Just in time for PASS Summit, a new release of the Extended Events SSMS Addin has been published online. This build fixes a few known bugs with the Addin and adds one minor feature into the Addin.
- Compatibility issues with SSMS 2008 R2. (Uninstall any previous version manually before installing the new release)
I have to give many, many, many thanks to Mladen Prajdic (Blog/Twitter) for his assistance in working with Reflection to allow a single version of the Addin to work with 2008 and 2008 R2. If you haven’t already, checkout his SSMS Toolspack which is another excellent Addin to SSMS.
- Correction to the Tree Refresh so that it refreshes properly after a change has been made to an Event Session, or when a new session has been created through the UI.
- The scripting in the Event Session Editor has been corrected to properly generate a script to the clipboard, a file, or a new SSMS Window to match the functionality that previously existed in the external application.
- The addition of a check box on the Session Editor to start the session immediately upon creation. This has been a personal pet peeve that I have intended to correct for a while now, but never got around to it.
If you are attending PASS Summit this week, I’ll be presenting an Introductory session on Extended Events in which I'll be doing a demo of this Addin and how it simplifies working with Extended Events. If you attend my session make sure you also attend Adam Machanic's session as well.
