Path Properties

Topic Status: Some information in this topic is preview and subject to change in future releases. Preview information describes new features or changes to existing features in Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Community Technology Preview 2 (CTP2).

The data flow objects in the Microsoft SQL Server Integration Services object model have common properties and custom properties at the level of the component, inputs and outputs, and input columns and output columns. Many properties have read-only values that are assigned at run time by the data flow engine.

This topic lists and describes the custom properties of the paths that connect data flow objects.

In the Integration Services object model, a path that connects components in the data flow implements the IDTSPath100 interface.

The following table describes the configurable properties of the paths in a data flow. The data flow engine also assigns values to additional read-only properties that are not listed here.
