SPECIFICATIONS
Tool: SAP / Business Warehouse 4 HANA (BW/4HANA) version 7.3 to 7.5 via JCO API
See https://www.sap.com/products/business-warehouse.html
Metadata: [Business Application] Multi-Model, BI Design (OLAP Source)
Component: SapBw version 11.2.0

OVERVIEW
This import bridge imports SAP NetWeaver Business Warehouse (BW) metadata.

REQUIREMENTS
The import bridge relies on the SAP Java Connector (JCo) API libraries to connect and retrieve metadata. Therefore, the JCo libraries must be available on the machine executing this import bridge.

The API communicates with the SAP server over the local network, and the following server ports may be used:
- Dispatcher port: 32NN used by SAP GUI for Windows and Java
- Gateway port: 33NN used for CPIC and RFC communications
- SNC secured Gateway port: 48NN used for CPIC and RFC encrypted communications
(where NN is your SAP Instance number from 00 to 99).
Make sure that your firewall settings allow communications on these ports.

Before using the import bridge, you must configure the SAP BW server by deploying an ABAP RFC function module.
You need an ABAP developer account to create the RFC FunctionModule on the SAP server.
This module responds to queries from the import bridge, to retrieve the necessary metadata.
Supplemental documentation is available explaining how to deploy the RFC function module on the server at:
<InstallDir>/conf/MIRModelBridgeTemplate/SapBw/

The user account requires sufficient permissions to connect to the SAP server and execute the following RFC function modules:
- STFC_CONNECTION (check connectivity)
- RFC_SYSTEM_INFO (check system information)
- OCS_GET_INSTALLED_COMPS (check software versions)
- Z_MITI_BW_DOWNLOAD (main metadata import)
The SAP Java Connector (JCo) libraries may call additional RFC function modules (RFC_PING, RFC_METADATA_GET, ...).
Please consult support note 460089 for details: https://launchpad.support.sap.com/#/notes/460089

Retrieving metadata from the SAP server may take a few hours depending on the volume of metadata, workload of the SAP server, and speed of network between the SAP server and the local machine.
Using the import bridge 'Miscellaneous' parameter it is possible to store the downloaded metadata as text files in a local directory.
Using the import bridge 'Offline metadata directory' parameter it is possible to read the metadata from previously downloaded text files, to speed up import bridge execution, avoiding the delay of downloading from the server again.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: Why does an import containing DataStoreObject and/or InfoObject NavigationAttribute is missing after an successful import?
A: Each Navigation attribute has "On/Off" checkbox in SAP Datastore object UI. This checkbox utilizes the "On/Off" method for the Navigation attribute. Note, that the bridge will only import Navigation attributes if their "On/Off" checkbox is in the "On".

LIMITATIONS
Refer to the current general known limitations at http://metaintegration.com/Products/MIMB/MIMBKnownLimitations.html or bundled in Documentation/ReadMe/MIMBKnownLimitations.html

SUPPORT
Provide a troubleshooting package with:
- the debug log (can be set in the UI or in conf/conf.properties with MIR_LOG_LEVEL=6)
- the metadata backup if available (can be set in the Miscellaneous parameter with -backup option, although this common option is not implemented on all bridges for technical reasons).

Q: How do I provide metadata to the support team to reproduce an issue?
A: Configure the import bridge parameter 'Incremental import=False' and configure the import bridge 'Miscellaneous' parameter to save SAP metadata as text files into a local directory.
Compress the resulting files in a ZIP archive and send to the support team.

JCo library path The import bridge reads metadata from SAP using the Java Connector (JCo) 3.0 API.
Specify in this parameter the directory path where the JCo libraries are located.
This directory should contain for example on Microsoft Windows:
- sapjco3.jar
- sapjco3.dll

Different versions of the JCo libraries are available from SAP, for various operating systems and processor architectures. Make sure that you are using the correct JCo distribution for your environment.
For example, if you use a 32-bit Java JVM on a 32 bits Windows platform, you should use the 32-bit JCo libraries for Intel x86 processor.

