Extracting SSIS Package information using T-SQL

Like This Blog 6 Jeff Jones

SQL Server Integration Services can store it packages in either the file system or the MSDB system database.  One of the advantages of storing a package in MSDB is that you can use T-SQL to read the package definition and generate reports on your SSIS package library.

Here are a couple of example queries to extract the package GUID for each package and to display the connection string for each OLEDB connection manager in a package.

Example 1: Package GUID display

 


USE MSDB
GO
WITH xmlPackages
-- Read sysssispackage and convert packagedata image column to XML datatype
AS
(SELECT [name]
, [Description]
, verbuild
, CAST(CAST(packagedata as VARBINARY(MAX)) AS XML) PackageXML
FROM dbo.sysssispackages)
,
Packages
-- Cross join each package row with itself to extract out the GUID then convert it to VARCHAR

AS
(SELECT [name]
, [Description]
, [verbuild]
, x.guid.value('text()[1]', 'varchar(4000)') PackageGUID
FROM xmlPackages
CROSS APPLY
PackageXML.nodes('declare namespace DTS="www.microsoft.com/SqlServer/Dts"; //DTS:Executable/DTS:Property[@DTS:Name="VersionGUID"]') AS x(guid)
)

SELECT *
FROM Packages

 

Example 2: Display Connections strings for each OLEDB Connection Manager
 

USE MSDB
GO
WITH xmlPackages
-- Read sysssispackages and convert packagedata image column to XML datatype
AS
(SELECT [name]
, [Description]
, verbuild
, CAST(CAST(packagedata as VARBINARY(MAX)) AS XML) PackageXML
FROM dbo.sysssispackages)
,
Packages
-- Cross join each package row with OLEDB connections found in the package and convert it to VARCHAR
AS
(SELECT [name]
, [Description]
, [verbuild]
, x.cn.value('text()[1]', 'varchar(4000)') Conn
FROM xmlPackages
CROSS APPLY
PackageXML.nodes('declare namespace DTS="www.microsoft.com/SqlServer/Dts"; //DTS:ConnectionManager[DTS:Property="OLEDB"]/DTS:ObjectData/DTS:ConnectionManager/DTS:Property [@DTS:Name="ConnectionString"]') AS x(cn)
)
SELECT [Name] PackageName
, [Description]
, [verbuild]
, Conn ConnectionString
FROM Packages
