SQL Source Control 5 data-only migration script not syncing

Created a "data only" migration script for the sole purpose of updating one record in a table (we're experimenting with using this to deploy DML scripts).

The script:
Use this migration script to make data changes only. You must commit any additive schema changes first.
Schema changes and migration scripts are deployed in the order they're committed.

UPDATE PEPFAR.RefReportingCycle SET IsLightCycle = 1 WHERE Name = '2016 COP'


Using TFS Build vNext task to "sync" to a target (test) database. In the build logs I see the following (and in the database on the target machine, I don't find a RedGateLocal.DeploymentMetadata table). Note that the SQL file referenced is indeed the migration script's file:

Not sure what we're doing wrong.

    Hi Craig,

    It looks like the build step is building the parent folder of the database scripts, which seem to be in the "Database" subfolder. If you build the "Database" subfolder instead of its parent then it should work correctly when you try and sync.

    Does that help?

    Beautiful!! That solved the issue.

    Thanks so much for the quick reply!

    FYI, the TFS Build definition we are using is one we've been using for a year now without any (well, many :) ) problems. We recently upgraded to SQL Source Control 5 partly to use the new migration scripts model but didn't realize we should change our TFS Build tasks. Other customers of yours may experience similar issues.

    Thanks again,

    Hi Craig,

    I'm pleased to hear that everthing is now working. You were actually building the incorrect folder in the first place, but because of how the build process works you were able to get away with it! The new migration scripts feature in version 5 of SQL Source Control adds a "Custom Scripts" subfolder - because it was deeper in the directory tree than was expected, it was being treated as a folder of database objects rather than migration scripts.
