Master Data Service export data on-demand RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi folks,

    Background: In my current company the business users maintain a huge quantity of master data using
    excel. Then a series of SSIS jobs are edited and manually executed.

    Goal: the challenge is to replace this process using MDS. One of the requested features is the possibility for the users to edit or insert new master data using the Web UI or the Excel Add-in and when they are done perform a merge of the master data in the target, in this case in the reporting DB.

    Have anyone of you faced a similar situation?

    The perfect s
    olution for me is something like trigger the execution of a SSIS package to export the data from the subscription views to the reporting DB after the business rules are apply to a specific entity.

    Any comment or suggestion will be appreciated.

    Kind Regards,

  • You can trigger an SSIS package execution in a Custom Workflow.

    The simplest way is probably to create a SQL Agent job for your package and then call sp_start_job from your external workflow code.
