Breaking changes:

To support Multi-Factor Authentication, we have migrated to Microsoft.Data.SqlClient from System.Data.SqlClient.

  • The Microsoft.Data.SqlClient has breaking changes. To resolve this, you can either configure ‘Encrypt=false’ or ‘TrustServerCertificate=true’ in the connection string. For more information on breaking changes in Microsoft.Data.SqlClient, refer this link.
