SuperWEB2 users can download data from Table View in a variety of formats, including SDMX (Statistical Data and Metadata eXchange) Version 2.0:
The two available SDMX options are:
- An archive (.zip) file containing the SDMX data set (.xml) and the SDMX structure definition (.xml).
- SDMX structure definition (.xml).
Unlike downloads to Excel and CSV formats, which save wafers, SDMX downloads save cubes.
Configure SDMX Branding
There are a number of parameters you can configure in <tomcat_home>\webapps\webapi\WEB-INF\web.xml. These can be found in the following section:
The parameters are as follows:
The SDMX agency ID. This value will be used in the SDMX
The Agency ID is also written to the codelists in the SDMX structure definition file.
|A-Z, a-z, 0-9, -, _, : and '.'|
|The SDMX agency name. The Agency ID and Agency Name are written to the sender field in the headers of the SDMX structure definition file and the SDMX data file.||A-Z, a-z, *, @, 0-9, _, -and $|
|The user generated agency ID. This is written to the Agency ID field of the KeyFamilies section of the SDMX structure definition file.||A-Z, a-z, *, @, 0-9, _, -and $|
|The Relative Standard Error ID.||A-Z, a-z, *, @, 0-9, _, -and $|
Scaling Descriptions and Other Text Strings Used in SDMX Downloads
There are a number of text strings used in SDMX downloads that you can modify. These are defined in the database_labels.properties configuration file (located in <tomcat_home>\webapps\webapi\WEB-INF\classes).
There may be multiple copies of this file, with names like database_labels_en.properties, and database_labels_de.properties. These define the text for the different user interface languages, so if you want to make changes, you will need to apply these to multiple versions of the file, translated for each user interface language in use on your deployment. See Multilingual and Localisation Support - SuperWEB2 for more information about localisation and how SuperWEB2 uses the properties files.
The following strings are available to be customised:
You can also set the survey date for the dataset. The survey date will be output to the
<Time> element in the SDMX download. For example:
To configure the survey date, use the following command in SuperADMIN:
<dataset_id>is the ID of the dataset you want this date to apply to.
<date>is the date in ISO-8601 format: YYYY-MM-DD
For example, the following command sets the survey date for the Retail Banking dataset:
