Control Flow Tab

Use the Control Flow tab of SSIS Designer to build the control flow in a Integration Services package.

Create the control flow by dragging graphical objects that represent SSIS tasks and containers from the Toolbox to the design surface of the Control Flow tab, and then connecting the objects by dragging the connector on an object to another object. Each connecting line represents a precedence constraint that specifies the order in which the tasks and containers run

Additionally, you can use SSIS Designer to add the following functionality from the Control Flow tab:

  • Implement logging

  • Create package configurations

  • Sign the package with a certificate

  • Manage variables

  • Add annotations

  • Configure breakpoints

To add these functions to individual tasks or containers in SSIS Designer, right-click the object on the design surface, and then select the option.
