SSIS – Package Configuration File

To avoid hard-coding the login credentials, we can enable package configurations.

From menu SSIS – Package Configurations, check “Enable package configurations”, click Add. From the Package Configuration Wizard, keep default of XML as file type, then browse to the file path where the config file is located.

A typical config file will look like this. \\Svrname\SQL_SHARE\SSIS\CONFIG_FILES\ConnName1.dtsConfig

<?xml version="1.0" ?>



<DTSConfigurationFileInfo GeneratedBy="AD-ENT\connorbp" GeneratedFromPackageName="Load_OAS_Data" GeneratedFromPackageID="{13A93147-DE76-488C-A901-4D227A161AD5}" GeneratedDate="7/24/2008 10:10:40 AM" />


<Configuration ConfiguredType="Property" Path="\Package.Connections[ConnName1].Properties[Password]" ValueType="String">



<Configuration ConfiguredType="Property" Path="\Package.Connections[ConnName1].Properties[UserName]" ValueType="String">
