Project description

SAP Data Intelligence Admin Tools

This tools help me to manage the user and the security of my DEMO Data Intelligence systems. The pre-requiste is to first install vctl (System Management Command-line) that can be dowloaded from the SAP Download Center.

Command-line scripts


Command line script that supports admin tasks regarding policy managment, like

  • downloading and
  • uploading policies including their resources
  • analyses policy dependency and producing a
    • csv-file of policy resources
    • visualizes policy network

Reads policy data from SAP Data Intelligence and provides a policy network, chart and a resources.csv file for further analysis.

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  -c CONFIG, --config CONFIG
                        Specifies yaml-config file
  -g, --generate        Generates config.yaml file
  -d DOWNLOAD, --download DOWNLOAD
                        Downloads specified policy. If 'all' then all policies are download

List of pipelines user has started recently. Needs a config.yaml with SAP Data Intelligence credentials:

URL : ''
TENANT: 'default'
USER : 'user'
PWD : 'pwd123'

didownload - part of diadmin

Downloads SAP Data Intelligence artifacts

  • operators
  • pipelines
  • Dockerfiles

to local files systems in order to be offline modified or tested (operators) or using a local git implementation for a version control. The script as to started from the root folder of the project that has the following structure:


  • operators/
    • package/
      • (optional) subpackage/
        • operator/
          • operator-files
          • ...
  • pipelines
    • package/
      • pipeline/
        • pipeline-file with sub-folders
  • dockerfiles
    • name of dockerfile
      • Dockerfile
      • Tags.json

In the root folder a config.yaml file is needed. With the option --config you can specify which config-file should be used in case e.g. you work with different user or SAP Data Intelligence instances. The basic parameters of config.yaml are

URL : ''
TENANT: 'default'
USER : 'user'
PWD : 'pwd123'

The --help option describes the additional options

didownload --help 
usage: didownload [-h] [-c CONFIG] [-o OPERATOR] [-p PIPELINE] [-d DOCKERFILE] [-g]
