The database or databases to process. If unspecified, all databases will be processed.

Alias

Pipeline false
Default Value
-InputObject

A collection of databases (such as returned by Get-DbaDatabase)

Alias
Required False
Pipeline true (ByValue)
Default Value
-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.

Alias
Required False
Pipeline false
Default Value False
