Using ORACLE Procedure with Ref Cursor output as source in SAP Data Integrator

Hi everyone,

We need to use Oracle Procedure with a Ref Cursor output parameter as a source in SAP Data Integrator, we are searching, and we can't find out a solutions or workarround for that.

For us now is not possible to modify the procedure to store the result in a table and then use the table as source, for that reasen we need to find a way to call the Procedure directly in DI and get the resultset from the ref cursor.

Best Regards,

    I don't have access to an Oracle environment so I cannot test whether calling the stored procedure from a SQL transform would work or not.

    Is there anybody out there who would want to give this a try?

    • Hi Dirk, Martin,

      I found out some more useful points

      Please refer to Section of 6.5.5 Structure of a stored procedure of Data Services Reference Guide

      Data Services omits a parameter if any of the following data type conditions is true:

      • Is not a Data Services supported data type or is long

      • Data type is missing in the database dictionary

      • Is a composite data type (e.g., table, record, or cursor)

      After Data Services imports a stored procedure, the Designer reports warnings about any omitted parameters.


      Even if a stored procedure has an omitted parameter, the procedure is callable if the parameter has a

      default value defined. If the omitted parameter does not have a default value, the procedure is not

      callable and Data Services throws a runtime error.

      Only BusinessObjects Universe Designer or IDT support usage of Stored Procedure with Ref Cursor.
