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

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

Add Source and Destination Components

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

Create a New Connection Manager for eBay

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

    If you will be accessing your own account, you can generate an OAuthAccessToken from your developer account dashboard. You can also allow other users to securely access their own accounts.

    Both of these methods require you to create an application key set to obtain values for the following connection properties: AppId, CertId, DevId, and SiteId.

    The user consent flow additionally requires the RuName and CallbackURL.

    See the "Getting Started" chapter in the help documentation for a guide to using OAuth.

Configure the eBay Destination

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

  1. Double-click the eBay 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 ItemListing. 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.
