DTSEventFilterKind Enumeration

Describes the kind of event filter that is set on logging.

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

public enum DTSEventFilterKind

Member nameDescription
InclusionIndicates that the events added to the event filter are included in the event log.
ExclusionIndicates that the events added to the event filter are excluded from the event log.


One or more arguments are invalid. Occurs when the filter is set to a filter value that is not a member of the DTSEventFilterKind enumeration.

Events are included or excluded from the event log by setting the DTSEventFilterKind of the container. The DTSEventFilterKind enumeration contains two values: Exclusion and Inclusion, which indicate whether the events are included or excluded from the event log.

The following code example enables logging on a package, adds a log provider, then displays the default value of the EventFilterKind. Using the DTSEventFilterKind enumeration, the default value is changed.

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Text;
using Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime;

namespace Microsoft.SqlServer.SSIS.Sample
    class Program
        static void Main(string[] args)
            Package pkg = new Package();
            pkg.LoggingMode = DTSLoggingMode.Enabled;
            LogProvider log1 = pkg.LogProviders.Add("DTS.LogProviderTextFile.2");
            LoggingOptions lOpts = pkg.LoggingOptions;
            Console.WriteLine("EventFilterKind: {0}", pkg.LoggingOptions.EventFilterKind.ToString());

            pkg.LoggingOptions.EventFilterKind = DTSEventFilterKind.Inclusion;
            Console.WriteLine("EventFilterKind: {0}", pkg.LoggingOptions.EventFilterKind.ToString());

Sample Output:

EventFilterKind: Exclusion

EventFilterKind: Inclusion
