VS 2019 TargetServerVersions

  • I am trying to find out which SQL Server versions are supported in VS 2019 /SSDT for Reporting Services. We have  SQL Server 2008 R2. My Infrastructure team is building a new computer with Windows 10 and it will have VS2019 on it. Our Report Server is SQL Server 2008 R2 and I want to make sure it will be compatible.  I have only been able to determine that the default TargetServerVersion is 2016. Can someone point me in the right direction?  Thanks in advance.

    I realize that SQL Server 2008R2 is out of support and I have suggested that we upgrade those databases, but I am not confident that that will happen.

  • Thanks for posting your issue and hopefully someone will answer soon.

    This is an automated bump to increase visibility of your question.

  • In VS 2019 / SSDT, there are three options in the drop down list for TargetServerVersion:

    • SQL Server 2008
    • SQL Server 2008 R2, 2012 or 2014
    • SQL Server 2016 or later

    Another thing to note is there is no longer a standalone SSDT installer, now the functionality is installed as Extensions.


  • Thank you!
