How to use Jython to send a dynamic HTML table email from ODI (part 2/2)

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , on May 5, 2020 by RZGiampaoli

Hey guys how are you? I hope you guys are not insane after this 2 months of quarantine. Anyway, is time for us to finish the send email job. In the previous post HERE I explained the Jython code and the HTML code that we need to use to create our HTML table in our email. Today we’ll going to do it become dynamic.

As we saw, for every row we want it we need to have a block of HTML code that will draw the table, color the table and write the content of the cell in our table. We need this to change dynamically if we want to be useful for us, and to do that we need to write a SQL code to create this HTML code for us.

In my case I generate this code here to be my header:

<TR>
<TH COLSPAN="16" ALIGN="CENTER">Restatements Control - Group ID: 1</TH>
</TR>
<TR>
      <TH>Session Name</TH>
      <TH>Interface Name</TH>
      <TH>Year</TH>
      <TH>Feb</TH>
      <TH>Mar</TH>
      <TH>Apr</TH>
      <TH>May</TH>
      <TH>Jun</TH>
      <TH>Jul</TH>
      <TH>Aug</TH>
      <TH>Sep</TH>
      <TH>Oct</TH>
      <TH>Nov</TH>
      <TH>Dec</TH>
      <TH>Jan</TH>
      <TH>Adj</TH>
</TR>

This is saying that I’ll have 16 columns (COLSPAN=”16″) with Center alignment and the name of the table will be “Restatements Control – Group ID: 1” (where the 1 will be dynamically generated as well).

Now we first need to write a query to get this info for us. Since this is a very project related query, I don’t think it’ll do any good for you guys to put my query here, but I’ll explain what I was looking for. First I’m querying the ALL_TAB_PARTITIONS to get all partitions related with that table. Then I was querying a control table that every time the jobs run, it inserts in this table the period loaded, if there’s errors or not, the log folder path and the interface that run the job.

After that I do a FULL OUTER JOIN between this 2 tables to see all partitions I have and how many of these partitions were already executed. Next I PIVOT the information to get a table like data and the results is similar to this:

I created some simple Status code to make easy to manipulate later. NP is “No Partition”, N is “Never Run”, Y is “Warning”, R is “Error” and G is “Success”. Also, when is Y or R I have the Log Path associated with that run, this way the users can click and go to the log folder of that execution.

In my case this is important because this is for an restatement process where the business want to restate the entire past and we have millions of rows per partition, and they want flexibility to run as fit. Then we need to track the executions over time.

Now, the only thing that needs to be done is to convert this information in HTML code. This is easy since we just need to concatenate strings all over the place. Let’s see how I have done it:

The result is one big string for each row the query results. Each column was concatenated with a “Enter” between than, so when this code is used, we’ll have proper indentation for readability. This is the query I used to concatenate everything:

        '||'<TR ALIGN="CENTER">'||'
        '||'<TD>'||SESSION_NAME||'</TD>'||'

'||'</TR>' AS SCRIPT

Basically is a lot of DECODE’s to convert my STATUS code in colors and some REGEXP to split the STATUS from the Log path. That’s it for SQL. Now the only problem we have is that this is a very big string and the only way for us to store this is to use a PL/SQL because inside a PL/SQL a Varchar2 (32767 bytes) variable is bigger than inside SQL (4000 bytes).

We just need to create a simple PL/SQL to insert and concatenate all this rows into a CLOB that is a little big bigger (4 GB). To do that we just need to do something like this:

DECLARE
 
CURSOR C_HTML_TAG IS

	SQL HERE;
 
V_HTML_BODY CLOB;
 
BEGIN
 
    FOR DADOS IN C_HTML_TAG LOOP
      V_HTML_BODY := V_HTML_BODY || TO_CLOB(DADOS.SCRIPT);
    END LOOP;
              
    INSERT INTO FDM_ODI_RUN.TMP_HTML_BODY_DW (HTML_BODY) VALUES (V_HTML_BODY);
              
END;

That’s it, now for the easy part, use it in ODI. To do so we’ll have a command in the SOURCE querying the TMP_HTML_BODY table and then we’ll pass #SCRIPT info to our Jython target code:

import smtplib
 
from email.mime.multipart import MIMEMultipart
from email.mime.text import MIMEText
 
mailFrom = "#FROM_MAIL"
mailSend = "#ADMIN_MAIL"
 
msg = MIMEMultipart()

msg['From'] = mailFrom
msg['To'] = mailSend

ODI will than replace the SCRIPT with all HTML code we created and will turn this into a generic HTML table and send it by email using Jython.

