Integration Services Deployment Wizard

The Integration Services Deployment Wizard supports two deployment models:

  • Project deployment model
  • Package deployment model

The Project Deployment model allows you to deploy a SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) project as a single unit to the SSIS Catalog.

The Package Deployment model allows you to deploy packages that you have updated to the SSIS Catalog without having to deploy the whole project.

NOTE: The Wizard default deployment is the Project Deployment model.

Launch the wizard

Launch the wizard by either:

  • Typing "SQL Server Deployment Wizard" in Windows Search


  • Search for the executable file ISDeploymentWizard.exe under the SQL Server installation folder; for example: “C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server\130\DTS\Binn”.

NOTE: If you see the Introduction page, click Next to switch to the Select Source page.

The settings on this page are different for each deployment model. Follow steps in the Project Deployment Model section or Package Deployment Model section based on the model you selected in this page.

Now, you should see all the packages in the specified folder in the list box. By default, all the packages are selected. Click the checkbox in the first column to choose which packages you want to be deployed to server.

Refer to the Status and Message columns to verify the status of package. If the status is set to Ready or Warning, the deployment wizard would not block the deployment process. Whereas, if the status is set to Error, the wizard would not proceed further to deploy selected packages. To view the detailed Warning/Error messages, click the link in the Message column.

If the sensitive data or package data are encrypted with a password, type the password in the Password column and click the Refresh button to verify whether the password is accepted. If the password is correct, the status would change to Ready and the warning message will disappear. If there are multiple packages with the same password, select the packages with the same encryption password, type the password in the Password textbox and click Apply button. The password would be applied to the selected packages.

If the status of all the selected packages is not set to Error, the Next button will be enabled so that you can continue with the package deployment process.
