Export Data from SQL Server to PostgreSQL through SSIS

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

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

Add Source and Destination Components

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

Create a New Connection Manager for PostgreSQL

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

    To connect to PostgreSQL, set the Server, Port (the default port is 5432), and Database connection properties and set the User and Password you wish to use to authenticate to the server. If the Database property is not specified, the data provider connects to the user's default database.

Configure the PostgreSQL Destination

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

  1. Double-click the PostgreSQL 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.
