CockroachDB SSIS Components

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

Use the CockroachDB Data Flow Components to synchronize with CockroachDB NewSQLDB, and more. Perfect for data synchronization, local back-ups, workflow automation, and more!



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

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

Add Source and Destination Components

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

Create a New Connection Manager for CockroachDB

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

    Set the following to connect to CockroachDB.

    • Server: The host name or IP address of the server.
    • Port: The port number of the CockroachDB server. If not specified, the default port is 26257.
    • Database: The name of the Cockroach database. If not specified, you connect to the user's default database.
    • User: The Cockroach DB user account used to authenticate.
    • Password: The password used to authenticate the user.

Configure the CockroachDB Destination

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

  1. Double-click the CockroachDB 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 Orders. 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.
