Executing via Proxy in SSIS

Andy Brownsword submits a series of requests through a proxy:

When executing packages for SSIS the default option would be to use the SQL Server Agent service account. We might not want to share an account between our services and Integration Services packages due to security risks.

Let’s take a common example: Suppose we have a package which reads from a file share. If permissions aren’t set up correctly this can fail. Even if access is corrected, the service account can cache that failure. The only way to resolve may be to restart the service. This isn’t something we’d want to be doing on production systems.

Read on to see how you can use a proxy to bypass this problem.
