Import Bullhorn CRM Data into SQL Server using SSIS

Easily back up Bullhorn CRM data to SQL Server using the SSIS components for Bullhorn CRM.

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 Bullhorn CRM inside of a SQL Server SSIS workflow to transfer Bullhorn CRM data into a Microsoft SQL Server database.

Add the Components

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

Create a New Connection Manager

Follow the steps below to save Bullhorn CRM 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 BullhornCRM. The CData Bullhorn CRM Connection Manager is displayed.
  3. Configure connection properties.

    Begin by providing your Bullhorn CRM account credentials in the following:

    If you are uncertain about your data center code, codes like CLS2, CLS21, etc. are cluster IDs that are contained in a user's browser URL (address bar) once they are logged in.

    Example: https://cls21.bullhornstaffing.com/BullhornSTAFFING/MainFrame.jsp?#no-ba... indicates that the logged in user is on CLS21.

    Authenticating with OAuth

    Bullhorn CRM uses the OAuth 2.0 authentication standard. To authenticate using OAuth, create and configure a custom OAuth app. See the Help documentation for more information.

Configure the Bullhorn CRM Source

Follow the steps below to specify the query to be used to extract Bullhorn CRM data.

  1. Double-click the Bullhorn CRM 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 Id, CandidateName FROM Candidate WHERE CandidateName = 'Jane Doe'
  4. Close the Bullhorn CRM 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 Bullhorn CRM 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 Bullhorn CRM data.
