Does anyone know how to connect to SAP HANA? I tried going to the extensions page and was not able to find it. I looked at the Database Connector, but I am not seeing the JDBC connection or Driver. Does anyone have the drive and can share it with me? If no, any step by step guide to get this to work?
I looked at my SAP installation and I do not see the driver under the installation folder. I also installed dBeaver to try to get the drivers from there, but was unable to unpack the .JAR file.
welcome to the KNIME Forum! According to the SAP documentation the driver is part of the HANA Client installation. It should be named “ngdbc.jar”. Once you get the Jar file, you can register it in the KNIME preferences under KNIME -> Databases.
Thank you for your reply. I was not able to find the ngdbc.jar on my computer, but was able to download the driver from DBeaver; however, I found the “ngdbc-2.4.64.jar” file. Not sure if this is the same. If not, any chance anyone can share the driver?
Using the suggested steps, I followed them using the driver I found and was not able to see that connection. See screenshots.
Then I populated ID and Name, successfully added driver after which I could see it in DB Connector node. Restart was not necessary.
After/If you preformed same steps and still don’t see your driver you can check your log file (…\knime-workspace.metadata\knime\knime.log) for additional info. Also you can share it here if no sensitive information in it and someone will take a look. Otherwise (if there is sensitive information in it) I will send you a PM where you can respond attaching your log file.
Thank you so much for the instructions. I was able to find the driver. However, I don’t mean to sound ignorant, but want to clarify the ID, Name, Description and URL Template would be information coming from Hana or is this simply a naming convention.
Thank you so much for your help. This is the first time setting up a driver for me.
glad you made it! Regarding ID, Name and other information take a look at this paragraph in database documentation. It is very well explained. Probably I should have shared link to documentation earlier
