I have previously written article about SQL SERVER Database Coding Standards and Guidelines Complete List Download. I just received a question from one of the blog reader is there any way we can just prevent violation of company policy. Well Policy Management can come in handy in this scenario.
If our company policy is to create all the Stored Procedure with prefix ‘usp’ that developers should be just prevented to create Stored Procedure with any other prefix. Let us see a small tutorial how to create conditions and policy which will prevent any future SP to be created with any other prefix.
Let us first create the conditions which defines that name of the database object should start with ‘usp’.
Now create policy for all the Stored Procedure of the database and assign previously created a condition of naming convention to all the Stored Procedure of the database.
Make sure that the Policy is enabled.
Now try to create Stored Procedure with incorrect names. It will not let you create it, but will create an error.
If you try to create Stored Procedure prefixed with ‘usp’ it will create it successfully.
Policy Management is a very detailed subject and I will write more tutorial about this subject in future.
