Export Data from SQL Server to FTP through SSIS

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

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

Add Source and Destination Components

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

Create a New Connection Manager for FTP

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 FTP Connection Manager in the menu.
  3. Configure the connection properties. A typical connection requires:
    • RemoteHost

    To connect to FTP or SFTP servers, specify at least RemoteHost and FileProtocol. Specify the port with RemotePort.

    Set User and Password to perform Basic authentication. Set SSHAuthMode to use SSH authentication. See the Getting Started section of the data provider help documentation for more information on authenticating via SSH.

    Set SSLMode and SSLServerCert to secure connections with SSL.

    The data provider lists the tables based on the available folders in your FTP server. Set the following connection properties to control the relational view of the file system:

    • RemotePath: Set this to the current working directory.
    • TableDepth: Set this to control the depth of folders to list as views.
    • FileRetrievalDepth: Set this to retrieve and list files recursively from the root table.

    Stored Procedures are available to download files, upload files, and send protocol commands. See the Data Model chapter of the FTP data provider documentation for more information.

Configure the FTP Destination

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

  1. Double-click the FTP 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 Notes 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.
