Applies To: SQL Server 2016

What do you want to do?

  1. Open the Configure SSIS Logs Dialog Box

  2. Configure the Options in the Containers Pane

  3. Configure the Options on the Providers and Logs Tab

  4. Configure the Options on the Details Tab

To open the Configure SSIS Logs dialog box

  • In the SSIS Designer, click Logging on the SSIS menu.

Use the Containers pane of the Configure SSIS Logs dialog box to enable the package and its containers for logging.

Options

Containers
Select the check boxes in the hierarchical view to enable the package and its containers for logging:

  • If cleared, the container is not enabled for logging. Select to enable logging.

  • If dimmed, the container uses the logging options of its parent. This option is not available for the package.

  • If checked, the container defines its own logging options.

If a container is dimmed and you want to set logging options on the container, click its check box twice. The first click clears the check box, and the second click selects it, enabling you to choose the log providers to use and select the information to log.

Use the Providers and Logs tab of the Configure SSIS Logs dialog box to create and configure logs for capturing run-time events.

Options

Provider type
Select a type of log provider from the list.

Add
Add a log of the specified type to the collection of log providers of the package.

Name
Enable or disable logs for containers or tasks selected in the Containers pane of the Configure SSIS Logs dialog box, by using the check boxes. The name field is editable. Use the default name for the provider, or type a unique descriptive name.

Description
The description field is editable. Click and then modify the default description of the log.

Configuration
Select an existing connection manager in the list, or click <New connection...> to create a new connection manager. Depending on the type of log provider, you can configure an OLE DB connection manager or a File connection manager. The log provider for the Microsoft Windows Event Log requires no connection.

Use the Details tab of the Configure SSIS Logs dialog box to specify the events to enable for logging and the information details to log.
