Export Data from SQL Server to Adobe Analytics through SSIS

Easily push SQL Server data to Adobe Analytics using the CData SSIS Tasks for Adobe Analytics.

SQL Server databases are commonly used to store enterprise records. It is often necessary to move this data to other locations. The CData SSIS Task for Adobe Analytics allows you to easily transfer Adobe Analytics data. In this article you will export data from SQL Server to Adobe Analytics.

Add Source and Destination Components

To get started, add a new ADO.NET Source control and a new Adobe Analytics Destination control to the data flow task.

Configure the ADO.NET Source

Follow the steps below to specify properties required to connect to the SQL Server instance.

  1. Open the ADO.NET Source and add a new connection. Enter your server and database information here.
  2. In the Data access mode menu, select "Table or view" and select the table or view to export into Adobe Analytics.
  3. Close the ADO NET Source wizard and connect it to the destination component.

Create a New Connection Manager for Adobe Analytics

Follow the steps below to set required connection properties in the Connection Manager.

  1. Create a new connection manager: In the Connection Manager window, right-click and then click New Connection. The Add SSIS Connection Manager dialog is displayed.
  2. Select CData AdobeAnalytics Connection Manager in the menu.
  3. Configure the connection properties. A typical connection requires:
    • GlobalCompanyId
    • RSID
    • OAuthClientId
    • OauthClientSecret
    • CallbackURL

    Adobe Analytics uses the OAuth authentication standard. To authenticate using OAuth, you will need to create an app to obtain the OAuthClientId, OAuthClientSecret, and CallbackURL connection properties. See the "Getting Started" section of the help documentation for a guide.

    Retrieving GlobalCompanyId

    GlobalCompanyId is a required connection property. If you do not know your Global Company ID, you can find it in the request URL for the users/me endpoint on the Swagger UI. After logging into the Swagger UI Url, expand the users endpoint and then click the GET users/me button. Click the Try it out and Execute buttons. Note your Global Company ID shown in the Request URL immediately preceding the users/me endpoint.

    Retrieving Report Suite Id

    Report Suite ID (RSID) is also a required connection property. In the Adobe Analytics UI, navigate to Admin -> Report Suites and you will get a list of your report suites along with their identifiers next to the name.

    After setting the GlobalCompanyId, RSID and OAuth connection properties, you are ready to connect to Adobe Analytics.

Configure the Adobe Analytics Destination

In the destination component Connection Manager, define mappings from the SQL Server source table into the Adobe Analytics destination table.

  1. Double-click the Adobe Analytics destination to open the destination component editor.
  2. In the Connection Managers tab, select the connection manager previously created.
  • Specify the table into which the data will be exported: On the Component Properties tab, enter the table name in the TableName property, under the Custom Properties section. In this case, you will transfer AdsReport records.
  • On the Column Mappings tab, configure the mappings from the input columns to the destination columns.
  • Run the Project

    You can now run the project. After the SSIS Task has finished executing, data from your SQL table will be exported to the chosen table.
