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

public DTSConfigurationType ConfigurationType { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime.DTSConfigurationType

A DTSConfigurationType enumeration whose value describes where the configuration information is stored.

There are many ways to store configuration information. The available options are listed in the DTSConfigurationType enumeration. For more information about configuration files for packages, see Create Package Configurations.

The following code example creates a package, enables configurations, and enables the export of the configuration file. It adds a new Configuration to the package Configurations collection, and sets several properties on the configuration. After saving and reloading the package, the configuration properties are displayed.

using Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Tasks.BulkInsertTask;

namespace configuration_API
    class Program
        static void Main(string[] args)
        // Create a package and set two properties.
            Package pkg = new Package();
            pkg.EnableConfigurations = true;

            // Create a variable object and add it to the 
            // package Variables collection.
            Variable varPkg = pkg.Variables.Add("var", false, "", 100);
            varPkg.Value = 1;
            string packagePathToVariable = varPkg.GetPackagePath();

            // Create a configuration object and add it to the 
           // package configuration collection.
            Configuration config = pkg.Configurations.Add();

           // Set properties on the configuration object.
            config.ConfigurationString = "conf.xml";
            config.Description = "My configuration description";
            config.ConfigurationType = DTSConfigurationType.ConfigFile;
            config.PackagePath = packagePathToVariable;

            // Save the package and its configuration.
            Application app = new Application();
            app.SaveToXml(@"c:\pkg.xml", pkg, null);

            // Reload the package.
            Package p1 = app.LoadPackage(@"c:\pkg.xml", null);

            // Review the configuration information.
            Configurations configs_After = pkg.Configurations;
            foreach(Configuration confAfter in configs_After)
                Console.WriteLine("ConfigurationString is {0}", confAfter.ConfigurationString);
                Console.WriteLine("ConfigurationType is {0}", confAfter.ConfigurationType);
                Console.WriteLine("CreationName is {0}", confAfter.CreationName);
                Console.WriteLine("Description is {0}", confAfter.Description);
                Console.WriteLine("Assigned ID is {0}", confAfter.ID);
                Console.WriteLine("Name is {0}", confAfter.Name);

Sample Output:

The value of variable var = 1

ConfigurationString is conf.xml

ConfigurationType is ConfigFile

CreationName is

Description is My configuration description

Assigned ID is {9CF65E37-0833-44CD-A99D-EBFE38FAB31B}

Name is {9CF65E37-0833-44CD-A99D-EBFE38FAB31B}

Package Path is \Package.Variables[::var]
