isNeatPublish Examples and Further Information

Below are two scenarios that contain screenshots of the isNeatPublish.XmlGenerator application with the corresponding sample isNeatPublish configuration XML files open. The sample files (which, after installation of isNeatPublish.XmlGenerator, can also be found at C:\Program Files (x86)\isNeatPublish\isNeatPublish\SampleXml) can be viewed via isNeatPublish.XmlGenerator.  The first sample outlines a deployment that publishes all object types while the second sample provides an .ispac deployment example.

Sample 1

This sample shows an example of how all SSIS object types are published. Note:-

  • for this sample, the "Specify source path of SSIS objects" option is checked and a "Source path location" is specified
  • this will result in a search of the folder entered, to look for an SSIS project file (.dtproj). If one is found the user will be prompted if they wish to import the settings within the file
  • this workflow is targeted at scenarios where the user would like to either
    • (recommended) a one-off import of the SSIS project file (.dtproj) then edit existing and add settings on top of those imported
    • or enter the settings manually (i.e. enter an SSIS packages base location and add environment variables, etc

Sample 2

This sample is an example of how to publish via the compiled SSIS deployment file (.ispac). Note:-

  • for this sample, the "SSIS deployment file (.ispac) import" option is checked and a ".ispac file location" is specified
  • this will result in an import of the settings within the specified .ispac file
  • because the .ispac file contains fixed settings, particular parts of the deployment cannot be modified (such as adding packages, parameter data, and there is only one environment that can be specified)
  • this workflow is targeted at scenarios where the user would like to deploy via the compiled .ispac binary file. After the .ispac file settings are imported, you can then enter further information to compliment the deployment (such as target SSIS catalog, details around the compiled environment, SQL Agent jobs)
