Conversion Problems - Execute the Querie

edited March 2015 in - XESame

Could somebody help me.

I followed the XeSame - example. My settings you can see in the both screenshots.

The connection to the mySQL DB works.

When I execute the conversion I get the following Errors:

2015-03-09 15:23:14: (PROGRESS) Starting step 1 of 5: initialization.2015-03-09 15:23:15: (PROGRESS) Starting step 2 of 5: Extracting log info.

2015-03-09 15:23:15: (DEBUG) We are about to run the following query to extract the items for Log: SELECT 'TestLog' AS [concept_name], 'standard' AS [lifecycle_model], 'Generation Details' AS [Generation_Details], 'Joos Buijs' AS [Generation_Details_Author], NOW() AS [Generation_Details_generated_on] FROM events.csv AS events   WHERE orderID < 100

2015-03-09 15:23:15: (ERROR) There is an error in the query (turn on 'debug' mode to see it) to fetch the information for Log. Please make sure that the query syntax is valid for the source database.

2015-03-09 15:23:15: (WARNING) Cancelling execution! Just after running the query.

2015-03-09 15:23:15: (NOTICE) Execution safely terminated

I also tried a connection to a postgreSQL 9.4 DB, but it doesn't work, too.It' s another Error Code, but similar --> "the event.csv could not find"

What is my mistake? 




  • Hi, I am using MySQL and my setting for 'URL to database' at Connection tab is something like:jdbc:mysql://IP:PORT/database_name?user=USERNAME&password=PASSWORD Then you can click on Test connection to see if it's ok.

  • Dear Marcel,

    The query in the example is written for the Windows connection to CSV files.

    Since you're using MySQL (I'm assuming that you imported the csv files to the corresponding tables), the query does not work. Off the top of my head, it might have something to do with the '[' and ']', as specified in the "SQL Query Columns Seperator" in the connection settings tab. You might want to try to have both of these seperator fields empty.

    Please let us know if this works.
