How can we improve SQL Source Control?

Create migration script without changes to any database objects

It would be great if you could add just a migrations script to your source control without any related change to any object in the database. This would be very use ful when tyou have tabel A with column 1 and 2 and i column 2 you want to replace all 'A' with 'a' or something.

    Anonymous shared a merged idea: Provide a way to check in a SQL Script that changes Data as an migration script without any schema or static Data changes.  ·   ·

    I am delighted to let you know that this is now released! You can now create migrations scripts even without schema changes.

    If you don’t have SQL Source Control installed, you can download it from http://www.red-gate.com/products/sql-development/sql-source-control/.

    If you already have SQL Source Control you can get the new version via Check for updates in the Help menu of SQL Source Control inside SSMS.

    You can see other Migrations examples and tutorials here: https://documentation.red-gate.com/display/SOC5/Migration+script+examples

    Thank you for sticking with us while we worked on this, and please keep the feedback coming!
