Resolving Merge Conflicts in SQL Source Control – the Basics (video)
In this 35 minute livestream recording, I commit conflicting code to a Git repo in Azure DevOps Services using Redgate’s SQL Source Control, then step through options to fix the conflict. We first run through an example where we hit a conflict when pushing to the master branch and resolve that. Then we run through an example where we are using a feature branch and identify the conflict when doing a pull request to merge the change into master.
To follow along with this demo yourself…
- SQL Source Control is part of Redgate’s SQL Toolbelt. It is not free, but we have a free trial. If you don’t need automated build and deployments, you can also purchase SQL Source Control individually.
