SSIS Proxy Credential Ignored

Saransvan 106 Reputation points

If I run a SSIS package through a SQL Agent job using a runas SSIS proxy account the package doesn't work - fails with a required connection (which it has permissions to).

However, if I run SQL Agent using the same account as the proxy and choose SQL Agent runas in the SSIS job step, it all works.

Package works if run manually from the same account as well.

It just doesn't seem to be picking up the proxy credentials, can anyone suggest why please?

SQL version is 2016 Microsoft SQL Server 2016 (SP2-CU14)

    Hi @Saransvan ,

    May I know if you create credential firstly?
    If no, please create it. We can refer to the following links and pictures:

    1.Create a Credential
    Credentials provide a way to allow SQL Server Authentication users to have an identity outside of SQL Server.

    2.Create a SQL Server Agent Proxy
    A SQL Server Agent proxy account defines a security context in which a job step can run. Each proxy corresponds to a security credential.
