The target SQL Server instance or instances. Defaults to the default instance on localhost.

Alias
Required True
Pipeline false
Default Value

Optional Parameters

-SqlCredential

Login to the target instance using alternative credentials. Accepts PowerShell credentials (Get-Credential). Windows Authentication, SQL Server Authentication, Active Directory - Password, and Active Directory - Integrated are all supported. For MFA support, please use Connect-DbaInstance.

Alias
Required False
Pipeline false
Default Value
-Database

Specifies the database(s) to process. Options for this list are auto-populated from the server. If unspecified, all databases will be processed.

Alias
Required False
Pipeline false
Default Value
-ExcludeDatabase

Specifies the database(s) to exclude from processing. Options for this list are auto-populated from the server. By default, system databases are excluded.

Alias

-IncludeSystem

If this switch is enabled, the user will be added to system databases.

Alias

-Login

When specified, the user will be associated to this SQL login and have the same name as the Login.

Alias

-Username

When specified, the user will have this name.

Alias

Alias
Required False

-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
-WhatIf

If this switch is enabled, no actions are performed but informational messages will be displayed that explain what would happen if the command were to run.

Alias wi
Required False
Pipeline false
Default Value
-Confirm

If this switch is enabled, you will be prompted for confirmation before executing any operations that change state.

Alias cf
Required False
Pipeline false
Default Value
