    Hi @Eric Kang, thanks for the session.

    SSDT look great, but unfortunately it isn't very useful in real world CI/CD, because it fail to update existing database if there are data. Unless I'm missing something.

    Without ability to write custom migration scripts for specific changes, like changing column datatype, or adding non-nullable column without default value, I have to update the existing database manually anyway.

    Do you have some tips how to deal with such changes?

    Do you have any examples with on premises (non-Azure) database deployments.

    Hi Eric,

    Thanks for this great demo. I am trying to follow the same process to deploy on Azure SQL server. However, I am running into an issue. The release pipeline requires account with SQL Authentication support but in order to execute statement like 'CREATE USER [r_azure_sd_sql_admin] FROM EXTERNAL PROVIDER' we essentially need Azure active directory password/integrated authenticated user.

    So, is there support for any AAD authentication in the release pipeline as I am not sure if we can have a SQL authentication enabled for Azure AD user. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Please let me know your thoughts.
