Release Notes

This latest BIDS Helper release supports SQL Server Data Tools 16.5 and 17.1 in Visual Studio 2015. In other words, it supports SQL 2016 and SQL 2017 BI developer tools.

Install it from the Visual Studio Gallery.

NOTE: BIML support is currently disabled waiting on an updated engine from Varigence.
KNOWN ISSUE: When installing SSDT, install SSAS, SSRS, and SSIS. BIDS Helper does not currently support partial installs of SSDT.

In addition to SQL 2017 support (SSDT 17), this release also fixes the following issues:
For versions of BIDS Helper that work with previous versions of Visual Studio and SQL Server, see Release 1.7.0.

Bear with us as we work on moving from CodePlex to GitHub. We will keep this site posted with progress!

Reviews for this release

Lame duck release. Doesn't work as upon attempting to create a BIML File we get the following message: "BIML features are currently unavailable while we wait for Varigence to provide an update to the BIMLEngine component. "
