SQL On Insert Table Trigger Doesn't Run When Record Added Through SSIS RRS feed

  • Question

  • When a record in inserted into a specific table, I need database mail to get send out notifying that there's a new record in there. I setup a table trigger for on insert. This was tested successfully when just manually inserting a record in SQL Management Studio. Database mail gets sent out as expected. However, I have an SSIS package that runs on a schedule and it's doing the inserting. However, when a new record gets added to the table with the on insert trigger, no mail is sent out. I don't see a record of it at all in sysmail_allitems. Any idea why this would happen?

    My trigger: 

    ALTER TRIGGER [stg].[AlertNewRecord]
    ON [stg].[ActiveList] 
       EXEC msdb.dbo.sp_send_dbmail 
                            @profile_name = 'SMTPProfile', 
                            @recipients = '' , 
                            @body = 'A new record is in this table.', 
                            @subject = 'New Record Created'

  • Hi hellomynameiskayla,

    Could you please tell me the task that you use to do the inserting in SSIS Package? Data Flow Task or Execute SQL Task?

    If you use Data Flow Task with OLEDB Destination, it's better for you to specify FIRE_TRIGGERS as part of the OLE DB component through its Advanced Editor.

    Please refer to Why arent my triggers firing during an insert by ssis .
