Export Data from SQL Server to Google Analytics through SSIS

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

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

Add Source and Destination Components

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

Create a New Connection Manager for Google Analytics

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 GoogleAnalytics Connection Manager in the menu.
  3. Configure the connection properties. A typical connection requires:
    • Profile

    Google uses the OAuth authentication standard. To access Google APIs on behalf on individual users, you can use the embedded credentials or you can register your own OAuth app.

    OAuth also enables you to use a service account to connect on behalf of users in a Google Apps domain. To authenticate with a service account, you will need to register an application to obtain the OAuth JWT values.

    In addition to the OAuth values, set Profile to the profile you want to connect to. This can be set to either the Id or website URL for the Profile. If not specified, the first Profile returned will be used.

Configure the Google Analytics Destination

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

  1. Double-click the Google Analytics 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 Traffic 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.
