    Hi,

    I believe I have discovered an alternative path forward today: Docker containers.

    The following article explains how to use Docker containers to create multiple SSRS instances on the same machine: http://www.sqlservercentral.com/articles/containers/178448/ - In theory, all you need to do is bind the exposed port for SSRS to a unique port for each container instance.

    I had stumbled upon this answer today while trying to figure out how to create repeatable test environment for Microsoft's Powershell Module ReportingServicesTools, and it occurred to me this would be a cheap way to also do multiple instances of SSRS on the same machine.

    NOTE: I have not yet tested this, just sharing my clever idea with everyone.

    I think I'll just push us to us AWS bi tools if this is how Microsoft wants to treat customers.

    This feature vastly simplifies development of certain types of applications. Would be interesting at least know if microsoft has some intention to implement it.

    <=-=Jul 27 2016 5:19PM=-=>

    A fully compliant implementation to ansi sql 2011 would nice too.

    <=-=Jul 28 2016 1:01AM=-=>

    I would also like to see bitemporal support added, it would be most useful!

    <=-=Mar 7 2017 11:54AM=-=>

    This feature would really help people trying to migrate their DBs from DB2 or Oracle to SQL Server that much easier.

    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.

    <=-=Jan 10 2017 9:43AM=-=>

    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

    <=-=Jan 10 2017 9:51AM=-=>

    @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…

    @Erland Sommarskog - quote is definitely needed, as per the RFC for CSV

    Quoting: https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc4180

    5. Each field may or may not be enclosed in double quotes (however
    some programs, such as Microsoft Excel, do not use double quotes
    at all). If fields are not enclosed with double quotes, then
    double quotes may not appear inside the fields. For example:

    "aaa","bbb","ccc" CRLF
    zzz,yyy,***

    For interpretation of "may not", please see this RFC: https://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2119.txt

    This would significantly aid Microsoft SQL Server competition with Amazon Aurora.
