Configuration.ConfigurationType Configuration.ConfigurationType Configuration.ConfigurationType Property


Gets or sets a value from the DTSConfigurationType that describes what kind of file the configuration information is stored in.

 property Microsoft::SqlServer::Dts::Runtime::DTSConfigurationType ConfigurationType { Microsoft::SqlServer::Dts::Runtime::DTSConfigurationType get(); void set(Microsoft::SqlServer::Dts::Runtime::DTSConfigurationType value); };
public Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime.DTSConfigurationType ConfigurationType { get; set; }
Public Property ConfigurationType As DTSConfigurationType

Property Value

A DTSConfigurationType enumeration whose value describes where the configuration information is stored.


The following code example creates a package, enables configurations, and enables the export of the configuration file. It adds a new Configuration to the package Configurations collection, and sets several properties on the configuration. After saving and reloading the package, the configuration properties are displayed.

Sample Output:

The value of variable var = 1

ConfigurationString is conf.xml

ConfigurationType is ConfigFile

CreationName is

Description is My configuration description

Assigned ID is {9CF65E37-0833-44CD-A99D-EBFE38FAB31B}

Name is {9CF65E37-0833-44CD-A99D-EBFE38FAB31B}

Package Path is \Package.Variables[::var]


There are many ways to store configuration information. The available options are listed in the DTSConfigurationType enumeration. For more information about configuration files for packages, see Create Package Configurations.
