SQL SERVER – Running SSIS Package in Scheduled Job

I previously wrote article SQL SERVER – Import CSV File into Database Table Using SSIS. I was asked following question by reader that how to run the same SSIS package from command prompt. In response to the same I have written article SQL SERVER – Running SSIS Package From Command Line. Within few minutes of the blog post, I received email from another blog reader asking if this can be scheduled in SQL Server Agent Job.

Absolutely, SSIS package can be scheduled in SQL Agent Jobs. Here is quick note on how one can do the same.

First you can create new job from SQL Server Agent Menu.

Create New Step.

SQL SERVER - Running SSIS Package in Scheduled Job packagerun2

Select Type as SQL Server Integration Services Packages. Select Package Source as file system and give package path.

Now click on OK, which will bring you at following screen.

SQL SERVER - Running SSIS Package in Scheduled Job packagerun4

On next screen you can select schedule and configure desired schedule.

You can notice this is very easy process. Let me know if you have any further questions.

  • Hello Pinal:
    I didn’t find either my question or answers in this thread, so here it goes:
    Would it be possible create a job to send a .csv file (and I’ve done this first part several times) in a zip file and password protected.
    Thanks

    Hi,
    My env is like, i am retrieving files from SFTP location(csv files) & mapping is done from my end.I execute it from my system works fine. Now if i want to deploy pkg on Sql server box for scheduling through Sql server Job agent, do those files also need to reside on sql server ?or just giving access to filepath mentioned in flat source conn manager to userid which runs job agent will suffice?

    Regards,
    Chaitanya

    • Hi Chaitanya,

      Have you created a variable for holding the path of SFTP files…? My suggestion would be to crate a variable for this and use it in your configuration file.
      Now no matter where your files are SSIS will automatically pick the path from variable through Config file and SQL Server agent Job will execute the SSIS.

        Hi Deepak,
        Our AI team does this job for me(downloading files from SFTP to shared location). I havent taken any variable to hold path nor prepared config file. Just mentioned path in flat file conn manager. Will this siffice requirement? What all access related things i should consider?

      • Hi Chaitanya,

        Yes to store the values in connection manager will also work and I believe it will suffice requirement.
        But again I will suggest to use config file rather then to hard-code values in SSIS itself. This will help you in future to change SFTP location easily without deploy SSIS package.

    Hi,

    Can we directly read a csv file from SFTP location without downloading to local system from SSIS? I can use FTP task component but it will download files from FTP location. My requirement is to read files from SFTP location without downloadinng them elsewhere due to confidentiality/misuse of data.

    Regards,

      Anybody got this scenario before?

      Reply
      • Hi Chaitanya,

        While working with files on SFTP you would have to download them. For the sake of confidentiality/misuse of data you can tell to your state side partners to provide files encrypted mode (eg. pgp encryption) and once you download the files to your local server decrypt them and after process delete the files.

    Hi , Sorry to bother you again. I am facing issue with data. I have 3 columns in csv file. Its text qualifier is “. column delimeter is comma(,). Now i have some extra comma in data like “column1”,”column2, “,”column3” . When i load data with these setting column 2 doesnt get loaded properly. Any setting i am missing here?

    Regards,

    Chaitanya

    • Hi Chataniya,

      The data “column1″,”column2,”,”column3″ will store in database like
      Column1 Column2, Column3
      That means SSIS will store “Column2,” (Comma in last) instead of “Column2”. I believe there is no direct way to handle this only in Flat File connection Manager.
      You need to use Derived Column Transformation and use Replace or Substring function in expression to remove extra comma (,) after Column2, to make it Column2.

    Hi Deepak,
    Thanks for reply. What happens now is column1 is stored properly. In column2 first part value i.e before comma value is stored and next part is stored in 3rd column thus each value pushing one column fwd. Is there any ways?

    • Hi Saravanan,

      There may be one of the below reason of this error:
      1. The file you are using for export is either open or used by someone else or
      2. SQL Server Agent account do not have sufficient privileges to export the data.

      for the resolution of this problem you may try:
      1. Try to change path of export file (eg. change it to C: drive to D: drive)
      2. Use Proxy account for SQL Server agent.

    Hi ,

    I have used data flowtask inside Foreach file enumerator. & due to deployement i have enabled config file. So do i need to change connection string of foreach container as well as conn string of source file components? or just changing conn string of foreach comp is fine? i need to migrate to QAfrom Dev.

    Thanks..

      HI Tina,
      I am not clear @ requirement. U want to load data on every first day of month? Can u specify more clearly what ur doing & where ur stuck?

      Reply
      • firstly thanks for responding..
        I have some data stored in a db and they change every day.
        I want to be able to see all the changes from the day i add the data but only in FIRST DAY OF EVERY MONTH.

        for example i add data at 2/3/2013 then i make changes at 4/3/2013, then i make changes again at 7/3/20133, then i make changes again at 8/3/20133 and so on …….
        so i want to see at 1/4/2013 (or 1/5/2013 or 1/6/2013) all the previous changes.

        I hope its better.
        In any case thanks a lot!!!!

    Hi,
    I have developed pkg using ssis 2008. I have used config file. At last step i have used file sys task to move files from one loc to another. But pkf fails at that step. saying you do not have access to path.
    I have verified that user name can create folder in destination path so i have right. what could be the checklist?

  • I have a question. I have an ssis package that I am trying to schedule. I have never worked with SSIS before – this is my first time. Each task is a stored proc and I have a rolling 12 month date range for the parameters. Until now I have just opened the package and changed the date for the parameters. If I schedule this package to run monthly – whats the best way to do the stored proc parameters? Should I edit each stored procs date range parameter to run the 12 months using getdate () or is there a better solution?

  • How do we schedule a job to run on a quarterly basis?
    I tried scheduling the job to run on the first weekday of every 3 months once and when i create the job on the Jan 1st of a year. It all works fine. But when i create the same job in any other months, it runs the job the next month from the date in which it has been created. Looks like it is not considering the start date which is given as Jan 1st. Can you please help me sort out this issue?

  • Hi,

    Does this SQL Server Agent requires additional privileges apart from having a simple database user account? This is my first SSIS project to take up.

  • Create a SQL job on test environment which will email the daily and detailed health status report for specific SQL server with parameters like drives, DB, jobs, space, files etc..(reusable script needed so can be used in multiple servers)—

    SQL server with parameters like drives, DB, jobs, space, files those parameters not check for one by one it will be automatically generated to email

    please understand my problem

  • HI,
    We have developed ssis package that downloads files in xml format from ftp and than process and insert in respective tables. We have a requirement to insert only unique and recent most records so we used lookup to perform the comparison. We are encountering a problem that it is too mush slow while scheduled via SQL Agent job, and works okay if we run it manually.
    Thanks

  • Hi Pinal, i have built 3 SSIS packages for 3 different files.those packages are scheduled for 3 runs like D,E and F. for each run these 3 packages will be running.logic of these packages are , this will search for the files in a shared folder ,if the file is there, it will go to next level to process the files if not found then it will throw an email alert.

    Now there might be some delay some times at source end to place the files in shared folder how ever our packages should immediately trigger soon it find the files. after D,E and F the package should not any more’

    How can we achieve this, i m not getting how to schedule the job so that it will cover the above the scenario

    initially i had scheduled it every 15 mins but after F( final run) also the package used to run and throw an email for every 15 mins which was not a good way

    Please help me out
