Query SAP HANA

To query SAP HANA with Flux:

  1. Import the sql package.

  2. Use sql.from() and provide the following parameters:

import "sql"

sql.from(
    driverName: "hdb",
    dataSourceName: "hdb://username:password@myserver:30015",
    query: "SELECT * FROM SCHEMA.TABLE",
)

SAP HANA data source name

The hdb driver uses the following DSN syntaxes (also known as a connection string):

hdb://<user>:<password>@<host>:<port>?<connection-property>=<value>&<connection-property>=<value>&...
hdb://<user>:<password>@<host>:<port>?DATABASENAME=<tenant-db-name>
hdb://?KEY=<keyname>

SAP HANA to Flux data type conversion

sql.from() converts SAP HANA data types to Flux data types.

SAP HANA data typeFlux data type
TINYINT, SMALLINT, INTEGER, BIGINTint
REAL, DOUBLE, DECIMALfloat
* TIMESTAMPtime

All other SAP HANA data types are converted to strings.

* The SAP HANA TIMESTAMP data type does not store time zone information and SAP strongly discourages storing data in the local time zone. For more information, see Timestamps in SAP HANA.
