The documentation states that the Save Compare Results only work on certain objects. This should be expanded to all supported objects. Priority would be given to database and tablespace followed by aliases then all other Db2 supported objects.
A compare was ran including a new table. I can exclude the new table but not the tablespace or alias. I shouldn't have to manually insert those.
"Save compare results"
Specify whether compare results are to be saved. Compare results are saved for only the following objects: tables, indexes, global variables and distinct data types.
The documentation for "Exclude Objects" lists all the supported object types for an exclude. So, why not make the tool generate these from saved compare results?
If this cannot be delivered then at minimum the documentation should be clarified.
"Creating exclude specifications from stored compare results" doesn't mention any specific objects. Also the link above should list the unsupported objects.
Please review case TS004429158.
How should it work?
This should be expanded to all supported objects. Priority would be given to database and tablespace followed by aliases then all other Db2 supported objects.
