Biml for Beginners:
Speed Up Your SSIS
Development
Cathrine Wilhelmsen
MMDPUG · March 28th 2017
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!

You…
…?
SSIS developer
Easily bored
Tired of repetitive work
Work…

Long development time
Many SSIS packages
Frequent requirement changes
job done!
new standards
...yay
Ever experienced this?
Ready for a change?
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
Why use Biml?
SSIS: Plumbing Biml: Business Logic
SSIS: Plumbing
Time wasted 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
High risk of manual errors
More packages, more time
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 reuse and scale
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!
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!

Let's generate
some packages!
Goal: Load from source to staging
Add New Biml File from BimlExpress menu…
…or right-click on SSIS project to Add New Biml File
Biml files are placed under Miscellaneous
Check Biml For Errors from BimlExpress menu…
…or right-click on file to Check Biml For Errors
Generate SSIS Packages from BimlExpress menu…
…or right-click on file to Generate SSIS Packages

Ok, so we can go from Biml to SSIS…
…can we go from SSIS to Biml?
Yes! ☺
Let's reverse-engineer
some packages!
Package Importer in BimlOnline
Choose a File
Convert from SSIS to Biml
Choose and filter assets
Copy the Biml…
…or Create /Add to BimlOnline Project
The magic is in the
What is BimlScript?
Extend Biml with C# or VB code blocks
Import database structure and metadata
Loop over tables and columns
Expressions replace static values
Generate, control and manipulate Biml code
BimlScript Code Nuggets
<# … #> Control Nuggets (Control logic)
<#= … #> Text Nuggets (Returns string)
<#@ … #> Directives (Compiler instructions)
<#+ … #> Class Nuggets (Create C# classes)

"Just plain text"
How does it work?
Yes, but how does it work?
Yes, but how does it actually work?
<# foreach (var table in RootNode.Tables) { #>
<Package Name="Load_<#=table.Name#>" />
<# } #>
<Package Name="Load_Customer" />
<Package Name="Load_Product" />
<Package Name="Load_Sales" />
Let's generate
a lot of packages!
Of course I can create 200 SSIS Packages!
…what do you need me to do after lunch?
Code Management
Don't Repeat Yourself
Move common code to separate files
Centralize and reuse in many projects
Update code once for all projects
1. Include files
2. CallBimlScript with parameters
3. Tiered Biml files
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" #>
This directive will be replaced by the included file
Works like an automated Copy & Paste
Include Files
Include Files
Include Files
CallBimlScript with Parameters
Like a parameterized include or stored procedure
File to be called (callee) specifies input parameters
<#@ property name="Param" type="String" #>
File that calls (caller) passes input parameters
<#=CallBimlScript("CommonCode.biml", Param)#>
CallBimlScript with Parameters
CallBimlScript with Parameters
CallBimlScript with Parameters
CallBimlScript with Parameters
CallBimlScript with Parameters
Tiered Biml Files
Split Biml code in multiple files
Specify tiers by using the template directive
<#@ template tier="2" #>
Biml files without BimlScript are implicitly tier 0
Biml files with BimlScript are implicitly tier 1
Tiered Biml Files
Biml is compiled from lowest to highest tier to:
• Solve logical dependencies
• Build solutions in multiple steps behind the scenes
For each tier, objects are added to the RootNode
Higher tiers can use objects from lower tiers
What is this RootNode?
When working with flat Biml,
the <Biml> root element contains
collections of elements:
<Biml>
<Connections>...</Connections>
<Databases>...</Databases>
<Schemas>...</Schemas>
<Tables>...</Tables>
<Projects>...</Projects>
<Packages>...</Packages>
</Biml>
When working with BimlScript,
the RootNode object contains
collections of objects:

Biml for Beginners: Speed up your SSIS development (Malta Microsoft Data Platform User Group)

  • 1. Biml for Beginners: Speed Up Your SSIS Development Cathrine Wilhelmsen MMDPUG · March 28th 2017
  • 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!

  • 11. Why use Biml? SSIS: Plumbing Biml: Business Logic
  • 12. SSIS: Plumbing Time wasted 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 High 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 reuse and scale
  • 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!

  • 62. Let's generate a lot of packages!
  • 63. Of course I can create 200 SSIS Packages! …what do you need me to do after lunch?
  • 65. Don't Repeat Yourself Move common code to separate files Centralize and reuse in many projects Update code once for all projects 1. Include files 2. CallBimlScript with parameters 3. Tiered Biml files
  • 66. 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" #> This directive will be replaced by the included file Works like an automated Copy & Paste
  • 70. CallBimlScript with Parameters Like a parameterized include or stored procedure File to be called (callee) specifies input parameters <#@ property name="Param" type="String" #> File that calls (caller) passes input parameters <#=CallBimlScript("CommonCode.biml", Param)#>
  • 76. Tiered Biml Files Split Biml code in multiple files Specify tiers by using the template directive <#@ template tier="2" #> Biml files without BimlScript are implicitly tier 0 Biml files with BimlScript are implicitly tier 1
  • 77. Tiered Biml Files Biml is compiled from lowest to highest tier to: • Solve logical dependencies • Build solutions in multiple steps behind the scenes For each tier, objects are added to the RootNode Higher tiers can use objects from lower tiers
  • 78. What is this RootNode? When working with flat Biml, the <Biml> root element contains collections of elements: <Biml> <Connections>...</Connections> <Databases>...</Databases> <Schemas>...</Schemas> <Tables>...</Tables> <Projects>...</Projects> <Packages>...</Packages> </Biml> When working with BimlScript, the RootNode object contains collections of objects:
