API for AWS Lake Formation

ABAP Package /AWS1/API_LKF_IMPL
ABAP SDK "TLA" LKF
ABAP Interface /AWS1/IF_LKF

The "TLA" is a Three Letter Abbreviation that appears in ABAP class names, data dictionary objects and other ABAP objects throughout the AWS SDK for SAP ABAP. The TLA for AWS Lake Formation is LKF. This TLA helps squeeze ABAP objects into the 30-character length limit of the ABAP data dictionary.

Installation

To install the AWS SDK for SAP ABAP, import the Core transport, along with the transport for the LakeFormation module and other API modules you are interested in. A few modules are included in the Core transport itself. For more information, see the Developer Guide guide.

About The Service

Lake Formation

Defines the public endpoint for the Lake Formation service.

Using the SDK

In your code, create a client using the SDK module for AWS Lake Formation, which is created with factory method /AWS1/CL_LKF_FACTORY=>create(). In this example we will assume you have configured an SDK profile in transaction /AWS1/IMG called ZFINANCE.

DATA(go_session)   = /aws1/cl_rt_session_aws=>create( 'ZFINANCE' ).
DATA(go_lkf)       = /aws1/cl_lkf_factory=>create( go_session ).

Your variable go_lkf is an instance of /AWS1/IF_LKF, and all of the operations in the AWS Lake Formation service are accessed by calling methods in /AWS1/IF_LKF.

RETURNING

OO_CLIENT TYPE REF TO /AWS1/IF_LKF

/AWS1/IF_LKF represents the ABAP client for the LakeFormation service, representing each operation as a method call. For more information see the API Page page.

Configuring Programmatically

DATA(lo_config) = DATA(go_lkf)->get_config( ).

lo_config is a variable of type /AWS1/CL_LKF_CONFIG. See the documentation for /AWS1/CL_LKF_CONFIG for details on the settings that can be configured.

Paginators

Paginators for AWS Lake Formation can be created via get_paginator() which returns a paginator object of type /AWS1/IF_LKF_PAGINATOR. The operation method that is being paginated is called using the paginator object, which accepts any necessary parameters to provide to the underlying API operation. This returns an iterator object which can be used to iterate over paginated results using has_next() and get_next() methods.

Details about the paginator methods available for service AWS Lake Formation can be found in interface /AWS1/IF_LKF_PAGINATOR.
