SSIS - generate deployment manifest file

Creating a Deployment Manifest

  • With the Solution Explorer open Right-Click on the project name and click Properties
  • This will open the Project Properties Pages
  • Select the Deployment Utilityfrom the page
  • Change the CreateDeploymentUtility property to True

After you’ve gone through these steps the next time you build your project it will create the file (YourProjectName).SSISDeploymentManifest. This file is located in the same folder as your packages in the bin\Deployment folder.

If you run this file it will open the Package Installation Wizard that will allow you to deploy all your packages that were located in the project to a desired location.
