FeaturesDatanamic SchemaDiff for MS SQL enables you to see what differences exist between two MS SQL Server database schemas. This is a necessary capability for effective database change management. Datanamic SchemaDiff for MS SQL generates the SQL to synchronize the database schemas.
MS SQL Server Connectivity
- Direct access to MS SQL Server databases.
- Multiple MS SQL versions supported.
MS SQL 2000, 2005, 2008 and 2012 are supported.
- Cross database versions comparison.
You can for example compare (and synchronize) a MS SQL 2005 databases and a MS SQL 2008 database.
Database Schema Comparison
- Database schema to database schema comparison.
Connect to two MS SQL Server databases and compare the objects in those databases.
- SQL script to database schema comparison.
Connect to a MS SQL Server databases and select a SQL script representing a database and compare the objects in both sources.
- Schema mapping.
Mapping schemas enables you to compare database objects that belong to the same or different schemas.
- Intelligent object mapping.
Mapping is used to connect the objects to be compared. Mapping of database objects in source and destination database is done based on names. If no object with the same name was found, intelligent routines are used to find out if an object must be mapped to an object with another name. It detects renamed database objects.
- Compare all database object types. Compare tables, procedures, indexes, views, triggers, constraints etc.
- Generate HTML reports with database differences.
- Wide array of comparison options.
You can control what is compared and what is seen as a difference. Use the comparison options such as case insensitivity, ignore constraints and 30 other options. The comparison options let you tweak the way the comparison works.
- Synchronize complete database or selected objects.
You can select the database objects you want to synchronize.
- Intelligent alter script generation.
Generated script handles object dependencies and preserves data.
- Fine-tune the synchronization process with synchronization options.
You can ignore table elements or objects descriptions for example, for synchronization.
Presentation Of Object Differences
- Visual representation of differences.
A side-by-side, colour-coded comparison overview makes it easy to pinpoint at a glance similarities and differences between two database objects.
- Summary of differences between two databases.
The summary includes objects in source but not in destination (or vice versa), identical objects and the totals of selected objects. You can easily copy the summary to the clipboard.
- Object type filtering.
Filtering the comparison results enable you to limit the display of objects to certain types of database objects (for example, show only tables and/or views).
- Status filtering.
Filter the comparison results based on the status (identical, different, etc...) of the compared object.
Database Administration Automation
- Automated object comparison and synchronization.
A command line utility is included to automate your compare and synchronize process.
Save your comparison plan to a SchemaDiff project.
