Biml Transformers

Bill Fellows uses a Biml transformer to change a variable’s value:

Our transformer is simple. We’ve specified “LocalMerge” as we only want to fix the one thing. That one thing, is an SSIS Variable named “ServerName”.

What is going to happen is that we will redeclare the variable, this time we will specify a value of “SQLQA” for our Value. Additionally, I’m going to add a Description to my Variable and preserve the original value. The TargetNode object has a lot of power to it as we’ll see over this series of posts on Biml Transformers.

I’ve not used transformers before; this was interesting.
