After changing the files in a SQL Server Data project, it’s time to deploy the changes to a live SQL Server instance. SQL Server Data Tools provides the publish tool which send the changes to a connected database server. This is the ideal choice for deploying to a server that you have access to can connect to from the developer computer.
- [Voiceover] After making your database changes,…the next step is to deploy them,…and SQL Server Data Tools provides a couple of ways.…The first way is the publish way,…and this works well when you have…a visible connection to the database,…so somewhere on your local machine…or on your network, or on an Azure server,…you can see the machine, and to do that…kind of deployment, you right-click…and choose Publish.…The other option is to use a DACPAC file deployment,…and a DACPAC is like a SQL Server database installer.…
