Overview of this book

SQL Server Integration Services is a tool that facilitates data extraction, consolidation, and loading options (ETL), SQL Server coding enhancements, data warehousing, and customizations. With the help of the recipes in this book, you’ll gain complete hands-on experience of SSIS 2017 as well as the 2016 new features, design and development improvements including SCD, Tuning, and Customizations. At the start, you’ll learn to install and set up SSIS as well other SQL Server resources to make optimal use of this Business Intelligence tools. We’ll begin by taking you through the new features in SSIS 2016/2017 and implementing the necessary features to get a modern scalable ETL solution that fits the modern data warehouse. Through the course of chapters, you will learn how to design and build SSIS data warehouses packages using SQL Server Data Tools. Additionally, you’ll learn to develop SSIS packages designed to maintain a data warehouse using the Data Flow and other control flow tasks. You’ll also be demonstrated many recipes on cleansing data and how to get the end result after applying different transformations. Some real-world scenarios that you might face are also covered and how to handle various issues that you might face when designing your packages. At the end of this book, you’ll get to know all the key concepts to perform data integration and transformation. You’ll have explored on-premises Big Data integration processes to create a classic data warehouse, and will know how to extend the toolbox with custom tasks and transforms.

Using T-SQL to execute an SSIS package

In this recipe, you are going to perform all three steps of SSIS package execution by using three special stored procedures in the SSISDB database.

This procedure can be used only on packages deployed to the SSISDB Catalog.

How to do it...

  1. In SSMS, connect to the SSISDB database; that is, the user database hosting the SSISDB catalog. You can use the following command:


For your convenience, the T-SQL code needed for this chapter is provided in the Chapter06.sql script, located in the C:\SSIS2016Cookbook\Chapter06\Scripts folder.

  1. Use the following query to retrieve the identifier of the environment reference, and assign the value to a variable:
DECLARE @reference_id INT;
SET @reference_id = (
  SELECT environment_references.reference_id
  FROM catalog.folders
    INNER JOIN catalog.projects
    ON projects.folder_id = folders.folder_id
    INNER JOIN catalog.environment_references
    ON environment_references.project_id = projects.project_id...
