Why SSMS 17.x and further doesn't support SSIS


Staff member
Everything is in the title, I can't find why did they remove this function on 17.x version.
I quote:
SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) – SSMS version 17.x or later does not support connecting to the legacy SQL Server Integration Services service.<br />

So as a purpose of training on this feature, I have got to install SSMS and SQL SERVER 16.x for example isn't it?
I have installed 16.5 version so I have to find exactly same version for SQL server which means SQL SERVER 2016. Did I understand correctly please?
Thank you for your answer.
