Containers and Environments

Introduction to Containers and Environments

Containers are used in Combine to deploy SQL code and execute queries against multiple databases in parallel, and retrieve unified results from all queried databases. Containers and Environments are extremely useful for passing SQL code packages between the Development (Dev), Quality Assurance (QA), and Production SQL server environments, and easily deploying release packages on any number of databases and servers in those environments. The use of Containers and Environments in the Dev-QA-Production change management and code release process is described below, and continued in the section titled The Dev-QA-Production Release Process.

General Note: Be sure to register all servers that you will be working with in the Object Browser in Combine before defining Containers or executing code in the editor. Combine servers are used throughout the application and hold the connection information for all databases and servers.
