Designing an Interface Using the SAP ABAP KM
To create an interface that loads SAP ERP data into your Oracle Data warehouse table:
Create an interface with source datastores from the SAP ABAP Model created previously. This interface should have an Oracle target or use an Oracle schema as the Staging Area.
Create joins, filters and mappings for your interface.
In the Flow tab of the interface, select the source set containing the SAP ABAP source table(s) and select the SAP ERP LKM to Oracle (SQLLDR).
Click Apply to save your interface.
Click Execute to run the interface.
File Transfer Configurations
The ODI SAP connector extracts data using ABAP programs. At the end of the extraction process these ABAP programs will push the data file to an FTP server. Ideally this FTP server is located on the ODI agent machine. If this is not the case, the ODI agent will download the file from the FTP server to the agent for loading the data using SQLLDR. This download can be performed using FTP, SFTP or SCP.
Configuration 1: FTP Server is installed on an ODI Agent machine

The ABAP program extracts the data and pushes the data file to the FTP server defined by the FTP data server. The file is stored in the directory given by the FTP server's data schema.
SQLLDR locates the data file using the work schema of the FTP server and uploads the data into Oracle DB.
This configuration requires the following Topology settings in ODI:
