SSIS JSON Connector

JSON Connector can be used to extract and output JSON data stored in local JSON files, JSON data coming from REST API web service calls (Web URL) or direct JSON String (variables or DB columns). JSON Connector also supports JSONPath to filter data from nested array/sub-documents. This Connector is optimized to work with very large files.
You can use this connector to integrate REST API data inside SSIS and SQL Server. Let's take a look at the steps below to see how exactly to accomplish that.

Step-By-Step: How to read from JSON in SSIS (Export data)

In this section we will learn how to configure and use JSON Connector in the API Source to extract data from the JSON.

  1. Prerequisite: you must have downloaded and installed SSIS PowerPack. Check Getting started section for more information.

  2. Begin with opening Visual Studio and creating new SSIS package Project.

  3. Now, Drag and Drop SSIS Data Flow Task from SSIS Toolbox.
    SSIS Data Flow Task - Drag and Drop

  4. Double click on the Data Flow Task to see Data Flow designer.

  5. From the SSIS toolbox drag and drop JSON Source on the dataflow designer surface

  6. Double click on JSON Source component to configure it.

  7. From the Access Mode dropdown select [File path or web Url] and paste the following Url for this example.
    NOTE: Here for demo, I'm using odata API, but you need to refer your own API documentation and based on that you need to use your own API URL and need to configure connection based on API Authentication type.

  8. Now enter JSONPath expression in JSONPath textbox to extract only specific part of JSON file as below ($.value[*] will get content of value attribute from JSON document. Value attribute is array of JSON documents so we have to use [*] to indicate we want all records of that array)
    NOTE: Here, I'm using my desired filter, but you need to select your desired filter based on your requirement.
    Click on Preview button to view the parsed JSON string response data and click OK.
