SQL Scripts

You can add custom SQL Scripts to your Solution and execute them from the script editor, Data Flows or Workbooks.

Defining SQL Scripts

You can add SQL scripts to folders and Data Stores in your Solution. Any valid T-SQL Script can be executed from InVision, and you can also use InVision Standard Directives to more easily address objects and properties in your Solution.

Executing SQL Scripts from Data Flows

Scripts are executed as Tasks in Data Flow Items hosted in Data Flows.

To add a Task for executing a SQL Script to a Data Flow Item, drag and drop the "Execute SQL Script" template from the Script Tasks node in the Data Flow Item Templates toolbox. (Available when the Tasks node of the Data Flow Item Explorer has focus.)

Next, you need to configure the new task by:

  • Specifying the Script Id:

    • Using the Data Flow Item parameter @[ScriptId]. Specify the argument by using the @Object[<script navn>].Id-directive or hard coding the value. If you want to hard code the Script Id, you can find it by right-clicking the node in the Solution Explorer and select "Copy Id to Clipboard".
  • Specifying a language code (optional):

    • It can be hardcoded or provided as an argument. You need to specify a language code if the script is using a directive that requires a language code execution context.
  • Mapping any script parameters:

    • Name : Specifies the name of the parameter used in the script.
    • DataType : Specifies the data type of the parameter.
    • Value : Specifies the argument. The value can be a Data Flow Item parameter of a hardcoded value.

Executing SQL Scripts from Workbooks

To execute a SQL Script from a Workbook, you need to add the script to the Workbook as a component.
