Query in HIER Info Object


We have hierarchy as attached:

For each node value, The last value is Customer (eg 02564), and the first value being distribution channel (00/02) and DR01/DR02 is salesorg.

But, the Hierarchy data is in KNVH and hence using zcustsales as Hierarchy Info object which is a template of 0cust_sales, to load in BW.

For zcustsales, salesorg and distribution channel are compounding attr.

  • Because the end values are on customer, should I use 0customer as the Hierarchy object? But no applicable hierarchy for it. Is it fine if I use zcustsales in reports directly?
  • Haven't added any external char to the zcustsales in hierarchies. Is it fine because there are compounding attr? I studied and got to know that if I add distribution channel and salesorg are added there, they come as folders (not posted). What does this exactly mean?
  • Because I need to use node level restriction, while creating analysis object, is it fine if we use ONLY 0TCTAUTHH and zcustsales, or should we also add the other 3 special chars? Any specific standard roles to be added in this when compared to value authorizations?

Please help me with these 3 queries.

Tried to search forum but not one document covers these in detail, most of them are value ones 😔

    Dear Aditya

    1) & 2) If your reporting requirement is to bring the customer as per the Division / sales org then you have to go with Custsales infoobject and the hierarchy has to be on custsales.

    Now the issue when you use a compounded info object is that you can only evaluate the customer in conjunction with a division and sales org.

    3) In the analysis object you need to only relevant authorisation object. if the division and sales org are authorisation relevant you will have to add them also.
