Connect to Microsoft SQL Server
Configure the Microsoft SQL Server database connection settings, specifying the following:
|Server address||The URL to connect to the Microsoft SQL Server database server.|
|Port||The port number to connect to the Microsoft SQL Server database server. The default is
|Database name||The name of the Microsoft SQL Server database to connect to.|
|Username||Your username to access the Microsoft SQL Server database.|
|Password||A managed entry representing your Microsoft SQL Server login password. Choose an existing password from the dropdown menu or click Manage and then click Add new password to configure a new managed password entry. Give the password a label, which is what you can see in the password dropdown menu, and then input the value of the password. Read Manage Passwords to learn more.|

Click Continue with X tables to move forward.
Choose the columns from each table to include in the pipeline. By default, Matillion Data Loader selects all columns from a table.
Click Configure on a table to open Configure table. This dialog lists columns in a table and the data type of each column. Additionally, you can set a primary key and assign an incremental column state to a column.
- Primary Key columns should represent a true
PRIMARY KEYthat uniquely identifies each record in a table. Composite keys work, but you must specify all columns that compose the key. Based on the primary key, this won't permit duplicate records. Jobs may fail or replicate data incorrectly if these rules aren't applied.
- Make sure an Incremental column is a true change data capture (CDC) column that can identify whether there has been a change for reach record in the table. This column should be a TIMESTAMP/DATE/DATETIME type or an INTEGER type representing a date key or UNIX timestamp.
Click Add and remove columns to modify a table before a load. Use the arrow buttons to move columns out of the Columns to extract and load listbox. Order columns with click-and-drag. Select multiple columns using
Click Done adding and removing to continue and then click Done.

|Pipeline name||A descriptive label for your pipeline. This is how the pipeline appears on the pipeline dashboard and how Matillion Data Loader refers to the pipeline.|
|Sync every||The frequency at which the pipeline should sync. Day values include 1—7. Hour values include 1—23. Minute values include 5—59. The input is also the length of delay before the first sync.|
Currently, you can't specify a start time.
Once you are happy with your pipeline configuration, click Create pipeline to complete the process and add the pipeline to your dashboard.
