SAP HANA is an in-memory computing platform that can be deployed on premises or on the cloud. It features high-performance data queries. DataWorks provides SAP HANA Reader and SAP HANA Writer for you to read data from and write data to SAP HANA data sources. You can use the codeless user interface (UI) or code editor to configure synchronization nodes for SAP HANA data sources.

Limits

RestAPI data sources support only exclusive resource groups for Data Integration. For more information, see Create and use an exclusive resource group for Data Integration.

Procedure

Workspaces in standard mode support the data source isolation feature. You can add data sources separately for the development and production environments to isolate the data sources. This helps keep your data secure. For more information, see Isolate connections between the development and production environments.

If you use a DataWorks workspace in standard mode, perform the following steps to add data sources separately for the development and production environments:

  1. Go to the Data Source page.
    1. Log on to the DataWorks console.
    2. In the left-side navigation pane, click Workspaces.
    3. After you select the region where the required workspace resides, find the workspace and click Data Integration in the Actions column.
    4. In the left-side navigation pane of the Data Integration page, choose Data Source > Data Sources to go to the Data Source page.
  2. On the Data Source page, click Add data source in the upper-right corner.
  3. In the Add data source dialog box, click SAP HANA in the Relational Database section.
  4. In the Add SAP HANA data source dialog box, configure the parameters.

    Parameter Description
    Data Source Name The name of the data source. The name can contain letters, digits, and underscores (_) and must start with a letter.
    Data source description The description of the data source. The description can be a maximum of 80 characters in length.
    Environment The environment in which the data source is used. Valid values: Development and Production.
    Note This parameter is displayed only when the workspace is in standard mode.
    JDBC URL The Java Database Connectivity (JDBC) URL of the database. Specify this parameter in the format of jdbc:sap://host:Port?currentschema=SCHEMA.
    Username The username that is used to connect to the database.
    Password The password that is used to connect to the database.
  5. Set Resource Group connectivity to Data Integration.
  6. Find the desired resource group in the resource group list in the lower part of the dialog box and click Test connectivity in the Actions column.
    A synchronization node can use only one type of resource group. To ensure that your synchronization nodes can be normally run, you must test the connectivity of all the resource groups for Data Integration on which your synchronization nodes will be run. If you want to test the connectivity of multiple resource groups for Data Integration at a time, select the resource groups and click Batch test connectivity. For more information, see Select a network connectivity solution.
    Note You can use only exclusive resource groups. For more information about exclusive resource groups for Data Integration, see Create and use an exclusive resource group for Data Integration.
  7. After the data source passes the connectivity test, click Complete.

What to do next

After you add a RestAPI data source, you can configure a synchronization node for the data source by using the codeless user interface (UI) or code editor.
