DigitalOcean SSIS Components

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

Use the DigitalOcean Data Flow Components to synchronize with Droplets, Images, Volumes, etc. Perfect for data synchronization, local back-ups, workflow automation, and more!

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

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

Add the Components

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

Create a New Connection Manager

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

    DigitalOcean uses OAuth 2.0 authentication. To authenticate using OAuth, you can use the embedded credentials or register an app with DigitalOcean.

    See the Getting Started guide in the CData driver documentation for more information.

Configure the DigitalOcean Source

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

  1. Double-click the DigitalOcean 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, Name FROM Droplets
  4. Close the DigitalOcean 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 DigitalOcean 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 DigitalOcean data.
