SSIS - Create Log File for SSIS Package Execution With DateTime [ SSIS Logging ]


We have created a SSIS Package. Now we want to enable Logging for our Package and want to create a log file ( Text File Logging) each time the package executes. The Log file name should look like "PackageName_Date_Time.log".


SSIS provides different types of logging such as 
  • Text File Logging
  • SQL Server Profiler
  • SQL Server
  • Windows Event Log
  • XML File
For more details please visit 

In our case we will be using Text File Logging. Let's start

Step 1: 
You can go to SSIS menu and then choose Logging Or right click inside Control Flow Pane and choose Logging as shown below


Step 2: 
Choose the Log provider, In our case we are using Text File Logging

Step 3: 
Create Connection for Log file as shown below

Step 4: 
Choose the containers , Tasks for which you want to enable logging

Step 5: 
Choose the events for each of the task or container you want to save in log file. For more details about events visit the link that I provided in Solution section

Step 6: 
If we run our package now, it is going to create a log file on desktop for us with the name MylogFile.txt. But our goal is not to generate a log file like that. We want to create a log file in PackageLogFiles Folder with PackageName and Datetime.

Create a variable VarLogFolderPath and save the path of folder where you want to save the log files.

Step 7:
Create expression for our Log File Name for each execution. Go to MyLogFile Connection Manager and Right Click on it. Go to properties and then expression and write expressions as shown

Expression :
@[User::VarLogFolderPath]+"\\"+ @[System::PackageName]+"_"+Replace(Replace(Replace(SUBSTRING((DT_WSTR,50)(GETDATE()),1,16),"-","")," ","_"),":","")+".log"

Note : 
As you have noticed that I did not save the time till seconds level. If I will do that , SSIS will create multiple log files , couple of them while validation. To avoid that I am creating log file with YYYYMMDD_HHMM.

Final Output : 
Let's run our SSIS Package couple of times and check the Log File Folder.Wow!! the log files are created for each execution of SSIS Package.
