So I’ve been attempting to use the new DB (Labs) nodes with SAS JDBC.
I am pleased to report I can connect & for the most part retrieve metadata, however the method KNIME is using to retrieve data is problematic with SAS.
SELECT * FROM (SELECT * from SCHEMA.TABLE ) tempTable_270228094122408981 LIMIT 10
Sharenet.S589.ex.txt: Method not supported.
I’m sure it is the wrapper & / or the LIMIT keyword which are problematic.
Additionally some JDBC parameters seem to be ignored, for example ‘remarks=false’ forces SAS to provide the column names & not column labels with the metadata being fetched, however KNIME reports errors if this is set. Without it set it will pull metadata if the columns are labeled (have descriptions in SAS).
I can work around the metadata issue, however the real problem is the wrapped SQL. Is there any way to configure KNIME to not wrap the SQL it sends to SAS?
Thanks in advance,
