The easiest way is to use the free MS tool DMA = Data Migration Assistant v5.5 , it checks all known possible compatibility issues for you.
Backward compability for Azure Managed Instance, Azure SQL server and SQL server
I'm thinking about moving database located on SQL Server 2012 to Azure managed instance or SQL server 2019.
I was reading about backward compatibility of those two sql server models and it seems both of them support databases even from SQL server 2008,
but if I got it right, beside of backward compatibility, I need to check changes in datatypes and deprecated system procedures, because this is not covered by backward compatibility
Am I correct?
