Redgate DLM Automation Build
Redgate Software develop database lifecycle management tools (DLM) that help your organization include databases alongside applications in agile processes.
Redgate DLM Automation (available as part of the SQL Toolbelt) is a tool that lets you apply continuous integration and release management processes to Microsoft SQL Server databases.
Using this extension you can build, test, synchronize and publish SQL Server databases, as part of your application build and release process.
How to use this Extension
You need to commit your database schema to source control. The easiest way to do this is with Redgate’s SQL Source Control, available to download from the Redgate website on a 28 day free trial.
Within the extension, there are four actions available:
- Build – builds your database into a NuGet package from the database scripts folder in source control
- Test – runs your tSQLt tests against the database
- Sync – synchronizes the package to an integration database
- Publish – publishes the package to a NuGet stream
