This section guides utilizing the setup script to define the objects created during the installation of your application. Additionally, it delves into the utilization of application roles and their integration within the setup script.

About the Setup Script:

Within the application, the setup script comprises SQL statements executed during the installation, upgrade, or testing phases. It is imperative for every application to include a setup script, with its location explicitly detailed in the manifest file.

The setup script serves to articulate the creation and modification of objects during the installation or upgrade of an application.
