SAP ODP sources in mappings

To read data from an SAP S/4HANA application, configure an SAP ODP object as the Source transformation in a mapping.
Specify the name and description of the SAP ODP source. Configure the source and advanced properties for the source object.
The following table describes the SAP ODP Extractor source properties that you can configure in a Source transformation:
Property
Description
Connection
Name of the source connection.
Source Type
The source type.
Select from one of the following types:
  • - Single. Select to specify a single SAP ODP object.
  • - Parameter. Select to specify the SAP ODP object as a parameter.

The following table describes the SAP ODP Extractor advanced source properties:
Property
Description
Data Fetch Mode
The data fetch mode used while reading records from ODP.
You can select from the following options:
0-Full
Reads all the records for the selected ODP.
1-Delta Plus
Reads all records of the ODP from the SAP system and also initializes the Operational Delta Queue (ODQ) for the selected ODP in the subscriber that you defined in the SAP system when you run the mapping for the first time using this mode. Subsequently, use this mode to read delta data of the ODP from the SAP system.
2-Delta Only
Initializes the Operational Delta Queue (ODQ) for the selected ODP in the subscriber that you defined in the SAP system when you run the mapping for the first time using this mode. Subsequently, when you use this mode and run the mapping, the Secure Agent reads delta data of the ODP from the SAP system.
3-Repetitive
Extracts delta records of the last delta run.
For example, use this mode when the mapping with the Delta Plus or Delta Only option fails, and you want to read the last delta again.
Parameter
Use this option when you want to parameterize the data fetch mode values. Specify a valid data fetch mode value in the Parameter Name for Data Fetch Mode field.
Parameter Name for Data Fetch Mode
The parameter name that you defined for the Data Fetch Mode property in the parameter file.
You can specify the following values for the data fetch mode:
  • - 0 for Full
  • - 1 for Delta Plus
  • - 2 for Delta Only
  • - 3 for Repetitive
If you pass any other value, the jobs fail when you run the mapping,
Job Timeout
Defines the maximum amount of time, in seconds, while processing the mapping during which the Secure Agent must wait before it receives communication from SAP and get the data packets.
The timeout applies only when the Secure Agent waits for SAP to send the data packets. Do not modify the default value.
Packet size in MB
The packet size of each SAP data packet while reading data from SAP S/4HANA.
Default value is 8 MB.
Tracing
Sets the amount of detail that appears in the log file.
You can choose terse, normal, verbose initialization or verbose data.
Default is normal
