Description

Connect your databases to your source control system

SQL Source Control is an add-in for SQL Server Management Studio that links your database to your
source control system.

Because it works with tools you already use, there’s no lengthy setup, yet it gives you the ability to source
control schemas and reference data, roll back changes, and maintain the referential integrity of your
database.

And it helps you solve other database challenges, like deploying without losing data.


Key features of SQL Source Control

Source control at your fingertips inside SQL Server Management Studio

Source control at your fingertips inside SQL Server Management Studio

It’s easy to record and share your code changes, because SQL Source Control runs inside SQL Server
Management Studio.

You don’t have to stop what you’re doing or pass round handwritten change scripts.

Source control your schemas and reference data

Source control your schemas and reference data

Store and share any SQL Server object and static data. Committing and updating takes two clicks in
the Object Explorer
.

To see what’s new, you can check changes down to the individual lines of SQL, with highlighted differences.

View a full history of changes

View a full history of changes

Look through the full revision history of a database or database object.

You can see who made the changes, when they made them, and why.

SQL Source Control maintains the referential integrity of your database

Handles referential integrity for you

When you commit or update, SQL Source Control maintains the referential integrity of your
database for you.

It works out the right order for your changes and even deals with keys and constraints.

It uses the same engine as SQL Compare, the world’s most trusted tool for syncing database
changes.

Push and pull from Git remote repositories

Push and pull Git repos

Synchronize your local and remote Git repositories inside Management Studio.

Pull down changes from your remote repository, commit your changes locally, and push straight
them to your remote repository to share with the rest of your team.

Roll back and resolve conflicts from the Object Explorer

Roll back any changes you don't want

It’s simple to roll back and resolve conflicts from the Object Explorer.

This also gives you a risk-free sandbox. If you want to experiment on your database, go ahead.
You can undo any changes you don't want to keep.

Lock objects in SQL Server Management Studio

Lock objects you're working on

You can lock the object you're working on in SQL Server Management Studio with just one
click
, so your changes are safe from being overwritten.

Your team can see what's locked, as well as information on who locked it.

Work on a central database or your own local copy

Work on a central database or your own local copy

You and your team can work on a shared database or each use a local, dedicated copy.

SQL Source Control supports both models for database development.

Either way, it helps you share code, avoid conflicts, and see who’s doing what, so you can
work without treading on each other’s toes.

Exclude objects with filters

Exclude objects with filters

If you don't want to share certain objects, such as users or permissions, you can exclude them
with filters.

You can exclude objects by type, name, and owner, or specify more complex conditions.

It's simple to share only what you want with your team.
