I am going to echo another question almost exactly, only my question has a different objective:

In Job Step > Properties, only see two tabs: Package and Configuration

I am trying to set a job step that executes a package requiring a package password, since the package protection level is set to EncryptSensitiveWithPassword. The job is running on SQL Server 2014. I see all kinds of examples of how to do this, where the job step properties page has 9 tabs (Set Values, Verification, Command Line, General, Configurations, Command Files, Data Sources, Execution Options and Logging). Command Line allows me to enter the password (with the /DECRYPT command line option).

When I look at my job step, logged in to the server as an Admin, running SSMS as administrator, all I see are two tabs: Package and Configuration. I deployed the packages using the Project Deployment method. How do I get those other tabs to show up?

(My ultimate goal is to give the SQL Agent who runs the job access to a MySQL DB password, and I understand setting the package protection level to EncryptSensistiveWithPassword is the correct way to do that, but I cannot find another way to provide the package password.)


In the job step properties after selecting SQL Server Integration Services Package as the type, switch Package source to SSIS Package Store to get the 9 tabs. SSIS Catalog is the default and only has 2 tabs.

SSIS Package Store:

SSIS Catalog (the default):
