DLM Dashboard 1.4 release notes

1.4.8 - July 22nd, 2015


  • Rename schemas from the History page by clicking on the existing name.
  • It’s now clearer which changes DLM Dashboard ignores when monitoring schemas.


  • Corrected alignment on the dashboard and configuration pages.
  • Fixed an issue where some schema names sent by SQL CI weren't registered in DLM Dashboard.
    When you update to this release, DLM Dashboard will migrate existing stored schemas, which will take monitoring offline for a few minutes.
  • Schema changes that DLM Dashboard ignores in comparisons now don't appear on the review page.

1.4.7 - July 15th, 2015


  • Streamlined setup. 
    You can now add databases with one click using credentials from the connected server.

  • If you can't connect to DLM Dashboard, an offline page is displayed with troubleshooting information.
  • Better styling for the category selector.


Case sensitive databases no longer cause DLM Dashboard to freeze when checking schema.

If you had already added a case sensitive database, you'll need to remove it from DLM Dashboard and add it again for the fix to work.

This release contains more fixes to do with upgrading to 1.4.4.

    When you update to this release, DLM Dashboard will migrate existing stored schemas, which will take monitoring offline for a few minutes.


  • Removing a server containing a lot of databases no longer causes an error.

  • Setting the window for batch email notification in UserSettings.config no longer causes an error.
