Generates solution package when locally developing SAP DI operators

Project description


Generates the SAP Data Intelligence (SAP DI) solution files that enables to locally code new custom python operators and prepares for uploading to an SAP DI instance as a solution.

A specific folder structure is required in order use the gensolution that complies to a general github repository setup. This can be setup with gensolution --project.

In addition the operator script needs to provide additional information that is used to create the operator description files operator.json and configSchema.json.

Required Folder Structure

  • project
    • src: containing the source code of the operator packages
      • package1
        • [operator] - operator is placeholder for the name of the operator
          • [operator].py
        • package2
          • ...
    • solution: containing the solution folders that corresponds to the SAP DI python subengine folder structure. The structure is generated if not existing.
      • operators
        • (solution for uploading to a SAP DI instance
        • package_version
          • manifest.json
          • content
            • files
              • ...


The genjson-script needs to be exectuted at the root of the project folder (Exception when using ```gensolution --project``).

usage: [-h] [--project PROJECT] [--version VERSION] [--debug]

Generate SAP Data Intelligence solution for local operator code

optional arguments:
  -h, --help         show this help message and exit
  --project PROJECT  Creates new project with folder structure for locally
                     programming operators
  --version VERSION  version format <num.num.num>
  --debug            for debug-level information
  --force            removes subdirectories from <solution/operators>

Operator Template

def process(msg):

    # core process 
    # start custom code

    with open(filename, 'r') as fin :
        data =
    # end custom code

    # return message
    return  api.Message(attributes = {'filename':api.config.filename}, body=data), log_stream.getvalue()

            return msg, info

# list input and output ports with specified types for creating operator.json
inports = [{"name":"input","type":"message"}]
outports = [{"name":"output","type":"message"}]

def interface(msg):
    msg, info = process(msg)
    api.send(outports[0]["name"], msg)

# Triggers the request for every message (the message provides the stock_symbol)
api.set_port_callback(inports[0]["name"], interface)
