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

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

Add Source and Destination Components

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

Create a New Connection Manager for SharePoint

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

    Set the URL property to the base SharePoint site or to a sub-site. This allows you to query any lists and other SharePoint entities defined for the site or sub-site.

    The User and Password properties, under the Authentication section, must be set to valid SharePoint user credentials when using SharePoint On-Premise.

    If you are connecting to SharePoint Online, set the SharePointEdition to SHAREPOINTONLINE along with the User and Password connection string properties. For more details on connecting to SharePoint Online, see the "Getting Started" chapter of the help documentation

Configure the SharePoint Destination

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

  1. Double-click the SharePoint 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 MyCustomList. 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.
