Sybase Partition Connector

Version 2

 

Intro

SAP ASE (Adaptive Server Enterprise), originally known as Sybase SQL Server, is a relational model database server product for businesses. With Sybase Partition connector, see your SAP Adaptive Server Enterprise data together with the data from other systems, all in Domo. Use partitioning to manage large tables and indexes by dividing them into smaller, more manageable pieces. Use Domo's Sybase Partition connector to get your SAP ASE data into Domo based on the number of past days provided. To learn more about SAP Adaptive Server Enterprise, visit their page (https://www.sap.com/products/sybase-ase.html#).

You connect to your SAP Adaptive Server Enterprise account in the Data Center. This topic discusses the fields and menus that are specific to the Sybase Partition 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 your SAP ASE account 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

  • CA certificate text or URL path is required only if you select Certificate text or URL path, respectively, in the Certificate type menu.

Before you can connect to a SAP database, you must also white list 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 Your SAP ASE Account

This section enumerates the options in the Credentials and Details panes in the Sybase Partition 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 ASE account. The following table describes what is needed for each field:
