Biml for Beginners:
Script and Automate
SSIS Development
Cathrine Wilhelmsen
#SQLMalibu · April 18th 2018
Session Description
Are you tired of creating and updating the same SSIS packages again and again? Is your wrist hurting
from all that clicking, dragging, dropping, connecting and aligning? Do you want to take the next step and
really speed up your SSIS development?
Say goodbye to repetitive work and hello to Biml, the markup language for Business Intelligence projects.
In this session we will look at the basics of Biml. First learn how to use Biml to generate SSIS packages
from database metadata. Then see how you can reuse code to implement changes in multiple SSIS
packages and projects with just a few clicks. Finally, we will create an example project that you can
download and start with to speed up your SSIS development from day one.
Stop wasting your valuable time on doing the same things over and over and over again, and see how
you can complete in a day what once took more than a week!

Biml for Beginners: Script and Automate SSIS development (Malibu SQL Server User Group)

  • 1. Biml for Beginners: Script and Automate SSIS Development Cathrine Wilhelmsen #SQLMalibu · April 18th 2018
  • 2. Session Description Are you tired of creating and updating the same SSIS packages again and again? Is your wrist hurting from all that clicking, dragging, dropping, connecting and aligning? Do you want to take the next step and really speed up your SSIS development? Say goodbye to repetitive work and hello to Biml, the markup language for Business Intelligence projects. In this session we will look at the basics of Biml. First learn how to use Biml to generate SSIS packages from database metadata. Then see how you can reuse code to implement changes in multiple SSIS packages and projects with just a few clicks. Finally, we will create an example project that you can download and start with to speed up your SSIS development from day one. Stop wasting your valuable time on doing the same things over and over and over again, and see how you can complete in a day what once took more than a week!
  • 3. Biml Basics Tools & Code SQL and SSIS from Metadata …the next 60 minutes…
  • 4. Cathrine Wilhelmsen @cathrinew cathrinew.net Data Warehouse & Business Intelligence Consultant
  • 6. Work… …? Long development time Many SSIS packages Frequent requirement changes
  • 8. It's time for a change!
  • 10. What is Biml? Business Intelligence Markup Language Easy to read and write XML language Describes business intelligence objects: • Databases, Schemas, Tables, Views, Columns • SSIS Packages • SSAS Cubes
  • 11. Why use Biml? SSIS: Plumbing Biml: Business Logic
  • 12. SSIS: Plumbing Spend time on dragging, dropping, connecting, aligning Create the same package over and over again with minor changes Standards, patterns and templates must be defined up-front Changes must be done in every single package Higher risk of manual errors More packages, more time
  • 13. Biml: Business Logic Spend time on what is unique in a package Create a pattern once and reuse for all similar packages Handle scope and requirement changes quickly and easily Changes can be applied to all packages at once Lower risk of manual errors Longer time to start, but then automate and reuse
  • 14. Will Biml solve all your challenges? Probably not... Biml is a tool for generating SSIS packages Biml is not a pre-defined ETL framework Biml is not a tool for automated deployment ...but it will solve many challenges!
  • 15. How can Biml help you? Biml is great for large projects with common patterns… Timesaving: Many SSIS packages from one Biml file Reusable: Write once and run on any platform Flexible: Start simple, expand as you learn …but is also useful for smaller projects!

  • 58. Of course I can create 200 SSIS Packages! …what do you need me to do after lunch?
  • 59. Don't Repeat Yourself Move code to separate files Centralize and reuse Update once for all projects 1. Tiered Biml Files 2. Include Files 3. CallBimlScript
  • 61. What are Tiered Biml Files? Think of tiers as stacked layers or sequential steps Tier (Layer) 1 Tier 0 Tier (Layer) 2 Tier (Step) 1 Tier (Step) 2
  • 62. Tiered Biml Files Split Biml code in multiple files to: • Solve logical dependencies • Build solutions in multiple steps behind the scenes Specify the tier per file by using the template directive: <#@ template tier="2" #>
  • 63. Tiered Biml Files Biml is compiled step-by-step from lowest to highest tier • Biml files are implicitly tier 0 • BimlScript files are implicitly tier 1 In each tier, objects are added in-memory to RootNode Higher tiers can call RootNode to use objects from lower tiers
  • 64. Tiered Biml Files: Behind the Scenes Connections Load Packages Master Package Connections Databases Schemas Tables Packages
  • 65. Tiered Biml Files: Behind the Scenes Connections Load Packages Master Package Connections Databases Schemas Tables Packages
  • 66. Tiered Biml Files: Behind the Scenes Connections Load Packages Master Package Connections Admin Source Destination Databases Schemas Tables Packages
  • 67. Tiered Biml Files: Behind the Scenes Connections Load Packages Master Package Connections Admin Source Destination Databases Schemas Tables Packages
  • 68. Tiered Biml Files: Behind the Scenes Connections Load Packages Master Package Connections Admin Source Destination Databases Schemas Tables Packages
  • 69. Tiered Biml Files: Behind the Scenes Connections Load Packages Master Package Connections Admin Source Destination Databases Schemas Tables Packages Load_Customer Load_Product Load_Sales
  • 70. Tiered Biml Files: Behind the Scenes Connections Load Packages Master Package Connections Admin Source Destination Databases Schemas Tables Packages Load_Customer Load_Product Load_Sales
  • 71. Tiered Biml Files: Behind the Scenes Connections Load Packages Master Package Connections Admin Source Destination Databases Schemas Tables Packages Load_Customer Load_Product Load_Sales
  • 72. Tiered Biml Files: Behind the Scenes Connections Load Packages Master Package Connections Admin Source Destination Databases Schemas Tables Packages Load_Customer Load_Product Load_Sales Master
  • 73. Tiered Biml Files: Behind the Scenes Connections Load Packages Master Package Connections Admin Source Destination Databases Schemas Tables Packages Load_Customer Load_Product Load_Sales Master
  • 74. Tiered Biml Files: Behind the Scenes Connections Admin Source Destination Databases Schemas Tables Packages Load_Customer Load_Product Load_Sales Master
  • 75. How do you use Tiered Biml Files? 1. Create Biml files with specified tiers 2. Select all the tiered Biml files 3. Right-click and click Generate SSIS Packages 1 2 3
  • 77. Annotations and ObjectTags Annotations and ObjectTags are Key / Value pairs Use them to store and pass code between tiers Annotations: String / String ObjectTags: String / Object
  • 78. Annotations Create annotations: <OleDbConnection Name="Dest"> <Annotations> <Annotation Tag="Schema">aw</Annotation> </Annotations> </OleDbConnection> Use annotations: RootNode.OleDbConnections["Dest"].GetTag("Schema");
  • 79. ObjectTags Create ObjectTags: RootNode.ObjectTag["Filter"] = new List<string>{"Product","ProductCategory"}; Use ObjectTags: RootNode.ObjectTag["Filter"];
  • 81. Include Files Include common code in multiple files and projects Can include many file types: .biml .txt .sql .cs Use the include directive <#@ include file="CommonCode.biml" #> The directive will be replaced by the included file Works like an automated Copy & Paste
  • 86. CallBimlScript Works like a parameterized include (or stored procedure) File to be called (callee) specifies accepted parameters: <#@ property name="Parameter" type="String" #> File that calls (caller) passes parameters: <#=CallBimlScript("Common.biml", Parameter)#>
  • 92. How does all this work?
