What are you trying to achieve?

I want to check data from table in different schema instead of default [dbo] using seeInDatabase

What do you get instead?

Error during executing SQL query.

If I use as table name: account.Note:

[PDOException] SQLSTATE[HY000]: General error: 208 Invalid object name 'account.Note'. [208] (severity 16) [(null)]

And when I provide table name with schema in this way: [account]. [Note]:

[PDOException] SQLSTATE[HY000]: General error: 102 Incorrect syntax near '='. [102] (severity 15) [(null)]

Example of using method:

$I->seeInDatabase('[account].[Note]', ['ID' => 1]);


  • Codeception version: v2.3.5
  • PHP Version: 7.1.8
  • Operating System: ubuntu 16.04
  • Installation type: Composer
  • Suite configuration:
class_name: ApiTester
        - Asserts
        - \ApiHelper
        - REST:
            url: http://localhost:8074
            depends: PhpBrowser
        - Db:
            dsn: ";dbname=xxxxxx;charset=utf8"
            user: xxxxxxx
            password: xxxxxxxxx
            dump: 'tests/resources/db/db-schema.sql'
            populate: true # run populator before all tests

getQuotedName method adds quotes around all identifiers, so you could try to use $I->seeInDatabase('account].[Note', ['ID' => 1]); as a workaround.

You are the first person to use Codeception with MSSQL in years, so you are welcome to improve it.
