Export Data from SQL Server to Box through SSIS

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

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

Add Source and Destination Components

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

Create a New Connection Manager for Box

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

    Box uses the OAuth standard to authenticate. To authenticate to Box, you will need to obtain the OAuthClientId, OAuthClientSecret, and CallbackURL by registering an app. See the "Getting Started" chapter of the help documentation for a guide to using OAuth.

Configure the Box Destination

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

  1. Double-click the Box 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 Files. 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.
