Put Debugger back into SSMS 18
The SSMS Debugger is critical for debugging complex T-SQL Queries, please return it to SSMS 18
Debugging stored procedures has become lot painful in ssms 18. Please put the debugger back.
Please put the debugger back! Thank you.

Please bring Debugger back in SSMS.
VS is not a option in production Environments!
please bring it back!!!
please bring it back!!!!
I agree!! I am back on 17, as this is a critical feature
needed this today
I agree. Debugging from vs 2019 is a chore as it freeze 99% of the time.

We will stick to SQL-Server 2017 as long as possible if there is no TSQL-Debugger for newer Versions of SQL-Server.
Installing VS is no option in production environments.
Long Live 17.9.X
You guys tried this back in 2005 and eventually put this in...It's funny how short the memory is. SSDT don't compare to the SSMS feature set of 17.9...
Please add debugger back to SSMS 18
David Fechner commented
I'm back to using SSMS 17.9.1 for now :-(
please bring it back. why introduce the complexity of visual studio? and now i am blocked from upgrading. i need to downgrade to ssms 17.9. i really don't know what you were thinking. not everyone using sql is using managed code!

Roger Fraser commented

Anmar Mansur commented
Seriously Microsoft? What is wrong with you?!! I'm moving back to 17, and staying there.

Debugging in Sql Server is a critical feature for those who use it. This is disappointing and significantly increases time required to develop stored procedures.
This makes Sql Server much less competitive in the marketplace. Oracle has a very nice debugger and PostgreSQL introduced debugging functionality starting with PostgreSQL 8.3.
Bad enough that the debugger was removed be even worse when the suggested alternative VS+SSDT crashes when trying to debug a stored procedure. A bug has been opened, but until it is fixed you need to keep SSMS 17.9.1 installed.
It is really useful tool for programmers
please do not remove it.
