  1. Add the ability to use windows certificate store to avoid error "A certificate is required o complete client authentication"

    Bitbucket allow to use Selfsigned certificate but you need to add on the server trusted store. With the Bitbucket version 5.3.1 the Source control when push is throwing an error "failed to send request: A certificate is required o complete client authentication". and souce control doesn't have the ability to use trusted store.

    • A way to select the database from the tab itself.

      I develop and have to switch between multiple databases and the source control tab keeps following the database I am on. When I want to commit changes I have to stay put otherwise I keep losing the progress looking for changes. It would be nice to have the option of which database we are looking at from the tab itself, instead of from the SQL Management Studio one

      • require a commit message for git

        Git requires a commit message by default however SQL Source Control circumvents this setting and commits without a message. There are a few other submissions attempting to get this fixed which have been declined. Seems you are missing the point.

        In the case "Empty commit message for git is invalid" the very article you've linked points out that it takes special command line flag to commit without a message. SQL source control commits without a message and provides no mechanism to prevent this. There is no configuration for git that will do this because the default git behavior is already…

        • Selections in Commit tab remain selected in Undo Change dialog

          In the commit tab you can see the differences between source control and the database which makes it great for deciding what you want to commit or rollback. If you select items in this tab and them right click and undo changes your selections are lost and you have to re-select in the Undo Changes dialog which doesn't let you see the change.

          As a developer I want to be able to see the change that I am about to undo.

          • Remove operations prior to a CREATE statement when linking to .sqlproj files

            I'm linking to an existing database using a local folder. The database is linked in shared mode.

            The local folder was built by SSDT and contains a .sqlproj file. I'm notified of the beta functionality when linking, so I know SQL Source Control identifies the project as linking to SSDT.

            When I add a stored procedure, the resulting script starts with:
            SET QUOTED_IDENTIFIER ON
            GO
            SET ANSI_NULLS ON
            GO

            These statements don't compile in SSDT. The first statement in each script must be a create statement.

            I had removed these lines from the statement that I ran against SQL Server…

              Get rid of the option for anybody to unlock an object, but instead allow to unlock only by the person that locked the object or by a group in group role in the database where only few people have access.

              • Using Powershell to generate/checkin Migration Scripts for each changeset/commit

                We are unable to use SQL Compare to deploy Migration Scripts to all of our environments and simultaneously maintain commit level control over what does or does not get deployed to each environment for each release, especially with the high volume of changes and the number of last minute changes to release choices in the final stages of release planning. The amount of manual review of the final deployment script is unsustainable.

                Using Powershell, we would like to auto-generate Migration Scripts for each Commit/ChangeSet and Commit those Migration Scripts to TFS. This would allow us to modify the content of…

                  • 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.

                        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…

                        • 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.

                                        • BUG: Table stays marked as "changed" even after commit

                                          The source control system keeps thinking a certain table wasn't committed, and marks it up as "changed" to be committed. Here's the table:

                                          -- Columns

                                          CREATE TABLE [dbo].[EvaluacionesCiclosEducativosGruposAcademicos]
                                          (
                                          [CicloEducativoId] [int] NOT NULL,
                                          [EvaluacionId] [int] NOT NULL,
                                          [Grupo] [int] NOT NULL,
                                          [ProfesorId] [int] NOT NULL,
                                          [CursoId] [int] NOT NULL
                                          ) ON [PRIMARY]
                                          GO

                                          It doesn't seem to detect this line, and decides it has to insert it again:

                                          DISABLE TRIGGER [dbo].[tD_EvaluacionesCicloEducativosGruposAcademicos] ON [dbo].[EvaluacionesCiclosEducativosGruposAcademicos]
                                          GO

                                          At the time of this writing, it has inserted the very same section 4 times, one after the other, and wants to keep doing it.
