I am reviewing freshly generated scripts out of SSDT publish tools. These projects were built from a default template, as were the publication profiles. They set page_verify none for the database.

I was under some hazy impression that the best practice would be to have it set to checksum.

The only thing I can think of is that the SSDT target platform is Azure. Can someone clear this up with something authoritative?

The default options that ssdt chooses often aren't best practices, instead you should choose what you want. For page_verify I agree checksum but it is up to you:


Incidentally if you import from a production (or similar environment) and you choose "Import database settings" the actual settings will be imported from the database - if it is a new database I would get your dba's to create an empty one on a dev instance with their standard build etc.
