List Partitioning of table in HANA


We are building a multi customer enterprise software under a single platform. There are possibilities of querying the table for 2 or 3 customer data at a time or probably one customer data for most of the cases. I was trying to implement partitioning of the table with respect to the customer_id or customer_fk in all the tables which might not necessarily be a Primary key.

Could anyone please let me know if there is anything called as list partitioning as provided by Oracle in HANA?

    Nope, up to SPS 9 SAP HANA does not support LIST partitioning.

    You can however, create e.g. a single HASH partition based on the primary key and then implement a second level RANGE partitioning to yield a similar effect.

    Besides that, partitioning might not be a clever choice to separate customer data from each other as the base privileges are based on object access. That means customer A could easily be able to insert data for customer B.

    Rather consider database containers or multiple schemas.
