Biml Language Reference
CustomExtensionContainerTask Element
Custom tasks to run additional code or scripts during the creation of a Table, Dimension, or Fact.
Attributes
  Attribute API Type Default Description
ConstraintMode ContainerConstraintMode
This value specifies the mode that should be used to execute the children of the container or package. Parallel directly matches the SSIS behavior and will require that precedence constraints are created manually for all task connections. Linear will automatically create precedence constraints so that tasks will run one after the other in the order that they are specified in the Biml. Linear is primarily useful for scripting scenarios where creating precedence constraints would be tedious.

[.NET API Property: ConstraintMode]

DelayValidation Boolean
This value specifies whether the validation of the Dataflow task in SSIS should be delayed until the package is executed. DelayValidation is most often used when the ETL process references tables and other server assets that were created in an earlier stage of the data processing run.

[.NET API Property: DelayValidation]

Disabled Boolean
This value specifies whether the item is disabled. The default value is False.

[.NET API Property: Disabled]

DisableEventHandlers Boolean
This value specifies whether the event handlers for this task, container, or package should be prevented from executing. The default value is False.

[.NET API Property: DisableEventHandlers]

FailPackageOnFailure Boolean
This value determines whether the container will fail when a container component fails. If this container corresponds to a package, then the only valid value is False.

[.NET API Property: FailPackageOnFailure]

FailParentOnFailure Boolean
This value determines whether the parent container will fail when a child container failes. The default value is False.

[.NET API Property: FailParentOnFailure]

ForcedExecutionValue String
If the ForceExecutionValue property is set to True, then the container will return the value stored in this property as its execution value. Otherwise, this value will be ignored. The default value for ForecedExecutionValue is 0.

[.NET API Property: ForcedExecutionValue]

ForcedExecutionValueDataType TypeCode
This property specifies the data type of the value stored in the ForceExecutionValue property.

[.NET API Property: ForcedExecutionValueDataType]

ForceExecutionResult ForceExecutionResult
This value indicates whether a specified execution result value will result if the container runs. The default value is None, which means that the container does not force a specified outcome.

[.NET API Property: ForceExecutionResult]

ForceExecutionValue Boolean
Gets or sets a Boolean that indicates whether the execution value of the container should be forced to contain the value specified in the ForcedExecutionValue property.

[.NET API Property: ForceExecutionValue]

Id Guid
Allows the developer to specify a unique identifier (GUID) for the package. This can be used to retain a consistent ID between builds.

[.NET API Property: Id]

IsolationLevel IsolationLevel
Sets the Isolation Level which controls how Transactions behave for this container.

[.NET API Property: IsolationLevel]

Language Language
This specifies the default language to be used by this task and its descendants.

[.NET API Property: Language]

LoggingMode LoggingMode
This value specifies whether logging is enabled or disabled by the container or by the parent container. The default value is UseParentSetting.

[.NET API Property: LoggingMode]

MaxErrorCount Int32
This value specifies the maximum number of errors allowed to occur before a package is forced to stop running. The default value is 1.

[.NET API Property: MaximumErrorCount]

Name String
Specifies the name of the object. This name can be used to reference this object from anywhere else in the program.

[.NET API Property: Name]

TransactionMode ContainerTransactionMode
This value specifies the transaction context in which this task will execute.

[.NET API Property: TransactionMode]

Singleton Children
  Child API Type Description
<PrecedenceConstraints /> AstTaskflowPrecedenceConstraintsNode
This is a container for task precedence constraint definitions.

[.NET API Property: PrecedenceConstraints]

Collection Children
  Child API Type Description
<Annotations>
    <Annotation />
</Annotations>
AstAnnotationNode
This is a collection of annotation items that can be used to specify documentation, tags, or other information. Annotations are particularly useful for storing information about nodes that can be used by BimlScript code.

[.NET API Property: Annotations]

<Tasks>
    Multiple Choices...
</Tasks>
AstTaskNode
Container for child task definitions.

[.NET API Property: Tasks]

<LogProviders>
    Multiple Choices...
</LogProviders>
AstLogProviderBaseNode
Defines the log providers to use for the SSIS task or container

[.NET API Property: LogProviders]

<Events>
    <Event />
</Events>
AstTaskEventHandlerNode
This is a collection of event handlers that can respond to SQL Server Integration Services events that are raised on this task.

[.NET API Property: Events]

<Expressions>
    <Expression />
</Expressions>
AstPropertyExpressionNode
This is a collection of SSIS expression definitions for property value overrides that are specific to this task, container, or package.

[.NET API Property: Expressions]

<LogEvents>
    <LogEvent />
</LogEvents>
AstLogEventNode
This is a container for log event definitions that are specific to this task, container, or package.

[.NET API Property: LogEvents]

<SsisAnnotations>
    <SsisAnnotation />
</SsisAnnotations>
AstSsisAnnotationNode
This is a collection of SSIS annotations that will be rendered on the SSIS design surface within the parent container object.

[.NET API Property: SsisAnnotations]

<Variables>
    <Variable />
</Variables>
AstVariableNode
This is a container for variable definitions that are specific to this task, container, or package.

[.NET API Property: Variables]
