Export Data from SQL Server to MySQL through SSIS

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

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

Add Source and Destination Components

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

Create a New Connection Manager for MySQL

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

    The Server and Port properties must be set to a MySQL server. If IntegratedSecurity is set to false, then User and Password must be set to valid user credentials. Optionally, Database can be set to connect to a specific database. If not set, tables from all databases will be returned.

Configure the MySQL Destination

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

  1. Double-click the MySQL 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 Orders. 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.
