Easily back up Smartsheet data to SQL Server using the SSIS components for Smartsheet.

Using SQL Server as a backup for critical business data provides an essential safety net against loss. Backing up data to SQL Server enables business users to more easily connect that data with features like reporting, analytics, and more.

This example demonstrates how to use the CData SSIS Tasks for Smartsheet inside of a SQL Server SSIS workflow to transfer Smartsheet data into a Microsoft SQL Server database.

Add the Components

To get started, add a new Smartsheet source and SQL Server ADO.NET destination to a new data flow task.

Create a New Connection Manager

Follow the steps below to save Smartsheet connection properties in a connection manager.

In the Connection Manager window, right-click and then click New Connection. The Add SSIS Connection Manager dialog is displayed. In the Connection Manager type menu, select Smartsheet. The CData Smartsheet Connection Manager is displayed. Configure connection properties.

Smartsheet uses the OAuth authentication standard. To authenticate using OAuth, you will need to register an app to obtain the OAuthClientId, OAuthClientSecret, and CallbackURL connection properties.

However, for testing purposes you can instead use the Personal Access Token you get when you create an application; set this to the OAuthAccessToken connection property.
