SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) is an integrated environment for managing any SQL infrastructure, from SQL Server to Azure SQL Database. SSMS provides tools to configure, monitor, and administer instances of SQL Server and databases. Use SSMS to deploy, monitor, and upgrade the data-tier components used by your applications and build queries and scripts.
Use SSMS to query, design, and manage your databases and data warehouses, wherever they are – on your local computer or in the cloud.
For customers in need of a cross-platform companion to SSMS for managing SQL and other Azure databases, use Azure Data Studio.
SSMS 19.1 is the latest general availability (GA) version. If you have a preview version of SSMS 19 installed, you should uninstall it before installing SSMS 19.1. If you have SSMS 19.x installed, installing SSMS 19.1 upgrades it to 19.1.
- Release number: 19.1
- Build number: 188.8.131.52
- Release date: May 24, 2023
By using SQL Server Management Studio, you agree to its license terms and privacy statement. If you have comments or suggestions or want to report issues, the best way to contact the SSMS team is at SQL Server user feedback.
The SSMS 19.x installation doesn’t upgrade or replace SSMS versions 18.x or earlier. SSMS 19.x installs alongside previous versions, so both versions are available for use. However, if you have an earlier preview version of SSMS 19 installed, you must uninstall it before installing SSMS 19.1. You can see if you have a preview version by going to the Help > About window.
If a computer contains side-by-side installations of SSMS, verify you start the correct version for your specific needs. The latest version is labeled Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio v19.1.
