Import DataRobot Data into SQL Server using SSIS

Easily back up DataRobot data to SQL Server using the SSIS components for Salesforce.

Using SQL Server as a backup for critical business data provides an essential safety net against loss. Backing up data to SQL Server enables business users to more easily connect that data with features like reporting, analytics, and more.

This example demonstrates how to use the CData SSIS Tasks for DataRobot inside of a SQL Server SSIS workflow to transfer DataRobot data into a Microsoft SQL Server database.

Add the Components

To get started, add a new DataRobot source and SQL Server ADO.NET destination to a new data flow task.

Create a New Connection Manager

Follow the steps below to save DataRobot connection properties in a connection manager.

  1. In the Connection Manager window, right-click and then click New Connection. The Add SSIS Connection Manager dialog is displayed.
  2. In the Connection Manager type menu, select DataRobot. The CData DataRobot Connection Manager is displayed.
  3. Configure connection properties. A typical connection requires:
    • PredictionInstance
    • DataFile
    • DataRobotKey
    • User
    • Password

    To connect to DataRobot, the following connection properties are required: User, Password, and PredictionInstance. DataRobotKey may also be required depending on your type of DataRobot predictions instance. If using the Predictions API, DataFile is required. The CSV DataFile should include a header row as the first row of the datafile. APIKey is not required, but can be supplied. If not supplied, the driver will handle obtaining an APIKey.

    User, DataRobotKey, and APIKey are the credentials for the DataRobot account.

    ProjectID, DataFile, and ModelId are the parameters for the project, dataset, and model type.

Configure the DataRobot Source

Follow the steps below to specify the query to be used to extract DataRobot data.

  1. Double-click the DataRobot source to open the source component editor.
  2. In the Connection Manager menu, select the connection manager previously created.
  3. Specify the query to use for the data extraction. This article retrieves all records from the Predictions table with the following query: SELECT * FROM Predictions
  4. Close the DataRobot Source control and connect it to the ADO.NET Destination.

Configure the SQL Server Destination

Follow the steps below to specify the SQL server table to load the DataRobot data into.

  1. Open the ADO.NET Destination and add a New Connection. Enter your server and database information here.
  2. In the Data access mode menu, select "table or view".
  3. In the Table Or View menu, select the table or view to populate.
  4. Configure any properties you wish to on the Mappings screen.

Run the Project

You can now run the project. After the SSIS Task has finished executing, your database will be populated with DataRobot data.
