Command Line Options for /schemacompare Operation

By default, dbForge Schema Compare for Oracle generates a file with command line arguments and writes all the comparison and synchronization options into it. Each option is written like the following:

/option_name: [Y/N]

You can edit the file to turn on/off required options. To turn on comparison and synchronization options, edit their values to Yes, Y, True, T, or On. To turn off the options, change their values to No, N, False, F, or Off.

Each option has a full and short name. You can type either name of a required option into Command Prompt instead of editing the file.

See the list of the options with their full and short command line names below.
