Update table via HANA Procedure


I am trying to update a table using a procedure and I tried this from both SQL console and also by creating the procedure from Project explorer option.

I see this message "feature not supported: INSERT/UPDATE/DELETE are not supported in the READ ONLY procedure/function", is there a way to create procedure with update functionality too?

Would any of you guide me if this is a access related message or the update feature is not supported via procedures?

    You also need to enable the ability to create read/write procedures in your HANA system. From the administration console, click on the configuration tab, then expand indexserver.ini then expand repository. Change the value for "sqlscript_mode" to UNSECURE

    Hi all,

    Thanks for all your responses. Summing it up I did the following to make my procedure allow DML statements and be able to debug.

    1. Per SAP note your procedure must be active in order to debug which means you (at least I ) cannot debug repository procedures create from SQL console, correct me if I am wrong.

    You have activated your procedures and they must belong to a project on your local workstation.

    2. I have granted the privileges to my user id (though it is SYSTEM in my case) to do debug and execute DML statements too.

    3. Create the tables in schema in schema other than "SYSTEM" and execute them to make sure the user name and schema name aren't the same.

    Finally got it going.. thanks every one again for your time/effort...Feel free to add your inputs if any!
