How to ship DataServices Job to Customer

Hello colleagues,

we have cretaed an Import Job on a BOBJ DataServices Repository to import a file (1,5 GB) to our HANA system. This job fills several tables (32 tables). The file we and also our customer get from a data provider.

Now we want to ship this job to our customers, so that they also can import the file to there HANA tables, without having effort to change tables or hana schema in the different steps of the job.

In the job we have several lookups to database tables.

So we do not know how to ship the job, without have our tables included in the exported file.

    You can ship Data Services code as ATL or XML, either way it is an export from a local repository. Most experienced developers would use an assembly repository to pull togther a release.

    The other part of your question is a little confusing, however I guess it to do with switching schema names, if so, datastore aliases are designed for this.

      The technical manuals (installed with the designer) cover this, under datastores. The are also available at

      So, assuming you didn't know they exist, you will have hard-coded the schema name everywhere. What you should have done was create an alias before importing the metadata for the tables, this way the alias is referenced everywhere. However, you can retrospectively create an alias with the same name as the dev schema, or use the rename owner feature. Have a play.
