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 back up CockroachDB data to SQL Server using the SSIS components for CockroachDB.

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

Add the Components

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

Create a New Connection Manager

Follow the steps below to save CockroachDB 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 CockroachDB. The CData CockroachDB Connection Manager is displayed.
  3. Configure 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 Source

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

  1. Double-click the CockroachDB 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 ShipName, ShipCity FROM Orders WHERE ShipCountry = 'USA'
  4. Close the CockroachDB 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 CockroachDB 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 CockroachDB data.
