This sample shows how to both create and reference project parameters using Biml. Note that if you are using BIDSHelper, you will still need to specify PackageProject and Parameter tags even if project parameters are already created in your SSIS params file. This is required so that the Biml compiler can properly reference and type-check the parameters.
Does adding the project package parameters to the BIML code cause BIDS to create the Project parameters? It appears to create the references in the package but it seems like you will have to create the actual parameters manually.
The short answer is that yes, they must be created manually in BIDSHelper, unfortunately. Here is a thread on the BIDSHelper discussion board where this is dicussed in some detail: https://bidshelper.codeplex.com/discussions/447353
Hi Scott (or anybody else that can help!) my question is along simular lines for Project Connection Managers which is part of the
. I have defined them within this node, however, how do I reference them further down in the project (ie as a connection for an executeSQL task)?
These are connections that already exist within the Project
Many thanks in advance
The missing word is PackageProject - Don't know why it dissapeared!
This doesn't work at all unfortunately in the new 1.7.0 beta version. It seems that 'PackageProjects' is removed, but referencing a Project parameter fails because BIML checks for the definition, and you now didn't specify it within the BIML. Renders BIMLscript completely useless for SQL 2012 as we use project params in all our packages.
StephenL and DSmulders, PackageProject now lives under a collection called Projects. This enables us to support many additional types of projects (e.g. CubeProject, TabularProject, etc.) The sample has been edited to reflect this.
I would like to reference a project parameter as the connection string for a connection. Because I want to create a project connection and to parameterize it's connection string with a project parameter. Is this posible? I was thinking at something like this:
I couldn't post the code example. Check this snippet on this link: http://www.tiikoni.com/tis/view/?id=98faaa5
I am using Biml script to make a SSIS automation for ODS sync packages. I have made everything dynamic to pick up based on table names coming in and stuck at the last step where i am using OLEDB command to merge each row by row data by passing each row value as parameter and # of columns can changed based on each table so want to make that as a dynamic statement so that it can generate paramters and pass those in merge stored procedure. sending here the sample to understand.
