  1. Support for SCCI standard

    Numerous source control products support the SCCI interface standard. We use 3 products between numerous clients. TFS, VSS, and Seapine SCM. Another possibility is PureSCM.

    • With Many databases source controlled. It would be great if there was a function to view changes and updates across all databases

      With Many databases source controlled. It would be great if there was a function to view changes and updates across all databases. At the moment databases have to be updated one by one. very time consuming

        • Option to disable the SQL sp_refreshview command in the update script.

          An option that prevents the addition of the EXEC sp_refreshview in the update script.

          When updating queries that rely on linked servers and the linked server doesn't support distributed transactions the update fails and is rolled back.

          Now we constantly have to manually alter the script by manually removing the EXEC sp_refreshview commands. This our server admins will not enable the DTC coordinator on the SQL servers

          • Link databses using solution or project file

            We have a lot of databases. It's very time consuming to link all databases one at a time for every developer. It should be possible to make use of a solution file to link a solution with all the databases, rather then mapping one by one.

                  Need to deploy from Git Source Control Repository to Target Databases

                  I use a shared Dev database and I work on multiple issues and versions of our software at the same time and am using Git to keep track of all the changes that go with each issue I'm working on. However, when QA asks me to deploy the changes relating to one specific issue to their QA environments, I have to manually go through all the changes in our shared database and determine which of the changes I made relate to that issue. In Git, I create a branch…

                    Would be nice if SQL Source Control supported clearcase, or if an example of the config file usage were created.

                            We're using Dynamsoft SCM for source control. Currently, we're using sql prompt/sql changeset to script to a folder and then push that into SCM. It supports the SCC interface, but since you guys said that was too unreliable to use we're pretty much stuck.

                                  • 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.

                                      • On closing, ask to Commit changes

                                        Working in a Team development, I do not want changes not to be commited to TFS. If I forget on closing, then a pop up window should ask you if you want to commit your changes.

                                        • I would like to see a command line interface added to the SQL Source Control. Having this to be able to automate saving change into TFS

                                          Have asked for this from support several years ago when the Source Control first was offered. Surprised still no command line interface. The ability to automate saving db changes automatically into TFS or GIT would be widely accepted by the DBA community. I would purchase it tomorrow if was made available.
