What the tools? No SSDT in VS2017

In Visual Studio 2017 Community, I can't develop SSIS packages out of the box like I could with Visual Studio 2015. I went looking, and they're doesn't appear to be a SSIS SSDT for VS2017.

Instead, I had to install VS2017 Community Edition, and head to the marketplace to find tools that I used to be able to get as a part of the SSDT download.

Report Projects for Visual Studio

Analysis Services Modeling Projects

But I still need to edit SSIS packages, which, according to the blog at this MSDN link, support is "forthcoming".


Back to Visual Studio 2015 for a while longer, I guess.
