Item: SSMS missing updates
Microsoft has made SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) a product on its own and is providing updates directly for the product.
It is a good practice to keep your SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) healthy by updating when needed. Updates are essential, especially from a security point of view.
Checking for updates (manually)
- Open SSMS, click on tools.
- Select the check for updates.
- A new window will pop up, displaying the current version of SQL Server Management Studio components and the latest version available. Here, you can also enable or disable the automatic check.
