These properties are used to configure tELTSAPMap running in the Standard Job framework.

The Standard tELTSAPMap component belongs to the ELT family.

The component in this framework is available in all subscription-based Talend products.

Basic settings

Property Type

Either Built-In or Repository.

  • Built-In: No property data stored centrally.

  • Repository: Select the repository file where the properties are stored.

Use an existing connection

Select this check box and from the list displayed select the relevant connection component to reuse the connection details you have already defined.

Note: When a Job contains the parent Job and the child Job, if you need to share an existing connection between the two levels, for example, to share the connection created by the parent Job with the child Job, you have to:
  1. In the parent level, register the database connection to be shared in the Basic settings view of the connection component which creates that very database connection.

  2. In the child level, use a dedicated connection component to read that registered database connection.

For an example about how to share a database connection across Job levels, see Talend Studio User Guide.

SAP Map Editor

The ELT Map editor allows you to define the output schema and build graphically the SQL statement to be executed. The column names of schema can be different from the column names in the SAP system.

Server Type

Select the type of the SAP server to be connected, either Application Server or Message Server.

Client

The SAP system client ID.

UserId and Password

The user connection ID and password.

To enter the password, click the [...] button next to the password field, and then in the pop-up dialog box enter the password between double quotes and click OK to save the settings.

Language

The language of the SAP system.

Host name

The name or IP address of the host on which the SAP server is running.

System number

The SAP system number.

This property is available only when Application Server is selected from the Server Type drop-down list.

System ID

The SAP system ID.

This property is available only when Message Server is selected from the Server Type drop-down list.

Group Name

The SAP group name.

This property is available only when Message Server is selected from the Server Type drop-down list.

Specify the maximum number of records that can be written in each file generated by the SAP system.

FTP host

Specify the IP address or the host name of the FTP server.

FTP port

Specify the listening port number of the FTP server.

FTP user and FTP password

Specify the user authentication data to access the FTP server.

To enter the password, click the [...] button next to the password field, and then in the pop-up dialog box enter the password between double quotes and click OK to save the settings.

FTP directory

Specify the directory where the files generated by the SAP system will be saved.

Data filename prefix

Specify the prefix of the files generated by the SAP system.

Specify a shared destination

Select this check box and specify the shared destination in the Shared destination name field displayed. The shared destination allows the SAP components to use the shared destination on the Talend Runtime when they are executed as part of an ESB Route or ESB Data Service within the Talend Runtime container OSGi Environment.

Besides specifying the shared destination name in the component, you also need to setup the SAP DataSource for the Talend Runtime. What you need to do to define the SAP DataSource and how to configure it are described in the readme.txt provided in the Talend ESB package within the /add-ons/datasource/sap folder.

Note that if you use the component's own connection configuration, your SAP connection will be closed at the end of the component. To prevent this from happening, use a shared destination with its name specified.

Advanced settings
