I manage a few on-premise SQL Servers with SSMS, have been doing so for a while. Back in the day, I setup a local git repository to store all my scripts in, and this worked great for just me.

Times change and with more team members and more servers, I have since uploaded all my scripts to my company's Azure DevOps instance, which was 100% painless. When I started using SSIS/Visual Studio, I stored the projects in Azure DevOps to start, and that worked out.

What I can't seem to figure out is how to get SSMS to use Azure DevOps for a solution location. Is there a plugin I'm missing? Google searches for it don't seem to turn anything up.

SSMS is or was under the hood Visual Studio, but the took another path years ago. So unfortunately no Azure DevOps integration out of the box there.

There are however a number of vendors creating solutions as plugin or stand alone tool to support your process:


Stand alone, side-by-side or replacing SSMS

There is a lot out there, please be sure to look at your work process first before choosing a tool.
