How to Import Neo4J Data into SQL Server using SSIS

Easily back up Neo4J data to SQL Server using the SSIS components for Neo4J.

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 Neo4J inside of a SQL Server SSIS workflow to transfer Neo4J data into a Microsoft SQL Server database.

Add the Components

To get started, add a new Neo4J source and SQL Server ADO.NET destination to a new data flow task.

Create a New Connection Manager

Follow the steps below to save Neo4J 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 Neo4j. The CData Neo4J Connection Manager is displayed.
  3. Configure connection properties.

    To connect to Neo4j, set the following connection properties:

    • Server: The server hosting the Neo4j instance.
    • Port: The port on which the Neo4j service is running. The provider connects to port 7474 by default.
    • User: The username of the user using the Neo4j instance.
    • Password: The password of the user using the Neo4j instance.

Configure the Neo4J Source

Follow the steps below to specify the query to be used to extract Neo4J data.

  1. Double-click the Neo4J 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 CategoryId, CategoryName FROM ProductCategory WHERE CategoryOwner = 'CData Software'
  4. Close the Neo4J 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 Neo4J 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 Neo4J data.
