If you generate a SAP HANA view for an InfoObject that has hierarchies, a SAP HANA view is generated for the hierarchies too.
If the InfoObject is not selected as an InfoProvider, and the External SAP HANA View for Master Data flag is set, an attribute view and an internal hierarchy view are generated. This internal hierarchy view cannot be used in a query.
If the InfoObject is selected as an InfoProvider, and the External SAP HANA View for Master Data flag is set, an attribute view, an internal hierarchy view and a calculation view are generated as a reporting hierarchy view that can be used directly in a BI front end.
The internal hierarchy view is given a name with the following format: <IOBJNM>_HIERARCHY. It is a calculation view of type DIMENSION. It can be used in other SAP HANA views.
The reporting hierarchy view is given a name with the following format: <IOBJNM>_REPORTING_HIERARCHY. It is a calculation view of type CUBE.
It can be used standalone in order to display the characteristic values in a hierarchical structure. The transaction data is aggregated accordingly.
You can use the following input parameters: hieid (hierarchy ID) and keydate (default: current date).
The name of the input help view is HIEID_F4. A subpackage help_view is contained in a content package. Example: <path_set_in_customizing>/help_view/HIEID_F4.
This view is generated with the hierarchy view. For all basic characteristics, the hierarchy IDs with the key and a text with the format <basicchar_name><hier_name><validity> are displayed.
If the input value for parameter hieid does not match any of the characteristic's hierarchies, all characteristic values under the NotAssigned node are displayed in the hierarchy.
