Check digital signature when loading a package

Select to have Integration Services check the digital signature when loading a package. Integration Services will only check whether the digital signature is present, is valid, and is from a trusted source. Integration Services will not check whether the package has been changed since the package was signed. 

If you set the BlockedSignatureStates registry value, this registry value overrides the Check digital signature when loading a package option. For more information, see Implement a Signing Policy by Setting a Registry Value.

For more information about digital certificates and packages, see Identify the Source of Packages with Digital Signatures.

Show warning if package is unsigned

Select to display a warning when loading a package that is not signed.

Show precedence constraint labels

Select which label—Success, Failure, or Completion—to display on precedence constraints when viewing packages in SQL Server Data Tools (SSDT). 

Scripting language

Select the default scripting language for new Script tasks and Script components.

Update connection strings to use new provider names

When opening or upgrading SQL Server 2005 Integration Services (SSIS) packages, update connection strings to use the names for the following providers, for the current release of SQL Server Integration Services:

  • Analysis Services OLE DB provider

  • SQL Server Native Client

The SSIS Package Upgrade Wizard updates only connection strings that are stored in connection managers. The wizard does not update connection strings that are constructed dynamically by using the Integration Services expression language, or by using code in a Script task.

Create new package ID

When upgrading SQL Server 2005 Integration Services (SSIS) packages, create new package IDs for the upgraded versions of the packages.
