Compounding Parent in CP based on HANA view

Dear gurus!

I am facing an issue while creating a Composite Provider based on an HANA view.

Here is the context. I had to create several joins on DSOs and cubes in my BW. I used HANA views to do that.

Now I expose this view to create a Composite Provider on top of my HANA view. Everything is going well, but but when I try to make the association between the fields of the view and the IO that are supposed to be below, I have some trouble with the compounded objects.

As an example I have identified field 0WORKCENTER to the corresponding IO. I did the same thing for 0PLANT which is the compounding characteristic of 0WORKCENTER. When I try yo activate the CP, it tells me there is a Compounding Parent 0PLANT missing for field 0WORKCENTER

How can I by pass this error ?

By the way I have the same issue with ratios using currency or unit of measures....

    Hi Pierre

    If you ever use a compounded InfoObject, then you will have to include both the main InfoObject (0WORKCENTER) and the compounded one(0PLANT) in your InfoProvider - Composite Provider in this case.

    That is because 0WORKCENTER-0PLANT combination is the key for that InfoObject for its all the attributes to be read for reporting and other purposes. If you do not have a need for any reporting attributes of this InfoObject and just need to map your workcenter, you need to either look for another InfoObject or create a custom one in BW and then map to it.
