    It would be great if you could let us know more about how you’d use a Prompt API / command line version of Prompt.

    What problems are you having without it?
    How are you getting around those?
    How would this make your work better?

    Martin, I have actually suggested this same functionality in another suggestion if you wanted to put your votes on my post instead it might get more attention...just a suggestion. :)

    Here's the link...

    Thank you everyone for the suggestions and votes for this over the years.

    I’d like to surface up a workaround for the “linking” problem which is mentioned in the comments. For the use case of easing pains around environment setup with a large number of databases, we have had customers find success using code based off Alessandro Alpi’s blog post: https://alessandroalpi.blog/2016/06/28/automatically-link-databases-to-red-gate-sql-source-control/

    I do understand that this is a broader issue and hear that many of you also want command line or API support for the product in general.

    If there are specific scenarios or workflows that would be useful to automate for you, this feedback is also very useful, and if you have details on the type of VCS you use and the workflow (such as a branching model) that it would fit in to, that would be very helpful for us to hear as well.

    I read the suggestion about SSMSBoost, but it would be nicer to have this functionality in one tool rather than having to install a completely different tool for one piece of functionality. Also, I do not see the correlation between this request and the request for "Recommended Table Structure" suggestion.

    I would also add the following recommendation for this enhancement to include the ability to assign shortcut keys to switch the connection context of an SSMS tab. That way you could reduce the clicking even more.

    Thank you everyone for your comments and votes on this over the years. While I don’t have a 100% full resolution for this suggestion, I can sum up our current recommendations here. Continued feedback is very welcome.

    Our current recommendation is to use the post-deployment script feature of SQL Source Control (released in V6.3) to manage SQL Server Agent jobs.

    An example script for this is here: https://documentation.red-gate.com/soc/common-tasks/working-with-pre-post-deployment-scripts/create-sql-server-agent-job

    As some commenters in this thread have alluded to, it is possible (and sometimes very common) for SQL Agent jobs to have steps that touch multiple databases on a single SQL Server Instance. For this reason, some customers prefer to create a separate database for instance-level management and objects (sometimes named DBA or similar) and choose to manage things like linked servers and SQL Agent jobs with the post-script associated with that database.

    This separate-database architecture also makes sense if the jobs…
