Schema Comparison - Missing?

Post by glittle » Tue 17 Nov 2020 18:48

I just installed dbForge for Oracle. The Fusion menu appears under "Extensions".

The Fusion / Oracle menu does not contain "New Schema Comparison" as described here https://docs.devart.com/fusion-for-orac ... hemas.html

How do I do a comparison?

(If I could attach an image here, I could show the menu that I do get.)

if you use dbForge Fusion for Oracle Professional Edition, then New Schema Comparison can be found:
MainMenu -> Extensions -> Oracle -> New Schema Comparison.

Also, I would like to recommend, in your case, to use Studio, not Fusion.

Thanks for your reply.

I'm not familiar with all the DevArt tools... can you explain what "Studio" is? I have "dotConnect for Oracle" which includes "dbForge Fusion for Oracle" which includes this feature: "Option to compare and synchronize Oracle database schemas"

But I cannot find it.

After installation, the VS 2019 menus include "Extension / Fusion" but not "Extension / Oracle".

MainMenu -> Extensions -> Fusion -> Oracle -> New Schema Comparison
dbForge Studio for Oracle is a standalone application, dbForge Fusion for Oracle - pluggin for Visual Studio,
The functionality is similar, but in Studio it is more modern.

Here we have the list of Features for Studio:

Thanks for the reply.

Here is what I see in the menus. As you can see, "New Schema Comparison" is missing.

Could you please clarify which edition of dbForge Fusion do you have installed? You can check it in the About window:
MainMenu -> Extensions -> Fusion -> Oracle -> About

Schema Compare is available in Professional edition.

That solves it.

I have "dotConnect for Oracle Developer Edition" which includes "dbForge Fusion for Oracle Standard Edition".

The documentation at https://docs.devart.com/fusion-for-orac ... hemas.html and the other pages about "Fusion for Oracle" don't mention that the schema comparison is a limited feature.

Thanks for explaining it.
