Define the database connections that will be used, either for existing databases or the new names for new databases.

Deploy Dacpac

Deploy Dacpac

Use the Deploy Dacpac functions to deploy new versions of the databases or to update existing databases. The deployment function will update any existing database by running the pre-deployment script and deploying the Dacpac.
