Azure DevOps SSIS Components

Powerful SSIS Source & Destination Components that allows you to easily connect SQL Server with Azure DevOps through SSIS Workflows.

Use the Azure DevOps Data Flow Components to synchronize with Azure DevOps Accounts, Approvals, Builds, Tests, and more. Perfect for data synchronization, local back-ups, workflow automation, and more!

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

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

Add Source and Destination Components

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

Create a New Connection Manager for Azure DevOps

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 AzureDevOps Connection Manager in the menu.
  3. Configure the connection properties. You can connect to your Azure DevOps account by providing the Organization and PersonalAccessToken.

    Obtaining a Personal Access Token

    A PersonalAccessToken is necessary for account authentication.

    To generate one, log in to your Azure DevOps Organization account and navigate to Profile -> Personal Access Tokens -> New Token. The generated token will be displayed.

    If you wish to authenticate to Azure DevOps using OAuth refer to the online Help documentation for an authentication guide.

Configure the Azure DevOps Destination

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

  1. Double-click the Azure DevOps 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 Builds. 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.
