At last week’s presentation to the Edmonton SQL Server user group, I spoke at length about the many extensions that are available for Azure Data Studio, and was asked by Chris Wood to share all the extensions I use.

It’s worth mentioning that for the most part Azure Data Studio extensions are extremely lightweight, both in download size and memory usage. Installing this many on SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) would slow it down dramatically.

Note: not all extensions can be installed from the Extensions pane. For many of them you must visit a website, download the VSIX file and install it manually using the File > Install Extension from VSIX Package menu option. In most cases you can trust extensions from reputable publishers, but always take care.

  • I was able to run SQL server on MAC using Docker by running it along with the Azure Data Studio. In order to connect to a server, you need to go to preferences of your Docker settings and increase the Memory allocation from the default of 2GB to minimum 4GB (as SQL server needs min 3.25GB space). Save and restart the docker.
  • So when you try to navigate to the.bak file in Azure Data Studio (in the next step), you’ll find yourself “stuck” inside the Docker container’s file system, with no way of accessing the.bak file on your Mac’s file system. Therefore, we copy the.bak file to the container’s file system first, then we can access it via Azure Data.

Azure Data Studio Linux

Hi Are there plans for a SSMS to run on Mac OSX, since there is a Visual Studio for Mac? Thanks davej Hello, The SSMS team has no plan at this time to move SSMS to be cross.

Since I use a MacBook as my day-to-day computer, I am listing two sets of extensions, because some of them have dependencies on the underlying operating system.
