Revision flags are an Enterprise feature that allows for quick tagging and identification of revisions based on user-assigned flags.

Using this feature, revisions can be flagged as incidences, bug-fixes, or through color codes that you can customize for your team.

Flags are purely informational and do not impact the project or underlying DDL in any way.

Revision Flags can be assigned from the Revisions menu.

Access Revisions from the main menu of the SqlDBM screen or the project dashboard.

Navigate to Revisions from the main menu of the SqlDBM

Or click on the project sub-menu in the Dashboard and select "Manage revisions."

From the Releases screen, access the sub-menu to bring up the Revision Flags.

Assign or remove flags by clicking on the icons. Users can assign multiple flags to any single revision.
