Export Data from SQL Server to Twilio through SSIS

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

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

Add Source and Destination Components

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

Create a New Connection Manager for Twilio

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

    Use the AccountSid and AuthToken connection properties to access data from your account. You obtain your live credentials on your Twilio account dashboard. Click Account -> Account Settings to obtain your test credentials.

Configure the Twilio Destination

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

  1. Double-click the Twilio 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 Calls. 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.
