        And these comments are only related to SSDT. What about SSRS and SSAS project types? Why do they have to be separate downloads? Why can they not be part of the Visual Studio install system? I should be able to check them off, as part of the 'Database Workloads"

          This is similar to my feedback located here: https://connect.microsoft.com/SQLServer/feedback/details/2769130/sql-2016-temporal-tables-with-triggers. The solution I suggest is similar to this, and could be used in many different cases developing using SQL server.

          I would love this too. The issue is that many/most applications don’t use Windows Auth in the connection to SQL Server (connection pooling issues, etc), so SQL can’t get the User information

          @Sanford

          Just to clarify, I am not asking for an “automatically store user name” feature. I’m asking for “automatically store whatever I want, based on whatever expression I provide.” So the fact that the user name may or may not be available is not really relevant.

          That said, there are plenty of workarounds for various situations. I imagine that if you’re using a shared connection, you can get some notion of “user” some other…

              Shouldn't SSMS KNOW there are open transactions for a file? This also affects the time it takes to CLOSE an unsaved script file if the connection (such as VPN) has been broken.

                Hi Thomas,

                The source control integration feature is currently missing in SSMS due to the switch to the VS 2015 isolated shell. The source control package is not included currently in the isolated shell package we get from Visual Studio. We are working on how we can reenable source control integration but it is a bit complicated. The MSSCCI provider that SSMS used to integrate with is not supported in VS 2015 so even if we reenable the menu option, the MSSCCI provider won’t install.

                Unfortunately I don’t have a specific solution yet but I hope we can get an answer to you soon.

                Cheers,
                Ken

                <=-=Jun 2 2016 5:42AM=-=>

                Still no source control in SSMS 2016 general release.

                <=-=Nov 25 2016 6:16AM=-=>

                11/25/2016 and there is still no source control in SSMS 2016.

                Todd Chittenden commented  · 

                It is sad, in my opinion that a tool such as SSMS, which is built off the Visual Studio shell, does NOT have native functionality to interact with standard MICROSOFT source control products, such as Visual Studio On Line.

                Earlier version had some semblance of interaction, but it was buggier than a trucker's windshield.

                SSMS needs NATIVE support for Source Control.

                  It encrypts the file with a key from the MACHINE? Who does THAT? Why is that piece of information not given to the user upon attempting this operation?

                  How about this: If you try to EXPORT your registered server and want to INCLUDE saved passwords, THEN it should REQUIRE a password to encrypt the export file.

                  Simple, useful, self-explanatory to the user!

                  Oh, and upon IMPORT, it switched all the SQL Server Authentication entries to Windows Authentication.
                  What an EPIC FAILURE. Do they TEST this stuff before they release it?

                        According to the log, this was started on April 8 2016. It is now 2018. 20 MONTHS have gone by. Any update?

                        Ditto this! I tried creating an OData Linkjed Service and there were MINIMAL fields you could fill in to set it up. So I assume that I need to use the Advanced code area. That failed miserably as what I put in didn't get into the TtpeProperties area as it was intended.
                        The link supplied by the moderator is useless as you simply CANNOT get the JSON into the format described in the article. I think it's a BUG in the OData linked service setup.

                          Azure Data Factory V2 now allows SSIS and Integration Services Catalog to be hosted on an Azure SQL DB. And you can (supposedly) hook it to a VNet and then hook that VNet to a Point-to-site VPN to have access to on-premise resources. But even without SSIS on Azure, check out ADF V2. They just released the GUI tools for the portal a few days ago.

                                Thanks for the feedback. We’re working on this. We started with the top bar, then added favorites, and continued by shrinking the list of resources after opening the resource blade. Much more is in the works — all based on your feedback. Keep it coming and, in the meantime, we’ll keep working on this to streamline the experience for you.

                                  Very much agreed. AND they should persist through a browser close/crash. I had notifications I was actively working on and Azure said 'we've made a change and need to re-open the portal but don't worry, all you work is saved.' Apparently, that did not include my notifications. I should be able to dismiss them individually, or as groups ("Clear all Green Checks" or similar).

                                        Knowing the value of "TODAY", in any given programming language is just basic stuff.
                                        How could I otherwise look up history for events that happened two months ago, or RETAIN HISTORY but only FILTER my Power BI report based on the AGE of the events if I did not know when TODAY is.

                                        It's as ubiquitous as the IF/THEN/ELSE or CASE constructs.

                                          Hey Folks,

                                          We have made some great progress on this idea and most of our services today do support move resources across groups.

                                          We are still working towards 100% support and while we do that it would be great if you can help us prioritize the missing services.

                                          Please file individual asks on each service category present in uservoice and vote for it.

                                          Thanks,
                                          Azure Portal Team
