Hi, What's the best way to create (and upgrade to) SSIS package in SQL 2019? Is it through Visual Studio 2019 or we can use a separate tool for this now? What's the most comprehensive method as with Visual Studio 2019 there seems to be different components one needs to add eg SSDT and BIDS or SSIS Projects extension?

    Hi @Michelle C,

    You can use various methods to upgrade SQL Server 2008 (10.0.x), SQL Server 2008 R2 (10.50.x), SQL Server 2012 (11.x), or SQL Server 2014 (12.x) packages. For some of these methods, the upgrade is only temporary. For others, the upgrade is permanent. The following table describes each of these methods and whether the upgrade is temporary or permanent.

    SQL Server provides the SSIS Package Upgrade Wizard to help in this process. Because you can configure the wizard to backup up your original packages, you can continue to use the original packages if you experience upgrade difficulties.

    The SSIS Package Upgrade Wizard is installed when Integration Services is installed.
