This article describes how to reconfigure an existing Azure-SSIS integration runtime. To create an Azure-SSIS integration runtime (IR), see Create an Azure-SSIS integration runtime.

Azure portal

You can use Data Factory UI to stop, edit/reconfigure, or delete an Azure-SSIS IR.

  1. Open Data Factory UI by selecting the Author & Monitor tile on the home page of your data factory.
  2. Select the Manage hub below Home, Edit, and Monitor hubs to show the Connections pane.

To reconfigure an Azure-SSIS IR

On Manage hub, switch to the Integration runtimes page and select Refresh.

Connections pane

You can edit/reconfigure your Azure-SSIS IR by selecting its name. You can also select the relevant buttons to monitor/start/stop/delete your Azure-SSIS IR, auto-generate an ADF pipeline with Execute SSIS Package activity to run on your Azure-SSIS IR, and view the JSON code/payload of your Azure-SSIS IR. Editing/deleting your Azure-SSIS IR can only be done when it's stopped.

Azure PowerShell


We recommend that you use the Azure Az PowerShell module to interact with Azure. To get started, see Install Azure PowerShell. To learn how to migrate to the Az PowerShell module, see Migrate Azure PowerShell from AzureRM to Az.

After you provision and start an instance of Azure-SSIS integration runtime, you can reconfigure it by running a sequence of Stop - Set - Start PowerShell cmdlets consecutively. For example, the following PowerShell script changes the number of nodes allocated for the Azure-SSIS integration runtime instance to five.


For Azure-SSIS IR in Azure Synapse Analytics, replace with corresponding Azure Synapse Analytics PowerShell interfaces: Get-AzSynapseIntegrationRuntime, Set-AzSynapseIntegrationRuntime (Az.Synapse), Remove-AzSynapseIntegrationRuntime, Start-AzSynapseIntegrationRuntime and Stop-AzSynapseIntegrationRuntime.

Reconfigure an Azure-SSIS IR

  1. First, stop the Azure-SSIS integration runtime by using the Stop-AzDataFactoryV2IntegrationRuntime cmdlet. This command releases all of its nodes and stops billing.

    Stop-AzDataFactoryV2IntegrationRuntime -DataFactoryName $DataFactoryName -Name $AzureSSISName -ResourceGroupName $ResourceGroupName 
  2. Next, reconfigure the Azure-SSIS IR by using the Set-AzDataFactoryV2IntegrationRuntime cmdlet. The following sample command scales out an Azure-SSIS integration runtime to five nodes.

    Set-AzDataFactoryV2IntegrationRuntime -DataFactoryName $DataFactoryName -Name $AzureSSISName -ResourceGroupName $ResourceGroupName -NodeCount 5
  3. Then, start the Azure-SSIS integration runtime by using the Start-AzDataFactoryV2IntegrationRuntime cmdlet. This command allocates all of its nodes for running SSIS packages.

    Start-AzDataFactoryV2IntegrationRuntime -DataFactoryName $DataFactoryName -Name $AzureSSISName -ResourceGroupName $ResourceGroupName

Delete an Azure-SSIS IR

  1. First, list all existing Azure SSIS IRs under your data factory.

    Get-AzDataFactoryV2IntegrationRuntime -DataFactoryName $DataFactoryName -ResourceGroupName $ResourceGroupName -Status
  2. Next, stop all existing Azure SSIS IRs in your data factory.

    Stop-AzDataFactoryV2IntegrationRuntime -DataFactoryName $DataFactoryName -Name $AzureSSISName -ResourceGroupName $ResourceGroupName -Force
  3. Next, remove all existing Azure SSIS IRs in your data factory one by one.

    Remove-AzDataFactoryV2IntegrationRuntime -DataFactoryName $DataFactoryName -Name $AzureSSISName -ResourceGroupName $ResourceGroupName -Force
  4. Finally, remove your data factory.

    Remove-AzDataFactoryV2 -Name $DataFactoryName -ResourceGroupName $ResourceGroupName -Force
  5. If you had created a new resource group, remove the resource group.

    Remove-AzResourceGroup -Name $ResourceGroupName -Force
