  1. 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.

  2. "Take theirs" and "Keep mine" are an all or nothing option, I would like to have more control over this and be able to keep my new records but take the updated, or keep my updated records but take the new records, for example.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. Presently a standalone migration script runs before the main block. This seems odd as the point is to migrate data and for that you need schema to be in place.

    I would like to be able to add standalone migration scripts to the end of the main block.

    We ship databases with some data populated. (This is not simple static data that can be managed using linked tables). We ship for example some out the box entities such as Roles, A base User, a base Organization etc. They have circular references so to insert we have to turn off table…

  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. While comparing static data in SQL Compare, there might occur a "red herring" issue where SQL Source Control cannot see filtered table-data due to being read by a user unprivileged for Row-Level Security. Since SQL Source Control cannot see the table-data, it will then suggest to either

    a) Fetch all table-data from the linked repository (causing all kinds of PK- and other constraint issues)
    or
    b) Commit the deletion of all table-data to the linked repository

    We don't want to do either of these actions. Although bypassing Row-Level Security for an unprivileged user isn't possible, it is still possible for…

  12. I have a single schema for all customers but different reference data for different customers. It would be nice if I could manage this all within SQL Source Control. This should also be understood by SQL Compare and my continuous integration system when it comes time to deploy this to my different environments and customers' sites.

    Hi all. Thank you for your votes and feedback on this issue over the years. Here is our current guidance for this suggestion:

    Post-deployment scripts give you flexibility for static data

    With SQL Source Control, you can now use a post-deployment script to “dynamically” deploy static data based on a factor such as @@SERVERNAME or other query-able conditions.

    SQL Source Control introduced pre- and post- scripts in v6.3.

    An example post-deployment script which shows how to control deployment of static data by environment is here: https://documentation.red-gate.com/soc7/common-tasks/working-with-pre-post-deployment-scripts/static-data

    If you make heavy use of Static Data, we have stronger support for this in SQL Change Automation.

    SQL Change Automation:

    • 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
  13. Increase performance of SQL Source Control when using Static Data. Even with small amount of static data the performace of the tool is not acceptable.

  14. When adding a static table to be managed by SSC the comparison key is automatically selected. Our tables have auto generated INT ID columns as PK used in FK's. In our Static Data tables we have other columns that are unique and for them we have UK’s that we would like to use as the comparison key.

    Here is another with the same issue...
    http://www.red-gate.com/messageboard/viewtopic.php?t=16498&highlight=comparison+key

    I have not found any workaround for this yet at least.
    I believe that this would be a great improvement for SSC and would be used by many. If you agree please vote for this…

  16. 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

  17. I would like to be able to pause/start scanning a database for changes as will. It is trying to do several at the same time right now and one of them is huge which is taking longer than it should. If I could only scan the one I am working with at the moment it would save me time system resources.

  20. I would like the ability to source control a subset of a table (perhaps using a view).

    I have inherited a database where lookup data is intermixed with user defined data. We reference the lookup data in the table using a code (VARCHAR) that is unique when another field is NULL, so it is possible to ensure that records are created/updated/deleted without concern for the primary key involved.

    For more information, you can refer to this forum post:

    Hi everyone. I have merged some User Voice items on this topic of “filtered” static data, as there was significant overlap. I want to share our current guidance on handling scenarios where you need to version a subset of the columns and/or rows in the table.

    With SQL Source control, the best option at this point is to use a post-deployment script for this purpose.

    SQL Source Control introduced pre- and post- scripts in v6.3.

    A post-deployment script gives you a good amount of flexibility over exactly which rows or columns of data you want to include in your project. Example post-deployment scripts for static data are here: https://documentation.red-gate.com/soc7/common-tasks/working-with-pre-post-deployment-scripts/static-data

    If you make heavy use of Static Data, we have stronger support for this in SQL Change Automation.
