Executes SQL queries against an MS SQL database and returns the result set as an XML document.


Properties

Connection

Type: Connection Input

Server
Type: String
The name or IP address of the server hosting the Microsoft SQL Server instance. Specify a DropPoint if you need to access a SQL instance that is not Internet-exposed.

Database
Type: String
The name of the database to connect to.

UserId
Type: String
The SQL username to be used for the connection. Not required when UseWinAuth is True.

Password
Type: Password
The SQL password to be used for the connection. Not required when UseWinAuth is True.

UseWinAuth
Type: Boolean
When True, indicates that the security context of the caller should be used to authenticate. In Flowgear, UseWinAuth can only be used when the Connection is routed through a DropPoint. In such instances, the security context is the service account used for the DropPoint Windows Service.
Provides an endpoint and credentials for the SQL instance to be queried

Query

Type: Multiline Text Input
The SQL query text

XmlQuery

Type: Boolean Input
When True, indicates that the query provided in the Query property is an XML Query (ie. a query containing the FOR XML statement - refer to http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms178107.aspx for more information on XML queries).

ResultXml

Type: Xml Output
The ResultXml Property

RowsAffected

Type:Int32 Output
This return the number of rows returned by SQL. Note that for Xml Query, this is not accurate because the xml string gets split into rows in the result, which is consolidated in the node.

Remarks

Use this Connector to execute SQL queries against a Microsoft SQL Server instance. 

SQL Parameters via Custom Properties

Flowgear Custom Properties can be added to this Node to make SQL parameters available in the Query Property. Use of a Custom Property is shown in the linked example workflow (see Examples below).

XML Mode

In XML Query mode, the Connector will automatically build a single XML document from the multiple result-set rows that may be returned.

Other Nodes for SQL databases

If you are updating values in a table based on keys, consider using SQL Table Update instead of crafting update statements.

If you need to integrate with a non-Microsoft SQL database, refer to Integrating with SQL Databases for additional information and connection strings.

Examples
