Import Bing Search Data into SQL Server using SSIS

Easily back up Bing Search results to SQL Server using the SSIS components for Bing Search.

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 Bing Search inside of a SQL Server SSIS workflow to transfer Bing Search results into a Microsoft SQL Server database.

Add the Components

To get started, add a new Bing Search source and SQL Server ADO.NET destination to a new data flow task.

Create a New Connection Manager

Follow the steps below to save Bing Search 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 Bing. The CData Bing Search Connection Manager is displayed.
  3. Configure connection properties.

    To connect to Bing, set the ApiKey connection property. To obtain the API key, sign into Microsoft Cognitive Services and register for the Bing Search APIs.

    Two API keys are then generated; select either one.

    When querying tables, the SearchTerms parameter must be supplied in the WHERE clause.

Configure the Bing Search Source

Follow the steps below to specify the query to be used to extract Bing Search results.

  1. Double-click the Bing Search 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 Title, ViewCount FROM VideoSearch WHERE SearchTerms = 'WayneTech'
  4. Close the Bing Search 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 Bing Search results 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 Bing Search results.
