SQL Maestro Group is happy to announce the release of MS SQL Maestro 17.6, a powerful Windows GUI solution for Microsoft SQL Server administration and database development.

Please consider the list of new features implemented in this version since the last official release:

New feature highlights:

  • This version has been successfully tested with SQL Server 2017 Community Technology Preview 2.1 (the latest SQL Server 2017 version available at the moment). Hope it will work fine with the official release too.

  • Support for row-level security policies has been implemented (SQL Server 2016 and higher). These policies enable you to implement restrictions on data row access. For example ensuring that workers can access only those data rows that are pertinent to their department, or restricting a customer's data access to only the data relevant to their company.

    New policies can be created with the appropriate wizard that allows you to define policy properties as well as add predicates to the policy.

    Existing policies can be viewed/modified via the corresponding editor. Among other things the editor provides the Dependencies tab that allows you to quickly determine the tables affected by the policy.
