dbForge Schema Compare for MySQL

We use Schema Compare for two main scenarios:
1) Creating schema upgrade scripts to use when deploying. As our schema grows and changes, we want to tie these changes to a specific build so related code changes will be deployed along with side database schema changes. We do this by using Schema Compare to compare the modified dev database to a stable staging environment database, and then save a sync script. We can then modify that script as needed (perhaps with some update statements for migration), and include that in the deploy artifacts, which our deployment will automatically run.
2) Syncing the developer database with changes from other developers, matching prod schema, or otherwise managing dev database instances.

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.

Cons

dbForge Schema Compare for MySQL

  • When viewing a table comparison, data is presented in a text-based format (such as a diff viewer). This is inferior to a more structured view like dbForge Data Compare has.

Workbench Enterprise

  • It has autocompleted, but I find it difficult to use or get to use.
  • It doesn't automatically complete table names or field names.

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 Schema 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 export the entire schema to a text file and use diff tools to compare differences.
