Export Data from SQL Server to Dynamics CRM through SSIS

Easily push SQL Server data to Dynamics CRM using the CData SSIS Tasks for Dynamics CRM.

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 Dynamics CRM allows you to easily transfer Dynamics CRM data. In this article you will export data from SQL Server to Dynamics CRM.

Add Source and Destination Components

To get started, add a new ADO.NET Source control and a new Dynamics CRM 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 Dynamics CRM.
  3. Close the ADO NET Source wizard and connect it to the destination component.

Create a New Connection Manager for Dynamics CRM

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 DynamicsCRM Connection Manager in the menu.
  3. Configure the connection properties. A typical connection requires:
    • User
    • Password
    • URL
    • CRM Version

    The connection string options meet the authentication and connection requirements of different Dynamics CRM instances. To connect to your instance, set the User and Password properties, under the Authentication section, to valid &service; user credentials and set the Url to a valid Dynamics CRM server organization root. Additionally, set the CRMVersion property to 'CRM2011+' or 'CRMOnline'. IFD configurations are supported as well; set InternetFacingDeployment to true.

    Additionally, you can provide the security token service (STS) or AD FS endpoint in the STSURL property. This value can be retrieved with the GetSTSUrl stored procedure. Office 365 users can connect to the default STS URL by simply setting CRMVersion.

Configure the Dynamics CRM Destination

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

  1. Double-click the Dynamics CRM 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 Account 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.
