Pinterest SSIS Components

Powerful SSIS Source & Destination Components that allows you to easily connect SQL Server with Pinterest through SSIS Workflows.

Use the Pinterest Data Flow Components to synchronize with Pinterest Boards, Followers, Pins, and more. Perfect for data synchronization, local back-ups, workflow automation, and more!



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

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

Add the Components

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

Create a New Connection Manager

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

    Pinterest authentication is based on the standard OAuth flow. To authenticate, you must initially create an app via the Pinterest developer platform where you can obtain an OAuthClientId, OAuthClientSecret, and CallbackURL.

    Set InitiateOAuth to GETANDREFRESH and set OAuthClientId, OAuthClientSecret, and CallbackURL based on the property values for the app you created.

    See the Help documentation for other OAuth authentication flows.

Configure the Pinterest Source

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

  1. Double-click the Pinterest 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 Id, Username FROM Users WHERE FirstName = 'Jane'
  4. Close the Pinterest 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 Pinterest 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 Pinterest data.
