Migrate Data into SQL Server Deployment

This article will explain how you can migrate your SQL Server database into SQL Server Deployment.

1. Locate your target deployment

Log in to the Control Panel and locate your target deployment on the Home page or the My Applications page.

2. Create a database and a super user

Go to the "DB & User" page to create a database and a super user so you can restore your backup file later in the platform.

Before you start transferring data, please back up your original MS SQL database to .bak file.
