SQL Operations Studio Linux

Great news, a visual way to manage SQL Server from Linux.

SQL Operations Studio came to fill a gap we were waiting to develop and manage SQL Server databases on Linux. In the link https://github.com/Microsoft/sqlopsstudio we can see more information like the features below.

Feature Highlights

  • Cross-Platform DB management for Windows, macOS and Linux with simple XCopy deployment
  • SQL Server Connection Management with Connection Dialog, Server Groups, and Registered Servers
  • Object Explorer supporting schema browsing and contextual command execution
  • T-SQL Query Editor with advanced coding features such as autosuggestions, error diagnostics, tooltips, formatting and peek definition
  • Query Results Viewer with advanced data grid supporting large result sets, export to JSON\CSV\Excel, query plan and charting
  • Management Dashboard supporting customizable widgets with drill-through actionable insights
  • Visual Data Editor that enables direct row insertion, update and deletion into tables
  • Backup and Restore dialogs that enables advanced customization and remote filesystem browsing, configured tasks can be executed or scripted
  • Task History window to view current task execution status, completion results with error messages and task T-SQL scripting
  • Scripting support to generate CREATE, SELECT and DROP statements for database objects
  • Workspaces with full Git integration and Find In Files support to managing T-SQL script libraries
  • Modern light-weight shell with theming, user settings, full screen support, integrated terminal and numerous other features

Let’s see how it works:

The process is very simple. First step download de file in this link https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=862646

After download the next step is to extract the files in a folder wherever you want and run the sqlops file.

My first impression is quite good. A good visual tool to work with SQL Server on Linux. I like the execution plan view and how to manage the databases.

Comparing with SQL Server Management Studio I miss some options such as:

  • LinkedServer Objects
  • Maintenance Plans
  • Replication
  • Database Mail
  • Extended Events

The conclusion is I really can work on that and run all my scripts and create objects like linkedservers, extended events or replications. That helps a lot to try a new platform concepts.
