Data Compare

In dbForge Data Compare for Oracle, the Data Comparison Report has been drastically improved displaying actual differences in reports, such as what was added, removed, or modified.


For better performance, Documenter now supports a full-text search index for JSON data. You can generate a DDL script with a JSON search index using the CREATE SEARCH INDEX statement or the Generate Script As Create functionality.

You can specify a cluster model in the CREATE TABLE statement by adding a CLUSTERING attribute that filters values by linear order.

Schema Compare

In dbForge Schema Compare for Oracle, we improved the behavior of the Ignore START WITH schema comparison option. In addition to sequences, it will also be ignored in identity columns during comparison and synchronization.

Also, the tool now provides new ignore comparison options. When enabled, they will be ignored in sequences and identity columns during comparison and synchronization. The options include:

  • Ignore MAXVALUE
  • Ignore CACHE
  • Ignore CYCLE
Schema Compare provides new ignore comparison options

The Schema Comparison Report has been dramatically improved. Now, it displays added, removed, or modified differences between objects as removed-added lines or crossed out words in a Schema Comparison report.

The HTML report can include filtered objects or objects selected for synchronization or only objects with differences, as well as display the synchronization script, warnings, comparison and synchronization options.

Improved the Schema Comparison Wizard

In dbForge Schema Compare for SQL Server, we have improved integration with version control systems. Now you can link to Azure DevOps Server (previously known as Team Foundation Server a.k.a. TFS), Git, Perforce, and SourceGear Vault version control systems.
