Using PgAdmin with WiltonDB - wiltondb/wiltondb GitHub Wiki

On this page:


  1. install WiltonDB
  2. check that it can be accessed with SSMS

TDS and PostgreSQL ports

In addition to TDS protocol connections (port 1433 by default) WiltonDB supports connections over PostgreSQL protocol (port 5432 by default).

In general, full PostgreSQL functionality is available over the 5432 port (including backups and restores). The same data can be observed from both TDS and PostgreSQL connections. Though the caution needs to be taken with modifying the data over PostgreSQL connection and then accessing it over TDS connection. Depending on the permissions setup such data may not be visible or accessible over TDS connection, see more details on this in Babelfish documentation.

Databases and tables created in SSMS can be browsed in PgAdmin in a corresponding schema:
