Export Data from SQL Server to Azure Data Catalog through SSIS

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

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

Add Source and Destination Components

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

Create a New Connection Manager for Azure Data Catalog

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

    You can optionally set the following to read the different catalog data returned from Azure Data Catalog.

      CatalogName: Set this to the CatalogName associated with your Azure Data Catalog. To get your Catalog name, navigate to your Azure Portal home page > Data Catalog > Catalog Name

    Connect Using OAuth Authentication

    You must use OAuth to authenticate with Azure Data Catalog. OAuth requires the authenticating user to interact with Azure Data Catalog using the browser. For more information, refer to the OAuth section in the help documentation.

Configure the Azure Data Catalog Destination

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

  1. Double-click the Azure Data Catalog 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 Tables. 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.
