Precisely Managing Metadata Changes in KingswaySoft Components

The components we developed at KingswaySoft generally discover metadata automatically whenever possible - That is, our software retrieves metadata information made available by the API itself in order to properly populate our ETL components. In most cases, the metadata in our components is generally accurate, provided the target system has a reliable metadata API. This includes services like Dataverse/Dynamics 365 CE, Salesforce, SharePoint, etc. Accurate metadata is vital for data integrity in ETL processes. However, there are occasional cases where some ETL metadata fine-tuning may be necessary due to unique situations. For instance, you might encounter cases where a text field contains more data than what is indicated by its metadata, potentially causing the source extraction to fail. In such instances, manual editing of the metadata will be required in order for the ETL process to work. In this blog post, we will show you how such changes can be made properly for your ETL components.

Periodically Clean Up File Folders Using SSIS Productivity Pack

29 May 2023

Applications and processes often rely on external resources, which can be expensive to retrieve or obtain. Therefore, modern applications often employ cache strategies to save these external resources in the local file system and achieve improved performance. In some other cases, you might have an application that keeps creating random temporary files to facilitate certain system requirements which cannot be achieved otherwise. However, as every coin has two sides, these caches or temporary files, in the long run, can build up in the system and occupy large disk space, which could have adverse effects and result in volume deficiency in the system. Implementing a scheduled cleanup of the cache folder by removing those files that are older than a certain age can become necessary in your ETL process.

In the general integration practice, it is a very common use case to monitor a folder path for any file changes, and as soon as a file with certain criteria lands in the folder or gets modified, a process should kick off or otherwise, an email notification should be sent via email. With the new Premium File Watcher Task added to our SSIS Productivity Pack in our most recent v23.1 release, this can be easily achievable in an automated fashion. In this blog post, we will demonstrate the design and configurations required to watch a file path on a continuous basis and send an email notification when a specific change happens in it.
