Advanced SSIS File System Task - Copy, Move, Rename, Delete

Advanced SSIS File System Task

Advanced SSIS File System Task is designed to full fill most common file system related operations in SSIS. Native SSIS File System Task provided by Microsoft lakes many useful features (e.g. copy/move/delete/rename multiple files, search/replace etc).

Features

  • File operations for single or multiple files using wildcard(e.g. copy, move, rename, delete, write to file, get properties)
  • Folder operations such as delete folder and create folder
  • Support for bulk rename (e.g. by specifying {%name%}.{%ext%}.old as new name will rename all selected files to *.old)
  • Search and Replace in files (Regular expression search supported)
  • Change file encoding
  • Get file properties as data table which you can loop easily (Using ForEach Loop – ADO Enumerator)
  • Option to continue on error (e.g. Copy file only when source file found)
  • Auto create missing target directory
  • Use placeholders anywhere in the path, makes it easy to timestamp folders or files (e.g. c:\Archive\{{System::StartTime,yyyMMdd}})
  • Regular Expression based Include Pattern (e.g. ^(file\d\d).(\w+)$ will include file01.exe,file22.csv …)
  • Regular Expression based Exclude Pattern (e.g. (.exe|.msi) will exclude files with extension exe or msi)
  • Sort based on specific property (e.g. Order Size DESC – extract top 10 files by size)
  • Advanced SQL like filter support (e.g. Size> 1024 AND AgeInDays > 10 AND Extension IN(‘.txt’,’.csv’) will include file greater than 1024 bytes and extension is txt or csv)
  • Support for Regular Expression based Include Pattern (e.g. ^(Customer\d\d).(\w+)$ )
  • Support for SQL Server 2019, 2017, 2016, 2014, 2012 (32/64 bit) and now Azure Data Factory
