Fixes in SQL Change Automation SSMS 4.1 (available as part of Redgate SQL Toolbelt)

  • SCA-2654: You can now generate migrations with over 1000 changes and baseline from databases with more than 1000 programmable objects.
  • Fix for some circumstances where the out of process component of SQL Change Automation in SSMS could not be communicated with without running SSMS as an administrator due to permissions with certificates.
  • The out of process component of SQL Change Automation will now attempt to re-create its certificate if it could not be read.
  • Fixed a performance issue on the static data page when repeatedly opening and closing the add tables panel.
  • SCA-2656 - Apply action no longer executes baseline scripts against a populated development database.
  • SCA-2653 - The default Filter.scpf filter file now gets picked up immediately if added to the project root, if no custom filter file is specified.
  • SCA-2667 - The baseline script now includes partition schemas and functions when the SyncOptionIgnoreDataspaces is turned off.
  • SCA-2655 - The generate migrations page is now responsive when there are large amounts of changes.
  • Refresh no longer fails with an error if a baseline script is generated and then deleted - this validation will still produce an error on verify.
Column-level control of static data tracking.
