Syntax

Sync-DatabaseSchema -Source <Object> -Target <DatabaseConnection> [-FilterPath <string>] [-IgnoreStaticData] [-IgnoreAdditional] [-SQLCompareOptions <string>] [-SQLDataCompareOptions <string>] [-TransactionIsolationLevel <TransactionIsolationLevel>] [-QueryBatchTimeout <int>] [-AbortOnWarningLevel <WarningSeverity>] [-IgnoreParserErrors] [-SqlCmdVariables <hashtable>] [<CommonParameters>]

Sync-DatabaseSchema -Source <Object> -Target <DatabaseConnection> [-FilterPath <string>] [-IgnoreStaticData] [-IgnoreAdditional] [-SQLCompareOptions <string>] [-SQLDataCompareOptions <string>] [-TransactionIsolationLevel <TransactionIsolationLevel>] [-QueryBatchTimeout <int>] [-Force] [-IgnoreParserErrors] [-SqlCmdVariables <hashtable>] [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Sync-DatabaseSchema cmdlet updates a target database to match a source database schema.

The source schema can be a database connection, a build artifact, or a SQL Source Control project. The target schema must be a database connection.

Parameters

-Source <System.Object>

The source database schema used to update the target database. This can be:

- a Database Connection object created by the New-DatabaseConnection cmdlet

- a database connection string

- a path for a NuGet package or .zip file. This must contain a scripts folder located at db\state

- a Database Build Artifact object produced by the New-DatabaseBuildArtifact cmdlet

- a path for a scripts folder, created by SQL Compare or from your SQL Source Control database repository

Aliases None
Required? true
Position? named
Default Value None
Accept Pipeline Input false
Accept Wildcard Characters false

-Target <RedGate.Versioning.Automation.Compare.SchemaSources.DatabaseConnection>

The target database to be updated. This can be:

- a Database Connection object created by the New-DatabaseConnection cmdlet

- a database connection string

Aliases None
Required? true
Position? named
Default Value None
Accept Pipeline Input false
Accept Wildcard Characters false

-FilterPath <System.String>

The path to a .scpf filter file.

Use this parameter to specify a filter file to be used when performing the sync operation. This will override any Filter.scpf file in the source.

Aliases None
Required? false
Position? named
Default Value None
Accept Pipeline Input false
Accept Wildcard Characters false

-IgnoreStaticData <System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter>

When SQL Change Automation performs a sync operation and the source is a NuGet package or a SQL Source Control project, by default it will include static data flagged by SQL Source Control.

If you specify this parameter, static data will be ignored.

Aliases None
Required? false
Position? named
Default Value False
Accept Pipeline Input false
Accept Wildcard Characters false

-IgnoreAdditional <System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter>

When SQL Change Automation performs a sync operation, by default it will drop all additional objects in the target database.

If you specify this parameter, additional objects will be ignored.

Enabling this prevents new and unexpected objects in the target being dropped - note that the checks and tests applied to this database may not have taken those objects into account and may therefore not be valid.

This parameter can't be used simultaneously with filter files.

Aliases None
Required? false
Position? named
Default Value False
Accept Pipeline Input false
Accept Wildcard Characters false

-SQLCompareOptions <System.String>

Specifies the SQL Compare options to use when performing the sync operation. SQL Change Automation applies a default set of options (listed below). To include additional options, specify a comma-delimited list of the option names (eg 'IgnoreComments, ObjectExistenceChecks'). To turn off a default option, precede the option name with a minus sign (eg '-ForceColumnOrder').

This parameter will be ignored if the value specified is $null or empty.

