Activating CDS View With Parameters

I am currently developing a new report program and would like to use a parameterized CDS view.  However, I am having some difficulty activating the new view with parameters.

Here are the particulars...

  1. Developing on NW 7.4 SP11
  2. Using Eclipse Mars w/ADT 2.51
  3. HANA is our database

I have created the CDS view with two tables and one association, without the parameter for language.  It activates without issue and I can use the Data Preview to view a sample from the view.

If I add a single parameter for language I cannot get the view to activate.  The dialog states is completed successfully, but the icon states that it is not active and I am unable to use the data preview, it short dumps with an error that it cannot find the table.

I am perplexed.  I have met all the requirements for using a CDS view with parameters yet, I cannot seem to make it work.  What am I missing?

Any thoughts are appreciated.

Thank you.

    Hi Justin,

    is there any useful information in the Activation Log? You can view the activation log in AiE via the menu: Navigate > Open Activation Log. Use CTRL and click on the hyperlink to get further details. Search the activation log for errors using the search functionality. If the search box is not visible at the bottom of the view, activate it in the view's menu bar with the button "Show Search Toolbar".

    Kind regards

    Hi Justin,

    we are facing the same problem in a non-HANA environment.

    If you try to add a parameter to an existing CDS view, it will not activate. Another problem is, when you change the structure of the underlying database table, the CDS view with parameter will not activate too. That's what Tobias was writing about.

    Try the following notes:

    Did you change the structure on the underlying table, too, so that it is not active?

    In this case we encountered also problems: activiation not possible.

    Best Regards,
