Export Data from SQL Server to IBM Cloud SQL Query through SSIS

Easily push SQL Server data to IBM Cloud SQL Query using the CData SSIS Tasks for IBM Cloud SQL Query.

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 IBM Cloud SQL Query allows you to easily transfer IBM Cloud SQL Query data. In this article you will export data from SQL Server to IBM Cloud SQL Query.

Add Source and Destination Components

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

Create a New Connection Manager for IBM Cloud SQL Query

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 IBMCloud Connection Manager in the menu.
  3. Configure the connection properties. A typical connection requires:
    • Api Key
    • Instance CRN
    • Region
    • Schema
    • OAuth Client Id
    • OAuth Client Secret

    IBM Cloud uses the OAuth and HMAC authentication standards. See the "Getting Started" chapter of the help documentation for a guide to using OAuth.

Configure the IBM Cloud SQL Query Destination

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

  1. Double-click the IBM Cloud SQL Query 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 Jobs 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.
