Automated Continuous SAP Netweaver Gateway Replication to Amazon Redshift

Use CData Sync for automated, continuous, customizable SAP Netweaver Gateway replication to Amazon Redshift.

Always-on applications rely on automatic failover capabilities and real-time data access. CData Sync integrates live SAP Netweaver Gateway data into your Amazon Redshift instance, allowing you to consolidate all of your data into a single location for archiving, reporting, analytics, machine learning, artificial intelligence and more.

Configure Amazon Redshift as a Replication Destination

Using CData Sync, you can replicate SAP Netweaver Gateway data to Amazon Redshift. To add a replication destination, navigate to the Connections tab.

  1. Click Add Connection.
  2. Select Amazon Redshift as a destination.
  3. Enter the necessary connection properties. To connect to Amazon Redshift, set the following:
    • Server: Set this to the host name or IP address of the cluster hosting the Database you want to connect to.
    • Port: Set this to the port of the cluster.
    • Database: Set this to the name of the database. Or, leave this blank to use the default database of the authenticated user.
    • User: Set this to the username you want to use to authenticate to the Server.
    • Password: Set this to the password you want to use to authenticate to the Server.

    You can obtain these values values in the AWS Management Console:

    1. Open the Amazon Redshift console.
    2. On the Clusters page, click the name of the cluster.
    3. On the Configuration tab, obtain the properties from the Cluster Database Properties section. The connection property values will be the same as the values set in the ODBC URL.

  4. Click Test Connection to ensure that the connection is configured properly.
  5. Click Save Changes.

Configure the SAP Netweaver Gateway Connection

You can configure a connection to SAP Netweaver Gateway from the Connections tab. To add a connection to your SAP Netweaver Gateway account, navigate to the Connections tab.

  1. Click Add Connection.
  2. Select a source (SAP Netweaver Gateway).
  3. Configure the connection properties.

    SAP Gateway allows both basic and OAuth 2.0 authentication. You can use basic authentication to connect to your own account, or you can use OAuth to enable other users to retrieve data from your service with their accounts. In addition to authenticating, set the following connection properties to access SAP Gateway tables.

    • Url: Set this to the URL of your environment, or to the full URL of the service. For example, the full URL might appear as: https://sapes5.sapdevcenter.com/sap/opu/odata/IWBEP/GWSAMPLE_BASIC/. In this example, the environment URL would just be: https://sapes5.sapdevcenter.com.
    • Namespace: Set the appropriate Service Namespace. In the example above, IWBEP is the namespace. It is optional if the full URL to the service is specified.
    • Service: Set this to the service you want to retrieve data from. In the example above, the service is GWSAMPLE_BASIC. It is not required if the full URL is specified.

    Authenticate via Basic Authentication

    In basic authentication, you use your login credentials to connect. Set the following properties:

    • User: This is the username you use to log in to SAP Gateway.
    • Password: This is the password you use to log in to SAP Gateway.

    Authenticate via OAuth Authentication

    You can connect to SAP Gateway using the embedded OAuth connectivity (without setting any additional authentication connection properties). When you connect, the OAuth endpoint opens in your browser. Log in and grant permissions to complete the OAuth process. See the OAuth section in the online Help documentation for more information on other OAuth authentication flows.

  4. Click Connect to ensure that the connection is configured properly.
  5. Click Save Changes.

Configure Replication Queries

CData Sync enables you to control replication with a point-and-click interface and with SQL queries. For each replication you wish to configure, navigate to the Jobs tab and click Add Job. Select the Source and Destination for your replication.

Replicate Entire Tables

To replicate an entire table, click Add Tables in the Tables section, choose the table(s) you wish to replicate, and click Add Selected Tables.

Customize Your Replication

You can use the Transform feature to customize your replication. The Transform feature allows you to specify which columns to replicate, rename the columns at the destination, and even perform operations on the source data before replicating. To customize your replication, click the Transform button in the Tables section and customize the replication.

Schedule Your Replication

In the Schedule section, you can schedule a job to run automatically, configuring the job to run after specified intervals ranging from once every 15 minutes to once every month.

Once you have configured the replication job, click Save Changes. You can configure any number of jobs to manage the replication of your SAP Netweaver Gateway data to Amazon Redshift.
