How to connect to git in SQL Server 2016/2017 without using any third party tool


#1

I was curious to know if we can connect to Git in SQL Server Management Studio without using any third party paid tool like RedGate, Agent SVN, dbForge. An example in Eclipse IDE we can connect to Git using free plugin Egit. Is there something of that sort in SQL Server?

I referred a blog great step by step guide but I cannot see option link database to source control when I right click on my database. I guess that option is only visible after RedGate is installed. (http://www.sqlservercentral.com/blogs/steve_jones/2015/10/05/sql-source-control-and-gitgetting-started/)

Also when I go to Tools-> Options ->Search "Source Control" couldn't find anything.

Your next best option is visual studio code with a sql server plug in. Visual studio code is free and has a nice git feature.
