Procedure documentationExtending Query Views


With the SAP HANA Live Extension Assistant you can extend the query views. The extended query views are created as a new query view in the package you selected. The tool lists all the underlying reuse views of a selected query view. For each of reuse view, unused columns are displayed and you can select the required columns to be added to output from the underlying reuse view.

You can select the type of newly added view column only as Attribute.

    • HCO_HBA_T_EXTN.tgz

    • SAP HANA Appliance Software Support Package Stack 08 revision 82 or higher

  4. Select a reuse view/extended reuse view.

    All the unused columns are displayed on the right side.

  5. Select the columns that need to be added as output column for the query view.

  6. Click Validate or Activate.

    If you click Validate, you can view the validation status. Click Activate to activate the newly extended query view. Query view is extended with the newly added columns in the corresponding reuse views.

    Note Note

    You cannot extend query views with Unions. For such query views, the underlying reuse views can be replaced if there is corresponding extended reuse view. It is not possible to extend query views that have Aggregation in the middle level other than the top node below semantics layer. But, for such query views, underlying reuse views can be replaced if there is a corresponding reuse view.

    End of the note.
