SAP HANA Conversion functions(in Semantic node) - Remove Leading zero

Hi Experts

I am trying to use scalar function which i created to remove leading zero and wanted to use it in conversion function under semantic node but I can not find this function when i search it.

CREATE FUNCTION "AKHATTI".Remove_Leading_Zero (im_Var1 NVARCHAR(20)) 
result := REPLACE(LTRIM(REPLACE(:im_Var1, '0', ' ')), ' ', '0');

The function is working perfect when tested with Select query.

Also I read in another post that this can be achived by adding function in repository but not sure how to add this function to repository, need your help here.

Thank you.

    You can follow the steps in tutorial Create a Scalar User-Defined Function to create a scalar function, which can be used as conversion function in a calc. view. Different from the tutorial you can create the function also without using a XS Project in the Eclipse based tooling. As you are using XS Classic, it is possible to add the function directly in the Eclipses based tooling via the Repositories view in the SAP HANA Development perspective or via the HANA web-based development workbench editor.

    Please consider the restriction, mentioned in the documentation, which describes that conversion functions are not supported by SAP analytic client tools at the moment. E.g. SAP BusinessObjects Lumira or even the data preview in the modeling environment will not consider the conversion functions.
