Bridge Parameters

Parameter Name Description Type Values Default Scope
Driver location Enter the location of the jdbc jar files for the underlying database type. E.g., for SQL Server you may use sqljdbc42.jar. You may specify any directory you have permissions to read from. STRING     Mandatory
JDBC URL Enter the jdbc url where SAP Repository Data Base is running.
jdbc:sqlserver://SAPHOST:1433;database=SAP_01 OR
STRING   jdbc:sqlserver://localhost:1433 Mandatory
User Enter the user name on whose behalf the connection is being made. This username should have permissions to execute SELECT statements on the AL_COLMAP_TEXT and AL_COLMAP tables. It should NOT be a SAP DataServices native user. It must be a database user. STRING     Mandatory
Password The user's password on whose behalf the connection is being made PASSWORD     Mandatory
Data Flows Description: you can specify a list of data flows to import.
When the list is empty all available data flows are imported.
The list can have one or more data flow names separated by semicolons (e.g. dataflow1; dataflow2).
Patterns support inclusions and exclusions.
Here is an example of inclusion syntax, "A%; %B; %C%; D" that tries to get data flow names that:
- start with A or
- end with B or
- contain C or
- equal D

To exclude a pattern prefix it with 'NOT'. Here is an example of exclusion syntax, "A%; %B; NOT %SYS; NOT 'SYS%'"
that contributes to the following SQL filter: "where (name like A% or name like %B) and (name not like %SYS) and (name not like 'SYS%')"
