SQLPS Update

Chrissy LeMaire has an update on SQLPS and SQL Server Linux:

  • Microsoft is investigating options for a cross-platform lightweight SQL Management Studio GUI tool for Linux.

  • Microsoft is investigating open sourcing the SQL Server PowerShell provider and cmdlets, and that it “makes a lot of sense” and “aligns with what Microsoft has already done with our Azure PowerShell cmdlets on github.” This is being tracked by connect item 2442788.

  • Microsoft doesn’t have dates or more details to share for any of these items at this time and will keep the community updated on their progress as they continue to evaluate our plans based on customer feedback

I’m most interested in the first of these points, but this is all interesting news.  Also check out her guest appearance on the PowerScripting Podcast.
