Customize SQL Server Notifications for DDL Changes

Issue

In a past tip,

SQL Server DDL Triggers to Track All Database Changes, and in two or three subsequent meet-ups,

I disclosed how to catch all DDL changes on a SQL Server occasion and store them

in an evaluating table. I cleared out it as an activity to the peruser to decide how (and

how frequently) they would utilize that table to inform their group about changes that had

occurred. A few people just included an email call inside the trigger, and others

set up occupations that surveyed the table intermittently. I needed to post a subsequent tip

to depict how I would do it, alongside two or three redresses to the manner in which I set

things up in those prior tips.

Arrangement

We should make some housekeep off the beaten path first. There were two vital

things I needed to rectify that were raised by perusers of the past tips:

In the event that a DDL occasion happens under preview separation, and the reviewing database

does not bolster preview seclusion, you will get this mistake:

Msg 3952, Level 16, State 1, Procedure DDLTrigger_Sample

Depiction disconnection exchange fizzled getting to database ‘AuditDB’

since depiction disconnection isn’t permitted in this database. Utilize ALTER DATABASE

to permit depiction disconnection.

To maintain a strategic distance from this mistake, you’ll need to issue this announcement against your

examining database:

Adjust DATABASE AuditDB SET ALLOW_SNAPSHOT_ISOLATION ON;

On the off chance that you executed anything to furnish standard clients with extra authorizations

to get to the IP address of the client through sys.dm_exec_connections, for example,

VIEW SERVER STATE or IMPERSONATE, you should change the accompanying bits of

code:

Pronounce @ip VARCHAR(32) =

(

SELECT client_net_address

FROM sys.dm_exec_connections

WHERE session_id = @@SPID

);

To this:

Pronounce @ip varchar(48) = CONVERT(varchar(48), CONNECTIONPROPERTY(‘client_net_address’));

Presently you can expel any extra consents you in all actuality, since any client can

get to their own data from the DMV.

Affirm, with those off the beaten path, how about we proceed onward to the warning framework.

You might need to be told about each and every change, except the vast majority would

need to maintain a strategic distance from the commotion that would make and spotlight on objects that changed in any

given time span. For this reason we’ll accept that you as of now have Database

Mail up and running (audit

these tips on the off chance that you have to set it up or it isn’t working accurately).

Tell on Every SQL Server DDL Change

On the off chance that you need to be told about each and every change, the arrangement is basic:

you can adjust the DDL trigger to call msdb.dbo.sp_db_sendmail each time a DDL

change happens.

Make TRIGGER DDLTrigger_Sample

ON DATABASE

FOR CREATE_PROCEDURE, ALTER_PROCEDURE, DROP_PROCEDURE,

ALTER_SCHEMA, RENAME, CREATE_VIEW, ALTER_VIEW,

CREATE_FUNCTION, ALTER_FUNCTION, ALTER_TABLE – , … different occasions

AS

Start

SET NOCOUNT ON;

Pronounce @EventData xml = EVENTDATA(),

@ip varchar(48) = CONVERT(varchar(48), CONNECTIONPROPERTY(‘client_net_address’));

Pronounce

@subject nvarchar(max) = N”,

@body nvarchar(max) = N”,

@db sysname = DB_NAME(),

@schema sysname = @EventData.value(N'(/EVENT_INSTANCE/SchemaName)[1]’, N’nvarchar(255)’),

@object sysname = @EventData.value(N'(/EVENT_INSTANCE/ObjectName)[1]’, N’nvarchar(255)’),

@event sysname = @EventData.value(N'(/EVENT_INSTANCE/EventType)[1]’, N’nvarchar(100)’);

Start TRY – if email mistakes, still need review table refreshed

SET @subject = @@SERVERNAME + N’ : ‘ + @event + N’ : ‘ + @object;

SET @body = CONVERT(nvarchar(max), @EventData);

– you might need to add extra points of interest to body, for example, username, hostname, and so on.

Executive msdb.dbo.sp_send_dbmail

@profile_name = N’profile name’,

@recipients = N’DBA group assumed name’,

@subject = @subject,

@body = @body;

END TRY

Start CATCH

PRINT ‘mistake’; – do genuine blunder taking care of here, similar to log special case some place

END CATCH

Embed AuditDB.dbo.DDLEvents

(

EventType,

EventDDL,

EventXML,

DatabaseName,

SchemaName,

ObjectName,

HostName,

IPAddress,

ProgramName,

LoginName

)

SELECT

@event,

@EventData.value(N'(/EVENT_INSTANCE/TSQLCommand)[1]’, N’nvarchar(max)’),

@EventData,

DB_NAME(),

@schema,

@object,

HOST_NAME(),

@ip,

APP_NAME(),

SUSER_SNAME(); – or ORIGINAL_LOGIN() or CURRENT_USER or …

END

GO

The vast majority are not obsessed with that thought, however, in light of the fact that at that point they’re

getting messages at erratic occasions and they may get advised about a whirlwind

of comparative or even indistinguishable changes to a similar question.

