Write to SAP HANA

To write data to SAP HANA with Flux:

  1. Import the sql package.

  2. Pipe-forward data into sql.to() and provide the following parameters:

    • driverName: hdb
    • dataSourceName: See data source name
    • table: Table to write to
    • batchSize: Number of parameters or columns that can be queued within each call to Exec (default is 10000)
import "sql"
  
data
    |> sql.to(
        driverName: "hdb",
        dataSourceName: "hdb://username:password@myserver:30015",
        table: "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>

Flux to SAP HANA data type conversion

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

Flux data type SAP HANA data type
float DOUBLE
int BIGINT
string NVARCHAR(5000)
bool BOOLEAN
time * TIMESTAMP

* 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.

The future of Flux

Flux is going into maintenance mode. You can continue using it as you currently are without any changes to your code.

Flux is going into maintenance mode and will not be supported in InfluxDB 3.0. This was a decision based on the broad demand for SQL and the continued growth and adoption of InfluxQL. We are continuing to support Flux for users in 1.x and 2.x so you can continue using it with no changes to your code. If you are interested in transitioning to InfluxDB 3.0 and want to future-proof your code, we suggest using InfluxQL.
