    • Task Factory: take SQL Data and automtically update Active Directory

      We have all kinds of people that work for us. Some are employees, some are independent registered reps, and some are contractors. We keep track of all of these people in a SQL Server database with a unique key. We have a database that needs to post that unique key into an active directory attribute. We need to update Active Directory. I have written a process that reads Active Directory, but I need to update Active Directory.

          • Hyperlink SSRS Dataset Query Command Text stored procedure to object in Database

            Most of my reports use stored procedures for the query command text. In a snapshot/document that includes the database where the report's stored procedure resides, I need a hyperlink from the report's Query Command Text to that stored procedure so I can see its text.

            • Add a Snippet to SSIS package container currently having focus.

              I use containers a lot in creating my SSIS packages. When I am adding Snippets to my packages, I keep having to scroll a lot to go find the latest Snippet I added because it seems as though it is created about 1/2 down the overall diagram and on the far right. It would be much handier if it would either appear in whatever container I am working in or, at least, wherever I right click to start the process.

              • When using the RegEx transform within TaskFactory, have the ability to add multiple expressions within the transform.

                When using regular expressions to parse out specific information from a long string that comes from a flat file source that is output in one column, it would be nice to have the option to input more than just one expression per transform since their is only one input column in this instance. Currently to parse out different values in this situation you would need to add an individual RegEx transform for each regular expression you would like to use.

                  • Task Factory: Dimension Merge SCD - Automatically detect if a column is nullable for the Row detection tab

                    There was a change made to the DM SCD which requires the nullable option in the Row Detection tab to be filled out manually. In older releases this was not required so it has caused some issues. I would be nice to have some way to either have it auto-detect this or a select all option.

                    • Provide the ability to write custom functions and add them to the Function List in the TF Expression Editor

                      Provide SSIS/TF users the ability to write their own, custom functions and include them in the Function List in the TF Expression Editor. This solves the most important "Script Re-Use" issue.
                      I need, for instance, to perform a compound set of transformations on all incoming fields of certain types (i.e. organization names, or street addresses) to clean them up and normalize them, no matter what source, of many, they come from.
                      This would allow users to drop their custom functions into any data flow where they're needed instead of painstakingly re-crafting each, from multiple components for every field and dataflow. …

                                • Task Factory SalesForce Source: Option to select multiple objects

                                  I suggest the functionality within the Sales Force Source to identify, and subsequently generate, information from multiple Objects. Currently the user must create separate Sales Force Sources to generate a series of information from multiple objects because only one object can be selected in the Sales Force Component. By adding this feature, the user would be capable of pulling specific information from specific objects in Sales Force eliminating the need to generate multiple steps in one package.

                                    • BI xPress - Applying Auditing Framework with Row Count Logging enabled currently requires auto-layout of Data Flow

                                      Currently when applying Auditing Framework with Row Count Logging enabled, the data flow must have an auto-layout performed as rows are inserted into the package on every data flow within the package. This can be a nuisance if you have manually formatted the layout on the data flow on your package, your time spent manually formatting is overwritten by the auto layout. It would be great if BI xPress could somehow be improved to either:
                                      A) Allow the user to apply Framework with Row Count Logging onto targeted data flows. This would limit the auto-layout override to only targeted data…

                                        • Read email with SMTP

                                          There are three protocols available for the email connection manager.
                                          ■ POP3 - Read only
                                          ■ IMAP - Read Only
                                          ■ SMTP - Send Only

                                          I am currently using POP3 for reading emails and it works great - most of the time. My SA is pressuring me to use SMTP for this task so my question is: Is it possible to use SMTP for reading emails?
