mssql for Visual Studio Code

Welcome to mssql for Visual Studio Code! An extension for developing Microsoft SQL Server, Azure SQL Database and SQL Data Warehouse everywhere with a rich set of functionalities, including:

  • Connect to Microsoft SQL Server, Azure SQL Database and SQL Data Warehouses.
  • Create and manage connection profiles and most recently used connections.
  • Write T-SQL script with IntelliSense, Go to Definition, T-SQL snippets, syntax colorizations, T-SQL error validations and GO batch separator.
  • Execute your scripts and view results in a simple to use grid.
  • Save the result to json or csv file format and view in the editor.
  • Customizable extension options including command shortcuts and more.

See the mssql extension tutorial for the step by step guide.

See the SQL developer tutorial to develop an app with C#, Java, Node.js, PHP, Python and R with SQL Server databases.

What's new in 1.4.0

Contributions and "thank you"

We would like to thank all our users who raised issues, and in particular the following users who helped contribute features or localization of the tool:

What's new in 1.3.1

  • Fixed issue #1036 where copy/pasting Unicode text can fail on Mac depending on the active locale environment variable
  • Fixed issue #1066 RAND() function using GO N produces the same result
  • Syntax highlighting more closely matches SSMS for local variables, global system varaibles, unicode string literals, bracketed identifiers, and built in functions
  • Show all error messages instead of just the first one when query execution results in multiple errors

Contributions and "thank you"

We would like to thank all our users who raised issues, and in particular the following users who helped contribute features or localization of the tool:

  • @rhires for updating and editing the Kerberos help documentation
  • @zackschuster for cleaning up the VS Code API wrapper to remove a deprecated function call
  • We would like to thank everyone who contributed to localization for this update and encourage more people to join our open source community localization effort.

What's new in 1.3.0

  • Fixed an issue where peek definition and go to definition failed for stored procedures.
  • Improved performance for peek definition and go to definition.
  • Added support for GO N syntax.
  • Fixed issue #1025 where query execution would fail when executing from file paths containing special characters
  • A community-contributed fix for snippets that failed on databases with case-sensitive collations.

What's new in 1.2.1

  • Support for multi-root workspaces in preparation for the feature's release in Visual Studio Code. When running with multi-root workspaces, users will be able to set many configuration options at the folder level, including connection configurations.
  • Exporting results as CSV, JSON, or Excel files now shows the operating system's save-as dialog instead of using text-based dialogs to name the saved file.
  • Fixed issue #998 Intellisense against Azure SQL DBs very inconsistent.

What's new in 1.2

  • Support for macOS High Sierra.
  • VSCode-Insiders users will see their connections are now read from and saved to the Insiders settings file instead of the regular Visual Studio Code location. Fixes #242.
  • Saving connections no longer affects comments in the settings file #959.
  • Intellisense errors and suggestions can be disabled on a per-file basis #978. Use the MS SQL: Choose SQL Handler for this file action or click on the MSSQL status bar item when a .sql file is open to disable intellisense on that document.
  • Fixed issue #987 Cannot change password of a saved profile.
  • Fixed issue #924 Database name with $ is not showing up correctly in database list.
  • Fixed issue #949 Drop database fails most of the time because the db is in used.
  • Fixed issue MS SQL: Execute Current Statement where it did not handle 2 statements on a single line correctly.
  • Improved support for SQL Server 2017 syntax by refreshing IntelliSense and SMO dependencies.

Contributions and "thank you"

We would like to thank everyone who contributed to localization for this update and encourage more people to join our open source community localization effort. mssql for Visual Studio Code was opened for community localization since February 2017 for the following languages French, Italian, German, Spanish, Simplified or Traditional Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Russian, Brazilian Portuguese. If you see a string untranslated in your language, you can make an impact and help with translation. You can find out how by checking https://aka.ms/crossplattoolsforsqlservercommunitylocalization.

What's new in 1.1

  • Preview support for Integrated Authentication (aka Windows Authentication) on Mac and Linux. To use this you need to create a Kerberos ticket on your Mac or Linux machine - see this guide for the simple process. Once this is set up, you can say goodbye to SQL passwords when connecting to your servers!
    • This feature is in preview in .Net Core 2.0. The corefx repository tracks issues related to SqlClient and we recommend issues setting up Kerberos tickets be raised there.
    • macOS "El Capitan" and older versions will not support this feature or any other features requiring a new SqlToolsService version. To benefit from Integrated Authentication, "Execute Current Statement" and other new features we recommend updating to the latest OS version.
  • New code snippets:
    • sqlGetSpaceUsed shows space used by tables. Thanks to Rodolfo Gaspar for this contribution!
    • sqlListColumns shows columns for tables matching a LIKE query. Thanks to Emad Alashi for this contribution!
  • Support for connecting using a connection string. When adding a connection profile you can now paste in an ADO.Net connection string instead of specifying server name, database name etc. individually. This makes it easy to get strings from the Azure Portal and use them in the tool.
  • Support for empty passwords when connecting. Password is no longer required, though still recommended! This is useful in local development scenarios.
  • Improved support for SQL Server 2017 syntax by refreshing IntelliSense and SMO dependencies.
  • Fixed all code snippets so that tab ordering is improved and snippets no longer have syntax errors
  • Fixed issue where snippets were not shown when mssql.intelliSense.enableIntelliSense was set to false.
  • Fixed issue #911 where tools service crashed when Perforce source code provider is enabled in the workspace.
  • Stability fixes to reduce the likelihood of SqlToolsService crashes.
  • Fixed issue #870. Added an "Execute Current Statement" command that executes only the SQL statement where the cursor is currently located.
  • Fix issue #939 "Show execution time for individual batches". To enable open your settings and set mssql.showBatchTime to true.
  • Fix issue #904. Added a "Disconnect" option to the status bar server connection shortcut. Clicking on this now lists databases on the current server and a "Disconnect" option.
  • Fix issue #913. OpenSuse Linux distributions are now supported.
