Create and Schedule a SSIS Job in SQL Server

In this session, we are going discuss how to create a SQL job, connect the Job with a SSIS package, and schedule the job on the server.

Before we get started, if you want to know about the SSIS package implementation using SQL Server, please go through the following article: 


Follow the below steps to create a new job.

  • Open the SQL Server Management Studio on Windows and you should have the “SQL Server Agent” to implement the automated jobs.
  • Expand the “SQL Server Agent” in Object Explorer.
  • Right click on the Jobs and select the “New Job…”
  • You can see the “New Job” window


Here, you should give a valid name for the new job. And then click on “OK” button.


Finally, you can see that the job has been created on the “SQL Server Agent” list.

Once this is done, right click on the SQL Agent and refresh it.

Find the below screenshot for your reference (The job has been created).

Then click on “Property” option to set the job configurations.
