  1. 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.

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

  3. If I attempt to commit something (in this case it was an object with a dependency I didn't include in the list of objects to commit) and that commit fails, you not only refresh the list view again (I can live with that) but you clear the comments. Given the already dismally small field (way too small given how many objects I might be checking in), I have to edit these in a text editor first (you don't support tabs either in there) and paste it in...well, if I don't realize there's going to be a failure (happens often enough),…

  5. When I installed Toolbelt I has SQL 2014 now I have added SSMS2016 and its only Prompt and SQL Test that is visible. I have tried running a reinstall but it tells me that the products are already installed - what's going on!

    The latest version of SQL Source Control (5.7 / 5.8) in the Toolbelt should support both SSMS 2016 and SSMS 17. If you have problems, please don’t hesitate to contact support directly.

  6. In order to access some options, such as enabling SQL Source Control in multiple instances of SSMS, you have to access a section of the setup tab that you can only get to after you have a database linked to a version control. This kind of thing should be available without having to go through all of that.

    As an example of where this comes into play, I open a local DB that I have no intention of attaching to SC and do some work. I then open another DB in another SSMS instance that I do want to deal…

    The latest frequent update release of SQL Source Control (5.8.0) implements the Global Options as a dialog. You can access it by clicking “Options” in the top right corner. Thanks for your feedback.

  7. When I try to open up an analysis services database (to view), SQL Source Control crashes.

  9. I recentrly had a brief email exchange with Stephanie from Red Gate, where I explained that we use a centralized Development database, instead of every developer having a dedicated local version of the DB against which they develop. I believe that the Centralized Dev DB model is the model used most in the field, mainly for two reasons. 1) Most companies don't want their developers to have local copies of the database for security reasons, and 2) Development DBs often hold a lot of test data which would not be practical for all of the developers to have locally.

    SQL Source Control supports either model, http://www.red-gate.com/MessageBoard/viewtopic.php?t=12947.

    v2.0 has the following enhancements for the shared model:
    If you setup your database as shared, then you will see who last updated each object on the Commit tab and Undo dialog. Only objects that you last updated will be checked by default. This will prevent you from accidentally committing/undoing others changes that work on the same db.

    We are also addressing the problem so that you will no longer see invalid conflicts on the Commit tab.

  10. We evaluate SQL Source Control in an internal project and it already saves us a lot of time in our daily development work.

    On top of our subversion we use a Continuous Intregration Server so it would be great if we could trigger SQL Source Control by that Server. A simple command line tool with some parameters would be sufficient to automatically sync a test database with the subversion so that afterwards a couple of SQL test scripts could be executed.

  11. The overlay icons disappeared when I connected to a SQL Server 2005 database using SSMS 2008. This is the first time I've noticed this behavior.

    Hi. We think that this is fixed. Please let us know if you’re still experiencing issues with the icons.

  12. I'm looking forward to source control of data. It's very low impact, which are the only kinds of tools that get used when schedules get off track, which is to say, week three of any project.

  14. If i make a table column which was nullable initially to a non-nullable; and then commit this change to svn. On the other computer, when i update from svn, what happens to the data? as the records in this table may have the null values in the column i just changed.

  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. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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

    There was a bug in the first EA, which caused problems when trying to do the initial commit for large number of objects. It’s now fixed, please get the latest version.

  20. When we look at the RedGateDatabaseInfo.xml file, it appears as one long line of text. Merging this is nigh on impossible because the one line conflicts. It would be nice if it was written in a pretty xml format to help with merging
