign key constraint on another table and give the option to include that table as static data also. As it is the error you get in SQLCI is quite hard to decipher when SQL Source Control is used in conjuction with SQLCI.

  16. When we hop back in our source control repository to an older release and "update" our database, occasionally there is new static data that is referenced by non-static entries in the database. We do not have cascading deletes enabled for various reasons outside of the developers control, but in this particular instance it causes errors when static data is removed from the database to revert to an older version. Would it be possible to have redgate check incoming foreign keys and generate all the necessary deletes to allow static data removal?

  18. A tabular visualization with the differentiation between "added" (only in database), "changed" (on both sides existing but with different data) and "removed" (only in repository) would help to check the differences and with a possibility to select certain differences which should be committed, it would also be more efficient that different developers can commit only their own changes on a table, which is linked regarding static data.
    In addition a possibility to hide the unchanged columns in the tabular visualization would also be really good.

  19. We are using System Versioned Tables, and on these tables SQL server adds 2 new columns SysStartTime and SysEndTime. These columns are typically marked as hidden and we need a way to ignore comparison for these. Either by a column level filter, or an option to ignore system versioning columns
