Creating Server Objects

 

To create a server object:

  • select the Database | New Object... main menu item;
  • select the type of object within the New Object dialog;
  • follow the steps of the wizard which guides you through the entire process of creating the object, or set the object properties using its editor - depending on the selected object type.

Note that you can also create a server object by selecting the appropriate context menu item of the DB Explorer tree or using the Ctrl+N shortcut.

 

To create a new object with the same properties as one of existing objects has:

Alternatively, you can right-click an object in the DB Explorer tree and select the Duplicate Object <object_name>... context menu item.

 

 

Editing Server Objects

 

To edit a server object:

  • select the server object in the DB Explorer tree;
  • right-click the object to call its context menu and select the Edit <object type> <object name> context menu item, or double-click the object to open it in its editor;

 

 

Renaming Server Objects

 

To rename a server object:

  • select the object to rename in the DB Explorer tree;
  • right-click the object and select the Rename <object type> <object name>... item from the context menu;
  • edit the object name using the Rename Object... dialog.

Note: This operation is possible for all objects except for Logins, Credentials, Linked Servers, Endpoints, DTS Packages.

 

 

Dropping Server Objects

 

To drop a server object:

  • select the server object in the DB Explorer tree;
  • right-click the object to call its context menu and select the Drop <object type> <object name> context menu item;
  • confirm dropping in the dialog window.

 

Note: If more convenient, you can also use the following shortcuts:

Ctrl+N to create a new object;

Ctrl+O to edit the selected object;

Ctrl+R to rename the object;

Shift+Del to drop the object from the server.

 

When using an object editor, you can benefit from tabs. To switch between tab views, click on their respective tabs at the top of the main editor window. You can do it at any time, since the tab views are absolutely independent.

 

To compile a newly created or edited object, you can use the iconCompile Compile item available within the Navigation bar or Toolbar of the object editor.
