SQL Server Integration Services is Microsoft’s powerful platform for implementingExtract, Transform and Load (ETL) solutions. It allows SQL Server Professionalsto solve complex business intelligence tasks and work with a wide range of datasources. Microsoft provides a graphical tool for designing and developing IntegrationServices projects. This tool has always been an integral part of the Visual Studio.However, the name of this tool as well as the method of its installation variesfrom version to version of Visual Studio (VS). In this article, we are going toillustrate how to install the SQL Server Integration Services development tool forthe latest version of Visual Studio.


As mentioned above, Microsoft’s tool for developing Integration Servicesprojects is named differently in different versions of the Visual Studio. For example,for the SQL Server 2008/2008R2 integration services, this tool was VS 2008’sBusiness Intelligence Development Studio (BIDS) and came with the SQL Server installationmedia. In VS 2010, the tool was renamed as the SQL Server Data Tools (SSDT) andshipped as a part of the SQL Server 2012 installation media. In VS 2012/2013, thistool was slightly renamed as SSDT-BI and needed a separate download. In VS 2015,it was called SSDT and needed a separate download. In VS 2017, this tool could beinstalled during the VS installation. It is worth mentioning that BIDS, SSDT-BI,and SSDT can be used not only for working with SSIS projects, but also SQL ServerAnalytical Services and SQL Server Reporting Services projects. Additionally, itis important to note that SSDT is backward compatible, which means that projectsdesigned on the newer versions of SSDT can run on older versions of SQL Server.

Now, after that historical review, let’s move to the latest release ofVisual Studio – VS 2019 and see what this version provides as an SSIS developmenttool. For this version of the VS, there is no standalone installer for SSDT. Whilein this version the core components of SSDT for creating database projects haveremained integrated in Visual Studio, the Integration Services, Analysis Services,and Reporting Services projects have become just an extension of the VS. Thus, inorder to install the tool for SSIS development, we first need to install VS 2019.Therefore, we will divide our article into two parts. In the first part we willdescribe the installation of VS 2019 and in the second part, will illustrate theSSIS’s extension installation.

Installing Visual Studio 2019

After that, we choose the theme and click on 'Start Visual Studio':

Well, we have installed Microsoft Visual Studio 2019 on our computer. Now, it’stime to add the extension for developing Integration Services projects.

In the next window, we type 'integration' to find 'Integration ServicesProject' and click on it:

We choose a name for our project:

Hence, it is ready! We opened the interface where we can design and develop SSIS2019 packages:


To sum up, we reviewed the updates related to the tool for SQL Server IntegrationServices projects development in the VS 2019. As we have seen, in this version ofthe VS, the tool for designing SSIS projects is installed as an extension of theVisual Studio. We have also explored how to install Visual Studio 2019 and how toadd the Integration Services Projects extension to it.
