Easily back up X-Cart data to SQL Server using the SSIS components for X-Cart.

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 X-Cart inside of a SQL Server SSIS workflow to transfer X-Cart data into a Microsoft SQL Server database.

Add the Components

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

Create a New Connection Manager

Follow the steps below to save X-Cart 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 XCart. The CData X-Cart Connection Manager is displayed.
  3. Configure connection properties.

    An API Key must be created for your XCart Installation. In order to obtain the API Key, you need to install and configure the REST API Module for your X-Cart installation.

    • Login to your X-Cart Installation. Click on My addons on the bottom of the left side-bar navigation panel.
    • Search for REST API Module. Install the Module.
    • After the module has been installed, you need to set it up.
      • Go to the Settings section for the REST API Module.
      • On the settings page specify the API Key (only read)
    • Set the ApiKey and Url to the connection property to connect to data.

Configure the X-Cart Source

Follow the steps below to specify the query to be used to extract X-Cart data.

  1. Double-click the X-Cart 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 ProfileId, FirstName FROM PROFILES WHERE Language = 'en'
  4. Close the X-Cart 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 X-Cart 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 X-Cart data.
