Interactive SQL can integrate with third-party source control systems, allowing you to perform many common source control operations on files from within Interactive SQL. On Windows, Interactive SQL integrates with most source control products that support the Microsoft Common Source Code Control API (SCC), such as Microsoft's Visual SourceSafe. On Windows and all other platforms, you can also configure Interactive SQL to use source control products that do not support the SCC API. In that case, you provide Interactive SQL with a command line to run for each of the source control actions. Output from those commands appears in a log window.
Interactive SQL supports the following tasks (as long as the task is supported in the source control product):
If the underlying source control program does not support an action, its corresponding menu item is disabled. For example, Visual SourceSafe supports all of these actions, but using a custom (command line) source control system does not support opening a source control project, or running a source control manager.
For more information about the supported actions, see:
You should be familiar with the operations of your source control program before attempting to use it from Interactive SQL.
