Supported for
Microsoft SQL Server (SQL Server 2005 and up)


Synonyms or Aliases are different names that point to existing database objects. They can be very useful if, for example, your target object belongs to a different schema or you want to have a shorter name.


The Synonym Editor offers the possibility to create, alter and drop synonyms. If you add or drop a synonym, the Synonyms node in the Database Navigator tree-view will display the change as well by adding or deleting the synonym from the list.


Below is an example of the Synonym Editor for Oracle:

In the Oracle Synonym Editor, you select a Schema, Object Type and the actual Object.
