Support for Azure SQL Database

DLMDLM Posts: 2 New member
I have loved SQL Prompt for such a long time but now my relationship with this product will have to end as it doesn't support Azure SQL Database. It *accidentally* worked with SSMS 17 and before but has completely stopped working with SSMS 18 onwards. Please Please Please can you start supporting it again??


  • Thanks for getting in touch, we always appreciate feedback.

    Based on demand from customers we'll be increasing the priority of our work to support Azure DB, looking at it during the remainder of 2019. We'll keep you updated with our plans as this develops.

    In the meantime, do reach out if I can do anything else to help.

    Hi @DLM

    Can you let me know what authentication method you're using to connect to your Azure SQL DB in SSMS 18?

    Hi @TomW

    Since this post I have found out that all the suggestions work when using a SQL User but they do not work when using AzureAD user (with MFA). I assume you know this already.

    Hi @DLM

    Thanks for confirming. Yes, we're very aware of the issues using MFA in SSMS 18 and we're currently working to resolve them.

    Hi @ducman

    The current version of SQL Prompt supports Azure SQL Database with Multifactor Authentication. 

    For more information on database compatibility, see here:

    I have the latest version and it does not suggest any tables in my Azure SQL DB with MFA.

    I am experiencing the same issue,Windows 11, SSMS 19 Preview 2 running SQL Prompt using MFA. The log shows the following when trying to authenticate:

    My logs show "loading skipped" for that instance.
