Using the OneDrive Connection Manager

The OneDrive Connection Manager is an SSIS connection manager component that can be used to establish connections with OneDrive.

To add a OneDrive connection to your SSIS package, right-click the Connection Manager area in your Visual Studio project, and choose "New Connection..." from the context menu. You will be prompted the "Add SSIS Connection Manager" window. Select the "OneDrive" item to add the new OneDrive connection manager.

Account Type

The Account Type option allows you to connect to OneDrive for Business or OneDrive Personal.

Edit Account Information

The Edit Account Information button completes the entire OAuth authentication process inside of the toolkit. All you need to do is login to OneDrive and authorize our app to generate your OneDrive tokens. Notice you must first fill out proxy settings on the Advanced Settings tab if proxy exists.

Timeout (secs)

The Timeout (secs) option allows you to specify a timeout value in seconds for the connection. The default value is 120 seconds.

Test Connection

After all the connection information has been provided, you may click the Test Connection button to test if the connection settings entered are valid.

Proxy Mode (since v2.1)

Proxy Mode option allows to specify how you want to configure the proxy server setting. There are three options available.

  • No Proxy
  • Auto-detect (Using system configured proxy)
  • Manual
Proxy Server

Using Proxy Server option allows you to specify the name of the proxy server for the connection.

Port

The Port option allows you to specify the port number of the proxy server for the connection.

Username (Proxy Server Authentication)

Username option (under Proxy Server Authentication) allows you to specify the proxy user account.

Password (Proxy Server Authentication)

Password option (under Proxy Server Authentication) allows you to specify the proxy user's password.

NOTE:  The Proxy Password is not included in the connection manager's ConnectionString property by default. This is by design for security reasons. However, you can include it in your ConnectionString if you want to parameterize your connection manager. The format would be ProxyPassword=myProxyPassword;  (make sure you have a semicolon as the last character). It can be anywhere in the ConnectionString.

More Info page

The More Info page shows some basic information about the toolkit. In this page, you can find the version information of the toolkit.
