I work on a cloud application using SQL Server (2008R2 or 2012 depending on the server). Recently some clients have requested the ability to view query plans themselves.
I can get the query plan xml without difficulty, but I've just realised that the majority of these clients aren't going to have a SQL Server available to them to open the *.sqlplan file that we've normally used inhouse for examining them.
Is there any way to provide the sqlplan files to these clients without them requiring SQL Server to view them? It's preferred if I can do it directly via Powershell and SQL, but I'm open to anything.
