This add-in allows you to link your SQL Server database to the source control repository, which can be a local folder or any of the popular source control systems, like Subversion (SVN) or SourceGear Vault, amongst others.
If you choose a local database folder for a repository, this folder can be also source controlled with version control system. This can be done in the same way you version control other files.
When you have successfully linked desired database with source control, you can start with committing your database to the source control repository.
By using a source control manager, you can view any changes made to the database. You can then choose to commit this changes to source control repository, or you can also undo local database changes from the repository. With this process, objects in database or repository can be either added, dropped or modified.
dbForge Source Control for SQL Server is mainly targeted towards database administrators and other experienced database users, and is all in all, a practical add-in for database development and to keep track of any changes being made to the database.
