Issue with Azure DMS creation

Hi ,

I have tried to create the Azure DMS for SQL Server migration but it is asking me to install Azure Data studio and Azure SQL Migrate. I used DMS earlier also but it didnt ask me to install any software. Can some one please confirm if there is any setup we need to do to avoid Azure data studio.

New DMS creation page:

Old DMS creation page:


Azure Database Migration service
Azure SQL Database
SQL Server Migration Assistant
SQL Server Migration Assistant
A Microsoft tool designed to automate database migration to SQL Server from Access, DB2, MySQL, Oracle, and SAP ASE.

    The Azure SQL Migration extension for Azure Data Studio enables to use the new SQL Server assessment and migration capabilities that Azure Data Studio is providing. That is the reason DMS is pushing for its use.

    Azure Database Migration Service prerequisites that are common across all supported migration scenarios include the need to:

    • Download and install Azure Data Studio
    • Install the Azure SQL Migration extension from the Azure Data Studio marketplace.
