  1. It appears the new History feature is using Universal Time Code instead of the local time that is used everywhere else.

  2. We have pre-commit hooks enabled in SVN to make sure a reference to a Jira ticket is entered and creating a fresh DB link fails with these enabled as SSC will try to add a standard comment that does not match the required format. Every action requiring an SVN log message, should prompt for one

  3. Simply output create and alter scripts to a specified folder and its subfolders (e.g. Tables, Views, Stored Procedures, etc.). This would allow any arbitrary source control tool to be used to work with the repository.

    Obviously, the SSMS integration would not be as full-featured, and the user would be responsible for updating, adding, deleting, and committing via their tool of choice.

    I’m happy to inform you that the new 2.0 EA now supports simple folder based operation. You can even specify command line operations for each source control operation.

    Please give it a try and let us know your opinion!

    To download the new EA please visit the following link:

    https://www.surveymk.com/s/SqlSourceControl_EapSignup

    You will need to download the VSS/Vault… version.

  4. That within the SSMS the ability to generate a create database script off of the repository. I know you can do this in mgmt studio, but being able to have a full script in the repository that will build the database at that version would be sweet.

  5. I wanted to test rebuilding my DB from nothing but when I created a new DB with the same name as the old one, SQL source control showed it as already linked (odd but not a problem) but then it told me there were no changes to get and it wanted to commit a drop of everything!

    I worked around it by naming the new DB something different

    SQL Source Control v3.0.5.7 includes a mechanism to allow comparison options to be configured, including ‘Ignore Extended Properties’. To get this version, please run Check For Updates from the Help menu in SQL Source Control.

    Comparison options can now be set via a configuration file in your database repository’s Working Base folder. The following article describes how to configure this option: http://www.red-gate.com/SupportCenter/GeneralContent/knowledgebase/SQL_Source_Control/KB201202000521

    Our plan in the future is to provide an options dialog to allow users to configure the comparison options that are changed most often, but we believe this configuration file procedure should help users in the interim.

    If you’d like to see an options dialog exposing these settings in SQL Source Control, please vote on the following idea – https://redgate.uservoice.com/admin/forums/39019-sql-source-control/suggestions/2615460-add-an-options-dialog-to-allow-configuration-of-co – and let us know which options you’d like to see exposed in the dialog.

  7. After unlinking a database, I end up with an abandoned workingbase folder. Frequently unlinking/relinking (to emulate an SVN SWITCH between branches) builds up a whole bunch of sizeable folders in workingbase.

  8. When I mark an object, I get the differences at the bottom of the window. In one pane is the old and in the other the new sql code.
    I would like to mark and copy this code but the copy functionality isn't available for these two panes.

  10. Oog, each commit is like five minutes. Neither standard commits of source code (same SVN server) nor redgate SQL Compare actions (same local database server) take that long!

    We have been doing a lot of work on SQL Source Control lately. We’ve recently improved performance when you link a database, go to the commit and get latest tabs (especially subsequent visits where we can rely on data being cached), and when selecting/deselecting all on the commit and get latest tabs.

    If you are still experiencing performance problems, please make a new suggestion that is very specific to what you would like us to work on. Is it a specific step in the commit process that is taking a long time? Is it viewing history that is taking a long time?

    We’ve also started to work on this suggestion, Don’t refresh the commit/get latest automatically, https://redgate.uservoice.com/forums/39019-sql-source-control/suggestions/462220-don-t-refresh-the-commit-get-latest-automatically, which will also help with performance.


    Contact support@red-gate.com if you can share your database schema with us for performance testing purposes.

    If you are experiencing problems with server load, please see http://documentation.red-gate.com/display/SOC33/Changing+or+disabling+the+database+polling+interval

  11. I would like to see history by object. For eg, we should be able to see history for Customer table or Customer.GetOrder sp.

  12. It would make much more sense to me to be able to look at the Commit Changes tab to see what's been changed and right click on an item and choose undo if I need to revert it.

  13. It's quite common, when refactoring a set of tables to be able to migrate data from an existing structure into a new structure. This typically happens in 3 steps.

    Create the new structure.

    Migrate the data from the old structure.
    Delete the old structure.

    From what I can tell of SSC, this is not possible.

  14. Here is the scenario I going about. During iteration several developer does their check-ins and they do not create a migration script since then on Databases. But when it time to push build its a pain to go back to previous version of database and generate migration script using SQL Compare. Can't we have an option to generate a script right from SSMS by doing a diff between the two checked in revision in version control. Also another idea may be to allow create snapshot right from SSMS and developer can generate a script from that snapshot. We can have…

  15. By linking to a subfolder of an existing workspace and maintaining the copy there, it would be possible to allow an external program to handle the actual commit, and by that including the SQL changes into a bigger revision

  16. I do not want to switch to SVN or TFS. I'm already using CVS and it would be great if SQL Source Control would support CVS.

  17. I like the ability to right click on a single item and select commit to source control. However, when doing this SQL Source control calculates all of the changes in the database. Can the behavior be changed here to only show the changes for the object selected to commit?

    Thanks

    Even though we calculate all the changes, only the object you right-clicked on should be checked. (It should also be scrolled into view, if you have a long list.) Therefore, you can commit just this 1 object.

  18. It keeps saying these need to be 'commited', even though they are up to date.

    ALTER TABLE [dbo].[Cities] ADD CONSTRAINT [enforcesridgeometryCity] CHECK (([STSrid]=(0)))
    ALTER TABLE [dbo].[Cities] ADD CONSTRAINT [enforce
    sridgeometryCity] CHECK (([geom].[STSrid]=(0)))

    Table recreation code.

    CREATE TABLE [dbo].[Cities](
    [CityID] [int] IDENTITY(1,1) NOT NULL,
    [State] [char](2) NULL,
    [StateID] [int] NULL,
    [Name] [nvarchar](255) NULL,
    [LSAD] [tinyint] NULL,
    [LSADTRANS] [nvarchar](16) NULL,
    [geom] [geometry] NULL,
    CONSTRAINT [PK
    CityF2D21A9643D61337] PRIMARY KEY CLUSTERED
    (
    [CityID] ASC
    )WITH (PAD
    INDEX = OFF, STATISTICSNORECOMPUTE = OFF, IGNOREDUPKEY = OFF, ALLOWROWLOCKS = ON, ALLOWPAGE_LOCKS = ON)…

  19. When renaming (tables in this instance) the commit changes dialogue says that there are drops and creations - this will possibly confuse rollbacks etc

    Is it possible for the interface to "understand" renames?

  20. Hello,

    we use SQL Compare and Subversion. We have already checked in a SQL Compare Script Folder. It would be great if you can use that Script Folder for link a database. In the actual Version there comes the error message that a project file for SQL Source Control is missing.
