A few new things I’ve noticued snder table properties in SSMS 2016 and 2017.
Table Properties – Microsoft Docs
1) I noticed a new page for ‘Security Predicates’ and wasn’t quite sure what this displays. I finally figured out this refers to (Row Level Security. A security policy is created, which links a table to the function that will determine if a row will be displayed or not. As part of the policy a predicate is created, either a Filter (filter rows read) or a Block (block a write) predicate.
This information is also available by querying the sys.security_predicates view.
2) Under ‘General’, there is a ‘GraphDB’ section with two properties ‘Table is a node table’ and ‘Table is an edge table’. In the upcoming release of the SQL Server 2017 engine there will be graph database functionality added.
Microsoft Docs – SQL Graph
It looks like SQL Server will implement the graph database with separate tables for nodes and edges.
