Extended property to ignore an object

Hi,

For some of our objects, they are automatically scripted in and kept up-to-date from another system, whereas the remainder of the objects are source-controlled manually via SSC.

The objects that are controlled by the non-SSC can have any schema/object name etc, however they all have a particular extended property set on them (and we have control to add more etc.).

At the moment I need to manually edit the SSC filters and filter out any of these objects based on their schema/name as new one come into the database.

Would be way easier if I could just filter out objects that have an extended property set against them.

Is there any out-of-the-box or workaround to achieve that in SSC?

Thanks
Peter

    Ok cool, that was at the back of my mind as well and is likely the way we'll go but it was worthwhile checking I wasn't overlooking something more obvious or easier. Thanks. 
  • Normally we'd encourage grouping objects using schemas or via a naming convention that a single filter rule would capture. If you come up with a solution using extended properties, this might be something worth sharing with other users who have the same issue!
