Spent most of today working through an issue with the “Reporting” server, aka SQL Server, SSAS, SSRS, SSIS and a linked MySQL server.
Problem was a missing table from the linked MySQL server. Really highlighted the complete lack of DB and Reporting versioning.
Also, in retrospective, really see the value of doing merges of branches as a part of CI before doing the final merge to master. Everyone else is keen on feature toggles, but there’s only so much you can do with feature toggles.
Will have to see whether GoCD can do auto (local) merge and test and give that info to be added to the PR in BitBucket/Stash.
