Integration Services Project Conversion Wizard

The Integration Services Project Conversion Wizard converts a project to the project deployment model.

Note Note

If the project contains one or more datasources, the datasources are removed when the project conversion is completed. To create a connection to a data source that can be shared by the packages in the project, add a connection manager at the project level. For more information, see Add, Delete, or Share a Connection Manager in a Package.

Do one of the following to open the Integration Services Project Conversion Wizard.

  • Open the project in Visual Studio, and then in Solution Explorer, right-click the project and click Convert to Project Deployment Model.

  • From Object Explorer in Management Studio, right-click the Projects node and select Import Packages.

Depending on whether you run the Integration Services Project Conversion Wizard from Visual Studio or from SQL Server Management Studio, the wizard performs different conversion tasks. For more information, see Deploy Projects to Integration Services Server.
