SQL Change Automation 3

SQL Change Automation Core

SQL Change Automation Core was an in-the-box entitlement exclusive to Visual Studio 2017 Enterprise Edition users, containing a sub-set of the functionality provided in the full edition of SQL Change Automation.

SQL Change Automation Core is only available as part of Visual Studio 2017 Enterprise edition 

There will be no Core Edition of SQL Change Automation from version 4.0 onward. In order to ensure you do not accidentally upgrade to a version that doesn’t support Core edition, it is recommended to turn off auto-updates for the SQL Change Automation extension.
