TPT

This section illustrates TPT translation from Teradata to Snowflake.

TPT statements transformation

All TPT statements, like other Teradata scripting languages, are being converted to python code. Here are some examples of transformations already supported.

Define Job header transformation

The job statement is translated to a python class with all the statements like operators, schema definitions, and steps inside of it.

Source code

/* Some comments on the job  */
DEFINE JOB LOADJOB
DESCRIPTION 'LOAD AC_SCHEMA TABLE FROM A FILE'
JobBody

Translated code

# Some comments on the job
class LOADJOB:
    # DESCRIPTION 'LOAD AC_SCHEMA TABLE FROM A FILE'
    JobBody

Define Schema transformation

The schema statement is translated to an attribute in the class created for the job statement.

Source code

DEFINE SCHEMA DCS_SCHEMA
DESCRIPTION 'DCS DATA'
(
PNRHEADER_ID   PERIOD(DATE),
PNRLOCPERIOD   PERIOD(TIMESTAMP(0)),
CRTDATE        CLOB,
REQTYP         JSON(100000),
seqno          INTEGER,
resdata        INTEGER
);

Translated code

class JOBNAME:
    DCS_SCHEMA = """(
    PNRHEADER_ID VARCHAR(24),
    PNRLOCPERIOD VARCHAR(58),
    CRTDATE VARCHAR /*** MSC-WARNING - SSC-FDM-TD0002 - COLUMN CONVERTED FROM CLOB DATA TYPE ***/,
    REQTYP VARIANT,
    seqno INTEGER,
    resdata INTEGER,
    );"""

Define Operator transformation

The operators are translated to python functions inside the class generated for the job. The examples provided are the operators that SnowConvert currently supports

DDL Operator

Source code for DDL operator

DEFINE OPERATOR DDL_OPERATOR()
DESCRIPTION 'TERADATA PARALLEL TRANSPORTER DDL OPERATOR'
TYPE DDL
ATTRIBUTES
(
  VARCHAR PrivateLogName ,
  VARCHAR TdpId          = @MyTdpId,
  VARCHAR UserName       = @MyUserName,
  VARCHAR UserPassword   = 'SomePassWord',
  VARCHAR AccountID,
  VARCHAR ErrorList      = ['3807','2580']
);

Translated code

class JobName:
    def DDL_OPERATOR(self):
        #'TERADATA PARALLEL TRANSPORTER DDL OPERATOR'
        global args
        self.con = log_on(user = args.MyUserName, password = 'SomePassWord')

UPDATE Operator

Source code for UPDATE operator

DEFINE OPERATOR LOAD_OPERATOR()
DESCRIPTION 'TERADATA PARALLEL TRANSPORTER LOAD OPERATOR'
TYPE UPDATE
SCHEMA AC_MASTER_SCHEMA
ATTRIBUTES
(
    VARCHAR PrivateLogName ,
    INTEGER MaxSessions       =  32,
    INTEGER MinSessions       =  1,
    VARCHAR TargetTable       = '&TARGET_TABLE',
    VARCHAR TdpId             = @MyTdpId,
    VARCHAR UserName          = @MyUserName,
    VARCHAR UserPassword      = @MyPassword,
    VARCHAR AccountId,
    VARCHAR ErrorTable1       = '&LOG_DB_NAME.ERR1',
    VARCHAR ErrorTable2       = '&LOG_DB_NAME.ERR2',
    VARCHAR LogTable          = '&LOG_DB_NAME.LOG_TABLE'
);

Translated code

class JobName:
    def LOAD_OPERATOR(self, query):
        #'TERADATA PARALLEL TRANSPORTER LOAD OPERATOR'
        #USES SCHEMA AC_MASTER_SCHEMA
        operator_name = "LOAD_OPERATOR"
        return query

DATA CONNECTOR PRODUCER Operator

Source code for Data Connector Producer operator

DEFINE OPERATOR FILE_READER()
DESCRIPTION 'TERADATA PARALLEL TRANSPORTER DATA CONNECTOR OPERATOR'
TYPE DATACONNECTOR PRODUCER
SCHEMA AC_MASTER_SCHEMA
ATTRIBUTES
(
  VARCHAR PrivateLogName ,
  VARCHAR DirectoryPath   = '&INPUTFILEPATH' ,
  VARCHAR FileName        = '&INPUTTEXTFILE' ,
  VARCHAR Format          = 'delimited',
  VARCHAR OpenMode        = 'Read',
  VARCHAR TextDelimiter     = '~',
  VARCHAR IndicatorMode   = 'N'
);

Translated code

class JobName:
    def FILE_READER(self):
        #'TERADATA PARALLEL TRANSPORTER DATA CONNECTOR OPERATOR'
        #USES SCHEMA AC_MASTER_SCHEMA
        operator_name = "FILE_READER"
        stage_name = f"{self.jobname}_{operator_name}"
        format_name = f"{self.jobname}_{operator_name}_FILEFORMAT"
        exec(f"""CREATE OR REPLACE FILE FORMAT {format_name} TYPE = 'CSV' FIELD_DELIMITER = '~' TRIM_SPACE = TRUE SKIP_HEADER = 0""")
        exec(f"""CREATE STAGE IF NOT EXISTS {self.jobname}_STAGE""")
        exec(f"""PUT file://{INPUTFILEPATH}/{INPUTTEXTFILE} @{stage_name} OVERWRITE = TRUE AUTO_COMPRESS = FALSE;""")
        temp_table_name = f"{self.jobname}_{operator_name}_TEMP"
        exec(f"""DROP TABLE IF EXISTS {temp_table_name}""")
        exec(f"""CREATE TEMPORARY TABLE {temp_table_name} {self.AC_MASTER_SCHEMA}""")
        exec(f"""COPY INTO {temp_table_name} FROM @{stage_name} FILE_FORMAT = (format_name = '{format_name}')""")
        return temp_table_name

Define step transformation

Steps are too translated to python functions inside the class generated for the job, they will be called in the main function of the translated code.

Step source code

STEP setup_tables
(
  APPLY
  ('DELETE FROM  &STAGE_DB_NAME.EMS_AC_MASTER_STG;')
   TO OPERATOR (DDL_OPERATOR() );
);

STEP stLOAD_FILE_NAME
(
  APPLY
  ('INSERT INTO CRASHDUMPS.EMP_NAME
  (EMP_NAME, EMP_YEARS, EMP_TEAM)
  VALUES
  (:EMP_NAME, :EMP_YEARS, :EMP_TEAM);')
  TO OPERATOR (ol_EMP_NAME() [1])
  SELECT * FROM OPERATOR(op_EMP_NAME);
