SSIS – Generate Package ID

Problem: when using a package template, or copying and pasting a package to clone a package in Solution Explorer, the newly created package has the same ID as its parent. This can be a problem in production environment where multiple packages having the same PackageID, logging into the same database. If something happens, I will not be able to trace which package is having the issue, since the PackageID is how I will map back to the package’s name.

Solution: the solution is simple. We can fix it by generating a new PackageID in BIDS.

In the package Properties windows, find ID, click the dropdown arrow on the right, and click <Generate New ID>.
