  2. 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.

  3. I have had to exclude some objects from my SQL Source Control project and I see that it says that in the Commit tab, but they really should be highlighted with an icon in the Object Explorer.

  4. When an object is right clicked in object explorer and "commit changes to source control", the source control window should only compare the current object and any depended objects, but it should not check the entire DB which is quite time consuming.

    Looks like this was already suggested in 2010 but was closed without proper resolution

    https://redgate.uservoice.com/forums/39019-sql-source-control/suggestions/915325-commit-single-changes

    Here is another suggestion from 2010 still open, but it looks like the behavior was a bit different at the time.

  5. Using TFS where a reference to a bug or work-item is enforced as a check-in prerequisite. When typing in a comment, it's easy to forget the #A... rule. especially since TFS has a #[item number] rule without the "A". In adition it is not clear how to refer to multiple items.
    An extra field instead of "comment syntax" would make life easier.

  6. The tool assumes everything is in the default dbo schema. We have numerous schemas so its difficult to selectively check things in. Please prefix the object name with the schema

  7. We can configure SQL Source Control for setting the check box unchecked by default for dependencies popup. This should be extended one step further so we can eliminate that popup completely and reduce the number of clicks and save time.

  8. I'd suggest rebuilding Red Gate SQL Source Control into a stand-alone application (similar to SQL Compare & SQL Data Compare), instead of a plug-in to SSMS.
    My SSMS has gotten awfully slow since installing SQL Source Control, even after unchecking the Changed Object & Static Data control options, AND setting EnableObjectLocking to FALSE under the hood.

    Consider that I'm working all day in SSMS, but I only need SQL Source Control maximum once or twice a day, when committing changes to Git.

    Kind regards,
    Christof

  9. User should be able to enter comments describing change for multiple object in one submit. This will save time for the user to check-in stuff. Attaching a picture for suggested interface.

  11. Hello, I would like to suggest adding a feature to encrypt all stored procedures and functions in an SQL Database for one main purpose which is to protect the logic and code inside the database, and this is to protect the Copywrite of the developers' software. The encryption/decryption should be done using a password; as the decryption should be available for the development team only.

  12. It would be super helpful to be able to search across all connected databases for checked out objects. We have 20+ databases connected to the source control and searching through each one separately is very painful and time-consuming. Thanks!

  13. For the commit tempolate it would be nice if it loaded the the template configured for commits. See: https://git-scm.com/docs/git-commit#Documentation/git-commit.txt---templateltfilegt

    (another user asked about it here: https://forum.red-gate.com/discussion/86954/is-it-possible-to-support-git-template-feature, but it does not seem they requested it.)

  14. Issue: In most cases, committing changes from the Commit tab marks 'Action' in SVN logs as 'Replacing' than 'Modified'. This is creating a major tree conflict and related problems for us when trying to merge changes between branches.

    Suggested feature: add option in settings to change this behavior so that Source Control will always do 'Modified' for existing objects than 'Replacing'.

  15. Please add the ability to create Pull Requests directly from SQL Source Control. In our environment, we require that any push to even the develop branch from a feature or bug branch requires a pull request.

  17. I would like to see support for the git worktree feature. We often need to work on multiple branches at the same time, and this would help.

    I see someone else has also asked about this as a feature on your forums. (https://forum.red-gate.com/discussion/86826/is-it-possible-to-support-git-worktree-feature-for-sql-source-control)

  18. Hi - we use git in Azure DevOps. I have a few options for cloning,

    1. command line (which tbh i dont use much),
    2. 'git gui' - which is reliable and easy
    3. clone using visual studio from azure devops which doesnt work too much.

    it would be nice to be able to do the clone from the redgate sql source control GUI though

    ALSO

    When linking the database it would be nice to have a shortcut to

    c:\users\username\source\repos - this is where visual studio seems to default to and is a pain to browse to each time.

  19. for a number of databases we have a lot of post-deployment steps - basically to add conditional data to tables (that cant be solved by table linking) or adding SQL Jobs.
    Currently this can all be thrown in a post-deploy script, but this makes it monolithic and much harder to see changes in objects.

    SQLCMD syntax would solve this problem (:r .filename.sql), but even executing everything in the post-deploy directory in alpha order would make the post-deploy much more manageble

  20. I have found a bug that should be fixed to improve teamwork.

    These are the steps to reproduce the bug I found:

    Case 1
    1. Lock a DB object on machine A with user X
    2. Watch the DB object in machine B with user Z
    3. ☹ The locked-Icon does not apper on machine B (I have set the indicator update time to 5 seconds)

    Case 2
    1. Modify on machine A the locked DB-Object
    2. Execute the stored procedure
    3. 😊 The modified and locked icon does appear an machine B

    Case 3
    1. Modify on machine A…
