GetPackageInfos Method

Application.GetPackageInfos Method (String, String, String, String)

 

Gets a PackageInfos collection that contains the packages stored in an instance of SQL Server, within the specified logical folder, by using the server name, user name, and password.

Namespace:   Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime
Assembly:  Microsoft.SqlServer.ManagedDTS (in Microsoft.SqlServer.ManagedDTS.dll)

Public Function GetPackageInfos (
	strFolder As String,
	serverName As String,
	serverUserName As String,
	serverPassword As String
) As PackageInfos

Parameters

strFolder
Type: System.String

The logical folder that contains the packages you want to enumerate. If you want package information from the File System folder in the SSIS Package Store, use the GetDtsServerPackageInfos method. The logical folders in which packages are stored within MSDB can be created from the Stored Packages\MSDB node in Management Studio, by the dtutil.exe command prompt utility, or by the CreateFolderOnSqlServer method.

serverName
Type: System.String

The name of the SQL Server instance where the packages reside.

serverUserName
Type: System.String

The account name used to log on to the instance of SQL Server, if you need to log in to SQL Server using standard authentication. If you are using Windows Authentication, use null.

serverPassword
Type: System.String

The password of the user account, if you need to log in to SQL Server using standard authentication. If you are using Windows Authentication, use null.

This method bypasses the SSIS Service and connects directly to an instance of SQL Server to gather information about packages stored in the MSDB database. It returns a PackageInfo object for each package stored in the specified logical folder. From the PackageInfo object, you can obtain the package's name, description, creation date, version, and additional information.

For more information, see Managing Packages and Folders Programmatically.

The following code example retrieves the collection from the application object and iterates over each object in the collection, printing its description.

Dim app As Application =  New Application() 
Dim pInfos As PackageInfos =  app.GetPackageInfos("\\","yourserver",Nothing,Nothing) 
For Each pInfo As PackageInfo In pInfos
    Console.WriteLine("Name: {0}", pInfo.Name)
Next

Sample Output:
