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

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

Add the Components

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

Create a New Connection Manager

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

    All tables require authentication. You must use OAuth to authenticate with Twitter. OAuth requires the authenticating user to interact with Twitter using the browser. For more information, refer to the OAuth section in the Help documentation.

Configure the Twitter Ads Source

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

  1. Double-click the Twitter Ads 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 EntityId, Entity FROM AdStats WHERE Entity = 'ORGANIC_TWEET'
  4. Close the Twitter Ads 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 Twitter Ads 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 Twitter Ads data.
