"Do nothing" Task

"Do nothing" Task

"Do nothing" Task


I want to make a first step preexecution event handle.
But later perhaps the first task will not to be the first task.
So I thought I do a "Do nothing" Dummy task and link to this the event handler.
But how can I do this "Do nothing" step? I didn't found like this task.


RE: "Do nothing" Task

few options

create a sequence container - don't put anything on it
create a script task - don't need to have anything on it.
create a sql task - put "set nocount on" on it -- not the best one as it does require a sql connection

but better yet set up proper flow logging on your package and add a task to log start/end and intermediary steps to a logging database so you can see easily what/where/when was going on on your package. you could inclusive log the supplied parameters/variables supplied to the package and those that change within the execution of the package (and SSISDB catalog although would do part of this it also has its limitations)
