Run an SSIS package with SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS)
Applies to: SQL Server (all supported versions) SSIS Integration Runtime in Azure Data Factory
This quickstart demonstrates how to use SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) to connect to the SSIS Catalog database, and then run an SSIS package stored in the SSIS Catalog from Object Explorer in SSMS.
SQL Server Management Studio is an integrated environment for managing any SQL infrastructure, from SQL Server to SQL Database. For more info about SSMS, see SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS).
Before you start, make sure you have the latest version of SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS). To download SSMS, see Download SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS).
An Azure SQL Database server listens on port 1433. If you're trying to connect to an Azure SQL Database server from within a corporate firewall, this port must be open in the corporate firewall for you to connect successfully.
You can use the information in this quickstart to run an SSIS package on the following platforms:
SQL Server on Windows.
Azure SQL Database. For more info about deploying and running packages in Azure, see Lift and shift SQL Server Integration Services workloads to the cloud.
You cannot use the information in this quickstart to run an SSIS package on Linux. For more info about running packages on Linux, see Extract, transform, and load data on Linux with SSIS.
For Azure SQL Database, get the connection info
To run the package on Azure SQL Database, get the connection information you need to connect to the SSIS Catalog database (SSISDB). You need the fully qualified server name and login information in the procedures that follow.
- Log in to the Azure portal.
- Select SQL Databases from the left-hand menu, and then select the SSISDB database on the SQL databases page.
- On the Overview page for your database, review the fully qualified server name. To see the Click to copy option, hover over the server name.
- If you forget your Azure SQL Database server login information, navigate to the SQL Database server page to view the server admin name. You can reset the password if necessary.
