Synopsis

Copy-DbaInstanceTrigger migrates server triggers from one SQL Server to another.

Description

By default, all triggers are copied. The -ServerTrigger parameter is auto-populated for command-line completion and can be used to copy only specific triggers.

If the trigger already exists on the destination, it will be skipped unless -Force is used.

Syntax

Copy-DbaInstanceTrigger
    [-Source] <DbaInstanceParameter>
    [[-SourceSqlCredential] <PSCredential>]
    [-Destination] <DbaInstanceParameter[]>
    [[-DestinationSqlCredential] <PSCredential>]
    [[-ServerTrigger] <Object[]>]
    [[-ExcludeServerTrigger] <Object[]>]
    [-Force]
    [-EnableException]
    [-WhatIf]
    [-Confirm]
    [<CommonParameters>]

 

Examples

 

Example: 1
PS C:\> Copy-DbaInstanceTrigger -Source sqlserver2014a -Destination sqlcluster

Copies all server triggers from sqlserver2014a to sqlcluster, using Windows credentials. If triggers with the same name exist on sqlcluster, they will be skipped.

Example: 2
PS C:\> Copy-DbaInstanceTrigger -Source sqlserver2014a -Destination sqlcluster -ServerTrigger tg_noDbDrop -SourceSqlCredential $cred -Force

Copies a single trigger, the tg_noDbDrop trigger from sqlserver2014a to sqlcluster, using SQL credentials for sqlserver2014a and Windows credentials for sqlcluster. If a trigger with the same name
exists on sqlcluster, it will be dropped and recreated because -Force was used.

Example: 3
PS C:\> Copy-DbaInstanceTrigger -Source sqlserver2014a -Destination sqlcluster -WhatIf -Force

Shows what would happen if the command were executed using force.

-EnableException

By default, when something goes wrong we try to catch it, interpret it and give you a friendly warning message. This avoids overwhelming you with "sea of red" exceptions, but is inconvenient because it basically disables advanced scripting. Using this switch turns this "nice by default" feature off and enables you to catch exceptions with your own try/catch.