How to use Jython to send a dynamic HTML table email from ODI (part 1/2)

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on April 21, 2020 by RZGiampaoli

Hey guys how are you? Today I’ll talk a little bit how can we create a dynamic HTML table email from ODI using Jython.

First of all, let me give you a little bit of context. I had to build an ODI process to restate the past data in our DW. That means, the business wanted, to a certain point in time, to go back all the way to the first period we have in our DW and restate the data based in a map table that they provided.

That’s all right, the biggest problem is that this table is partitioned by Source System and Period, and the business wanted the process to be flexible enough to let them run 1 period and 1 source system at time or to run an range of period and ALL sources at time (and any combination of these 2).

Also all right, my problem now is how to provide the business with a reliable way to tell them what they already run, what is still pending, if we had an error in a period or if there’s some validation fall outs in a period. In other words, how to track the process during execution.

My answer to that, I decide to send a email with a table that shows the source system and years in the rows and the months in the columns, and based in a color code, I paint the cells based in the status of the execution.

This post will be about the Jython/HTML code we wrote and the next post will be about how to make it dynamic in ODI. Let’s start it with the Jython part:

import smtplib

from email.mime.multipart import MIMEMultipart
from email.mime.text import MIMEText

mailFrom = "ODI Services <donotreply@ODI.com>"
mailSend = 'email@here.com'

msg = MIMEMultipart()
msg['Subject'] = "Subject here"
msg['From'] = mailFrom
msg['To'] = mailSend

html = 
"""\

HTML CODE HERE

"""

part = MIMEText(html, 'html')
msg.attach(part)
s = smtplib.SMTP('SMTP SERVER HERE')
s.sendmail(mailFrom, mailSend.split(','), msg.as_string())
s.quit()

This is everything you need to have in your procedure to send a HTML code by email. It’s a very simple code, basically we import “smtplib” lib and that will handle the email sending, after that we just need to inform the user, password and SMTP server and use the “sendmail” to send the email. Pretty straight forward.

Now, in the meddle of the code, we have the HTML part that needs to be included. In our case, it’ll be a table. To test the HTML code, you can google “HTML test runner” that it’ll bring a lot of places in the internet where you can run your HTML code and test to see the results. It’s pretty handy, and I’m using this one here.

To create a simple table in HTML we just need this code here:

This code is also fairly simple and basically we have:

  1. <TABLE> tag, where you define the margins, border size, width of the table, cell padding and cell spacing. There’s more options there but you can easily find in the HTML doc.
  2. <TR> tag, where you define the amount of columns using the COLSPAN property as well the alignment of the text there
  3. <TH> tag, where we define the cells of our table itself. There’re a lot of properties for this but I’m using juts a fix 20% width for each cell, just to size them the same (since I have 5 columns), the Color of the cells and the message I want to send.

This is my legend table that will come above my real table, but the configuration is the same in both cases. We’ll have one <TR> block for each line we want to have and as much <TH> lines we need for each cell we want to have. In the end my final table is like this:

As you can see, I send an email with all periods that needs to be restatement showing if the interface already ran, if that was a success, or it had warnings or errors (with the link straight to the error file, if it was not loaded yet and even if we don’t had the partition created for that period/source.

Now, as I said, we need one <TR> per line and, in this case, 16 <TH>, one per cell. As you can imagine, that’s a lot of code that needs to be write there. thanks god I’m using ODI to do that for me, and we’ll take a look on this in the next post.

Thank you guys and see you soon.