By default, the following Compare options are used:

- ConsiderNextFilegroupInPartitionSchemes

- DecryptPost2KEncryptedObjects

- DoNotOutputCommentHeader

- ForceColumnOrder

- IgnoreCertificatesAndCryptoKeys

- IgnoreDatabaseAndServerName

- IgnoreTSQLT

- IgnoreUsersPermissionsAndRoleMemberships

- IgnoreUserProperties

- IgnoreWhiteSpace

- IgnoreWithElementOrder

- IncludeDependencies

- ThrowOnFileParseFailed

- UseCompatibilityLevel

For more information about SQL Compare options, see http://www.red-gate.com/sca/ps/help/compareoptions.

Aliases None
Required? false
Position? named
Default Value None
Accept Pipeline Input false
Accept Wildcard Characters false

-SQLDataCompareOptions <System.String>

Specifies the SQL Data Compare options to use when creating the script for validation. To include additional options, specify a comma-delimited list of the option names (eg 'DisableAndReenableDDLTriggers, CompressTemporaryFiles').

Aliases None
Required? false
Position? named
Default Value None
Accept Pipeline Input false
Accept Wildcard Characters false

-TransactionIsolationLevel <RedGate.Versioning.Automation.Shared.Domain.TransactionIsolationLevel>

Use this parameter to specify the isolation level for the transactions during the sync operation. Permitted values are: Serializable, Snapshot, RepeatableRead, ReadCommitted and ReadUncommitted. The default level is Serializable.

See http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-gb/library/ms173763.aspx for more details on transaction isolation levels.

Possible values: Serializable, Snapshot, RepeatableRead, ReadCommitted, ReadUncommitted

Aliases None
Required? false
Position? named
Default Value Serializable
Accept Pipeline Input false
Accept Wildcard Characters false

-QueryBatchTimeout <System.Int32>

The execution timeout, in seconds, for each batch of queries during the sync operation. The default value is 30 seconds. A value of zero indicates that no execution timeout will be enforced.

Aliases None
Required? false
Position? named
Default Value 0
Accept Pipeline Input false
Accept Wildcard Characters false

-AbortOnWarningLevel <RedGate.Versioning.Automation.Shared.Domain.WarningSeverity>

Use this parameter to set the minimum warning level that will cause the sync operation to abort.

Valid warning severity levels are:

- High

- Medium

- Low

- Information

- None (do not abort for any warnings)

The default setting is 'High'.

This parameter can't be used in addition to the Force parameter.

Possible values: Information, Low, Medium, High, None

Aliases None
Required? false
Position? named
Default Value High
Accept Pipeline Input false
Accept Wildcard Characters false

-Force <System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter>

Use this parameter to prevent the sync operation from aborting regardless of any warnings.

An alternative way of doing this is to set the AbortOnWarningLevel to 'None'.

This parameter can't be used in addition to the AbortOnWarningLevel parameter.

Aliases None
Required? false
Position? named
Default Value False
Accept Pipeline Input false
Accept Wildcard Characters false

-IgnoreParserErrors <System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter>

Use this parameter to force the SQL Compare engine to ignore any parser errors.

Aliases None
Required? false
Position? named
Default Value False
Accept Pipeline Input false
Accept Wildcard Characters false

-SqlCmdVariables <System.Collections.Hashtable>

Aliases None
Required? false
Position? named
Default Value None

$project = "C:\Work\scripts"
$test = New-DatabaseConnection -ServerInstance "test01\sql2014" -Database "Test" -Username "AutomationUser" -Password "P@ssw0rd"

Sync-DatabaseSchema -Source $project -Target $test -AbortOnWarningLevel Medium

This example shows how to abort the update if there are any warnings at medium level or above.

Set the -AbortOnWarningLevel parameter to 'None' or use the Force parameter if you want the cmdlet to ignore all warnings.

---------- EXAMPLE 5 ----------

$project = "C:\Work\scripts"
$test = New-DatabaseConnection -ServerInstance "test01\sql2014" -Database "Test" -Username "AutomationUser" -Password "P@ssw0rd"

$syncResult = Sync-DatabaseSchema -Source $project -Target $test
$syncResult.UpdateSql | Out-File -FilePath "C:\Export\update.sql"
