Replacing the Source of an Open ODS ViewLocate this document in the navigation structure

On the General tab in the Open ODS View maintenance screen, you can replace the source of the Open ODS view with a different source. Provided that the Open ODS remains consistent after the source is swapped, objects that build on the Open ODS view - queries for example - can still be used.

Procedure

  1. On the General tab, choose Edit under Semantics.

    The wizard for creating the source object appears.

  2. In the Change Source Object wizard step, under Source Type, select which type of source object should be used as the basis for the Open ODS view.
  3. For the source types Database Table or View and Virtual table using SAP HANA Smart Data Access, specify whether an existing SAP HANA or DB connect source system, or a new SAP HANA source system, should be used to access the source object of the Open ODS view.
  4. Choose Next.

    The following wizard steps depend on which source type you have selected and - for the source types Database Table or View and Virtual table using SAP HANA Smart Data Access - whether you use an existing source system or create a new one.

  5. Once you have completed all wizard steps, the Open ODS View editor opens. In the left of the Semantics tab page, the system now displays the source object of the selected new source object. The assignment of source field to field of the Open ODS views is carried out automatically by determining that the names are identical.
  6. Once you have made sure that all fields in the Open ODS view are assigned to suitable fields in the source object, you can save and activate the Open ODS view.
