dbatools: On The Way To 1.0

Chrissy LeMaire points out a bunch of changes to dbatools:

Aliases have been added for the changes, so these are not breaking changes:

  • Mismatched Copy commands have been renamed to match their corresponding Get command names (ie. Copy-DbaCentralManagementServer is now Copy-DbaCmsRegServer).

  • Most parameters named Password have been changed to SecurePassword. They’ve always been a SecureStringdata type but this makes that clear.

  • The parameters ExcludeAllSystemDb and ExcludeAllUserDb have been changed to ExcludeSystem and ExcludeUser, respectively.

These are some of the non-breaking changes, but this latest release has several breaking changes too.  Chrissy is promising no more breaking changes for a little while, so it’s probably a good time to upgrade and check those scripts to see what you need to change.
