    • change the Dimension Merge SCD

      to allow a column to be specified in the "Variable containing now value". I don't like the fact that I'm limited to use a variable. In my dataset I could have records with different Start dates that I'd like to use to control the Effective/Expiry date.

      Would also be really nice to have a SCD0 option under the Existing Dimension Input Column Definitions.

      • Best Practices Analyzer - Customize Export

        When you export the results of the Best Practice Analyzer it only includes column for "Severity", "Name" and "Path". This doesn't tell you important pieces of information like the name of the project that is affected, the name of the package that is affected or the name of the best practice that was violated. Without that info, the export is pretty much useless.

          • Task Factory Advanced lookup transform: Clear cache

            Add a property to the advanced lkp transform that allows the developer to keep and share the cache within a package. In the current version the cache gets cleared after use and you have to make a other instance of the cache with the same data, this is a bit annoying with large fact tables.

            • Task Factory: Secure FTP - Allow for dual Authentication through the connection manager

              At the current moment you can only choose between the option to authenticate via "Password" or "Key File". In my environment I need to connect to my SFTP using both these items. I would like the functionality to be able to choose both options and populate with values.

              • Execute SSRS Reports from SSIS

                I would like to see the ability to Execute an SSRS report from SSIS. This way when data is loaded and successful, the reports can automatically be run and then possibly emailed to the user in one single process vs having seperate ETL and Report jobs run.

                • Enhance Upsert to enable simplified cloning for staging and handling of deletes

                  We use upsert to pull 1-on-1 copies from our production environment to staging. In case a source system does not correctly log modified rows, we use the hashing transform to calculate a checksum and use column compare to trigger row updates and last modified timestamps from upsert.

                  However, sometimes we like to either replicate or flag rows that were deleted in the source system. The way it is now, we have to pull from the source system and the copy, sort, join, and match on keys being available left or right (indicates insert or delete) and if the calculated checksum…

                  • BIxPress: Deployment tool create MSI file

                    Have a checkbox in the deployment utility that will create a msi installation file for my packages. Very common that developers are not permitted to deploy and to have a package that can depoy all changes that can be handed to DBA would be great.

                        Create an Execute PowerShell task for Task Factory. This task would include options such as executing specific script (cool feature would be to scan script and present dynamic fillable inputs for any parameters). Also could just write custom PowerShell script in task.

                          • Task Factory: Start Tableau Report Refresh

                            Please consider adding a task in Task Factory that can refresh a report in Tableau.

                            Often a report refresh cannot be done until a data warehouse load is finished. Having an object to kick that off directly from inside SSIS would add gigantic amounts of awesome sauce to an already amazing product.

                              After the audtting framework is applied, how about iterating through all of the data flows and resetting them to use Format->Auto Layout -> Diagram or do something... they look like spaghetti after your done.

                                    Create a Task Factory source component that would load a text file from a folder to the Amazon Cloud S3 bucket. The component should accept a number as a parameter, that would splits a single text file into X files, to be sent in parallel, achieving a higher transmission speed.

                                    • Add the ability for the Task Factory Error Output Destination to "complete", even when no error rows are passed.

                                      We want to be able to capture the Error Output primary key in all cases, whereas by testing and looking at your demo if you join multiple error outputs sources to a single output description task you can only capture the primary key for one error output source. For instance, in the screen shot from your help file, we want to capture the Error Output from both the Flat File Source and the Staging Table so we could see truncation occurs.

                                      • TF Dimension Merge Slowly Changing Dimension Transform - SCD0 changes ignored.

                                        Create toggle on SCD0 to allow to ignore changes. allow SCD 0 rows to be ignored or go down to invalid input.

                                        • BIxPress Data Cleansing / Data Quality Framework

                                          It would be great to be able to have a Data Cleansing / Data Quality Framework, leveraging on Task Factory TD Data Cleansing Component in which a set of data cleansing rules can be applied after all Source components. For example, after every OLE DB Source, add TF Data Cleansing to remove leading and trailing spaces, convert blank to Null, remove NonNumerics, validate values with a regex, etc..

                                          With a Data Cleansing Framework, you can apply it to all packages, instead of doing this one package at a time.
