    • Support SSMSE (SQL Server Management Studio Express)

      I can't install because I am forced to cancel the installation. It refuses to install because it says SSMS is required... while I have SSMSE installed.

        We currently support SSMS 2005,2008 , and 2008 R2 connecting to SQL Server 2005, 2008, or 2008 R2 databases. (We currently do NOT support any SSMS Express editions.)

      • Agent jobs

        Would be great if SQL Server Agent jobs could be incorporated into SVN

            Can we have a link to TortoiseSVN so we can review the repository from SSMS please?

            • Make the SVN version more prominent

              make the SVN version more prominent so (as SVN continues to evolve) I can insure consistency in SVN tools between Sql Source Control, VisualSVN, TortoiseSVN, and the Collabnet SVN Command-line client.

                  • Indication of current server / database in source control pane would be useful

                    When you select a database in the object explorer tree, then click on the link to existing repository in the red gate source control pane, the highlighted database isn't very obviously highlighted (dependin on your colour scheme) because the object explorer no longer has focus.

                    In addition, with multiple databases, it may not be obvious which server the selected database is on.

                    With the link to subversion repository dialog open, it is difficult to check which database is selected - a problem if you have to link a number of databases on a number of servers, and have lost track…

                      • Don't refresh the commit/get latest automatically

                        Having an option to calculate/determine the synchronizing between source control and local objects can be triggered with a button action rather than automatically starting this process when the source control tab is in focus.

                          Apologies for the radio silence on this, but the request as described is not currently on the roadmap. In the first instance, we are going to take another hard look at the underlying performance issues.

                          If you have challenging performance scenarios, now is a great time to bring them to us. The more scenarios we can understand and recreate, the better.

                          As a workaround for not being able to turn off auto-refresh, you can increase the polling interval (in the SQL Source Control Setup tab) and manually refresh.

                        • Cache SVN and DB Status

                          We've got around 2000 objects (tables, views, SPs, etc) and retrieving the entire list (from SVN and the DB) seems to take forever (and actually takes around 30 seconds). Too long. Cache, and refresh on demand, or prior to commit / get latest (i.e. when it matters if the objects are the latest).

                            Numerous source control products support the SCCI interface standard. We use 3 products between numerous clients. TFS, VSS, and Seapine SCM. Another possibility is PureSCM.

                            • match SMO output

                              I've written my own tool to do this --- a heavy edit of http://www.codeplex.com/scriptio actually --- and this new product differs in at least three respects: the white space (indenting tabs, blank lines), the directory structure (example: "Functions" and "Stored Procedures" should be under "Programmability"), and extra command (example: CREATE USER has CREATE LOGIN and GRANT CONNECT around it). Why not match the SMO output exactly?

                              • Work with multiple databases at a time

                                Why not offer a "SQL Source Control" entry in the right-click menu for the instance itself, so that I can look through/update/commit changes to/from several databases at once? Why do I have to specify a separate link for each database I'm interested in? Starting at the instance level would allow me to not only find *all* changes, it would also permit tracking objects within the instance but outside any database, such as "Security/Logins", "Security/Server Roles", "SQL Server Agent/Jobs", "Server Objects/Endpoints", and "Server Objects/Linked Servers".

                                • Support source control integration with SSMS Solutions/Projects

                                  We have SSMS solutions that contain only our stored procedures, functions, and views. We have these solutions in Subversion repositories and are currently using TortoiseSVN to manage changes. It would be great if this tool (or a similar one) would support Subversion integration with SSMS much like the existing support for Visual Source Safe.

                                  It could be much like VisualSVN but for Management Studio instead of Visual Studio.
