Export Data from SQL Server to Salesforce Pardot through SSIS

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

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

Add Source and Destination Components

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

Create a New Connection Manager for Salesforce Pardot

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.

  3. Configure the connection properties.

    Salesforce Pardot supports connecting through API Version, Username, Password and User Key.

    • ApiVersion: The Salesforce Pardot API version which the provided account can access. Defaults to 4.
    • User: The Username of the Salesforce Pardot account.

    The User Key of the current account may be accessed by going to Settings -> My Profile, under the API User Key row.

Configure the Salesforce Pardot Destination

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

  1. Double-click the Salesforce Pardot destination to open the destination component editor.
  2. In the Connection Managers tab, select the connection manager previously created.
