SAP HANA XS Advanced SSIS Components

Powerful SSIS Source & Destination Components that allows you to easily connect SQL Server with SAP HANA XS Advanced through SSIS Workflows.

Use the SAP HANA XS Advanced Data Flow Components to synchronize with SAP HANA. Perfect for data synchronization, local back-ups, workflow automation, and more!



Easily push SQL Server data to SAP HANA XS Advanced using the CData SSIS Components. This example uses an SSIS workflow to either insert new records into SAP HANA XS Advanced or update existing records with data from a SQL Server database.

SQL Server databases are commonly used to store enterprise records. It is often necessary to move this data to other locations. The CData SSIS Components for SAP HANA XS Advanced allow you to easily transfer data from SQL Server to SAP HANA XS Advanced.

This article demonstrates how to use the CData SSIS Components for SAP HANA XS Advanced inside of a SQL Server Integration Services workflow to export data from SQL Server to SAP HANA XS Advanced, utilizing a lookup component to find and update any existing records or insert new records.

Add the Components

To get started, add a new OLE DB source, CData SAP HANA XS Advanced lookup, and two CData SAP HANA XS Advanced destinations (one to handle a lookup with a match and one to handle a lookup without a match) to a new data flow task.

Configure the OLE DB Source

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

  1. Open the OLE DB 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 HANA XS Advanced.
  3. Close the OLE DB Source wizard and connect it to the CData SAP HANA XS Advanced Destination.

Create a New Connection Manager for SAP HANA XS Advanced

Follow the steps below to save 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. In the Connection Manager type menu, select the CData SAP HANA XS Advanced Connection Manager.
  3. Configure the connection properties. A typical SAP HANA XS Advanced connection requires:
    • User
    • Password
    • AccessToken

Configure the SAP HANA XS Advanced Lookup

In the lookup component Transform Editor, define mappings from the SQL Server source table into the SAP HANA XS Advanced lookup table.

  1. Double-click the SAP HANA XS Advanced lookup to open the lookup component editor.
  2. In the Connection tab, select the Connection manager previously created.
  3. On the Connection tab, specify the Connection manager (or create a new one) and the table into which the data will be upserted. In this case, you will transfer Account records.
  4. On the Columns tab, configure the mapping of the primary key from the input columns to the primary key of the lookup columns.

Configure the SAP HANA XS Advanced Destinations

Using the lookup component, you know which entries from the data source already exist in SAP HANA XS Advanced and which ones are new. Configure two SAP HANA XS Advanced components to handle the situation where a match is found and a match is not found.

Lookup Match Destination

If the lookup component returns a match, update the existing record in SAP HANA XS Advanced.

  1. Map the Lookup Match Output to a SAP HANA XS Advanced destination component.
  2. Double-click the SAP HANA XS Advanced destination to open the destination component editor.
  3. In the Connection Manager tab, select the Connection manager previously created.
  4. Specify the table which will be updated and set the Action to "Update."
  5. On the Column Mappings tab, configure the mappings from the input columns to the destination columns (be sure to map the SQL Server primary key column to the SAP HANA XS Advanced primary key column).

Lookup No Match Destination

If the lookup component does not return a match, add a new record to SAP HANA XS Advanced.

  1. Map the Lookup No Match Output to a SAP HANA XS Advanced destination component.
  2. Double-click the SAP HANA XS Advanced destination to open the destination component editor.
  3. In the Connection Manager tab, select the Connection manager previously created.
  4. Specify the table into which the new record will be inserted and set the Action to "Insert."
  5. 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.
