SAP Adaptive Server Enterprise SSH Connector

Version 5

 

Intro

SAP ASE (Adaptive Server Enterprise), formerly known as Sybase SQL Server, is a relational model database server product for businesses. Use Domo's SAP Adaptive Server Enterprise SSH connector to retrieve data from an SAP database via an SSH tunnel by inputting an SQL query. To learn more about SAP Adaptive Server Enterprise, visit their page (https://www.sap.com/products/sybase-ase.html).

You connect to a SAP Adaptive Server Enterprise database in the Data Center. This topic discusses the fields and menus that are specific to the SAP Adaptive Server Enterprise SSH connector user interface. General information for adding DataSets, setting update schedules, and editing DataSet information is discussed in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

Prerequisites

To connect to an SAP Adaptive Server Enterprise database and create a DataSet, you must have the following:

  • The username and password you use to log into your SAP Adaptive Server Enterprise account

  • The host name for the database

  • The port number for the database

  • The database name

  • The SSH hostname

  • The username and password for the SSH user

  • The SSH port number

  • The SSH private key 

Before you can connect to an SAP database, you must also whitelist a number of IP addresses on your database server on the port you want to connect to. For the full list of IP addresses, see Whitelisting IP Addresses for Connectors.

Connecting to an SAP Adaptive Server Enterprise Database

This section enumerates the options in the Credentials and Details panes in the SAP Adaptive Server Enterprise SSH Connector page. The components of the other panes in this page, Scheduling and Name & Describe Your DataSet, are universal across most connector types and are discussed in greater length in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

Credentials Pane

This pane contains fields for entering credentials to connect to your SAP Adaptive Server Enterprise account. The following table describes what is needed for each field:  

Field

Description

SSH Host

Enter the SSH hostname.

SSH User

Enter the username for your SSH user.

SSH Password

Enter the password for your SSH user.

SSH Port

Enter the SSH port number.

SSH Private Key

Enter the SSH private key.

Username

Enter your SAP Adaptive Server Enterprise account username.

Password

Enter your SAP Adaptive Server Enterprise account password.

Host

Enter the host name for the SAP database. For example: db.company.com

Port

Enter the port number for the database.

Database

Enter the name of the database.

Once you have entered valid SAP Adaptive Server Enterprise credentials, you can use the same account any time you go to create a new SAP Adaptive Server Enterprise SSH DataSet. You can manage connector accounts in the Accounts tab in the Data Center. For more information about this tab, see Managing User Accounts for Connectors.

Details Pane

In this pane you create an SQL query to pull data from your database. The Query parameter is required. The other three parameters are here to help you construct this query if you choose.

Menu

Description

Query

Enter the Structured Query Language (SQL) query to use in selecting the data you want. For example:

select * from Employee

If you want help in constructing your query, 

Database Table (Optional)

Select the table containing the data you want to pull into Domo. The selected table will be added to the automatically generated query in the Query Helper field. 

Table Columns (Optional)

Select the table columns with data you want to pull into Domo. The selected columns will be added to the automatically generated query in the Query Helper field. 

Query Helper (Optional)

Copy and paste this query into the Query field if you need help building a query. This query is automatically generated when you select a table and columns in the Database Table and Table Columns fields, respectively.

Other Panes
