I have fully encrypted an SSIS package.  It runs just fine on my computer when I enter a password.  How do I run the package as a job?  I think that I'll need to send the password to the SSIS package before it can run automatically.

When you create a SSIS job, it forces you to enter the password.


You'll find that the job cmd line will use the /DE parameter with DTEXEC

You can also use DTEXECUI to specify all of you package parameters, including the password, and let it build the command line for you, if you just want to run it from a batch file.

Could you please post here an example of how to do this?  I'm not sure how to structure this exactly.  Thanks.

If you have a package, saved to the file system:

Open Management studio, connect to the database engine
Open out SQL Server Agent, right click on Jobs and press New Job
Click on Steps, press New to add a new step
Pick a step of type 'SQL Server Integration Services Package'
Now you've got a whole load of options below to fill in, including the path to the file. You'll be asked to enter the package password also.

Thanks. I wasn't very clear on my last post.

I was meaning to ask, how do I structure the command line to run the job with the password?  I'm not quite clear on how to put the password in the command line.

1. Go to a command line
2. Type DTExecUI
3. Fill in the blanks
4. Go to the Command Line section

There's your command line, including /DE. You just need to put DTEXEC in front of it

i.e.

DTEXEC /FILE [YourPacakgePath] /DE[YourPassword]
