Azure Data Studio vs SQL Server Management Studio part 3

This post continue to look at the differences between Azure Data Studio and SQL Server Management Studio. This post is focus on Security. In SSMS you can find a dedicated Security node.

In ADS is the same, it has a dedicated Security node.

When you right click a credential such as sa. There will be a list of shortcut menu. The most important item in the list is actually the Properties. That allow you to grant permission to a database, define the role(s) for that credential and more.

In ADS, beside a Refesh, when I was right clicking the credential, there is nothing else.

In SSMS, when you click on a security role. There is also a list of item display in a shortcut menu.

In ADS, it is still only the Refresh for now. Whether Microsoft going to extension the features?

    Worse, with SSMS 18.x versions, key features like Source Control support are now left on the cutting room floor (which is curious from several points of view, not the least of which is that the Visual Studio product that architecturally underlies the new SSMS 18.x version DOES include Source Control support, the SSMS coding team had to actually _deliberately excise it_ from SSMS).
    Yet, questions on that subject are given replies from MS like “Oh, well Azure Data Studio supports Source Control.” Oh yeah? Where are the tutorials for that? …and how does it actually replace the need for Source Control of SQL Server entities (from _any_ means of modification: SSMS, SMO, AzureDS)? Obvious Answer: It doesn’t.
