MySQL - Merge

On this Page

Snap type:

Write


Description:

This Snap executes a SQL Merge with given properties. The documents that are provided on the input view will be merged into the provided table on the provided database. Each document on the input view is expected to be merged or created with/as a new record in the table. Unlike Oracle - Merge and SQL Server - Merge Snaps, MySQL - Merge Snap does not have Merge condition property. This is because MySQL operates merge on its primary key only. Therefore, input data must contain the value of the primary key for the merge operation to work.

Merges will be batched up until the account's batch size property or until the structure of the update statement changes. An update statement will change if an incoming document contains different keys than a previous document.

Queries produced by the Snap have the format:

 MERGE INTO tablename USING table_reference ON (condition)
    WHEN MATCHED THEN
    UPDATE SET column1 = value1 [, column2 = value2 ...]
    WHEN NOT MATCHED THEN
    INSERT (column1 [, column2 ...]) VALUES (value1 [, value2 ...]);
 

More info on SQL Merges can be found at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Merge_(SQL) and http://www.h2database.com/html/grammar.html#merge


Prerequisites:

[None]


Support and limitations:
Account: 

This Snap uses account references created on the Accounts page of SnapLogic Manager to handle access to this endpoint. See MySQL Account for information on setting up this type of account.


Views:
InputThis Snap has exactly one document input view.
OutputThis Snap has at most one document output view. If an output view is available, then the original document that was used to create the statement will be output with the status of the merge executed.
ErrorThis Snap has at most one document error view and produces zero or more documents in the view.

Settings

Label


Required. The name for the Snap. You can modify this to be more specific, especially if you have more than one of the same Snap in your pipeline.

Schema name



The database schema name. In case it is not defined, then the suggestion for the Table Name will retrieve all tables names of all schemas. The property is suggestible and will retrieve available database schemas during suggest values.

The values can be passed using the pipeline parameters but not the upstream parameter.

ExampleSYS
Default value:  [None]


Table name


Required.The name of table to execute the insert on.

The values can be passed using the pipeline parameters but not the upstream parameter.


Examplepeople

Default value:  [None]


Number of retries

Specifies the maximum number of attempts to be made to receive a response. The request is terminated if the attempts do not result in a response.

When you enable retry and a connection failure occurs that cannot be recovered by retry, the Snap writes a connection failure error in the error view. In some cases, the error view records might contain duplicate data that was written to the database. Ensure to verify all the records in the error file before you restart the merge request. You can locate the duplicate records in the error view by checking the $reason property for the sub-string: Connection is not available, request timed out.

Example: 3

Default value: 0

No macro found named "retries" on page "File Reader" in space "SD".

If you're experiencing issues please see our Troubleshooting Guide.

Retry interval (seconds)

Specifies the time interval between two successive retry requests. A retry happens only when the previous attempt resulted in an exception. 

Example:  10

Default value: 1

When you enable retry and a connection failure occurs that cannot be recovered by retry, the Snap writes a connection failure error in the error view. In some cases, the error view records might contain duplicate data that was written to the database. Ensure to verify all the records in the error file before you restart the merge request. You can locate the duplicate records in the error view by checking the $reason property for the sub-string: Connection is not available, request timed out.

Snap Execution

Select one of the three modes in which the Snap executes. Available options are:

  • Validate & Execute: Performs limited execution of the Snap, and generates a data preview during Pipeline validation. Subsequently, performs full execution of the Snap (unlimited records) during Pipeline runtime.
  • Execute only: Performs full execution of the Snap during Pipeline execution without generating preview data.
  • Disabled: Disables the Snap and all Snaps that are downstream from it.


Example


In this pipeline, the records from two different input streams are merged into a MySQL table using the MySQL Merge Snap. The upstream input from the Mapper Snap and the CSV Generator Snap are joined by the Join Snap. The new MySQL table will now have the records with columns passed from both the input sources.



The MySQl Select Snap retrieves the records from the table, `pqadb`.`TAM_SAMPLE_PERSONS` to be merged into a table `pqadb`.`TAM_SAMPLE_PERSONS_MERGE`.

The Snap settings and the output preview is as displayed below:

The Mapper Snap maps the records to be merged with the MySQL table, `pqadb`.`TAM_SAMPLE_PERSONS_MERGE`.

The CSV Generator passes the records to be merged into the MySQL table, `pqadb`.`TAM_SAMPLE_PERSONS_MERGE`.

The output preview at the CSV Generator Snap is as displayed below:



The Join Snap joins both the input streams and the output preview is as displayed below:

Note that the input from the CSV Generator Snap had three columns only and hence the remaining columns are displayed as null.



The MySQL Merge Snap merges the input documents into the table `pqadb`.`TAM_SAMPLE_PERSONS_MERGE`.

The output preview at the MySQL Merge Snap is as displayed below:
