How to Import MailChimp Data into SQL Server using SSIS

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

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

Add the Components

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

Create a New Connection Manager

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

    You can set the APIKey to the key you generate in your account settings, or, instead of providing your APIKey, you can use the OAuth standard to authenticate the application. OAuth can be used to enable other users to access their own data. To authenticate using OAuth, you will need to obtain the OAuthClientId, OAuthClientSecret, and CallbackURL by registering an app with MailChimp.

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

Configure the MailChimp Source

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

  1. Double-click the MailChimp 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 Name, Stats_AvgSubRate FROM Lists
  4. Close the MailChimp 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 MailChimp 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 MailChimp data.
