Connect to the SSIS Catalog database (SSISDB) in Azure
Get the connection information you need to connect to the SSISDB Catalog database hosted on an Azure SQL Database server. You need the following items to connect:
- fully qualified server name
- database name

You can't create the SSISDB Catalog database on Azure SQL Database at this time independently of creating the Azure-SSIS Integration Runtime in Azure Data Factory version 2. It's the Azure-SSIS IR that runs SSIS packages on Azure. For more info, see Deploy SSIS packages to Azure.
Before you start, make sure you have version 17.2 or later of SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS). If the SSISDB Catalog database is hosted on SQL Database Managed Instance (Preview), make sure you have version 17.6 or later of SSMS. To download the latest version of SSMS, see Download SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS).
