A SQL Server Management Studio add-in to source control your database in Subversion or Team Foundation Server.

setting up full-text index

Postby merk » Tue Jan 15, 2013 8:48 pm

It would be really cool if source control could handle setting up the indexing on any tables that have full text index set up. It makes a task that would otherwise be very quick an easy somewhat tedious, since I have to try to commit changes, wait for it to give me an error telling me what table needs an index and then go through the motions of setting all that up.

Any chance this is something that will become automated in the 'get' process?

Unfortunately SQL Source Control behaves in this manner because full text indexes can't be updated transactionally, so we do them all at the end of the script, after the transaction. Unfortunately that means that if you have something which relies on them in the middle of the script, then it will fail.

The workaround is to synchronize the fulltext catalogs / tables with fulltext indexes first, and then synchronize the rest of the database.

I guess this isn't a very high priority request considering that feature request is from may of 2011 ;)p I voted for it anyhow though.
