Note that it will be used automatically when available on the server where the Runtime is running.

WARNING: Prerequistes: Azure azcopy command line utility must be installed on the machine where the Runtime is located, to be able to use it. Refer to Microsoft Azure documentation to learn how to install it.

Support reversing indexes from Azure SQL

Indexes are now reversed when performing a reverse on Azure SQL Database Metadata.

Change Data Capture (CDC)

Multiple improvements have been performed to homogenize the usage of Change Data Capture (CDC) in the various Components.

Parameters have been homogenized, so that all Templates should now have the same CDC Parameters, with the same support of features.

Multiple fixes have also been performed to correct CDC issues. Refer to the changelog for the exact list of changes.