Inform on a Schedule for SQL Server DDL Changes

Setup here is somewhat more mind boggling, however it is very simple to arrange things

so you are just told once per day and age about a change (or change compose)

for any given protest.

To begin with, expel any of those inform on-each change alters you made to your DDL

trigger above.

Next, we’ll have to add two segments to our examining table; one to track

regardless of whether an occasion has just been incorporated into a warning, and another to connote

at the point when the warning was conveyed:

Utilize AuditDB;

GO

Change TABLE dbo.DDLEvents ADD NotifyStatus tinyint NOT NULL DEFAULT(0);

GO

Refresh dbo.DDLEvents SET NotifyStatus = 2; – as of now informed

GO

Change TABLE dbo.DDLEvents ADD NotifyDateTime datetime2(0);

GO

Refresh dbo.DDLEvents SET NotifyDateTime = SYSUTCDATETIME();

GO

This implies new occasions will be qualified for the following notice, yet everything

that is as of now in the table will be considered “as of now advised” –

this guarantees when you run this method the first occasion when, you aren’t immersed

with a major “all of time” email.

Next, we’ll require a put away system that will stamp all the new occasions since

the last notice as “in process,” and after that total those and

manufacture a message with one line for every question (as well as occasion compose). The motivation to stamp

them initially is to cut out the arrangement of occasions you will advise on, and

not have that set disturbed by any new occasions that come in while handling is occurring.

Make PROCEDURE dbo.DDLEvents_Notify

AS

Start

SET NOCOUNT ON;

– presumably need exchange taking care of here, however once

– an email is lined, ROLLBACK can’t precisely fix it!

Refresh dbo.DDLEvents

SET NotifyStatus = 1 – in process

WHERE NotifyStatus = 0; – new

On the off chance that @@ROWCOUNT > 0

Start

Pronounce @body nvarchar(max) = N”,

@subject nvarchar(max) = @@SERVERNAME + N’ : $x$ add up to DDL changes since $d$’;

– in the event that you need a column for each question + occasion compose blend, uncomment EventType refs here:

;WITH agg(o,d,c) AS

(

SELECT o = DatabaseName + N’.’ + SchemaName + N’.’ + ObjectName

/* + N'(‘ + EventType + N’)’ */,

d = MIN(EventDate),

c = COUNT(*)

FROM dbo.DDLEvents

WHERE NotifyStatus = 1

Gathering BY DatabaseName, SchemaName, ObjectName – , EventType

),

final(o,c,d,sumc) AS

(

SELECT o,c,d = MIN(d) OVER(), sumc = SUM(c) OVER() FROM agg

)

SELECT @body += CHAR(13) + CHAR(10) + o + N’ (‘ + CONVERT(varchar(11),c) + ‘ change(s))’,

@subject = REPLACE(REPLACE(@subject,N’$x$’,CONVERT(varchar(11),sumc)),

N’$d$’,CONVERT(char(10),d,120)+’ ‘+CONVERT(char(8),d,108))

FROM last;

Executive msdb.dbo.sp_send_dbmail

@profile_name = N’DBA Team’,

@recipients = N'[email protected]’,

@body = @body,

@subject = @subject;

Refresh dbo.DDLEvents

SET NotifyStatus = 2, – as of now told

NotifyDateTime = SYSUTCDATETIME()

WHERE NotifyStatus = 1;

END

END

GO

I made the DDL trigger in a database called TsD, at that point rolled out a few improvements to

two put away methodology, and after that ran the system above. To dodge the complexities

of sending letters outside of my VMs, I utilize a free work area customer called

Papercut

to recreate email, and here is the thing that I got:

Verification that my email warning worked.

At long last, you can simply make a basic SQL Server Agent work that calls this strategy.

How frequently you run this, obviously, all relies upon the exchange off between your need

for up-to-the-minute data and your affectability to alarm weakness. At my last

creation shop, once multi day was more than adequate, yet you may need notices

inside a couple of minutes (and possibly just amid business hours), so set up your timetable

suitably.

Synopsis

It is genuinely direct to manufacture an adaptable warning framework, so you

can remain over DDL changes in your databases – notwithstanding when they are made outside

of source control frameworks or construct and arrangement forms. On the off chance that the cautions are coming

too quick or not sufficiently quick, it is anything but difficult to modify the calendar with the goal that you’re

rolled out mindful of improvements at the correct pace that bodes well for you.
