Import OData Data into SQL Server using SSIS

Easily back up OData services to SQL Server using the SSIS components for OData.

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 OData inside of a SQL Server SSIS workflow to transfer OData services into a Microsoft SQL Server database.

Add the Components

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

Create a New Connection Manager

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

    The User and Password properties, under the Authentication section, must be set to valid OData user credentials. In addition, you will need to specify a URL to a valid OData server organization root or OData services file.

Configure the OData Source

Follow the steps below to specify the query to be used to extract OData services.

  1. Double-click the OData 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 Orders.Freight, Customers.ContactName FROM Customers INNER JOIN Orders ON Customers.CustomerId=Orders.CustomerId
  4. Close the OData 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 OData services 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 OData services.
