A Collection of assorted Teradata Tools
tdtools is a collection of tools and utilities that I developed for my personal use. I am making these tools open-source in the hope that someone else might find them useful.
NOTE: These tools are not endorsed by Teradata Inc.
Theses tools are tested with Python 3.4 and Python 3.5. Python 2.7 version isn’t part of the testing and most likely will not work. However, if there is a strong interest in using Python 2.7 and changes required to support Python 2.7 are minimal, I may consider making selected modules support Python 2.7.
There is a dependency on teradata python package. It’ll be downloaded automatically if you use standard python installer pip.
Use Python’s standard pip utility to install tdtools. tdtools can be install in an virtualenv.
$ pip install tdtools
C:\>python -m pip install tdtools
No configuration is required except setting up the needed ODBC connections. All scripts that are part of tdtools accept arbitrary ODBC connection strings using --tdconn parameter.
If more flexibility is needed, for example, to use Teradata REST APIs, it may be done by providing sqlcsr_site.py in your PYTHONPATH. Have a look at sqlcsr.py module to get an idea about what can be overriden in sqlcsr_site.py.
All tools are command-line utilities that are automatically installed when tdtools is installed using pip. What follows is a brief description of each tool. Each tool support --help or -h command-line option that shows detailed description of options supported.
|dbtree||Prints Teradata database hierarchy.|
|vwtree||Prints (or save) view hierarchy.|
|tptload||Generate (and optionally run on Linux) TPT load script.|
All show* utilities generate DDLs for different types of Teradata objects.
|showdb||Database or user|
|showgrant||Grants to user/role|
|showtvm||Wrapper for Teradata SHOW <object> command|
All ls* utilities print Teradata object information from DBC tables. Currently supported commands are:
- When using teradata.tdrest as method for database connection, certain show* commands will not work correctly. This is due to an upstream defect. Note that this error does not occur when using teradata.tdodbc, the default method for database connection.
- SQL command show in xml view doesn’t always return referenced object list. When this happens, vwtree will print an error and not display view hierarchy.
If you encounter an issue, report it using issue tracker. I’ll try to provide a fix as soon as I can. If you already have a fix, send me a pull request.
Feel free to fork this repository and enhance it in a way you see fit. If you think your changes will benefit more people, send me a pull request.
Download the file for your platform. If you're not sure which to choose, learn more about installing packages.
