Prepare your connection string in an environment variable. This sample uses SQL Server on Docker container and you may also use your local default instance. For more connection string samples, visit https://www.connectionstrings.com/sql-server/.

docker run -d -e "ACCEPT_EULA=Y" -e "[email protected]!" -p 1400:1433 -d mcr.microsoft.com/mssql/server:2017-latest

SETX YUNIQL_WORKSPACE "c:\temp\yuniql\samples\basic-sqlserver-sample"
SETX YUNIQL_CONNECTION_STRING "Server=localhost,1400;Database=helloyuniql;User Id=SA;[email protected]!"

Apply migrations with yuniql run. Yuniql discovers the project directory, sorts all versions, creates the target database if it doesn’t exist and runs all migration steps in the right order. Each migration step may include .sql files, directories, subdirectories, and csv files.

yuniql run --platform sqlserver -a --debug
yuniql list --platform sqlserver
