F1 help for parameters

Hi All,

I was wondering like what we have in abap stack, can we get some kind of description of the database parameters within the studio itself.

Is there a alternate rather than going to help.sap.com and search for the parameter?

    Hi there number-account!

    Currently there (purposely) exists no consolidated parameter documentation for SAP HANA.

    And thus there is no build in help available in SAP HANA studio.

      Hi Lars,

      Finally you have responded back to my thread after a long time. You know me as well 😊 personally

      I am from the old sdn network when we had registered we used to get numbered accounts.

      in future is SAP planning to introduce the same ?

    Hi there, too,

    there is currently no consistent documentation of the system parameters. Some of them are defined in the database .ini files containing the default settings of the system parameters. You can find this location from the SQL Reference, with the "ALTER SYSTEM ALTER CONFIGURATION" statement: SAP HANA Reference: ALTER SYSTEM ALTER CONFIGURATION.

    Be warned, though, that this is not official product documentation, that there might be mistakes, and most importantly that you must not make any changes to these files ever! (Sorry for shouting, but it's so important, I had to).

    I'm not aware of any plans to have parameter documentation in the next few releases. On the long run, there are preparations being made for handling the system configuration not in text files any more, but in a nicer way - but I'm not aware of the concrete plans. I believe it is too early yet to talk about details or schedule.

    Best,

    Richard
