executeSSISinternalpackage Step


This step executes an internal Microsoft SQL server integration services (SSIS) package.  


  • targetserver – name of the SSIS server instance
  • folderName – name of the package folder
  • projectName – name of the project
  • packageName – name of the package 



  • True – step executed successfully
  • False – step failed to execute 




Please refer to SQL Server documentation on how to setup SSIS external packages:



Let’s build and execute the “executeSSISInternalPackageDef” example.   

  • Create a new definition called “executeSSISInternalPackageDef”
  • Select the definition and click the “design” button
  • Drag an “executeSSISInternalPackage” step to the canvas
  • Connect the dots between the start and “executeSSISInternalPackage” step
  • Click on the “executeSSISInternalPackage” step to configure its “Settings” properties. Provide a name to the step. Provide a target server name. Provide folder name. Provide project name. Provide package name. 
  • The “Logging” setting configuration is necessary for documentation and also measure the workflow progress and the percent complete. This is acheived by configuring the step state and percent fields individually as shown in the images below. Configure the “Logging” using the following properties.
  • Save the process definition, create a new process instance and execute. 
  • Render the process instance. Click on the process step. The step should execute the internal package.
