    • 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.

        • 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: 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.

                        • SSIS annotations connected to objects

                          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'.

                              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.

                                    • TF Compression Task: Compress file without path included

                                      Currently, TF Compression Task includes entire directory path when it compresses the file (we have tested it in gzip compression). This was noticed when we uncompressed the file which was compressed by TF component. Execute Process Task (offered by Microsoft) works fine but we would like to avoid using Execute Process Task and use TF component. We are suggesting Pragmatic Works team, to update the TF Compression Task functionality to compress the file without pasting whole dir path or provide some kind of check box if users want to include the path or not.
