Export Data from SQL Server to Azure Table through SSIS

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

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

Add Source and Destination Components

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

Create a New Connection Manager for Azure Table

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 AzureTables Connection Manager in the menu.
  3. Configure the connection properties.

    Specify your AccessKey and your Account to connect. Set the Account property to the Storage Account Name and set AccessKey to one of the Access Keys. Either the Primary or Secondary Access Keys can be used. To obtain these values, navigate to the Storage Accounts blade in the Azure portal. You can obtain the access key by selecting your account and clicking Access Keys in the Settings section.

Configure the Azure Table Destination

In the destination component Connection Manager, define mappings from the SQL Server source table into the Azure Table destination table and the action you want to perform on the Azure Table data. In this article, you will insert NorthwindProducts entities to Azure Table.

  1. Double-click the Azure Table destination to open the destination component editor.
  2. In the Connection Managers tab, select the connection manager previously created.
  3. In the Use a Table, menu, select NorthwindProducts. In the Action menu, select Insert.
  4. 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.
