Create Nodejs. Module

In this section, I am going to show how to create a nodejs module and add an OData service within it. This OData service will be used to expose the contents of the table/view modeled earlier.

Build database objects/services in HANA service using SAP WebIDE Full-Stack : Part 1

I walked through the steps to install and configure the HANA service on SAP Cloud Platform Cloud Foundry environment, In this blog series, I will focus on how to get started with building database objects using SAP WebIDE Full-Stack service. One of the main advantages of using SAP WebIDE is that you can now build a full-stack application (Database object, services with business logic and UI components etc). In this blog series, I am going to focus on how to create database objects and expose them as XSOData services. I have come across several requirements where data needs to be stored in SAP HANA service and needs to be exposed for other cloud platform services to consume. Hence, I will start by showing how to create DB artefacts and end by showing how to expose contents of a table using an OData service.

The SAP HANA JSON Document Store – Use Case Part-2

Example Use Case for the Document Store


In part one of this blog series the Document Store was introduced. The most interesting part about this is the possibility to interact with the relational world inside SAP HANA, e.g. joining a collection with a table. Since this is a very abstract feature, the following sections will introduce an example use case including SQL queries for a better and deeper understanding of the SAP HANA JSON Document Store.

SLT Replication Logging and Replay To Retrieve Lost Data

We know SLT used for real-time replication to HANA but if we face below situations then SLT logging and replay is useful.

1. Table replication shows fine but some data fields not updated correctly(Due to product bug or any other reason) – example cases are flag fields where data changed multiple times in particular time.

Multiple SAML2 Identity Providers for HANA XS Artifact – How It Works

SAML 2 Single Sign-On (SSO) is usually a must-have for live HANA connections in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC). In such a setup, the InA service, which is a HANA XS artifact, is configured with a SAML 2 Identity Provider (IdP), typically the same IdP as the one used by SAC. This IdP is often the corporate SAML 2 Identity Provider.