For download, licensing and other information, please refer to https://support.sap.com/en/product/connectors/jco.html
DIRECTORY     Mandatory
Mapping configuration file Some Transformations in BW are represented with ABAP code. It is necessary to document these transformations in a mapping configuration file. Specify here the path to the configuration file in the following format:
<Functions>
<Function id="[TransformationId]" objType="TRFN">

KTX  
Incremental import Incremental import only extracts what has changed since the last import. The initial full metadata harvesting (model import) of a very large source system can take a long time. However the extracted metadata are organized as a multi-model, where each model is a unit of change (e.g. Schema of a RDBMS server, or report of BI server). Subsequent model imports are dramatically faster than the initial import as this import bridge will automatically try to detect changes in the source system, in order to only process the modified, added or deleted models and reuse all unchanged metadata from the model cache. Note however that the detection of change is more or less efficient depending on the sources system: e.g. BI servers can quickly provide the list of new, modified or deleted reports, but not all data stores offer a schema level change detection.

'True'
Import only the changes made since the last import

'False'
import all metadata. This option is required after upgrading the import bridge in particular to take full advantage of any additional metadata coverage.

For debugging purpose, the option -cache.clear of the Miscellaneous parameter can be used to clear one model from the cache which is located (by default) in: $HOME/data/MIMB/cache/<BridgeId>/<ModelId>
BOOLEAN
False
True
True  
Miscellaneous INTRODUCTION
Specify miscellaneous options starting with a dash and optionally followed by parameters, e.g.
-connection.cast MyDatabase1="MICROSOFT SQL SERVER"
Some options can be used multiple times if applicable, e.g.
-connection.rename NewConnection1=OldConnection1 -connection.rename NewConnection2=OldConnection2;
As the list of options can become a long string, it is possible to load it from a file which must be located in ${MODEL_BRIDGE_HOME}\data\MIMB\parameters and have the extension .txt. In such case, all options must be defined within that file as the only value of this parameter, e.g.
ETL/Miscellaneous.txt

JAVA ENVIRONMENT OPTIONS
-java.memory <Java Memory's maximum size> (previously -m)

1G by default on 64bits JRE or as set in conf/conf.properties, e.g.
-java.memory 8G
-java.memory 8000M

-java.parameters <Java Runtime Environment command line options> (previously -j)

This option must be the last one in the Miscellaneous parameter as all the text after -java.parameters is passed "as is" to the JRE, e.g.
-java.parameters -Dname=value -Xms1G
The following option must be set when a proxy is used to access internet (this is critical to access https://repo.maven.apache.org/maven2/ and exceptionally a few other tool sites) in order to download the necessary third-party software libraries.
Note: The majority of proxies are concerned with encrypting (HTTPS) the outside (of the company) traffic and trust the inside traffic that can access proxy over HTTP. In this case, an HTTPS request reaches the proxy over HTTP where the proxy HTTPS-encrypts it.
-java.parameters -java.parameters -Dhttp.proxyHost=127.0.0.1 -Dhttp.proxyPort=3128 -Dhttp.proxyUser=user -Dhttp.proxyPassword=pass

MODEL IMPORT OPTIONS
-model.name <model name>

Override the model name, e.g.
-model.name "My Model Name"

-prescript <script name>

This option allows running a script before the bridge execution.
The script must be located in the bin directory (or as specified with M_SCRIPT_PATH in conf/conf.properties), and have .bat or .sh extension.
The script path must not include any parent directory symbol (..).
The script should return exit code 0 to indicate success, or another value to indicate failure.
For example:
-prescript "script.bat arg1 arg2"

-postscript <script name>

This option allows running a script after successful execution of the bridge.
The script must be located in the bin directory (or as specified with M_SCRIPT_PATH in conf/conf.properties), and have .bat or .sh extension.
The script path must not include any parent directory symbol (..).
The script should return exit code 0 to indicate success, or another value to indicate failure.
For example:
-postscript "script.bat arg1 arg2"

-cache.clear

Clears the cache before the import, and therefore will run a full import without incremental harvesting.

If the model was not changed and the -cache.clear parameter is not used (incremental harvesting), then a new version will not be created.
If the model was not changed and the -cache.clear parameter is set (full source import instead of incremental), then a new version will be created.

-backup <directory>

This option allows to save the bridge input metadata for further troubleshooting. The provided <directory> must be empty.

The primary use of this option is for data store import bridges, in particular JDBC based database import bridges.

