GitHub SSIS Components

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

Use the GitHub Data Flow Components to synchronize with GitHub Repositories, Projects, Labels, Issues, and more. Perfect for data synchronization, local back-ups, workflow automation, and more!



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

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

Add Source and Destination Components

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

Create a New Connection Manager for GitHub

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

    GitHub uses the OAuth 2 authentication standard. To authenticate using OAuth, you will need to create an app to obtain the OAuthClientId, OAuthClientSecret, and CallbackURL connection properties. See the Getting Started chapter of the CData help documentation for an authentication guide.

Configure the GitHub Destination

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

  1. Double-click the GitHub 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 Users. 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.
