Export Data from SQL Server to SAP ByDesign through SSIS

Easily push SQL Server data to SAP ByDesign using the CData SSIS Tasks for SAP ByDesign.

SQL Server databases are commonly used to store enterprise records. It is often necessary to move this data to other locations. The CData SSIS Task for SAP ByDesign allows you to easily transfer SAP ByDesign data. In this article you will export data from SQL Server to SAP ByDesign.

Add Source and Destination Components

To get started, add a new ADO.NET Source control and a new SAP ByDesign Destination control to the data flow task.

Configure the ADO.NET Source

Follow the steps below to specify properties required to connect to the SQL Server instance.

  1. Open the ADO.NET Source and add a new connection. Enter your server and database information here.
  2. In the Data access mode menu, select "Table or view" and select the table or view to export into SAP ByDesign.
  3. Close the ADO NET Source wizard and connect it to the destination component.

Create a New Connection Manager for SAP ByDesign

Follow the steps below to set required connection properties in the Connection Manager.

  1. Create a new connection manager: In the Connection Manager window, right-click and then click New Connection. The Add SSIS Connection Manager dialog is displayed.
  2. Select CData SAPByDesign Connection Manager in the menu.
  3. Configure the connection properties.

    Set the following connection properties to connect to SAP ByDesign.

    • Url: Set this to the Url of your SAP ByDesign site. For example, https://test.sapbydesign.com
    • User: Set this to the username of your account.
    • Password: Set this to the password of your account.
    • CustomService or AnalyticsService: Only one of these must be specified. If you have a custom service you want to retrieve data from, specify CustomService. If you want to retrieve the reports of a analytical service, specify AnalyticsService.
      If neither is specified, 'cc_home_analytics.svc' will used as a default for the AnalyticsService property. If you are not sure what service to specify, you can always query the Services view to list available services.

Configure the SAP ByDesign Destination

In the destination component Connection Manager, define mappings from the SQL Server source table into the SAP ByDesign destination table and the action you want to perform on the SAP ByDesign data. In this article, you will insert [Inventory Balance] entities to SAP ByDesign.

  1. Double-click the SAP ByDesign destination to open the destination component editor.
  2. In the Connection Managers tab, select the connection manager previously created.
  3. In the Use a Table, menu, select [Inventory Balance]. In the Action menu, select Insert.
  4. On the Column Mappings tab, configure the mappings from the input columns to the destination columns.

Run the Project

You can now run the project. After the SSIS Task has finished executing, data from your SQL table will be exported to the chosen table.
