HANA Packages (HANA)Locate this document in the navigation structure

HANA packages group together related information objects in a structured way. While tables are stored in the catalog (represented by the model root), analytic, attribute, and calculation views must be created in a HANA package.


  1. Select the HANA Package tool and click in the diagram.
  2. Open the property sheet tab, and complete properties as appropriate.
    The following properties are available on the General tab:




    Identify the object. The name should clearly convey the object's purpose to non-technical users, while the code, which is used for generating code or scripts, may be abbreviated, and should not normally include spaces. You can optionally add a comment to provide more detailed information about the object. By default the code is generated from the name by applying the naming conventions specified in the model options. To decouple name-code synchronization, click to release the = button to the right of the Code field.

    Scripting name: Name, Code, Comment

    Use parent namespace

    Specifies that the package does not represent a separate namespace from its parent and thus that objects created within it must have names that are unique within the parent container.

    Scripting name: UseParentNamespace


    Provide a way of loosely grouping objects through tagging. To enter multiple keywords, separate them with commas.

    Scripting name: Keywords

    The following properties are available on the HANA tab:



    Structure package

    Specifies that the package is a structural package.

    Scripting name: Structural


    Specifies the HANA object name.

    Scripting name: _ObjectName_

  3. Click OK to complete the creation of the HANA package.
