SQL deployment

Overview​

Ververica Cloud allows you to edit drafts and run deployments using SQL code. This topic explains how to perform various operations, such as accessing Ververica Cloud, creating SQL drafts, and running SQL deployments.

Prerequisites​

You must have created an existing account and workspace (for example by following the steps in in Get started).

Procedure​

The procedure consists of three steps:

  • Step 1: Create an SQL draft and write business code on the SQL Editor page.
  • Step 2: Start the deployment
  • Step 3: View the results of the deployment

Step 1: Create an SQL draft​

To create your first SQL draft:

  1. On your Dashboard page, do one of the following:

    • Click the name of the workspace that you created in Set up your free trial account.
    • Click the triple dots at the end of the workspace entry and select Open Console. The Ververica Cloud console for the workspace will be displayed.
  2. In the module navigation panel, click SQL Editor.

    note

    For this tutorial you can accept the default values for the Location and Engine Version (you might need to scroll down to see this option).

  6. Copy the deployment code below and paste it into the code editor panel on the right.

    CREATE TEMPORARY TABLE datagen_source( 
    randstr VARCHAR
    ) WITH (
    'connector' = 'datagen'
    );

    CREATE TEMPORARY TABLE print_table(
    randstr VARCHAR
    ) WITH (
    'connector' = 'print',
    'logger' = 'true'
    );

    INSERT INTO print_table
    SELECT SUBSTRING(randstr,0,8) from datagen_source;
    note

    This creates a datagen source table that generates random data, and enables the system to display the data of the randstr field in the datagen source table.

    Initially, the status will be STARTING.

  4. After the deployment is started, the deployment status changes to RUNNING. This indicates that the deployment is running properly.

Step 3: View the results​

To view the results:

  1. On the Deployments page, click the name of the Deployment.

  2. Click the Diagnostics > Logs tab.
