Join Brian Randell for an in-depth discussion in this video Version control your SQL Server database, part of DevOps for the Database with TFS 2018.
- Once you've picked your primary version control format,…you're now ready to version control…your SQL server database.…When I tell people about this,…if they've never seen or heard about SSDT,…they wonder, "How do I do this, Brian?"…With SSDT,…you're basically taking the database catalog offline.…The catalog represents the collection of SQL server objects…inside a database.…Your tables, your views, your start procedures, et cetera.…
Now, a lot of people,…particularly if they've been around the industry for awhile,…will use the term schema.…I typically avoid that term…because schema is a first class object…when working with modern versions of SQL server databases.…So when I talk about the catalog,…I'm talking about that collection of objects…within the database.…Now, this idea of taking the database catalog offline…is known as creating a state model.…What's going to happen is, you're going to use the tools…to walk up to the database…and ask it to tell you all of its secrets.…
You're going to see the SSDT project take those secrets…
