Having a hard time getting SQL Server Management Studio ( SSMS ) to work in a very edge case.

Sought to see if I can get around it.

Azure Data Source

What is Azure Data Studio?


Azure Data Studio is a cross-platform database tool for data professionals using the Microsoft family of on-premises and cloud data platforms on Windows, MacOS, and Linux.

Previously released under the preview name SQL Operations Studio, Azure Data Studio offers a modern editor experience with IntelliSense, code snippets, source control integration, and an integrated terminal. It is engineered with the data platform user in mind, with built in charting of query result sets and customizable dashboards.

The source code for Azure Data Studio and its data providers is available on GitHub under a source code EULA that provides rights to modify and use the software, but not to redistribute it or host it in a cloud service.
