Hi SQL Navigator users, we wanted to share the exciting news about the upcoming SQL Nav 2023 release!
Our goal with this release is to ensure SQL Nav supports the latest database and platform environments and includes top-priority defect fixes. To make sure we cover those priority defects, we wanted to reach out to the community and ask for your feedback. Please tell us about your top 10 priority issues or concerns you currently have working with SQL Nav.
I'm sorry, I can't believe that.
You want to release in 2023 and now (after more than 2 years of complete standstill) you ask us users for priorities.
Could it be that license fees are due again now and Quest just wants to make sure that these are payed again - on an obscure promise?
You don't give a specific release date, nor do you give a deadline by which feedback must be received to even be considered.
Don't you find that strange yourself?
I must agree with @andre.meier here. This is a welcome surprise but we need more specific dates. I will need to reach out to our team and having some type of timeframe would allow us to coordinate an answer based on feedback over that period. Do you want feedback posted to this forum? Also can you give an idea of what issues you are already addressing? Such as those already raised in the beta version feedback.
here are things that a colleague has written down: #1 Wrong SQL after changing a view in the view view (either the last comma is in the wrong place, or the column names are all INVISIBLE). #2 Wrong mapping of the order of triggers in the tree after changes. #3 Extremely slow building of triggers in the tree (left) or in the list (right). #4 When the connection is gone and you want to navigate on the build, the navigator goes partially to nirvana and you have to kill the app. #5 With the time of working with the navigator it gets slower and slower.
One more thing that occurred to me, became/is more important over time:
(easy/convenient) way to connect to the Oracle Cloud (OCI).
Thanks everyone for the feedback so far. We will forward the lists to the engineering team for evaluation. We will try and include issues that are reproducible and fixable in time for the 8.0 release. Should the team need additional data for any of the reported issues we will reconnect with you.
