Export Data from SQL Server to Elasticsearch through SSIS

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

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

Add Source and Destination Components

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

Create a New Connection Manager for Elasticsearch

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 Elasticsearch Connection Manager in the menu.
  3. Configure the connection properties. A typical connection requires:
    • Server
    • Port
    • User
    • Password

    Set the Server and Port connection properties to connect. To authenticate, set the User and Password properties, PKI (public key infrastructure) properties, or both. To use PKI, set the SSLClientCert, SSLClientCertType, SSLClientCertSubject, and SSLClientCertPassword properties.

    The data provider uses X-Pack Security for TLS/SSL and authentication. To connect over TLS/SSL, prefix the Server value with 'https://'. Note: TLS/SSL and client authentication must be enabled on X-Pack to use PKI.

    Once the data provider is connected, X-Pack will then perform user authentication and grant role permissions based on the realms you have configured.

Configure the Elasticsearch Destination

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

  1. Double-click the Elasticsearch 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 Orders 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.
