We have several tables that contain LOB columns and thus also a generated rowid column. If an extra column is added, it will be placed at the end. If we now generate DDL for a table with a LOB column via ADB2GEN, then the generated rowid column is...
Generic Ignore for New v12 Columns on SYSTABLESPACE and SYSINDEX
v12 introduced additional columns on SYSTABLESPACE and SYSINDEX which match attributes that were previously present on SYSTABLEPART and SYSINDEXPART, respectively. When a source object has been created in v12 is compared to a target object which w...
Allow Exclude criteria to be directly specified in ADB2GEN
We are driving automation by dynamically building a list of objects to 'GEN' the DDL for. However we also need to dynamically build a list of objects to exclude. Currently ADB2GEN only allows reference to a pre existing exclude which has to be cre...
Require Change to Primary Index When Primary Constraint is Changed in Alter Session
Currently when an alter is performed on the primary constraint for a table, Admin Tool will warn that a corresponding change should also be performed on the primary index. However, you can back out of that warning and generate WSL which does not i...
Because we use in our env IDEP. IDEP needs datacapture on to get all U/I/D actions on table to be promoted to the anther env (where IDEP is connected to). Sometimes we hit issues that we forgot that datacapture is on the table , and in the change ...
We run the Compare on an integration test system and transport the created workstatement list in Converted format (action_convert_to_read_wsl = 'Y' ) to each target system. There, we make any necessary adjustments, e.g. to the schema or the databa...
We'd like to have a new ZPARM to limit the max number of version for packages. Once this number is reached a new version replaces the older one. Otherwise a COMMAND like MODIFY to facilitate DBA in housecleaning
Allow for Altering the Partitioning Columns Through Panels
When altering the columns involved in partitioning a table, several steps must be done which introduces complexity and potential for errors. This is the current provided solution: Do a GEN on the table and save the generated DDL. Adjust the partit...
Refer to case TS004736427 "Primary key maintenance enhancements"
The panel ADB21TN is the "Constraints" panel off of normal catalog navigation. It should have a command added to alter the constraint (simply send user to ADBP7CTP "Alter Primary ...
