Does the Postgres Destination Support User Variables?

Post by sxwalsh55 » Thu 04 Aug 2016 20:36

I'm using the SSIS Postgres flow components, and I don't see anywhere that a user variable can be used in the source table field. This is useful to me because I'd like to be able to use a variable to control the target schema of the flow components of my package.

So far it looks like I need to open up every data flow and make all schema changes manually when switching back and forth between environments, which we control with schemas.

Sorry for the delay.

Please define your parameter (for example, with name=TODAY and expression=GETDATE() ) via SSIS > Variables menu of Visual Studio.

Devart PostgreSql Source: you can use newly created parameter in the query in the following way

Code: Select all

select * from MyTable where LastModifiedDate='<@User::TODAY>'
Devart PostgreSql Destination: create an additional component Derived Column (the Common tab in SSIS Toolbox)
some source -> Derived Column -> Devart PostgreSql Destination
Now you can drag&drop User::TODAY to the bottom surface within Derived Column Transformation Editor to create a new Input Column for Devart PostgreSql Destination (map it via the Column Mappings tab).

Does this help?
