Sql Server collation for Crucible

I have read in the Crucible doco that when using SQL Server the database needs to have case sensitive collation, specifically Latin1_General_CS_AS

But does Crucible require that the same collation be set for the entire sql server instance? Or can the server collation be different?

For example will having a tempdb with a case insensitive collation cause problems?

It is not needed for the entire SQL server instance, it is needed only for the database that you are creating for Crucible.

Hi Michael,

I was doing some research into this issue for you and I've found that Crucible should indeed be using a Case Sensitive collation schema, (specifically Latin1_General_CS_AS), as stated in this document: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CRUCIBLE/Migrating+to+SQL+Server#MigratingtoSQLServer-Step1.InstallandCreateanSQLServerDatabase

In
fact it seems that this knowledge base article also describes one of the problems you can expereince from having a case insensitive schema configured, so I would strongly advise you to use the suggested schema: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/FISHKB/SQLServer+DB+is+using+a+collation+which+is+not+case+sensitive

All
the best,
John

Thanks for the quick response John.

I think my question was a little unclear though, i saw in the doco that the Crucible/Fisheye database needs case sensitive collation. But my question was whether or the entire sql server instance needs case sensitive collation as well.
For example I know that having a different collations between your database and tempdb can cause problems if using temp tables.
Will update the question to try to make this clearer.
