Data Validation Option User Guide

Data Validation Option User Guide

SAP Connection Properties

SAP Connection Properties

You must configure the connection properties when you use an SAP data source in a table pair, single-table constraint, or join view. You cannot override the owner name for an SAP data source.
Data Validation Option uses stream mode for the installation of ABAP programs. It does not use FTP mode. SAP data sources must not contain the backslash (/) character in field names.
The following table lists the connection properties for an SAP data source:
Property
Description
Connection
PowerCenter connection object to connect to the SAP data source.
SAP User Name
SAP source system connection user name. Must be a user for which you created a source system connection.
SAP Password
Password for the user name.
SAP Client
SAP client number.
SAP Language
Language you want for the mapping. Must be compatible with the PowerCenter Client code page.
Data Validation Option does not authenticate the value. Ensure that you enter the correct value so that the tests run successfully.
SAP Connect String
Type A or Type B DEST entry in saprfc.ini. For example, enter
GE6
for the following Type A entry:
DEST=GE6 TYPE=A ASHOST=gcssapec6.informatica.com SYSNR=00 RFC_TRACE=1
