Use of OMI_IGNORE_NOTFOUND flag in SAS OpenMetadata interface (SAS 9.4)

Hi, 

 

This was originally posted here

 

In SAS Open Metadata reference (page 126), it says: The UpdateMetadata method enables you to update the properties of existing metadata objects. It returns an error if the metadata object to be updated does not exist, unless the OMI_IGNORE_NOTFOUND (134217728) flag is set.

Here is my problem, if I specify the flag or I don't specify the flag, I still get the same error: ("SASLibrary : A5X8AHW1.B40000SQ cannot be found in the wlibrary container in the Foundation repository.")

Here is a snippet that reproduces the error:

 

import com.sas.meta.SASOMI.IOMI;
import com.sas.metadata.MetadataUtil;
import org.omg.CORBA.StringHolder;

IOMI iOMI = ... // an instance of IOMI connection

StringHolder outputMeta = new StringHolder();

String request = ""
        + "<UpdateMetadata>"
        + "   <Metadata>"
        + "     <SASLibrary Id=\"A5X8AHW1.B40000SQ\"/>"
        + "   </Metadata>"
        + "   <NS>SAS</NS>"
        + "   <Flags>" + (MetadataUtil.OMI_IGNORE_NOTFOUND | MetadataUtil.OMI_TRUSTED_CLIENT | MetadataUtil.OMI_RETURN_LIST) + "</Flags>"
        + "   <Options/>"
        + "</UpdateMetadata>"
        ;

iOMI.DoRequest(request, outputMeta);

Any ideas what is going wrong? 

 

Regards,

Vasilij

Re: Use of OMI_IGNORE_NOTFOUND flag in SAS OpenMetadata interface (SAS 9.4)

OMI_IGNORE_NOTFOUND with the UpdateMetadata method only ignores objects notfound within the bounds of a remove function.

Re: Use of OMI_IGNORE_NOTFOUND flag in SAS OpenMetadata interface (SAS 9.4)

Hi,

 

does the metadata object "A5X8AHW1.B40000SQ" exist? You can use the following code to find out the

correct ID:

 

proc metadata
     in='<GetMetadataObjects>
      <Reposid>$METAREPOSITORY</Reposid>
         <Type>SASLibrary</Type>
         <Ns>SAS</Ns>
         <Flags>1</Flags>
         <Options/>
         </GetMetadataObjects>';
run;

 

Thanks

Re: Use of OMI_IGNORE_NOTFOUND flag in SAS OpenMetadata interface (SAS 9.4)

Hello Anja, 

 

Thank you for the comment. The object ID is correct. It existed, but was deleted. This is just a test code to validate why there is error about an object not found with the flag OMI_IGNORE_NOTFOUND present.

Vasilij

FriedEgg,

Thank you, it seems the documentation is not very clear on the scope of the flag.

Re: Use of OMI_IGNORE_NOTFOUND flag in SAS OpenMetadata interface (SAS 9.4)

Since the OP was about the java version of the interface, and I don't get to use it much lately, here is a full example of a class to test the update vs delete metadata requests with OMI_IGNORE_NOTFOUND

    private String serverPass = null;
    private  boolean serverLog = false;

    public MdExample() {
