MDO maintenance using UI5 GUI - how to access MDO?

Good mornning community.

I am looking for a  (preferably) generic way of maintaining MDO data using a SAPUI5 GUI.

I found that post dealing with a related topic:

Tufale Ashai gave a very promissing answer.

But what's Tufale meaning by directly calling Illuminator URL?

Is it possible to access MDO directly?

So far, I only used runners to call it seems like there is something else out there.

My idea was to use a UI5 table to display MDO content and use a transaction webservice to return changed values. Somehow Tufales answer seems to be more advanced as to me it seems like MDO is addressed directly.

Can anybody share experience on how to best enable MDO maintenance for Dashboard Users?

Thanks for any pointers!

    Hi Marco,

    Tufale has shared a URL that if you call from ajax method, would run the MDO in the mode specified. This acts as a service that, if run in Select mode, would return you MDO data.

    Hope it helps.

    Best Regards,

    Hi Marco,

    If you are using MII 15.0 then you could use Self Service Composition Environment(SSCE) for dashboard creation. Visualization of almost all MII Objects are supported (be it QueryTemplates, KPI/ MDO/PIC tag objects etc)

    Hence with 15.0 you could either create an MDO Query in Select mode or directly MDO object and visualize it as UI5 table/chart. There by you don't have to be worried about the service to give you data.

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks and Best Regards,

      Hi Ria, thanks for your reply. I am more worried about returning data to MDO. I am looking for some best practice on how to pass changes back to MDO. I am wondering what is best way to do so? But the more I think about, I feel there is no other way than passing some XML to a BLS finally performing the changes...
