The RSS Task consumes RSS feeds and translates them into item batches for your SSIS Package.
Really Simple Syndication (RSS) is a popular and widely used syndication format. The RSS Task extends your SSIS Package with the ability to consume any syndicated content that uses the RSS format.
RSS Receive Task
The RSS Receive Task is a simple RSS client that can fetch a publicly syndicated feed. Each individual RSS item in the feed is pulled out and treated as its own message, and the task will submit the feed as a batch composed of these messages.
The target feed is specified by FeedURL. If the PollingInterval is set to a low value, the task can potentially submit multiple duplications of the same message by fetching the same copy of the target feed. To ensure that this does not happen, the task requires that a CacheFile and CachePeriod be set so that the task can keep track the incoming RSS items.
