Drift Handling in ReadyRoll

We are using ready roll, configured auto deploy in all the environments. In the sqlserver development environment we added a new user and that user is not in my local databases. When we deploy a drift is detected for the new user is available in the development server.

In our environments we will have different user roles for each environments like app_user_dev, app_user_test, app_user_uat. So we like to avoid the drift detection for the user and roles .

I tried <ExcludeObjectsFromImport> in the sqlproject. No luck !

How to exclude users and roles from drift detection ?

Any help will be appreciated.

    Apologies for the delay in replying. I've done a bit of investigation and found that the following project-level property might be what you're after: SyncOptionIgnoreUsersPermissionsAndRoleMemberships (set to True)

    In order to implement this, you can either add it as a property to your sqlproj file, which will prevent the role memberships being scripted both at development time (i.e. when using the ReadyRoll tool-window to generate scripts) and also during drift detection:

    If you would like the role memberships to be excluded from drift detection only, you can specify the property on the command line, e.g.:
    MSBuild MyProject.sqlproj

    I hope this helps. Any questions or issues please let me know
