Easily map OptionSet using CRM OptionSet Mapping Editor in SSIS


Just want to share my experience of using KingswaySoft’s OptionSet Mapping Editor and how easy and efficient it makes to migrate data in Microsoft Dynamics 365 CE.

Here our SQL (OLE DB Source) was having following values for Phone Code field. Here we are doing upsert for the Contact entity.

However inside CRM, we were only maintaining or dealing with few of the values as shown below for the corresponding field.

To deal with this situation, inside SSIS Package, drag the Dynamics CRM OptionSet Mapping component.

In General page, specify the input column of the table and for target properties, specify the CRM Connection Manager, Entity and the field to which we are mapping the input to.

Here we need to explicitly define input value and option set value mapping, for each of the option set values for the field inside CRM, because the source doesn’t have the “+” appended to it i.e. unmatched values only.

Here we have defined the mapping

Now for the extra values that source have, we want it to map it to Others option set value inside CRM.

For this in Action Drop-Down select “Replace as an existing option” and in “Replace as” select the Others option set value.

If we want to create the missing input value as an option set value we can use Create Option Action

  • Set as empty will simply ignore the unmatched input values and would pass blank for them.
  • Leave it as is will not do any manipulation and will pass the input values as it is.
  • Raise an error as the name suggests will throw an exception.

  1. Hi Nishant,

    I am new to Kingswaysoft and facing an issue. My source optionset has two values
    Value-96637000 text- Plant
    Value-96637001 text- Depot

    and target has as mentioned below
    Value-1 text- Plant
    Value-2 text- Depot

    I am getting the error that value is too large for target optionset. and not able to do the mapping with optionset mapping control as my text values are same. it automatically removes that mapping as text values are same.

    What should the probable solution?

      1. We only need to use that optionset mapping component if the values are different (labels) or we want to handle non matching values in specific manner, else we can directly map them inside CRM Destination Component.

  3. Hi Nishant,
    I tried the same way , value is not replacing.
    source has; (option set)
    Company1 123
    Company2 456

    target has; (option set)
    Company1 6
    Company2 7

    Now, i used the input value as ‘6’ againt optionset value ‘Company1’
    Nothing is changing here
