KB: How to display the IDERA tab in Azure Data Studio

Per the first bullet of the "Use Extension" section of the "Details" tab of the documentation of the extension in Azure Data Studio:

  • Add a new connection for a server that has an IDERA SQL DM repository database named "SQLdmRepository"
  • Select the server to connect and wait until the icon is green
  • Right-click the server connection and select "Manage"

That is, to display the IDERA tab, create a connection that contains the SQL Database, right-click in the connection and select "Manage". Installed extensions do not display in Azure Data Studio unless a SQL Database connection is created and managed.
