Upgrade a BC CRONUS Database using Docker
A few days ago I streamed how I try to upgrade a Business Central CRONOS Database just using docker: Apart from a few throwbacks it went quite well, but better watch yourself 😉 However, I promised to publish the script I created so you don’t need to write it down from the video.

For some more critical processes I wrote some basic test cases and automated them.
