Migration Scripts not supported for Mercurial?

After demoing SQL Source Control to my development team to much hoopla, I went about testing more advanced scenarios, including when a migration script would be necessary.

Oops! "Migration scripts are not supported for your source control system" is the message I receive. This is going to complicate our deployments somewhat. Is support of Mercurial for migration scripts being considered in the very near term?


  • Yes, we're definitely considering this, especially given the strong voting on our suggestions forum:

    We hope to post an update on the status shortly.

    Out of interest, what were the 'advanced scenarios' that you were testing?

  • Sorry it's taken so long to get back on this one....a slew of other projects considerations are splitting my time way too much :)

    The advanced scenarios weren't terribly advanced, things like changing the size of a column referenced by a foreign key, or adding a "not null" property to a column, both things that would normally cause SQLCompare to drop the column (and/or FKs) and recreate them, which could result in a loss of data.
