Hi,
I am using MS Sql server and i need to create a replica of my Database for testing purpose and whenever any changes made on my database then the replica database will be automatically update or i update my replica database using any command. Is anyone suggest me the solution.

What I have tried:

I google it but not found any proper solution. i found only backup and restore and export data option in ms-sql. which is not the right solution for me.

Your development DB shouldn't even be on the same server instance as the production DB, much less linked in any way to the actual data.

You should be using a local-to-your-dev-machine SQL server instance (Express is fine) and a separate copy of the DB as any tiny mistake on your part - and they are easy to make when you're in a hurry to fix something - can badly affect the production data.
Or better, representative sample data in the same table structure in a local copy so you don't have to worry about data protection and GDPR.

You - the developer - shouldn't have access to production data at all!

Database replication is not an easy subject, but you might try one of these solutions:
