dbForge Data Compare for MySQL

Data Compare covers two main use cases for us:
1) Keep data in sync between our development, test, and staging environments. When a full database import isn't practical, we will use Data Compare to sync data for key tables. We use this for configuration tables as well as operational test data.
2) Troubleshoot prod issues. When we have trouble reproducing user issues, Data Compare helps us compare our test environment data vs prod environment data to identify problems.

Workbench Enterprise

Workbench Enterprise is consistent across devices and users so far. It works the same, and access is easy.I have a problem with its security. If you use an enterprise password to access databases, it's very easy to click the show password on the connection page and expose the enterprise password. You shouldn't allow users to use the same accounts to access the database because that means all users are sharing the same password.

Our team does the support for us. Sometimes we see download related issues that can easily be fixed by our team. Most issues you will see with one user in your org will probably happen to others, so keep a log and track those issues. Then have a fix for them somewhere that everyone has access to. This will save you a lot of time troubleshooting.

Alternatives Considered

dbForge Data Compare for MySQL

We haven't tried any other tools that do comparisons like Data Compare does. Our method prior to buying this tool was to manually run queries on each database and compare the output using text compare or by eye.
