A quick update.

We did a sharing session for each tool assessed with Dev team, collected the feedback from them. Most developers prefer to use sqlbooster. Our DBA team also think it matches most requirements. We can control the authorization by creating the authorization file from our side, then sent it to dev to be used. The DBA account will not be leaked and the software can also utilize it. While developers can export the SQL analyze result to DBA team for further review.
We are preparing training session for the developers. If anyone is interested in the training materials, we can send the PPT to you once it's prepared.
BTW, the DBAs love SQLD360. None of us ever used it.

Thanks for your valuable advice.
