SAP Hybris – Customizing Data Hub

This blog is continuation of SAP Hybris – Data Hub 

Customizing Data Hub

Customizing Data Hub functionality requires custom tools and extensions. With customizations, the Data Hub can do a great variety of data handling operations.


  • A Java IDE. Using the IDE, you create Java source code that is used in your extensions to manipulate data.
  • Apache Maven – Maven is used to manage project dependencies, compilation, and artifact generation.


  • A software extension is a file containing programming that serves to extend the capabilities of or data available to a more basic program.
  • It is a kind of list of commands which are directly included in the program.
  • An extension can contain business logic, type definitions, a web application, or a Hybris Management Console configuration.
  • That way, you link up in one place all of the functionality that covers a certain field of use, for example a webshop.
  • Because extensions are independent of one another by default, you can migrate an extension from one SAP Hybris Commerce version to another.

Custom Extension to populate the data to Datahub

  • To use Maven with Data Hub, add the following two JAR files to your Maven repository.

Step 1:

Go to

Download the following jar file

Step 2:

Go to the path <YOUR_PATH>\datahub6.2

Create the folder named as archetype and copy the above-downloaded file into this folder

Step 3:

Now to go the path <YOUR_PATH>\Hybris\hybris\bin\ext-integration\datahub\sdk and copy the below-highlighted jar file to the above-created archetype folder

Step 4:

Now archetype folder consists of two jar files as shown below

Step 5:

Modify the command as per you version

mvn install:install-file -DgroupId=com.hybris.datahub -DartifactId=datahub-extension-archetype -Dversion= -Dpackaging=jar -Dfile=datahub-extension-archetype- -DgeneratePom=true

Run the command in the <YOUR_PATH>\datahub6.2\archetype

Step 6:

In the same way, modify the file-name and version in the command with the second of the list

modify the command as per you version

mvn install:install-file -DgroupId=com.hybris.datahub -DartifactId=datahub-extension-sdk -Dversion= -Dpackaging=jar -Dfile=datahub-extension-sdk- -DgeneratePom=true

Run the command in the <YOUR_PATH>\datahub6.2\archetype

Step 7:

Now modify the archetype version and SDK version in below command as yours and run the command

mvn archetype:generate -DarchetypeGroupId=com.hybris.datahub -DarchetypeArtifactId=datahub-extension-archetype -DarchetypeVersion= -DartifactId=customproduct -DsdkVersion=

Run the command in the <YOUR_PATH>\datahub6.2\archetype

Step 8:

Open your archetype folder <YOUR_PATH>\datahub6.2\archetype and see that the customproduct named folder is created automatically

Step 9:

In that folder, we can find three folders available where we need to development

Step 10:

Now open eclipse IDE

  •  Select Existing Maven Projects
