Export Data from SQL Server to Google Analytics through SSIS

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

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

Add Source and Destination Components

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

Create a New Connection Manager for Google Analytics

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

    Google uses the OAuth authentication standard. To access Google APIs on behalf on individual users, you can use the embedded credentials or you can register your own OAuth app.

    OAuth also enables you to use a service account to connect on behalf of users in a Google Apps domain. To authenticate with a service account, you will need to register an application to obtain the OAuth JWT values.

    In addition to the OAuth values, set Profile to the profile you want to connect to. This can be set to either the Id or website URL for the Profile. If not specified, the first Profile returned will be used.

Configure the Google Analytics Destination

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

  1. Double-click the Google Analytics 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 Traffic. 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.
