    This right here. We really need this supported or there is no path for us to go to production here.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    We assume that you are talking about ability to restore native backup (.bak files) taken from SQL MI to SQL Server 2017/2019.

    It’s a tough one unfortunately. Native backup contains binary data, and never been backwards compatible. E.g. you can’t restore backup from SQL 2012 on SQL 2008. Same logic applies here.

    SQL MI gets updates faster SQL Server, as soon we check-in code, it gets deployed with the next wave of updates on Azure. Same as SQL DB.
    Theoretically if you take backup of SQL MI now, and wait until SQL Server version release catch up, then you will be able to restore it.

    Can you please let us know what kind of issues with BACPAC you are encountering?

    Also, you can consider making transaction replication from SQL MI on on-prem as a way to move data around.

    Ultimately, I need a way to snapshot and move data. It needs to be as easy and as quick as a backup and restore is right now.
    The DDL layer is simple. Schema compare & dac pacs get you where you need to go. But storing and moving that data seems to be the hard part. What I want is something packaged all together that easy to use and automate. And quick.

    This is similar to my feedback located here: https://connect.microsoft.com/SQLServer/feedback/details/2769130/sql-2016-temporal-tables-with-triggers. The solution I suggest is similar to this, and could be used in many different cases developing using SQL server.

    <=-=Jan 10 2017 9:43AM=-=>

    I would love this too. The issue is that many/most applications don’t use Windows Auth in the connection to SQL Server (connection pooling issues, etc), so SQL can’t get the User information

    <=-=Jan 10 2017 9:51AM=-=>

    @Sanford

    Just to clarify, I am not asking for an “automatically store user name” feature. I’m asking for “automatically store whatever I want, based on whatever expression I provide.” So the fact that the user name may or may not be available is not really relevant.

    That said, there are plenty of workarounds for various situations. I imagine that if you’re using a shared connection, you can get some notion of “user” some other…

    This is a difficult one to handle technically. However the main theme is cost savings. Are there other cost-saving options (other than pausing) that could address this concern? For example, smaller vCore Managed Instances etc.? On the other hand, implementing pausable Managed Instance can also mean that resuming them will take several hours each time. Is this a concern? Thank you.

    Anthony Genovese commented  · 

    Smaller vCore MI sizes would fit our needs. Just like everyone else. Dev/QA envs. I don't mind it on overnight. I mind 8vcore as the minimum

    I have had the exact same issue, intermittently whenever I open script tasks all my code seems to have vanished and all the “ReadOnlyVaraiables” and “ReadWriteVariables” have also disappeared. It happens for c# and VB script tasks. This is is extremely frustrating and is impossible to develop a project when code randomly keeps disappearing. I’m wondering if this is a bug with Visual Studio 14.0.23107.0 D14REL. Can anyone at Microsoft shed some light on this please?

    <=-=Jun 29 2017 10:45PM=-=>

    Got the same problem. Seems like the Script Task is cleared when the project/Visual Studio i closed/shut down.

    <=-=Jul 18 2017 5:38PM=-=>

    Same problem for me, too. Once the original code in Script Task was still present after reloading the solution. But after that they are gone, along with ReadOnly/ReadWriteVariables and ConnectionManagers. I’m using SSDT 14.0.61705.170 (which just came out) with VS 14.0.25431.01 update…

    It’s a shame that this was submitted as just a “suggestion”. It should actually be listed as a “bug” because there’s only a comparatively small set of use cases where enumeration of the result set of elements is not important.

    <=-=Mar 11 2016 12:47PM=-=>

    I agree that an order column is required; one example use case is where two lists are passed in, and ordinal positions in one list correspond to positions in the other.

    <=-=Mar 11 2016 3:12PM=-=>

    Please see the related suggestion: STRING_SPLIT needs “RemoveEmptyEntries” option, like String.Split in .NET ( https://connect.microsoft.com/SQLServer/feedback/details/2462002/ ).

    <=-=Mar 12 2016 12:02PM=-=>

    This kind of function is primarily needed for de-serializing previously serialized arrays of values of any type format-able as text.
    I therefore recommend to have the result set of this function work excellent with this use-case.

    With de-serialized arrays there is a need to…

    I’m the first to post a useful comment. This must make me special.

    Seriously though, this would be an excellent solution to having to create a new “scratchdb” to hold my interim ETL data. This would be a major plus in simplifying design of a high performance app.

    <=-=Jul 3 2015 5:04AM=-=>

    In 2014, memory optimized tables, and delayed durability can be used help mitigate these Issues. However neither of this are always completely viable solutions. Brent’s proposed solution is likely the simplest way to achieve this with the least amount of unwanted impact. It is important to note that other platforms implement similar functionality as well. Notably Oracle.

    <=-=Nov 29 2016 3:58PM=-=>

    There are so many good things about this suggestion. I am amazed that SQL does not have the capability to turn off logging for certain tables that you define as no…
