DBCC CHECKIDENT - Manually set a new current identity value for the identity column

Wednesday 04 June 2014

Δεν είναι σπάνιο το να έχεις ένα identity field μέσα σε ένα πίνακα. Κάποια στιγμή πιθανότατα θέλεις να σβήσεις όλα τα δεδομένα του πίνακα και όταν αρχίσεις να γεμίζεις ξανά τον πίνακα θέλεις το identity field να ξεκινάει από την αρχή.

Πιθανότατα να γνωρίζεις ότι αντί να κάνεις DELETE FROM table το οποίο δεν αρχικοποιεί ξανά το identity field μπορείς να κάνεις TRUNCATE TABLE το οποίο αρχικοποιεί ξανά το identity field.

Όμως δεν μπορείς να κάνεις TRUNCATE TABLE καθώς αυτός ο πίνακας έχει referential integrity με άλλους πίνακες και για να κάνεις truncate θα πρέπει να ξηλώσεις όλα τα referential integrity constraints.

Επειδή αυτό είναι κάτι το οποίο ρωτάνε αρκετοί η απάντηση είναι απλή και ακούει σε ένα dbcc statement που δεν είναι άλλο από το DBCC CHECKIDENT το οποίο υπάρχει από τον SQL Server 2005 και μετά και το documentation του στα BOL είναι το παρακάτω (κάνω copy ένα μέρος του για την ευκολία στην ανάγνωση σας, το original υπάρχει εδώ)

Προσέξτε την δυνατότητα του RESEED!

Ελπίζω να μην ξεχάσετε όταν θα αντιμετωπίσετε το ίδιο θέμα ξανά
