Dev Diary – Generating a Mapping Data Flow Staging process without a Persistent Staging Area
A real-world data solution often requires a combination of many different data loading patterns. Using BimlFlex, these patterns are applied by configuring the design to work in certain ways. This post shows how to configure BimlFlex to achieve different Staging pattern outcomes.
Dev Diary - First look at a source-to-staging pattern in Mapping Data Flows
With the 2021 BimlFlex release nearing completion, it's time to take a closer look at the patterns for Mapping Data Flows that will be made available in preview.
Dev Diary - Integration with the BimlCatalog
Every data solution benefits from a robust control framework for data logistics. One that manages if, how and when individual data logistics processes should be executed. A control framework also provides essential information to complete the audit trail of how data is processed through the system and is ultimately made available to users. BimlFlex provides the BimlCatalog for this.
Dev Diary – Orchestrating Mapping Data Flows
In Azure, a Mapping Data Flow itself is not an object that can be executed directly. Instead, it needs to be called from an Execute Pipeline. This pipeline can be run, and in turn it will start the data flow. BimlFlex has advanced features to manage this.
Dev Diary – Defining Mapping Data Flow Parameters with Biml
BimlFlex output uses Parameters at Mapping Data Flow level to integrate with the BimlCatalog and store metadata for use inside the data flow. This post explains how to set this up in Biml.
Using built-in logging for Biml
When working with Biml in any situation, be it using BimlExpress, BimlStudio or BimlFlex, it can be helpful to peek into what is happening in the background. Biml provides logging features to do so.
