SAP Cloud SDK : Create Custom OVS from Custom Business Object

Hi Experts,

I have requirement to create Custom OVS using Custom Business Object.

My Custom BusinessObject :

businessobject MyBO {

element Cont_ID : ID;

element Cont_type : OTypeCode;


node Item [0,n] {

element Item_ID : ID;




I want to create OVS with the fields Cont_ID , Cont_type and Cont_Desc when open the OVS component.

Cont_IDCont_DescCont_type00001 Contract 1TYPE100002 Contract 2TYPE2

please anyone have idea about this how to create it and use as a public OVS.

Many Thanks,

    In the help document of of Cloud Studio (version 1405) , section "Create an Object Value Selector Dialog Box" explains the steps to create an OVS. By following the steps mentioned in the document I was able to create OVS for a custom BO. Created OVS will not appear in Public OWS. But you can always browse and select your custom OVS for a ObjectValueSelector Type of Input field.

    There're two ways to make this:

    1st one:

    Just add the Object value item, clicking on add > new item > Object Value Selector.

    Then bind the fields that you want to be into the OVS itself and then assign the query from the controller view to the Business Object that you want to use.

    2nd one (easiest):

    Right Click on the BusinessObject > Create Screens > Mark only the OVS option.

    There you go!

    To use this OVS in other object you must change the input value to Object Value Selector and in the Help View you must select the component that you previously created
