Create a Repository Workspace for a SQL-SERVER database?


Dan Roche (111) | asked Jan 23 '18, 6:47 p.m.

 In RTC, How can I create a "Repository Workspace" from an existing SQL SERVER database to start versioning its stored procedures, functions, etc?  Is it even possible?   Thanks.

Repository Workspace is a concept in RTC, or a data structure stored in the database. It has nothing to do with the vendor of the database (be it SQL Server or not).

 I guess I didn't express myself correctly.  I have a "MyBigDatabase" with lots of tables, lots of stored procedures, functions, etc.  I have a team of DBA developers that are constantly updating the stored procs and functions. I want to start having versions of the stored procs.  I wonder if RTC can read the current database objects and store them in a RTC repository...  automatically and then we can start checking-out and checking-in the stored procs (and get them sent back to the database)?  Is it something RTC can do?   Thanks!

If you are talking about native support, I believe the answer is no. If you save the stored procedures as text files, then you should be able to put these text files into RTC repository.
