False Positive on user_id?

Nov 4, 2009 at 7:58 PM



I am running version 1.8 of the Azure Migration Wizard using the SQL Script tab.  I am getting an error "user_id is not supported in current version of SQL Azure" against a user defined column.  I am not using the USER_ID() function.  Is this a false positive?


--~ user_id is not supported in current version of SQL Azure
IF NOT EXISTS (SELECT name FROM sysindexes WHERE id  = object_id(N'[dbo].[usergroups]') AND name =N'idx2_usergroup')
CREATE index [idx2_usergroup] on [dbo].[usergroups](usergroup_name,user_id)


Thanks and Regards,

Tony Fedirko

Hi Tony,

Yes, you are correct.  That is an error on my part.  If you want, you can edit NotSupportedByAzureFile.config go to line 210 and change (S)?USER_ID to suser_id\s?\(['\w\s]*\). The finished line would look like this:

<NotSupported Text="(IS_SRVROLEMEMBER|SETUSER|SYSTEM_USER|suser_id\s?\(['\w\s]*\))" ReplaceWith="" SeverityLevel="2" ReplaceString="false" DisplayWarning="true" DefaultMessage="true" WarningMessage="" />

This should fix the issue.

If you want, just ignore the message.  The next time I upload SQLAzureMW I will have the fix in there.

Thanks for bringing this to my attention.
