Import Azure Data Catalog Data into SQL Server using SSIS

Easily back up Azure Data Catalog data to SQL Server using the SSIS components for Azure Data Catalog.

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 Azure Data Catalog inside of a SQL Server SSIS workflow to transfer Azure Data Catalog data into a Microsoft SQL Server database.

Add the Components

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

Create a New Connection Manager

Follow the steps below to save Azure Data Catalog 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 AzureDataCatalog. The CData Azure Data Catalog Connection Manager is displayed.
  3. Configure 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 Source

Follow the steps below to specify the query to be used to extract Azure Data Catalog data.

  1. Double-click the Azure Data Catalog 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. For example: SELECT DslAddressDatabase, Type FROM Tables WHERE Name = 'FactProductInventory'
  4. Close the Azure Data Catalog 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 Azure Data Catalog 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 Azure Data Catalog data.
