How to run ssis package in core application?

三世轮回 提交于 2019-12-05 00:17:24


I have used Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime to run package in ASP.NET MVC. However I need to run this in core. As we cannot add individual dll in core, I was wondering if anyone has idea if there is nuget package which would help.


You can package the assembly into a nuget package, Create a Lib folder inside your solution to hold the nuget package, then, create a nuget.config file to set the package sources to include the Lib folder inside your solution.

The following links contains more details about creating nuget package and hosting it locally:


Hope that helps


Just to elaborate on how I resolved this issue. Below is the answer

To run SSIS package you need below DLLs in the code

  1. Microsoft.SqlServer.ManagedDTS.dll

  2. Microsoft.SqlServer.PipelineHost.dll

  3. Microsoft.SqlServer.DTSRuntimeWrap.dll

  4. Microsoft.SqlServer.DTSPipelineWrap.dll

It is easy to add DLLs in MVC projects, however in core it needs to be in form of a Nuget package.

So nuget package can be easily created using nuget package explorer. Below is the link

In the nuget package explorer add a lib folder, inside that add a .net folder dnxcore50 and add the above DLLs. Click on tools analyse package and save the nuget

In the visual studio 2015 solution, you can refer local packages. Tools - Nuget Package Manager - Package Manager Settings - Package source add the local package path.

After which you will be able to add the nuget package using nuget package manager and select local package as source

If there is error in restoring package, add dnxcore to imports section and add "Microsoft.NETCore.Portable.Compatibility": "1.0.1-rc2-24027" to dependencies in project.json

"dependencies": {
"Microsoft.AspNet.Hosting": "1.0.0-rc1-final",
"Microsoft.NETCore.Portable.Compatibility": "1.0.1-rc2-24027",
"SSISPackage": "1.0.0"

"frameworks": {
"netcoreapp1.0": {
  "imports": [

After which you will be able to use code to run SSIS package similar to MVC projects.

Application app = new Application();
        Package package = null;
            package = app.LoadPackage(@"C:\Files\Package.dtsx", null);
            Variables vars = package.Variables;
            vars["status"].Value = "ACTIVE";

            DTSExecResult results = package.Execute();

            return false;

            package = null;


You may now reference the dlls ( one from each) directly in your .net core project from the below locations to run ssis packages now


you no longer need to create a nuget package
