Incremental Loading of Fact table using SSIS RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear All,

    I have created an Azure SQL Data-warehouse and created 15 dimensions and perform ETL using SSIS Incremental loading using data flow task and lookup transforms and it is working well..

    When i need to Load Fact table i choose Slowly Changing Dimension transform and it is throwing error. I need to do something very same what SCD does , which is creating new row in OLAP if Historical attribute value changed ..

    I found SCD transform does not supported by Azure Sql Warehouse.

    Could anyone help me out on how i achieve this using SSIS .

    Many thanks in advance..

  • Hi Sachin,

    The Slowly Changing Dimension Wizard only supports connections to SQL Server. So yes, you are partially correct but Azure SQL Data Warehouse still supports SCD by way of a loading methodology. Please see the following document: Slowly Changing Dimension Transformation (link).

    To accomplish this using SSIS with Azure SQL Data Warehouse, use the Advance Filter dialog box. Please see: Configuring the Slowly Changing Dimension Transformation Outputs (link)

    The Advanced Editor dialog box, in which you to select a connection, set common and custom component properties, choose input columns, and set column properties on the six outputs. To complete the task of configuring support for a slowly changing dimension, you must manually create the data flow for the outputs that the Slowly Changing Dimension transformation uses. For more information, see Data Flow.
