Online Documentation for DB Comparer for PostgreSQL

Compare options

Set specific parameters of comparison for each type of database objects.


Compare options

Here you can specify whether to perform Full database or Schema to schema comparing.

In the latter case select Source and Target schemas by clicking the btnEllipsis ellipsis button of the corresponding controls.


Select an object type in the object tree, set a flag to include the object type into the comparison process and define Compare properties in the corresponding group within the Compare Options tab.


The Script generation group allows you to specify whether a specific type of script (CREATE, ALTER, DROP) should be generated for objects of the selected type.


The Select All, Unselect All and Invert Selection buttons are implemented to make options selection easier.
