    • 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.

      • 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.

            • 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…

                    • After addigin the auditting framework BiXpress screws up the diagram layouts.

                      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.

                          • 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.

                              Hi!

                              It would be nice to have MongoDB Source/Destination as a part of SSIS. Currently, it is only possible to extract/import data from/to MongoDB using convoluted C# scripts.

                                  My suggestion is to make a ssis annotation task/textbox that you can connect to WF and DF objects. In large packages it's a problem when you add for example auditing framework and rearrange automaticly, then normal annotations looses their 'connection'.

                                  • BIxPress Lookup No Match & Error Output handling & auditing Framework

                                    It would be great if we had a Framework that we can apply to all SSIS packages to handle and audit NoMatch Output and Error Output for all Lookups. For example, In some cases we would like to return -1 for NoMatch lookup values and errors and be able to log in a SQL Server table such rows. This will be a great piece of information to add as an exceptions report in BIxPress.

                                      • google AdWords SSIS Source and Destination component

                                        It would be great to have a SSIS source and destination component to access google AdWords data.

                                        • Upsert Static Value

                                          With the Upsert Destination I would like to have the ability to enter a static value on the Column Mappings instead of a Column Name. So if I have a Destination column called 'RecordType' and I don't want to create an upstream column for a value, I just want to have the ability to enter in a value of '2' for the 'RecordType' destination column that should be used when insert, updating or inserting & updating. It would also be nice to have a condition on the static value so that you could insert one specific value on an insert…
