Using SSDT on a build server

Mark DeMichele 0 Reputation points

I need to use SSDT on my build server. What exactly do need to install to get it working? I have a docker image that does the builds. It's based on, it would be nice to find a chocolatey package that installed what I needed. I found something for VS2017, but since I'm using VS2022, I was hoping to get an SSDT that was more like the one that runs in VS2022.

    Hello @Mark DeMichele,

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A forum.

    Generally, SSDT is installed by using VS Installer.

    From VS Installer => Modify => in Workloads tab select Data storage and processing workload and in Individual components tab select SQL Server Data Tools component => click Modify button.

    The SSDT component can also be installed by using command lines.

    For example, preparing a layout folder(VisualStudioSetup.exe --layout C:\VSLayout --add Microsoft.VisualStudio.Component.SQL.SSDT) => modifying VS to add SSDT component(C:\VSLayout\vs_setup.exe modify --installPath "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\2022\Community" --add Microsoft.VisualStudio.Component.SQL.SSDT --passive).

    For Analysis Services(SSAS), Integration Services(SSIS), or Reporting Services(SSRS) projects, you need to install the appropriate extensions from within Visual Studio with Extensions > Manage Extensions or from the Marketplace.

    More details, please kindly check this document: Download SQL Server Data Tools (SSDT) for Visual Studio.

    I can't easily confirm as I have it working now with the script I supplied and have since moved on to other things. Sorry.
