Analyzing Dependencies in Complex CDS EntitiesLocate this document in the navigation structure

You use the Dependency Analyzer to view and analyze SQL dependency tree of views when implementing more complex CDS views (based on view on view pattern).


The SQL dependency of data sources can only be calculated for active version of the DDL source.


To open the Dependency Analyzer, proceed as follows:


  1. In the Project Explorer, select the DDL source that includes the CDS view to be analyzed.
  2. Open the context menu and choose Start of the navigation path Open with  Next navigation step Dependency Analyzer End of the navigation path.

    Alternatively, you can open the same context menu from the DDL editor of the relevant CDS entity.


The dependency of data sources involved in the CDS view definition is calculated and displayed in a tree structure (SQL Dependency Tree tab).