Note that this option is not operational on some bridges including:
- File based import bridges (as such input files can be used instead)
- DI/BI repository import bridges (as the tool's repository native backup can be used instead)
- Some API based import bridges (e.g. COM based) for technical reasons.

DATA CONNECTION OPTIONS
Data Connections are produced by the import bridges typically from ETL/DI and BI tools to refer to the source and target data stores they use. These data connections are then used by metadata management tools to connect them (metadata stitching) to their actual data stores (e.g. databases, file system, etc.) in order to produce the full end to end data flow lineage and impact analysis. The name of each data connection is unique by import model. The data connection names used within DI/BI design tools are used when possible, otherwise connection names are generated to be short but meaningful such as the database / schema name, the file system path, or Uniform Resource Identifier (URI). The following option allows to manipulate connections. These options replaces the legacy options -c, -cd, and -cs.

-connection.cast ConnectionName=ConnectionType

Casts a generic database connection (e.g. ODBC/JDBC) to a precise database type (e.g. ORACLE) for SQL Parsing, e.g.
-connection.cast "My Database"="MICROSOFT SQL SERVER".
The list of supported data store connection types includes:
ACCESS
APACHE CASSANDRA
DB2/UDB
DENODO
GOOGLE BIGQUERY
HIVE
MYSQL
NETEZZA
ORACLE
POSTGRESQL
PRESTO
REDSHIFT
SALESFORCE
SAP HANA
SNOWFLAKE
MICROSOFT SQL AZURE
MICROSOFT SQL SERVER
SYBASE SQL SERVER
SYBASE AS ENTERPRISE
TERADATA
VECTORWISE
HP VERTICA

-connection.rename OldConnection=NewConnection

Renames an existing connection to a new name, e.g.
-connection.rename OldConnectionName=NewConnectionName
Multiple existing database connections can be renamed and merged into one new database connection, e.g.
-connection.rename MySchema1=MyDatabase -connection.rename MySchema2=MyDatabase

-connection.split oldConnection.Schema1=newConnection

Splits a database connection into one or multiple database connections.
A single database connection can be split into one connection per schema, e.g.
-connection.split MyDatabase
All database connections can be split into one connection per schema, e.g.
-connection.split *
A database connection can be explicitly split creating a new database connection by appending a schema name to a database, e.g.
-connection.split MyDatabase.schema1=MySchema1

-connection.map SourcePath=DestinationPath

Maps a source path to destination path. This is useful for file system connections when different paths points to the same object (directory or file).
On Hadoop, a process can write into a CSV file specified with the HDFS full path, but another process reads from a Hive table implemented (external) by the same file specified using a relative path with default file name and extension, e.g.
-connection.map /user1/folder=hdfs://host:8020/users/user1/folder/file.csv
On Linux, a given directory (or file) like /data can be referred to by multiple symbolic links like /users/john and /users/paul, e.g.
-connection.map /data=/users/John -connection.map /data=/users/paul
On Windows, a given directory like C:\data can be referred to by multiple network drives like M: and N:, e.g.
-connection.map C:\data=M:\ -connection.map C:\data=N:\

-connection.casesensitive ConnectionName

Overrides the default case insensitive matching rules for the object identifiers inside the specified connection, provided the detected type of the data store by itself supports this configuration (e.g. Microsoft SQL Server, MySql etc.), e.g.
-connection.casesensitive "My Database"

-connection.level AggregationLevel

Specifies the aggregation level for the external connections, e.g.-connection.level catalog
The list of the supported values:
server
catalog
schema (default)

SAP OPTIONS
-jco.file <file path>

Specify path to file with additional connection details such as the SNC connection details.
The import bridge appends parameters specified in the import bridge configuration to the file before passing it to the Java Connector (JCo).
Such JCo file is a plain text file, and contains for example:
jco.client.snc_mode=1
jco.client.snc_partnername=p:CN=POT, OU=SAP
jco.client.snc_qop=3
jco.client.snc_myname=p:CN=JCO3, O=SAP, C=DE
jco.client.snc_lib=C:\\JCO_SNC\\64bit\\SAPCRYPTOLIBP\\sapcrypto.dll
For more details configuring SNC, please consult SAP support, for example:
