FTP/SFTP XML File Connector for SSIS

FTP/SFTP XML File Connector can be used to read XML Files stored on FTP Sites (Classic FTP, SFTP or FTPS). Using this you can easily read FTP/SFTP XML File data. It's supports latest security standards, and optimized for large data files. It also supports reading compressed files (e.g. GZip /Zip).
You can use this connector to integrate FTP/SFTP XML File Connector data inside SSIS and SQL Server. Let's take a look at the steps below to see how exactly to accomplish that.

Prerequisites

Before we perform steps listed in this article, you will need to make sure following prerequisites are met:
  1. SSIS designer installed. Sometimes it is referred as BIDS or SSDT (download it from Microsoft site).
  2. Basic knowledge of SSIS package development using Microsoft SQL Server Integration Services.
  3. Make sure ZappySys SSIS PowerPack is downloaded and installed (download it). Check Getting started section for more information.
  4. Optional (If you want to Deploy and Schedule ) - Deploy and Schedule SSIS Packages

How to read data from FTP/SFTP XML File in SSIS using Secure FTP XML File Source (Export data)

In this section we will learn how to configure and use FTP/SFTP XML File Connector in the API Source to extract data from the FTP/SFTP XML File using Secure FTP Source for XML Files.

  1. Begin with opening Visual Studio and Create a New Project.

  2. Select Integration Service Project and in new project window set the appropriate name and location for project. And click OK.

  3. In the the new SSIS project screen you will find the following:

    1. SSIS ToolBox on left side bar
    2. Solution Explorer and Property Window on right bar
    3. Control flow, data flow, event Handlers, Package Explorer in tab windows
    4. Connection Manager Window in the bottom
    SSIS Project Screen
    Note: If you don't see ZappySys SSIS PowerPack Task or Components in SSIS Toolbox, please refer to this help link.

  4. Now, Drag and Drop SSIS Data Flow Task from SSIS Toolbox. Double click on the Data Flow Task to see Data Flow designer.
    SSIS Data Flow Task - Drag and Drop

  5. From the SSIS toolbox drag and drop Secure FTP XML File Source on the dataflow designer surface
    SSIS Secure FTP XML File Source - Drag and Drop

  6. Double click on Secure FTP XML File Source component to configure it.

  7. Create and configure a connection for the Secure FTP storage account.

    Create Secure FTP Storage Connection
  8. You can use select your desired single file by clicking [...] path button.

    mybucket/dbo.tblNames.xml
    dbo.tblNames.xml
    Read Secure FTP XML File data


    ----------OR----------

    You can also read the multiple files stored in Secure FTP Storage using wildcard pattern supported e.g. dbo.tblNames*.xml.

    Note: If you want to operation with multiple files then use wild card pattern as below 
    (when you use wild card pattern in source path then system will treat target path as folder regardless you end with slash)
    
    mybucket/dbo.tblNames.xml (will read only single .XML file)
    mybucket/dbo.tbl*.xml (all files starting with file name)
    mybucket/*.xml (all files with .xml Extension and located under folder subfolder)
    

    mybucket/dbo.tblNames*.xml
    Use wildcard pattern .* to read multiple Secure FTP Files data


    ----------OR----------

    You can also read the zip and gzip compressed files also without extracting it in using Secure FTP XML File Source.

  9. Now select/enter Path expression in Path textbox to extract only specific part of XML string as below ($.value[*] will get content of value attribute from XML document. Value attribute is array of XML documents so we have to use [*] to indicate we want all records of that array)

    NOTE: Here, We are using our desired filter, but you need to select your desired filter based on your requirement.
    Click on Preview button to view the parsed XML string response data and click OK.

  10. That's it; we are done. In a few clicks we configured the to Read the FTP/SFTP XML File data using ZappySys FTP/SFTP XML File Connector

Load FTP/SFTP XML File data in SQL Server using Upsert Destination (Insert or Update)

Once you read data from the desired source, now let's see how to Load FTP/SFTP XML File data in SQL Server using Upsert Destination. Upsert Destination can Merge/Synchronize data from source to target for Microsoft SQL Server, PostgreSql and Redshift. It supports very fast Bulk Upsert (Update or Insert) operation along and Bulk delete.

  1. From the SSIS toolbox drag and drop Upsert Destination on the dataflow designer surface

  2. Connect our Source component to Upsert Destination

  3. Double click on Upsert Destination component to configure it.

  4. Select the desired Microsoft SQL Server/PostgreSql/Redshift Target Connection or click NEW to create new connection. Select Target Table or click NEW to create new table based on source columns.
    Configure SSIS Upsert Destination Connection - Loading data (REST / SOAP / JSON / XML /CSV) into SQL Server or other target using SSIS
    Configure SSIS Upsert Destination Connection - Loading data (REST / SOAP / JSON / XML /CSV) into SQL Server or other target using SSIS

  5. Set Action to Upsert => (insert if not matching in target else update). Select Target Connection and Target Table. Check on Insert and Update. Click on Map All to Mappings all columns and check on Only Primary Key columns.
    SSIS SQL Upsert option

  6. Click on OK to save Upsert Destination settings UI.

  7. That's it; we are done. Run the SSIS Package and it will read the data from the FTP/SFTP XML File and load the the data in the SQL Server/PostgreSql/Redshift.
