CData Sync



Replicate multiple SAP Fieldglass accounts to one or many databases.

CData Sync for SAP Fieldglass is a stand-alone application that provides solutions for a variety of replication scenarios such as replicating sandbox and production instances into your database. Both Sync for Windows and Sync for Java include a command-line interface (CLI) that makes it easy to manage multiple SAP Fieldglass connections. In this article we show how to use the CLI to replicate multiple SAP Fieldglass accounts.

Configure SAP Fieldglass Connections

You can save connection and email notification settings in an XML configuration file. To replicate multiple SAP Fieldglass accounts, use multiple configuration files. Below is an example configuration to replicate SAP Fieldglass to SQLite:

Windows

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?> <CDataSync> <DatabaseType>SQLite</DatabaseType> <DatabaseProvider>System.Data.SQLite</DatabaseProvider> <ConnectionString>EnvironmentURL='https://myinstance.com';Username=myuser;Password=mypassword;APIKey=xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx;</ConnectionString> <ReplicateAll>False</ReplicateAll> <NotificationUserName></NotificationUserName> <DatabaseConnectionString>Data Source=C:\my.db</DatabaseConnectionString> <TaskSchedulerStartTime>09:51</TaskSchedulerStartTime> <TaskSchedulerInterval>Never</TaskSchedulerInterval> </CDataSync>

Java

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?> <CDataSync> <DatabaseType>SQLite</DatabaseType> <DatabaseProvider>org.sqlite.JDBC</DatabaseProvider> <ConnectionString>EnvironmentURL='https://myinstance.com';Username=myuser;Password=mypassword;APIKey=xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx;</ConnectionString> <ReplicateAll>False</ReplicateAll> <NotificationUserName></NotificationUserName> <DatabaseConnectionString>Data Source=C:\my.db</DatabaseConnectionString> </CDataSync>

To authenticate, you will need to specify the Username, Password, APIKey, and EnvironmentURL connection properties.

To obtain an APIKey, log in to the SAP API Business Hub and click on Get API Key.

Configure Queries for Each SAP Fieldglass Instance

Sync enables you to control replication with standard SQL. The REPLICATE statement is a high-level command that caches and maintains a table in your database. You can define any SELECT query supported by the SAP Fieldglass API. The statement below caches and incrementally updates a table of SAP Fieldglass data:

REPLICATE AuditTrails;

You can specify a file containing the replication queries you want to use to update a particular database. Separate replication statements with semicolons. The following options are useful if you are replicating multiple SAP Fieldglass accounts into the same database:

You can use a different table prefix in the REPLICATE SELECT statement:

REPLICATE PROD_AuditTrails SELECT * FROM AuditTrails

Alternatively, you can use a different schema:

REPLICATE PROD.AuditTrails SELECT * FROM AuditTrails

Run Sync

After you have configured the connection strings and replication queries, you can run Sync with the following command-line options:

Windows

SAPFieldglassSync.exe -g MyProductionSAPFieldglassConfig.xml -f MyProductionSAPFieldglassSync.sql

Java

java -Xbootclasspath/p:c:\sqlitejdbc.jar -jar SAPFieldglassSync.jar -g MyProductionSAPFieldglassConfig.xml -f MyProductionSAPFieldglassSync.sql
